The less well-known history of the world

weeping angel

You have coffee? This is going to take some time. There might be another light post at 13:00, jazz is planned in the evening.

The business of Nice, Turkey and Bataclan led this blogger to a map of the area, which included Istanbul, which led to exploring Constantinople and the Hagia Sophia, which led to the Byzantine Empire, which naturally led to the Franks or Latins of later Byzantine times, which led back to the Franks and the Venetians in 1099, which led back to the Merovingians and Clovis, of whom much has been written, which led back to the mystery religions.


There have always been two European/Mediterranean/Holy Land histories running one beneath the other – that on the surface being the known-known, acknowledged by historians, taught in schools and openly found in our great libraries.

There is a second though – a hidden, arcane or even occult history which Paul Burrell indicated the Queen was well aware of, and to know of that, one needs to join the Masons or Shriners or consult a pagan adept.

And this is the history which motivates Them, the PTB, of western nations, just as Gaia motivates the Greens. An gnostic and pagan might call it pagan, a Christian calls it satanic. It may well be fruitcake stuff but that’s not the point – the point is that the movers and shakers of history have been steeped in that arcane history, along with the packaged version in libraries.

And in these fair isles, that arcane history is powerful still – ask Kate Bush or the Scottish rite. It is the unwillingness or unknowingness of people to acknowledge it, to concede that this land is far from the godfearing Christendom the bourgeois liked to think it was which leaves us open, over and over and over.

Then there is the alternative history of Islam as well, not the main subject of this post. If seen as the satanic cult it is, springing from the ziggurats of the fertile belt all those millennia ago, then the throwback nature of Islam becomes far easier to understand. It becomes far easier to understand the Bataclan atrocity, where people were not just murdered with glee but some were taken upstairs for fiendish embellishments, if you understand who these people’s god really is.

The bourgeois can neither get their heads around that, nor do they wish to … and so they haven’t, as it’s been in no one’s interest that they do understand.

Being imbued with the explorer nature of the people of this land, plus when one has a Judaeo-Christian perspective, as distinct from a Church perspective, then some things become quite clear.

One factor severely limiting understanding of the world are the so-called Enlightenment values of Science or the values of classical learning which have so dominated learning in the past 240 odd years, such that many of our hardheaded readers won’t give a moment’s time to the metaphysical backstory to what they see before their eyes.

Behind world events is a modus operandi which has never altered and which has threatened to derail society over and over. This is why society has declined to this extent suddenly, meaning post-war.

The natural defences have been removed by people hellbent on utopian constructs which refuse to recognize reality and yet they’re convinced that they are the font of reason and empiricism. This is also behind all the leftist constructions which drive us spare.

Reality does contain the arcane as a sub-text, because it is that which has driven all major events and situations in history. It’s been the consequences of those motivating forces which have then been written up as the incomplete histories schoolchildren meet.

And when Nice is written up, there will be those saying it was “just a nutter”, ignoring that which was in his head, something in many heads today … and so easily known of and understood, if people would just wake up.

Where to start?

The Crusades is as good as any.

It’s perfectly obvious to an adherent of Christianity, meaning the faith, as distinct from the bricks and mortar Church, the high-hats and chanting, that there is this counter-faith, a dark side, running beneath it in the shadows, infiltrating it and always has been.

It’s manifested itself in many forms, from the Egyptian Anubis, Ea and Set to the Assyrian and Babylonian deities and of course, to Nimrod and Semiramis. It was in the Ba’al of Canaan.

In far-flung lands, it manifested itself in paganism, Diana, Astarte.  Gnosticism is oblique to that again. The legend of the Once and Future King might be a colourful storyline for a film and that’s that for most but it’s very real for significant people in places of power in this land.

We really need to divest ourselves of the notion that it is just some loons on the solstice at Stonehenge or on top of that mountain awaiting the Mayan endtime or just Kate Bush’s witchery or Macbeth. It is people in a position to alter world events who are the true fanatics and nowhere is that truer than in the Masonic lodges above the third degree.

What possesses a grown adult to indulge in that sort of thing? To roll up a trouser leg seems a bizarre ritual but the true background to it is nasty. And with the advent of the net, we now have the double-edged sword of knowledge.

You could call this parallel or ‘false dawn’ history or world view as sinister or of the left side, historically heavily into gobbledegook, sacrifices, chanting, high camp garb, pointy hats, symbolism beyond, always forming hierarchies in matters of faith and militaristic in its organization.

The other side, the average joes, were once into simple piety and still live “blameless lives of bourgeois domesticity”.

To understand the Crusades, we need to go back further:

The Merovingian dynasty

During the final century of Merovingian rule, the kings were increasingly pushed into a ceremonial role … , yearly warfare often did not constitute general devastation but took on an almost ritual character, with established ‘rules’ and norms … as Rouche points out, “When the King died, his property was divided equally among his heirs as though it were private property: the kingdom was a form of patrimony.” Some scholars have attributed this to the Merovingians’ lacking a sense of res publica, but other historians have criticized this view as an oversimplification.

I’d say not an oversimplification but a lack of understanding of who these people actually were. That will unfold.

This system developed in time into feudalism … Merovingian law did not admit of the concept of creating new law, only of maintaining tradition … Merovingian kings and queens used the newly forming ecclesiastical power structure to their advantage. Monasteries and episcopal seats were shrewdly awarded to elites who supported the dynasty. Extensive parcels of land were donated to monasteries to exempt those lands from royal taxation and to preserve them within the family. The family maintained dominance over the monastery by appointing family members as abbots.

Women played a large part as matriarchs, just as the occult orders today have grand matriarchs in a way the Christian tradition does not.

The most characteristic form of Merovingian literature is represented by the lives of the saints. Merovingian hagiography did not set out to reconstruct a biography in the Roman or the modern sense, but to attract and hold popular devotion by the formulas of elaborate literary exercises, through which the Frankish Church channelled popular piety within orthodox channels, defined the nature of sanctity and retained some control over the posthumous cults that developed spontaneously at burial sites, where the life-force of the saint lingered, to do good for the votary … the vitae et miracula, for impressive miracles were an essential element of Merovingian hagiography.

Clovis was the first king to have been baptized a Christian.

But his tradition and modus operandi was anything but Christian, in the sense of personal piety, community bonding and scriptural values. Instead, after adoption of the name, it was heavily into pageantry and gobbledegook or as Jesus said – vain repetitions.

It was highly ritualistic. Many daily activities centred around the multiple deities, chiefest of which may have been the Quinotaur, a water-god from whom the Merovingians were reputed to have derived their ancestry.[38] Most of their gods were linked with local cult centres and their sacred character and power were associated with specific regions, outside of which they were neither worshipped nor feared. Most of the gods were “worldly”, possessing form and having connections with specific objects, in contrast to the God of Christianity.[39]

All sorts of connections can be made, for example, with the ancient Hyksos:

Finally a point was reached when one group of leaders came to the same conclusion as Pepin the Short did in the Merovingian kingdom so many centuries later when he posed the question whether it was right that one of royal race and who bore the title king but who exercised no effective power in the kingdom should continue to bear the title of king. These Hyksos leaders thereupon took matters into their own hands, attacked and overran the administrative capital at Memphis, and proceeded to make themselves pharaohs.

Themselves. Not himself. They were a politburo. There is a northern Italian city state of the time which used a similar set-up – Venice. More on that later. Politburo, left, sinister. Not as spurious as it seems. Later.

And we can’t leave the Hyksos without this:

It should be noted that Seqenera Tao has been proposed as the legendary Hiram Abif by the authors of the book The Hiram Key. Per the authors Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, Hiram Abif (the master mason of King Solomon’s Temple in masonic lore) can be traced to the historical personage of Seqenenra.

In short, we are speaking here of the secret of kingmaking. Any high Mason knows of these things and why kingmaking was not just about a king on a throne but a leader who is steeped in the ancient mysteries … or the occult … before he has any chance of taking power.

Just as in the US with almost all presidents in the C20th, just as in the UK where only Bilderberg approved become leader.

conversion of clovis

The Merovingian and by extension later, the Frankish or Latin warlike class was a military society. Above all, the Latins were known for callousness and cruelty, even barbarism, even fiendish embellishment above and beyond ordinary cruelty. Two reminders:

The Crusaders looted, terrorized, and vandalized Constantinople for three days, during which many ancient and medieval Roman and Greek works were either stolen or destroyed. The famous bronze horses from the Hippodrome were sent back to adorn the façade of St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, where they remain.

As well as being stolen, works of immeasurable artistic value were destroyed merely for their material value. One of the most precious works to suffer such a fate was a large bronze statue of Hercules, created by the legendary Lysippos, court sculptor of no less than Alexander the Great. Like so many other priceless artworks made of bronze, the statue was melted down for its content by the Crusaders. The great Library of Constantinople was destroyed as well.[9]

Those are not the actions of Christians. Nor were these:

Despite their oaths and the threat of excommunication, the Crusaders systematically violated the city’s holy sanctuaries, destroying or stealing all they could lay hands on; nothing was spared, not even the tombs of the emperors inside the St Apostles church.The civilian population of Constantinople were subject to the Crusaders’ ruthless lust for spoils and glory; thousands of them were killed in cold blood.

Women, even nuns, were raped by the Crusader army, which also sacked churches, monasteries and convents.The very altars of these churches were smashed and torn to pieces for their gold and marble by the warriors who had sworn to fight in service of the Pope without question.

Although the Venetians engaged in looting too, their actions were far more restrained.Doge Dandolo still appeared to have far more control over his men. Rather than wantonly destroying all around like their comrades, the Venetians stole religious relics and works of art, which they would later take to Venice to adorn their own churches.

Actions of that Frankish kind are from an entirely different tradition to the Christianized Rome and certainly to the Venetians, who were primarily into wealth. And quite different to the Byzantines. The Franks were into carnage and bestial horror, not unlike this group in modern times:

Bataclan …

… suppressed by the French government at the time and not released to the media, the killers in the Bataclan tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.

Police witnesses in Parliament said they vomited when they saw the disfigured bodies.

Wahhabist killers apparently gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were stabbed in the genitals – and all the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda.

For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.

What I’m getting at here is that this is not just carnage, this has an element to it of the fiendish embellishment, that has occurred at different times of history and signifies something satanic. A Nazi army officer may have strung up 20 villagers as a lesson but Mengele was into inhuman experimentation. It’s the same motif in the Bourne films. It was the same in Darfur – it is the embellishments which set this behaviour apart.

The crusaders accepted the suggestion that in lieu of payment they assist the Venetians in the capture of the (Christian) port of Zara in Dalmatia (vassal city of Venice, which had rebelled and placed itself under Hungary’s protection in 1186).[155]

The city fell in November 1202 after a brief siege.[156] Innocent tried to forbid this political attack on a Christian city, but was ignored. Reluctant to jeopardise his own agenda for the Crusade, he gave conditional absolution to the crusaders—not, however, to the Venetians.[154]

That these Crusaders could combine with the exploiters of usury and the originators of banking as a system may have shocked Innocent but neither the Venetians, Franks nor I are in the least surprised, given that neither of the former were Christian, in real terms, by nature.

There is an alternative history of the Merovingians from the other side and as such, it cannot be corroborated, as it’s not the standard historian’s chapter and verse. Take it or leave it:

The first kings of France were the Merovingians (c. 500 – 751 AD), a Frankish dynasty started by the chieftain Meroveg, said to be descended from the union of a sea creature and a French queen and following the pagan cult of Diana.

The Merovingians planned to rule the world from their future throne at Jerusalem, claiming to come from the tribe of Judah through Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. However, the weight of evidence indicates that they were really descended from the tribe of Dan.

The Pont de l’Alma site in Paris is ancient and dates back to the Merovingian kings and before. In pre-Christian times, the Pont de l’Alma was an underground chamber and was used as a pagan sacrificial site. In Middle English, “soul” has, as its etymology, “descended from the sea.”

“Pont” has, as a Latin root, “pontifex”, meaning a Roman high priest. “Alma” also is Spanish for “soul or spirit”. One translation of Pont del’ Alma would be “Bridge of the Soul.” It was believed that those who died at the sacrificial site became saintly and went directly to heaven.

In August, 1997, a Mercedes carrying Princess Diana and the son of an Arab business tycoon, Dodi Fayed, smashed into the 13th pillar of the Pont de 1’Alma. In trying to save Diana’s life, after the torturously slow ride to the hospital – it took forty minutes to travel the 3.8 miles – the doctors had to work on and massage her heart, so her chest was cut open from collarbone to navel.

The perspicacious among you will know that that is a Masonic punishment.

Knights Templar

Merovaeus was King of the Salian Franks. It is believed by some historians that this dynasty was descended from Jesus and Mary Magdalene, and that the blood-line has continued down through the centuries to the present day.

Organisations which seem to been involved in its continuation and protection of this bloodline include the Knights Templar and the secret society of the Priory of Sion, whose Grand Masters are said to include Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo and Claude Debussy.

During the Crusades, the Crusaders did battle with the Moslems and this resulted in the capture of Jerusalem around 1099. This Holy City now belonged to the Crusaders and all Christendom rejoiced.

Interesting that “Christendom” rejoiced because it was distinctly the other side to Christians who had carried out unspeakable horrors. Not to mention the way they then ran down Byzantium until the inevitable takeover by the arch-infidels [in Christian eyes] – the Moslems.

There are three quite separate forces in the area. There are the people themselves of course, then there are the Muslims … and then there is this bestial class – the satanic PTB or Them. And Them have never changed, not at any time in history – same modus operandi whatever they do, same motifs. To continue:

The highways and byways leading to Jerusalem  were unprotected. The ferocity of the Moslems seemed to increase with the fall of the city, and mutilated bodies and bleached bones of pilgrims soon became a common site along the roadways. To add to the vulnerability of the pilgrims, thousands of the Crusaders, their primary objective accomplished, returned to their own lands, leaving the countryside to the Moslems uncontested.

It was the carnage and bestiality which counted. They cared not a fig for the land or people there. The pilgims were a different lot altogether.

This was the circumstance that set the stage for the Knights Templar. They were formed as a result of a small band of Crusaders remaining after the conquest, who recognized the plight of the pilgrims and bound themselves in a Holy Brotherhood in Arms, entering into a solemn agreement to aid one another in clearing the highways, and in protecting the pilgrims through the pathways and cuttings of the mountains to the Holy City.

In short, these knights were laymen who protected and defended Christians travelling to Jerusalem. They took vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and were renowned for their fierceness and courage in battle.

The Templars were pious men.


In fact, many Templars were of Palestinian birth, spoke perfect Arabic, and were familiar with every religious sect, cult, and magical doctrine, including that of the Islamic Assassins. The Grand Master Philip of Nablus (1167 A.D.) was a Syrian.

In 1118 A.D., nineteen years after the first successful Crusade, these Poor Fellow Soldiers of Jesus Christ, as they had termed themselves, were officially recognized and sanctioned and were given for their headquarters a building on Mount Moriah, the site of the former Temple of King Solomon. Consequently, they became known as the Knights of the Temple, or Knights Templar.

Symbolism, ritual, replacing simple piety.

The Knights Templar had their vicissitudes through the centuries, with more downs than ups on the battlefield. They had been the ‘poor’ fellow soldiers.

Now, in honour of their elite status among the nobles of Europe, Pope Innocent II issued a Papal Bull in 1139 granting the Templars diplomatic immunity throughout Europe, a practice still enjoyed by the members of today’s diplomatic elite who very often have brotherhood affiliations themselves.

According to this edict, the Templars would submit to no power in church or state but the Pope himself, though evidence would suggest that the Templars exercised control over the Pope and continue to do so through an organization known as P2 (Propaganda 2) Freemasonry.

The Templars were now a law unto themselves, an anonymous, transnational empire, superseding the power of sovereign states. They now had diplomatic immunity, were exempt from taxation, and were bound by none of the customs or laws of any nation state. Their landholdings were exceeded only by the Church.

This wealth gave them control over Europe’s emerging capitalist system. They were, in effect, the world’s first international financiers. No one else had the power to transfer investment and capital from one state to another tax-free. Accumulated investment capital alone would have given them the money to finance everything from construction projects to wars. In addition, they were the first international arms dealers and traders.

Their treasury became too large to escape the notice of some financially embarrassed rulers, especially Philip the Fair, King of France. Philip the Fair, with Pope Clement, arranged for the Convocation of the Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Jacques DeMolay and his officers in Paris.

In 1314, on a Friday the 13th, Jacques De Molay was slowly cooked at the stake for alleged heresy and dozens of other accusations; all Knight Templar wealth which could be found was seized and Templary “moved underground.”

The gruesome end of the last Templar Grand Master also helped to perpetuate the future occultist mystique of the order.

on and on and on

And so to the Venetians


At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. During most of the past 2,500 years, oligarchs have been identified by their support for the philosophical writings of Aristotle and their rejection of the epistemology of Plato.

Aristotle asserted that slavery is a necessary institution, because some are born to rule and others to be ruled. He also reduced the question of human knowledge to the crudest sense certainty and perception of “facts.” Aristotle’s formalism is a means of killing human creativity, and therefore represents absolute evil. This evil is expressed by the bestialist view of the oligarchs that human beings are the same as animals.

Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting at the expense of technological advancement and physical production. Oligarchs have always been associated with the arbitrary rejection of true scientific discovery and scientific method in favor of open anti-science or more subtle obscurantist pseudo-science.

Parallels, parallels.

The oligarchy has believed for millennia that the Earth is overpopulated; the oligarchical commentary on the Trojan War was that this conflict was necessary in order to prevent greater numbers of mankind from oppressing “Mother Earth.” They’ve constantly stressed race and racial characteristics, often as a means for justifying slavery.

In international affairs, oligarchs recommend such methods as geopolitics, understood as the method of “divide and conquer,” which lets one power prevail by playing its adversaries one against the other. Oligarchical policy strives to maintain a balance of power among such adversaries for its own benefit, but this attempt always fails in the long run and leads to new wars.

The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence.

Examples of this are the fourteenth-century Black Plague and the Thirty Years War (1618-48), both of which have links to Venetian intelligence.

The post-industrial society and the derivatives crisis in our own time have brought about the potential for a new collapse of civilization. This crisis can only be reversed by repudiating in practice the axioms of the oligarchical mentality.

A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune, or fondo, as it is called in Italian. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune.

Some more history, to stretch your patience

The long and tortuous path of peoples through history sees the Khazars in the Holy Land and part of the Canaanites eventually in northern Italy, adopting the name “Sepharvaim” for deceptive purposes. They later became known as Venetians, and by marrying into European royalty and aristocracy, the “black nobility.”

In the pre-Christian world around the Mediterranean, oligarchical political forces included Babylon in Mesopotamia. The “whore of Babylon” condemned in the Apocalypse of St. John the Divine, is not a mystical construct, but a very specific cartel of oligarchical families.

Other oligarchical centres included Hiram of Tyre and the Phoenicians. The Persian Empire was an oligarchy. In the Greek world, the center of oligarchical banking and intelligence was the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, whose agents included Lycurgus of Sparta and, later, Aristotle.

In Venice, the largest fondo was the endowment of the Basilica of St. Mark, which was closely associated with the Venetian state treasury, and which absorbed the family fortunes of nobles who died without heirs. This fondo was administered by the procurers of St. Mark, whose position was one of the most powerful under the Venetian system.

Around this central fondo were grouped the individual family fortunes of the great oligarchical families, such as the Mocenigo, the Cornaro, the Dandolo, the Contarini, the Morosini, the Zorzi, and the Tron.

When the Venetian oligarchy transferred many of its families and assets to northern Europe, the Venetian fondi provided the nucleus of the great Bank of Amsterdam, which dominated Europe during the Seventeenth century, and of the Bank of England, which became the leading bank of the Eighteenth century.

Venice was the enemy of Charlemagne. Charlemagne’s son, King Pepin of Italy, tried unsuccessfully to conquer the Venetian lagoon. Charlemagne was forced to recognize Venice as a part of the eastern or Byzantine Empire, under the protection of the Emperor Nicephorus. Venice was never a part of Western Civilization.

Over the next four centuries, Venice developed as a second capital of the Byzantine Empire through marriage alliances with certain Byzantine dynasties and conflicts with the Holy Roman Empire based in Germany. The Venetian economy grew through usury and slavery.

By 1082, the Venetians had tax-free trading rights in the entire Byzantine Empire.

The Venetians were one of the main factors behind the Crusades against the Muslim power in the eastern Mediterranean. In the Fourth Crusade of AD 1202, the Venetians used an army of French feudal knights to capture and loot Constantinople, the Orthodox Christian city which was the capital of the Byzantine Empire.

As was referred to in gruesome detail further up.

During the 1200s, the Venetians, now at the apex of their military and naval power, set out to create a new Roman Empire with its centre at Venice. They expanded into the Greek islands, the Black Sea, and the Italian mainland. They helped to defeat the Hohenstaufen rulers of Germany and Italy. Venetian intelligence assisted Genghis Khan as he attacked and wiped out powers that had resisted Venice.

The Venetians caused the death of the poet and political figure Dante Alighieri, who developed the concept of the modern sovereign nation-state in opposition to the Venetian plans for empire. A series of wars with Genoa led later to the de facto merger of Venice and Genoa. The Venetian bankers, often called Lombards, began to loot many parts of Europe with usurious loans.

Henry III of England, in the years after 1255, became insolvent after taking huge Lombard loans to finance foreign wars, at 120-180 percent interest. These transactions created the basis for the Venetian Party in England.

When the Lombard bankers went bankrupt because the English failed to pay, a breakdown crisis of the European economy ensued. This led to a new collapse of European civilization, including the onset of the Black Plague, which depopulated the continent.

In the midst of the chaos, the Venetians encouraged their ally Edward III of England, to wage war against France in the conflict that became the Hundred Years War (1339-1453), which hurled France into chaos before St. Joan of Arc defeated the English.

This was then followed by the Wars of the Roses in England. As a result of Venetian domination, the fourteenth century had become a catastrophe for European civilization.

In the midst of the crisis of the 1300s, the friends of Dante and Petrarch laid the basis for the Italian Golden Renaissance, which reached its culmination with Nicolaus of Cusa, Pope Pius II, and the Medici-sponsored Council of Florence of 1439.

The Venetians fought the Renaissance with a policy of expansion on the Italian mainland, or terra firma, which brought them to the outskirts of Milan. More fundamentally, the Venetians promoted the pagan philosophy of Aristotle against the Christian Platonism of the Florentines.

Around AD1400, European power centres coalesced into two camps: the Ghibellines, who supported the Hohenstaufen family, and the Guelphs, from Welf, the German prince who competed with Frederick for control of the Holy Roman Empire. The Pope allied himself with the Guelphs.

All modern European history stems directly from the struggle between these two powers.

The Guelphs are also called the Neri, Black Guelphs, or Black Nobility, and supported William of Orange in his seizure of the throne of England, which eventually resulted in the formation of the Bank of England and the East India Company.

When Cusa and his friends succeeded in reuniting the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox and other eastern churches at the Council of Florence, the Venetians tried to sabotage this result.

The Venetians tried to use the power of the new nation-states, especially France, to crush Milan and allow further Venetian expansion. But ambassadors for the king of France and the Austrian emperor met at Cambrai in December 1508 and agreed to create a European league for the dismemberment of Venice.

An immediate target of the Venetians had always been Milan and a broader target – the papacy.

The reformation as a ploy

The leading figure of the Protestant Reformation, the first Protestant in modern Europe, was Venice’s Cardinal Gasparo Contarini, who was also the leader of the Catholic Counter-Reformation.

Contarini was a pupil of the Padua Aristotelian Pietro Pomponazzi, who denied the immortality of the human soul. Contarini pioneered the Protestant doctrine of salvation by faith alone, with no regard for good works of charity.

He organized a group of Italian Protestants, called gli spirituali, including oligarchs like Vittoria Colonna and Giulia Gonzaga. Contarini’s networks encouraged and protected Martin Luther and later John Calvin of Geneva. Contarini sent his neighbor and relative Francesco Zorzi to England to support King Henry VIII’s plan to divorce Catherine of Aragon.

As the Counter-Reformation advanced, the Contarini networks split into two wings –  the pro-Protestant spirituali, who later evolved into the giovani and who serviced growing networks in France, Holland, England, and Scotland.

The other wing were the zelanti, oriented toward repression and the Inquisition, and typified by Pope Paul IV Caraffa. The zelanti evolved into the oligarchical party called the vecchi, who serviced Venetian networks in the Vatican and the Catholic Hapsburg dominions.

The apparent conflict of the two groups was orchestrated to serve Venetian projects.

Pause for breath

The obvious criticism here is that this seems to be giving inordinate credit for influence to the Venetians when there were homegrown oligarchs and tyrants in all the nation states, all pursuing their own dreams of expansion and conquest.

This is so but other factors have to be born in mind – the Lombards who were financing all European powers at the time against one another, the Papacy which meant [until Henry VIII] that dictums were coming constantly from Italy and the church had had, for centuries, a most powerful grip on the hearts and minds of men and women all over Europe and then there was the intrigue, the intelligence services and the intermarrying into the great families of Europe by the Venetians themselves.

Henry’s marriage to Catherine illustrates in itself the extent to which the English monarchy was in no way head-in-the-sand and isolationist.  Look at how the Reformation came to England.

Exactly who were and who are these intermarried families conencted to the Venetians?

The old-line ruling families who believe that they have the right to rule the world because they are descended from the emperors of the ancient Roman and so-called ‘holy’ Roman Empires consist of 13-15 ‘blue blood’ families, which include: Rothschild; Kuhn; Loeb; Lehman; Rockefeller; Sach; Warburg; Lazard; Seaf; Goldman; Schiff; Morgan; Schroeder; Bush and Harriman.

Other names are: the Giustiniani family, of Rome and Venice who trace their lineage to the Emperor Justianian; Sir Jocelyn Hambro of Hambros (Merchant) Bank; Pierpaolo Luzzatti Fequiz, whose lineage dates back six centuries to the most ancient Luzzatos, of Venice, and Umberto Ortolani of the ancient Black Nobility family of the same name.

Other old Venetian Black Nobility and board members of ASG and RAS are the Doria family, the financiers of the Spanish Hapsburgs, Elie de Rothschild of the French Rothschild family, Baron August von Finck (Finck, the second richest man in Germany now deceased), Franco Orsini Bonacassi of the ancient Orsini that traces its lineage to an ancient Roman senator of the same name, the Alba family whose lineage dates back to the great Duke of Alba, and Baron Pierre Lambert, a cousin of the Belgian Rothschild family.

Has anyone ever stopped to think what the Holy Roman Empire actually meant?

Back to the story

The power of the Guelphs would extend through the Italian financial centres to the north of France in Lombardy. Lombard in German means “deposit bank”, and the Lombards were bankers to the entire Medieval world. They would later transfer operations north to Hamburg, then to Amsterdam and finally to London.

The Guelphs would start the slave trade to the colonies. The Guelphs, in order to aid their control of finance and politics, would perpetuate gnostic cults which eventually developed into the Rosicrucians, Unitarians, the Fabian Society and the World Council of Churches.

The East India company, together with John Stuart Mill, would finance the University of London. A friend of Mill, historian George Grote, a founder of London University donated £6000 for the study of “mental health”, which began the worldwide “mental health” movement.

Banca Commerciale d’Italia, Banca Privata, Banco Ambrosiano, the Netherlands Bank, Barclays Bank, Banco del Colombia, Banco de Ibero-America.

Of special interest is Banca del la Svizzeria Italiana (BSI) – since it handles flight capital investments to and from the United States – primarily in dollars and US bonds – located and isolated in “neutral” Lugano, the flight capital center for the Venetian Black Nobility. Lugano is not in Italy nor in Switzerland, and is a kind of twilight zone for shady flight capital operations. George Ball, who owns a large block of stock in BSI, is a prominent “insider” and the bank’s US representative.

A bit more:

In the  1822 Treaty of Verona (between Austria, France, Prussia and Russia) the Jesuits agreed to smash the US Constitution and suppress the freedom of the US.

Their methods included destroying free speech, destroying and suppressing the press, universal censorship, sustaining the cooperation of the Pope and clergy to use religion to help keep nations in passive obedience and financing wars against countries with representative governments.

The monarchs who signed this treaty were ultimately deposed. Most of these families are very wealthy and may be more powerful today than when they sat upon thrones. They are known collectively as the Black Nobility. Privately these families refuse to recognize any right to rule except their own.

The fact that this treaty was made long ago does not mean it is void. The treaty was placed in the Congressional Record on April 25, 1916 by Senator Owen.


Italy and in particular, Venice, is very important strategically because 1.  it is the closest to the middle-east and 2. it is a gateway for drugs entering Europe from Iran and Lebanon.

After the Club of Rome was established in 1968, a body which is from this black nobility, all sorts of things began in a socialist manner – the Paris uprising, the Red Brigades, the fall of various regimes and the Aldo Moro case, which investigators found had old families somehow interested in the issue for not entirely clear reasons.

The Club of Rome’s Peccei headed the Atlantic Institute’s Economic Council for three decades while he was the Chief Executive Officer for Giovanni Agnellis’ Fiat Motor Company, Agnelli, a member of an ancient Italian family, playing a leading role in development projects in the Soviet Union.

The Club of Rome is an umbrella organization for Anglo-American financiers and the old families of Europe, particularly in London, Venice and Genoa.

It also began the EU, not in that name.

One of their members, Etienne D’Avignon, was assigned the task of collapsing the steel industry in the US and as the Treaty of Verona showed, the European families have quite an interest in the U.S.A. and vice versa – hence the congressional record entry.

More difficult to establish is Jacques Soustelle, financed by the Swiss Oltramaire family, who ran one of the assassination centres from Confederation Helvetica.  Another interesting snippet, to me, was Richard Gardner marrying into the old families in Italy and providing yet more connections between Italy and the States.

This is not all about money.  It’s also about culture and science and this conflict plays a huge role in the major societal movements in modern history.

All European history since the fifteenth century within Europe and globally, has been dominated by the cultural conflict between the radiated influence of the Renaissance and the opposing, Venice-launched force of the so-called Enlightenment.

This is the power up against which we are trying to pit ourselves, our power base only the legitimacy of the people themselves.  In the light of all the above, the doings of the last few weeks can be evaluated.

The question I’ve always asked myself is – why is there this warrior and decadent class above, always hawks, always corrupt, and who voted for them anyway? Seqenera Tao? The Merovingians? How did they get to be the power?

There is an answer and you’ll not like it. To this point, the post has steered close to the edge but not gone over it. Now it will go over it.

I see the books of the old and new testaments as documents. You can argue over Mark, argue over the authorship or dating of this or that. They’re all from before the C2ndAD anyway. They are documents. They were written by people of the time.

And in the one called Genesis, reference is made to the giants, the ones who mated with human women. Now, you can write tomes on the origins of kingship – I’m happy enough to adopt the Annunaki, the Watchers as the source.  Thus they will perpetuate themselves, thus they have common characteristics down through the ages, seemingly inhuman in their contempt for humankind, in their bestial cruelty. Thus they are very like the monarchs stretching from the earliest times on.

You can pooh-pooh that but what are your sources are for doing that?  Myth, legend, history – what about Egyptian mythology? Are they also documented? I’m not arguing over it because neither you nor I were there and we don’t know. But it’s certainly an explanation for why this lot have never been displaced as a class for long.

It also explains the quite nasty nature of how they behave at leisure:

The further you go into that case, the greater the horror at just how far those grown men would go with children. Dutroux was but one small part of it, the fall guy.

The motif, the modus operandi, remains the same. Dead easy to pick one of Them. The philosophy, the religion, is that of the Assassins – murder, rape, horror, conflagration, utter disrespect for the human being and at the same time – chest thumping self-aggrandisement, restlessness, the desire to accrue.

And always insanity – criminal insanity. This is the Crusades, the Inquisitions, the world wars, Blair’s war, Vietnam, the nation’s youth drugged out or vacuous snowflakes – if you can’t destroy them or get them to destroy each other, then make them useless.

And it’s not new – it is precisely the same entity, let him introduce himself, the same entity who was there on the ziggurat plains and at the foot of the mountain when Moses came down again.

And the poor fools pursuing this political correctness in the name of love – it’s anything but love, in the name of fairness – it’s anything but fair, in the name of diversity – it’s anything but diverse, it is trying to create a one-size-fits-all human soup.

And an observer can see the vicious and petulant madness behind it, the most vulnerable being the loudest tin cans.

Everything in this post has been about exactly the same phenomena, the same errors, wherever they were found throughout history.

There is a solution … but few want to know.

    A very interesting and informative read on this Sunday morning over croissants and coffee. It certainly makes my own research seem a very minor effort but adds to my knowledge considerablly for that I thank you James.

    I was expecting to see a mention of Rennes-le-Chateau but I suppose Boudet and Sauniere were only minor bit players on this global stage. Yet it maybe the one aspect of all this that is in the general populous more immediate memory.

    Then again if you want to keep something a secret put it out in plain view of everyone. Who in turn will dismiss it as not being possible!

      Thank you kindly. This is one of those which, if only one reader gets something out of it, it will have been worth it. Rennes-le-chateau – that will have to be in the next one.

        Rennes will be interesting, although Lincoln’s telling of the story might not look so robust given what you have presented on the Merovingians.

        The bit I could never get my head around of Lincoln’s book and subsequent hypothesis was the importance of Mary Magdalene. The book spends a lot of time telling a story that reduces the importance of Jesus except for his lineage to King David to a story of a mortal and the suggestion of the marriage to Magdalene. What I could therefore not fathom if that is the theory behind it all – why the veneration of the Magdalene that Lincoln talks so much of following her apparent arrival in the region.

        I suspect something is missing.

    A fascinating read.

    On that final link over at orphans, you might be interested (off at a bit of a tangent)in the story of Kathryn Bolkovac who worked with the UN in Bosnia. and stumbled on collusion in human sex trafficking.

    Her experiences were turned into a film called The Whistleblower – a somewhat dark tale, worth a watch (if you can get over some of the cast).

    Nothing of any consequence is known about Mary Magdalene. As a v distinguished New Testament scholar once said, for all we know she was an eighty-year old woman with a soft spot for unkempt young men.

    “In 1314, on a Friday the 13th, Jacques De Molay was slowly cooked at the stake……”

    It is a common misconception that Jacques de Molay was executed on Friday the 13th. He was not! The Templars were said to have been rounded up on 13th October, 1307, seven years prior.

    JdM was helped off this mortal coil, according to the plaque on the wall at the site of his execution, a small island known as the “Ile des Juifs”, on March 18th, 1314. See link above for photo of said plaque. I have actually stood on the spot and have my own photos of the plaque! The site was chosen so JdM could see Notre Dame as he burnt and yes! it can be seen clearly!

    “March 18, 1314 was the 77th day of the year 1314 in the Gregorian calendar. There were 288 days remaining until the end of the year. The day of the week was Sunday.

    The day of the week for March 18, 1314 under the old Julian calendar was Monday.” Source:

    Definitely not Friday.

    There is some debate as to whether the execution actually took place a week earlier on March 11th, 1314 but the day of the week would still be Sunday or Monday.

    And the Order lives on allegedly
