In this article we will be looking at the rather long lifeline of the Count de Saint Germain – a figure that has continually popped up throughout history since he first appeared around the time of Christ.
Do immortals walk among us, hidden in plain sight?
Let’s take a closer look…
Numerous researchers believe that this ‘count’ was born sometime in the 1600’s…but there is a certain amount of evidence that he first appeared around the time of Christ.
He seems to continually appear throughout history, and is always aged around the 45 mark. The last apparent sighting of this man was in the early 70’s.
The Count has rubbed shoulders with many of the ‘high and mighty’ during his time on Earth – Casanova, Madame de Pampadour and George Washington all claim to have met him and spent numerous hours in his company.
Annie Besant, an author who developed a deep fascination with this character, went as far as creating a genealogy on him…which resulted in her firmly believing that the Count was the son of Francis Racoczi II, Prince of Transylvania in 1690.
The Count never attempted to hide the fact that he was immortal, and frequently boasted that he had discovered the secret to eternal life.
He found worldwide celebrity status in the years between 1740 to 1780. During this time he traveled to every corner of Europe…and never seemed to age a day!
He was also known to be and extremely talented man…at just about everything he turned his hand to. There are reports of him excelling at various forms of art and he spoke over ten different languages.
Whenever he arrived at a city for the first time, he would immediately purchase a building and set up an alchemy laboratory. He didn’t have any bank accounts…but he always had money to burn.
He made friends with ease – wherever he ended up.
He would frequently be spotted out with large groups of socialites, but he never ate a bite of food in public.
History also points to the fact that he had strong connections in the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Society of Asiatic Brothers, the Knights of Light, the Illuminati and Order of the Templars.
Apparently, this popular Count eventually died in 1784…but less than a year later he was spotted in Germany with the pioneer hypnotist Anton Mesmer. Many friends of Mesmer later claimed that the Count had turned up to teach the hypnotist elements of the dark arts, to aid his work.
In 1789, the Comtesse d’Adhémar reported having a meeting with the Count after the taking of the Bastille. In this conversation, the Count was able to predict France’s future with eerie precision.
Comtesse d’Adhémar also admitted that many more meetings were set up with this strange character, from 1789 until 1820. In all this time – he never aged a day.
Who Was Richard Chanfray?
In the 1970’s, a man named Richard Chanfray came forward to claim that he was the mysterious Count de Saint Germain. When the press picked up on his story he was invited onto numerous television shows (on one of these shows he appeared to turn a chunk of lead into gold).
For some reason Richard Chanfray committed suicide in Saint Tropez in 1983…but his body was never found…just a suicide note from the man himself.
