The Immortal Count de Saint Germain

The Immortal Count de Saint Germain

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…


Live Forever

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.

Live Forever

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.


Eternal Life

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.

Eternal Life

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).

Who Was Richard Chanfray?

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.

  1. Brilliant story! Really enjoyed reading this. 

    I do believe there are some immortal souls that don’t leave this realm. 

    Maybe that means there could be immortal people around us it just we don’t stay on this planet for long enough to notice them.  

    Now that we live in the age of internet and everything is documented in a visual way, the future generations will be able to make comparisons and possibly find people who live forever.

  2. This is interesting and spooky all at once and sends shivers down my spine. It would be a perfect story for a Hollywood movie. I was just wondering, where you researched the references? Rationally, the Count is all made up, but who really knows. It would be ignorant and arrogant to say it’s true or false. What’s your personal view on this?

    1. You think this is spooky Felix???

      It’s a good job you didn’t read anything from our occult section then mate! 🙂

      The Count certainly isn’t all made up, and records show this. Try a little Google search – you’ll be surprised with what you find!!!!

  3. Hey there,

    What a great informative article on Saint Germain.  As a Reiki healer, I came across Saint Germain, as a  High Priest of the Violet Flame temple.

    You asked about immortality, so yes I am from India, and there are thousands of stories of the immortal people, who are living for last thousand of years.


  4. Good afternoon Chris,

    An absolutely fascinating figure this Count de Saint Germain. He spoke many languages and that made it easy to mingle with the famous and wealthy in many countries. He seems to have been a brilliant alchemist and that makes him even more intriguing. It seems he was sometimes confounded with Claude-Louis, Comte de Saint-Germain, who was a French general or, more intrestingly, with Robert-Francois Quesnay de Saint Germain, who was an occultist. I wonder perhaps they were the same person?

    When he died in Germany the few things he left behind were not really of interest, not secret formulas, gold or precious stones, nothing to get excited about. Perhaps he had it hidden somewhere, who knows?

    To the question if it is possible to live many centuries, coming and going in history so to speak, I would say yes. I am convinced there are so many misteries in this world we do not know about or are being hidden from us on purpose.

    Regards, Taetske

    1. Completely agree with you there Taetske. I also believe that the Count was/is not the only person to have been gifted with the ability to live for so long…but that’s another story…
