Have immortals always walked the Earth without us really noticing? Is it possible for a person to live forever?
Many ‘believers’ point to the fact that a historical figure known as Count de Saint-Germain is indeed one of these immortal human beings.
His birth is thought to have taken place sometime in the 1600’s but researchers claim that certain evidence points to the fact that he first appeared around the time of Christ.
He seems to have popped up numerous times throughout history and he always appears to be around the age of 45. The last sighting was reported back in the early 1970’s.
Many famous figures throughout history have claimed to have met this strange yet fascinating man – Casanova, Madame de Pampadour and George Washington, to name but a few.
An author named Annie Besant went as far as compiling a genealogy on the man, which seems to indicate he could have been the son of Francis Racoczi II, Prince of Transylvania in 1690…
The Immortal One
The Count de Saint-Germain frequently boasted that he had discovered the secret to eternal life – that he was indeed immortal.
Between the periods of 1740 to 1780, the then celebrity (of sorts) traveled the length and breadth of Europe and never aged a day.
He seemed to be an absolute genius in every subject he took on. He was an extraordinary painter, he spoke over ten different languages and he was a talented violinist (virtuoso level).
He also had a few strange ‘peculiarities’ that witnesses picked up on…
Within days of arriving at a capital city, he would set up a state-of-the-art laboratory, presumably for his alchemy work.
He did not own any bank accounts but at the same time – he was extremely wealthy.
He had a lot of friends wherever he went, and he dined with them frequently, but he would never eat any food in public.
He was also linked to numerous elite societies (the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Society of Asiatic Brothers, the Knights of Light, the Illuminati and Order of the Templars).
Life After Death
Official records point to the fact that Count de Saint-Germain actually died in 1784…but the sightings did not stop there.
In 1785, many witnesses reported seeing him with the pioneer hypnotist Anton Mesmer, in Germany. This led to the rumor that the count had actually taught Mesmer a few dark arts which he applied to his extremely successful hypnotic antics.
On top of this, official records of Freemasonry seem to point to the fact that Saint-Germain was selected as a representative for the movement at a function in 1785.
The Comtesse d’Adhémar claims to have had a long and enlightening discussion with Saint-Germain after the taking of the Bastille in 1789.
During this conversation the count was able to predict France’s future with eerie precision. Comtesse d’Adhémar went on to admit she had several more meetings with Saint-Germain leading up to 1820.
From the meeting in 1789 to the final meeting in 1820…he hadn’t aged a day.
Back in the 1970’s, a man named Richard Chanfray came out publically to claim that he was the Count de Saint-Germain.
Chanfray actually appeared on a handful of television programs where he appeared to turn lead into gold.
In 1983 news surfaced that Richard Chanfray had taken his own life in Saint Tropez. No body was ever found…just a suicide note.
