The Count de Saint Germain

The Count de Saint Germain

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.

The Immortal One

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.

Richard Chanfray

Back in the 1970’s, a man named Richard Chanfray came out publically to claim that he was the Count de Saint-Germain.

Richard Chanfray

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.

  1. Wow I have always been fascinated with the legend of saint -Germain if it was true it would be wonderful to meet him someday and hear the story of his amazing life.

  2. I’ve read about this fellow before, its a very interesting topic, its one of a few stories about people who have been rumoured to be ‘immortal’ (i.e. Cartaphilus, Nicholas Flamel), it’s an interesting topic to read about, I came across an interesting forum post on another website that says there were rumors he was around a lot earlier even at the time of Jesus Christ, and that he had psychic abilities such as astral projection and foretelling the future. On a lighter note he may have taken a leaf out of Doctor Who’s book and become a time traveler! thanks for another interesting topic, I look forward to the next one.

    1. Hi Angel,

      Interesting fact about the astral projection – I’ll have to look into that a bit further and update the article! 🙂

    2. Hi, you mentioned that you had read another article stating that this man might have been around since the time of Christ. I grew up in a very religious home and would constantly hear new stories out of the Bible and one that always seemed to be left out, forgotten, or ignored was what happened to Christ’s disciples. I’m not sure if the story is true and I’m definitely not shooting down the possibility of it but my father told me a story of one of Christ’s disciples (bare with me it’s been years since I heard the story) but before Christ was crucified he gave each one a gift whether it was knowledge, an actual physical gift such as a feast for their family, and eternal life. Many people assume this was life after death but not for one particular disciple who went unnamed, he(or she) was believed to be very close with Christ and very intrigued by all that Christ could do, it is said this mysterious man to this day walks among the Earth waiting for Christ to return as promised in the Bible. My father could have over exaggerated the story or could be dead on the point, I’m unsure but I always thought that was interesting. Another little point I wanted to mention while on the topic of eternal life, in my church we would see a higher authority in the church who would essentially tell us of our past lives and also of our futures (even in heaven) to inform us of our purpose here on earth and also in God’s eyes in general. I went with my sister as we both were granted permission to go see this guy and we both got 100%different readings, mine stated that I would essentially live in heaven for all eternity whereas my sister’s heaven would be here on earth. This is definitely an odd topic but here goes the conspiracy of this, we (my sister and i)believe that once our lives (all lives we’ve lived) have been completely fulfilled that is when our souls finally get to reach their final destination or a heaven if you will. Why different destinations though? Our theory is that my sister would serve on earth to help lost souls or to help prepare other souls to travel to the heavens we imagine whereas I might reach the heavens to be there to help with whatever heaven may need help with. I wanted to tie this theory in with this count gentleman who lives an eternal life here on earth, maybe this is his heaven or his calling to forever serve the grounds he walks on as Christ blessed him to. Penny for your thoughts?

      1. Wow I didn’t expect this view today – a really great shout Jill! Thanks you so much for sharing this unique angle with us. Hopefully Angel Phoenix will get back to you in the near future! 🙂

  3. The story you are thinking of regarding a disciple who is/was immortal is a little known gospel about a man cursed by jesus on the crucifiction walk for mocking and insulting jesus, cursed to walk the earth until the second coming, I think the gospel was ommited from the bible as it shows a vengeful jesus not an image the church wanted potrayed

  4. I find it strange that this guy doesn’t seem to hide his identity. Through the dark ages he would be lucky not to be burned at the stake and after the little expose in 1983 on TV, his death was probably staged by some Government agency and now he is in a lab being experimented on for the elixir of life. Hence the suicide note and no body. Just a thought.

    1. I like that angle Neville – never really thought about him being taken by a government agency (and that would actually make a great subject/topic for a new article!) 🙂

  5. I believe the count was identified as prince Rakoczi from Transylvania . He used all kind of aliases during his travels, where he visited many european courts, most notably that of Louis XV and Louis XVI. He was very well known for his special abilities and everyone knew him as the mystical st.Germain which actually is an alias, in memoriam of his two lost brothers. At other occasions he was said to have introduced himself as the Marquis de Montferrat. By appearing in the public he drew attention to himself and got famous at such an extent that nobody would even question his identity or heritage. He knew how to play the violin, but he knew how to play his audience even better. He met with royalty and other historical people such as Marie Antoinette, king Louis and met Casanova at one time. He was multi talented in music, arts, alchemy, he spoke 10 languages fluently, he could write the same text using his left ang right hand simultaneously, and he was said to be able to levitate and could transport himself over earth by will alone, as far as Tibet where he acquired knowledge of secret oriental teachings. He was very remarkable in everything he did or say and truly a gifted genius. If the elixir of life made him immortal then this would also mean that he is in fact still alive right now, perhaps patiently waiting for the right moment to make his reappearence to mankind. Who knows?

  6. I am on the way of RICHARD CHANFRAY…found many details ..

    and I still looking for his original SIGNATURE there anyone who can help?

      1. I doubt that. Comte St Germain and Richard Chanfray were both reported to be very smart. You can’t even use the correct form of your or you’re.

      2. Let me tell you why I do not believe you for a second. Because Comte St Germain and Richard Chanfray we’re both supposed to be very knowledgeable men, and you, my friend, cannot even master the difference between your and you’re.

    1. I have gathered many informations about Richard Chanfray through the years. Despite of my scepticism and my doubts, I have a hard time disproving any of his claim. I have a picture of his signature in moderate quality on one of his paintings. Feel free to e-mail me to discuss this.
