The Secrets of Lucifer

Chapter 5: The House of Orange

 

 


The Windsors

 

It is a curious pattern of history that reflects the fact that of the billions of people on this planet, the same people who have been responsible for fomenting the World Wars are all from the same place and the same family. The amount of cooperative effort it takes to perpetrate these Hegelian feuds is best evidenced by the fact that the entire network of nobility in Europe is descended from a man who lived and died less than five centuries ago. Willem I of Orange-Nassau became the common ancestor of all the ruling families by exploiting every opportunity available to conquer the social, political and ecumenical institutions of his day. His descendants carried on his legacy, and regardless of his own personal leanings, many of them became Illuminists through the early influence of James I of England.

The first descendant of Willem I to join the globalization movement was his great-grandson Willem III of Orange (also William III of the United Kingdom). William and his father Willem II were both born after the deaths of their fathers. For William, this meant he was raised by his mother Mary Stewart, daughter of James I’s son Charles I. She died while he was still young, however, and her brother Charles II became his legal guardian.152 William III was thus the grandson of Charles I, the nephew and adopted son of Charles II, as well as Prince of Orange. He married his cousin Mary Stewart, the daughter of James II, and successfully conspired in 1690 to overthrow his father-in-law as King of England.

William III died without an heir, and Friedrich I of Prussia claimed Orange for himself (with eyes obviously on England) as the next cognatic heir.153 After the reign of Queen Anne, the last Stewart monarch, the thrones of Great Britain and Ireland passed to Georg Ludwig, then Elector of Hanover.154 The sovereignty of the House of Hanover represented a major loss of power for the Illuminati before the Order in Bavaria had even been established, and undoubtedly inspired the American Revolutionary War. However, as George I did not even speak fluent English, it was also only a small step for the Illuminati in Germany to steal the British throne, and Hanover itself was annexed to Prussia in 1866.155

William IV of the House of Hanover also died without any heir, providing the Illuminati the opportunity they needed to regain the United Kingdom. The throne passed to the daughter of his deceased younger brother Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent and Strathearn, who held the highest ranks of the various orders within Scottish Freemasonry. Even Edward Augustus was the grandson of Princess Augusta of Sachsen-Gotha. It is fitting, then, that in 1837 the daughter he never knew became Queen of the United Kingdom. She was, after all, raised by her very German-minded mother Princess Viktoria of Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha. Owing to public sentiments (because they were Germans), the family which had enticed its nation into a war with its own homeland changed its name to Windsor in 1917.

The sovereignty of this old Illuminist family is a testament to the monumental stupidity of the masses which it has bent to its will. Considering that the events of the English Civil War deposed James I’s successor and then installed his grandson (proof that people think they need to be ruled by a personality rather than a government), or considering the fact that the 15/16 German Queen Victoria chose her 100% German cousin rather than any Englishman for her husband, it would seem that the people of England would rather have a family of Bavarian Illuminati ruling over them than no monarch at all. The progenitor of the House of Windsor was Ernst Friedrich, Duke of Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfield between 1764 and 1800.156 When Adam Weishaupt found himself being hunted by the elector of Bavaria he appealed to Ernst Friedrich’s relative Ernst Ludwig, or Ernst II of Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg. Ernst greatly admired Weishaupt and decided to not only give him asylum, but a title and pension as well.157

Ernst Ludwig was rewarded for his loyalty to the Order. Within just a few years, the family which became the House of Windsor was established on the thrones of both Belgium and the United Kingdom. Ernst Friedrich’s grandson Ernst acquired Gotha when Ernst Ludwig’s male line went extinct upon the death of his son August. The new duke of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha was the father of Prince Albert who married Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, herself the daughter of Ernst’s sister Marie Luise Viktoria. The children of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert included Edward VII, whose descendants have continuously ruled the United Kingdom, Prince Arthur, who married the granddaughter of Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia and sired the monarchs of Denmark and Sweden, and Princess Victoria, who married Friedrich III of Germany and was the mother of Kaiser Wilhelm.

The House of Windsor went on to merge with the other prominent bloodlines of the whole Illuminist network during the 20th century. Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg. Their son Charles is the heir apparent of the new Mountbatten-Windsor dynasty. He married Diana Spencer, who was chosen because the Spencers have close ties to Illuminism and the English monarchy, and also because she was descended from the Stewarts.158 Charles’ and Diana’s sons Prince William and Prince Harry are therefore the direct descendants and spiritual heirs (through the Illuminati policy of merging the noble bloodlines, for the purpose of centralization of power) of the monarchs of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Hungary, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and (through the House of Wettin) also Bulgaria, Poland and Portugal—not to mention the many colonial territories and defunct titles such as Saxony, Russia, Finland, Italy and Greece—all since these nations were taken over by the Bavarian Illuminati.

The merger of the Mountbatten and Windsor dynasties was obviously intended to enable a single family to preside over the world government, or else to transfer a massive amount of power to some other incarnation of Lucifer, a fact which has now been made plainly evident by the circumstances of the marriage of Prince William to Katherine Middleton, and the subsequent announcement of her pregnancy on 3 Dec 2012 (which the present author boldly predicted, many months in advance, would occur on that date). The royal family in Britain are at the head of several exclusive Masonic orders, some of which date back to the 12th century and possibly earlier. The order which seems to be closest to the original Scottish Rite is the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle. The English equivalent of the Order of the Thistle is the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the vestments of which James I chose for his famous royal portrait toward the end of his life. The Irish equivalent of these is the now-defunct Order of St. Patrick.

In recent times, titles granted by these orders have been passed to the sons of monarchs who have not been the heirs apparent of the various royal families. (For instance, Prince Harry is being groomed to fill the next vacancy for the various Masonic orders, while Prince William is next in line for the throne after his father.) As Duke of Connaught and Strathearn (i.e., Grand Master of both Irish and Scottish Freemasonry), Prince Arthur was also a Knight of the Garter, and of the Thistle, and of St. Patrick. On top of these, he was also a Knight of St. Michael and St. George, the Star of India, the Indian Empire and the British Empire. He was also the head of the Order of the Bath, the United Grand Lodge of England and the Order of St. John.159

Since Prince Arthur’s death and the murder of his grandnephew Prince George (both in 1942), the applicable titles have been passed to George’s son Prince Edward, who also holds several foreign titles and is Grand Principle of Royal Arch Masons.160 Edward was only 7 when he became Duke of Kent, and was groomed for the senior position of the political faction of the New World Order in the same way that Prince Harry has been. He was educated at the Institut le Rosey in Switzerland which, at the time, was the most prestigious boarding school among the world’s elite Illuminists.161 He became Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England and of the Order of St. Michael and St. George in 1967, 25 years after his father’s death interrupted the succession. He seems to prefer the vestments of the latter, either because the British Honours system is regarded higher than Freemasonry by the nobility (which makes sense, considering that anyone 21 or older who simply believes in God can become a Freemason, while the British Honours system is very exclusive), or because it is not as secretive. The title Duke of Strathearn is obviously still the official title for the head of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, as it has remained in the hands of each of its grand masters (including Prince Edward) via the late medieval Sinclairs.

Although the House of Savoy is no longer the ruling house of Italy (as that nation has become a republic), it is also part of the House of Windsor, because Umberto II of Italy married the great-granddaughter of Leopold I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Leopold was also King of the Belgians from 1831 to 1865. The current king is his direct descendant Albert II, who was born the year before Prince Edward, and was also educated at the Institut le Rosey (as was his brother Baudouin, the previous king). Unlike the Windsors, the royal family in Belgium has not formally changed its name to something else, but the members of this family are no longer known as Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, preferring to be called “of Belgium.”

Vittorio Emanuele II was the Illuminist from the House of Savoy who worked with Giuseppe Mazzini during the 19th century to overthrow the Catholic Church. The leader of this faction is designated Prince of Naples, technically a defunct title currently held by Vittorio Emanuele IV. He is perhaps the only person in the world whose jurisdiction in Freemasonry rivals that of Prince Edward. He claims to be the head or high ranking knight of the Orders of the Immaculate Conception, St. Alexander Nevsky, St. Andrew, St. Anne, the Redeemer, and the White Eagle. He is also the head of the Order of Malta and of the Constantinian Order of St. George, as well as being the chief claimant to the throne of Jerusalem (which the Illuminati regard as the only truly significant title for any sovereign, even though it is long defunct, as all authority is ultimately derived from it) and Grand Master of Propaganda Due.162, 163

 

 

The Zollerns

 

In The World At War, we discussed how the Reformation divided the Holy Roman Empire and made it easier for the Illuminists to conquer. Nowhere is this more evident than in the formation of the German state of Prussia and its ruling family of Illuminists. This ruling family which ultimately became responsible for modern Illuminism and usurped the power of all the world’s political and economic institutions is known as Hohenzollern (‘House of Zollern’).

According to tradition, the Zollern family was started when a member of the Colonna family of Rome named Tassilo settled at Zolorin which is near Stuttgart early in the 9th century.164 The family split into its Swabian and Franconian lines in 1227.165 The senior Swabian branch was Catholic, while the junior Franconian branch became Protestant during the Reformation. This is the branch which we will concern ourselves with.

The Illuminist roots of the Franconian Zollerns are evident in the fact that Friedrich (or Frederick) VI von Nürnberg who established the dynasty was succeeded by his son Johann, and that the latter was popularly known as ‘the Alchemist.’ Friedrich became Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, and then Elector of Brandenburg, a predecessor of the Kingdom of Prussia. By 1502 the family was already married into the Bohemian, Hungarian (Hapsburg), Polish and Danish monarchies. Friedrich Wilhelm I married Luise Henriette of the House of Orange in 1646 to begin the slow merger of these two houses.

The lasting power of the House of Zollern was derived primarily from the medieval Teutonic Order which was established in Acre by crusaders from northern Germany after the debacle at Hattin.166 It was simply Germany’s nearly invincible version of the Templars or Hospitallers. The Papacy gave the Teutons orders to take Jerusalem back from the Turks, but instead they directed their crusades against all the non-Catholic lands of Northern Europe in order to establish a monastic rule over the entire Baltic region. An alliance of Poles and Lithuanians eventually resulted in the mandate being taken into (formerly Pagan) Catholic lands, and after two centuries, the expansion of the Teutonic Order finally ceased when they were soundly defeated at the Battle of Grunwald in 1410.

From then on the influence of the Teutonic Order and the quasi-independent Livonian Order steadily declined. Friedrich’s great-grandson Albrecht (Albert) became the last Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, resigning in 1525 and becoming instead the first Duke of Prussia. Albrecht espoused Lutheranism and turned Prussia into the first Protestant state.167 What had once been the Catholic Church’s vehicle of expansion in the North was now the instrument of its political downfall due to Albrecht’s conversion.

Friedrich III was styled Friedrich I as the könig in Preußen (‘king in Prussia’) in 1701, as Prussia had never been part of the Holy Roman Empire but had lands there, and Friedrich II was eventually styled King of Prussia in 1772.168 The Teutonic Order, now known formally as the Kingdom of Prussia, went on to conquer the rest of the German states under the direction of Friedrich I’s son Friedrich Wilhelm I and grandson Friedrich II. Friedrich Wilhelm’s other children included Prince August Wilhelm and Princess Louise Ulrike.

Friedrich II ‘the Great’ was the most brilliant and successful war strategist of the Enlightenment era monarchs or field commanders, and the father of the modern German nation. He is generally regarded as one of the “enlightened despots” because his impact on 18th century European Illuminism was so profound that it is not an exaggeration to accredit it to him.169 His influence was so deep that he was able to bring Illuminism out from the shadows and turn it into the mainstream religion of Europe within the span of a little more than a decade. By the time of his death in 1786, the Order of the Illuminati had wrested control of the American colonies from the House of Hanover and was rapidly encroaching on the Bourbons in France.

August Wilhelm’s daughter Friederike married Willem V of Orange, further solidifying the House of Zollern’s claim over the House of Orange, which it already encompassed. His son Friedrich Wilhelm II succeeded Friedrich II and carried on his uncle’s Illuminist policies with even more fervor. His offspring married into the royal houses of Russia and the United Kingdom and included Wilhelm I, the first kaiser of the German Empire. It was Wilhelm’s son Friedrich III that married Princess Victoria, the daughter of Queen Victoria who gave birth to Emperor Wilhelm II, the supposed enemy of Great Britain during World War One. This was not the only marriage between the two families; Prince Arthur also married Friedrich Wilhelm III’s great-granddaughter. Like so many others we have already covered, August Wilhelm was therefore a common ancestor of all the royal houses in Europe.

Louise Ulrike married Adolf Fredrik of Sweden. Her line was eventually merged with the House of Oldenburg after a few marriages into the titular families of Hessen-Kassel, the major stronghold of Illuminism at that time and home to the Rothschilds.170 This makes Princess Louise another common ancestor of the royal houses. By the time of her death in 1782 Scandinavia had already been Illuminized, but her son Gustav III opposed the Illuminati and had to be assassinated by the Jacobins before the dynastic line actually converted once and for all.

 

 

The Oldenburgs

 

 The Oldenburgs are an old German family which eventually became the dominant house on the European continent. Christian VIII of Oldenburg became King of Denmark in 1448, and within the next decade the family ruled all of Scandinavia.171 This is why the marriage of Louise Ulrike to Adolf Fredrik was so critical to the early spread of Illuminism. During the period which saw the Order of the Illuminati flourish, the Oldenburgs’ foothold in Scandinavia was strengthened by marriages with the landgraves of Hessen-Kassel, without which the Illuminists may have lost Scandinavia to more conservative and patrilineal elements.

When the House of Oldenburg became an overtly Illuminist family, it split into two main factions: the senior Holstein-Gottorp line which ruled over Imperial Russia, and the Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg line which has ruled over Denmark since 1863 and Norway since 1905. Schleswig was merged with Holstein in 1773, and the Holstein-Gottorp line became the grand dukes of Oldenburg.172

The first easily recognizable Illuminist of the Holstein-Gottorp line was Sophie Auguste Friederike, better known as Ekaterina (or Catherine) II ‘the Great’ of Russia. She was another one of the “enlightened despots,” having married the Duke of Prussia who became Tsar Pyotr Fyodorovitch of Russia. Her son (and not Pyotr’s, by most accounts) was Pavel (or Paul) I Petrovitch of Russia. Catherine conspired to murder her husband and ruled over Russia herself from 1762 to 1796.173

The Oldenburgs kept their German Illuminati ancestry pure even in Russia. Paul’s son Nikolai married Friedrich Wilhelm III’s daughter Charlotte. The Russian emperors were therefore both Zollerns and Oldenburgs (but not Russians) beginning in 1801. Nikolai Pavlovich’s grandson married Princess Dagmar, daughter of Princess Louise and Christian IX of Denmark, so even the separate lines of the Oldenburgs were merged in successive generations.

The pseudo-Russian branch was ultimately exterminated by the Bolsheviks. What is left of the House of Oldenburg is comprised of the other descendants of Princess Louise (a descendant of Louise Ulrike), and also Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck who became Christian IX of Denmark.174 Their children simultaneously ruled over Russia, Greece, Denmark and the United Kingdom either as the monarch or consort to the monarch of these nations. Their other offspring also include the current monarchs of Norway, Sweden and Belgium, as well as Queen Sofía of Spain. They were the most recent common ancestors of the entire network of European monarchs.

If not for the Mountbatten-Windsors which they themselves produced through the primary male and secondary female lines, the Oldenburgs would be the most powerful family in the world. Prince Philip was actually the heir to thrones of Greece and Denmark before abdicating to marry Elizabeth, then the heir-presumptive of the United Kingdom. His cousin Marina also married Prince George and became the mother of Prince Edward.175 One of Christian IX’s daughters also married King Edward VII and was the mother of George V.

Due to the fact that the Oldenburgs are descended from Hessians and Prussians, they also have several interesting connections. For example, when Philip married Elizabeth, the British government prevented him from inviting his three surviving sisters because they had all married Nazis.176 In particular, Sophie’s first husband was Prince Christophe of Hesse, the SS officer in charge of the Forschungsamt who was murdered during the war.177 Philip and Sofía (of Spain) both attended a Jewish school run by Philip’s brother-in-law’s father Prince Maximilian of Baden. Maximilian was the crypto-Jewish conspirator selected to negotiate the mock surrender of Germany during WWI, and who announced Wilhelm II’s abdication without his permission, which is arguably one of the greatest crimes ever committed against a sovereign nation.178

Although the Oldenburgs’ connections with the Nazis do not hold any real significance in light of the greater picture of the Third Reich’s origins, they do show the cooperative efforts among the highest class of nobility to destroy the disloyal or decentralized factions of their own families. The internationalist synthesis was made possible by the assistance of the closely related emperors of Russia and Germany who were both direct descendants of all four of the major houses of Europe, as well as the ones which they replaced, all of which came directly out of the nation of Germany and Adam Weishaupt’s Orden der Illuminaten. But ultimately it is not the royal families of Illuminists that rule the world. It is the banking families that do that.

See endnote 157. Wikipedia’s article was created after the text of this book was finished, and has since returned to its skeletal structure of only the bare minimum information. Ernst Friedrich’s relationship to Ernst Ludwig is due to the fact that he was a son of Anna Sophie (a princess of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt), daughter of Anna Sophie, Duchess of Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg. This would make Ernst Ludwig and Ernst Friedrich second cousins, a bond which would have been particularly enhanced by the fact that they were both dukes in Saxony. (The Ernestine duchies were divided amongst Ernst I’s seven sons after 1675, making him the common ancestor of all the Saxon dukes, including these two.) Ernst Ludwig was a key player in the survival and resurgence of the Illuminati. His lands passed to Ernst Friedrich under Weishaupt’s supervision, so it is hard to imagine how Ernst Friedrich might not also have been one of them. Had Ernst Ludwig’s son August produced an heir, they certainly would have been the ones to succeed to the throne of the United Kingdom. The opportunity was provided when Prince Edward Augustus became heir to the throne. As he was actually of the Sachsen-Gotha line, he would have married into Ernst Ludwig’s family rather than Ernst Friedrich’s, which was also actually the senior line of the Ernestine duchies, if that had been possible. The fact that Prince Edward was Duke of Kent and Strathearn should not be overlooked as evidence that the Illuminaten survived and thrived outside of Germany after 1786, at least, in the Grand Lodges of England and Scotland, as well as the Order of the Bath and the Order of the Garter, and the other orders under his authority. However, this argument is no longer relevant as of 2012, as the facts concerning the activities of the Illuminati after 1786 is no longer treated with hostile rejection. One might say that since the birth of the Internet, a new generation has grown up without an incentive to ignore the most significant of the underlying truths of modern history. This was simply not the case when I originally wrote this in 2006.

157 Terry Melanson, “Illuminati Conspiracy Part One,” Illuminati Conspiracy Archive, http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/Illuminati.htm.

“Weishaupt had already left his post at the University two weeks earlier, obviously knowing about the approaching storm. ‘He fled across the border to Regensburg, and finally settled at Gotha’ under the protection of Illuminati member Duke of Saxe-Gotha. [Vernon L. Stauffer] Thirteen years later [Augustin] Barruel writes, ‘[Weishaupt] now banished from his country as a traitor to his Prince and to the whole Universe, peacefully at the court of Ernest Lewis [Ernst Ludwig], Duke of Saxe Gotha, enjoys an asylum, receives a pension from the public treasury, and is dignified with the title of Honorary Councellor to that Prince.’” This last line was written in 1798. Virtually all of the information I was able to find regarding Ernst Ludwig is that he was born in 1745 and died in 1804. As I wrote in 2006, “He is simply missing from the public record, for the moment, although I have admittedly not spent much time checking the German records which are apparently far more extant.” Since that time, Wikipedia has not only added an article for him, but also suggested expanding on it from the German-language article. The English article confirms that Ernst Ludwig gave Zwack and Weishaupt asylum, and that he was himself a member of the Illuminati. See endnote 156 for another update.

158 The Spencer family is an old one. The name suggests a title (dispenser, ‘keeper’), but records show that the first Spencers were hereditary knights. Given the time period, this means that the first Spencer was a Templar, or at least a member of William the Conqueror’s court. Thurston, the second to be called ‘le Despencer’ was born about 1122, which means his father probably would have been one of the first initiates after the Templars returned to France, if not one of the original crusaders. However, this is speculation. Henry Spencer was created 1st Earl of Sunderland around 1620 by James I, and this is where the family history becomes important to English history. The most important member of the family to Illuminism was George Spencer, 4th Duke of Marlborough, who was elected to the Royal Society when the Illuminati had control of it in 1786. Marlborough was also a Knight of the Garter. His immediate descendants held many titles, and he was the ancestor of Lord Randolph Churchill of the Spencer-Churchill line, the stepfather of Sir Winston Churchill who was the bastard son of King Edward VII and the American Jew Jennie Jerome. This secret has been kept from the public since the deed was done, but Jerome was already two months pregnant with Winston when Lord Churchill was sent to the British Embassy in Paris to meet and marry her, so my disclosure is not as big a deal as it could have been, had the most pertinent facts not already been public. Randolph Churchill was chosen because he was a close and trusted friend of the king, as evidenced by the fact that George Frederick (later George V of the United Kingdom) had been born at the Marlborough House (their group’s secretive meeting place) nine years earlier, and because the marriage to Jerome was a great honor. (She was considered a very desirable woman.) The marriage was little more than a joke to cover up a royal scandal, and Jerome continued her sexual escapades for many years, as did Edward VII, and everyone including Edward’s queen knew all about the adulterous affairs. It is strange that the public does not, considering the reverence it holds for Edward’s evil bastard. Other descendants of Henry Spencer who have been prominent Illuminists include the British royal house (before Diana, that is), George Washington and the Roosevelt, Bush and Darwin families. (George W. Bush’s wife Laura is a Sinclair and a Bruce. Her maternal grandfather was Halsey Sinclair Hawkins, and she is the only child of Harold Bruce Welch.) At least one chairman of the Bilderbergs and most of the prime ministers of England have been Spencers by birth as well. So we see that the New World Order’s bastards and non-heirs run the world under the pretense of democratically elected government while the firstborns live the hedonistic lifestyle of Luciferianism, even though they are all cognizant members of the same larger family. The Old French (i.e. Platagenet legal) term for this is apanage, defined as “French usage of giving lands to non-Heirs Royal of the Crown of France. These lands could not be sold, mortgaged, or used as a dowry, and passed back to the King in the extinction of the line;” http://members.tripod.com/whitebard/med-law-.htm. Apanage does still happen in today’s feudal system.

161 The Institut le Rosey educates much of the European nobility. Other Illuminists who have attended this school are members of the Rothschild, Schiff and Rockefeller families. The Institut le Rosey’s alumni list is a ‘who’s-who’ of Illuminism. I mentioned in 2006 that I was “still searching for more information, but the school keeps a tight lid.” I have since gotten to what I presently think is the bottom of this rabbit hole, and will be revealing the conclusion of this research and the data which have led me to it sometime in the future. Suffice it to say that the roles which the elite boarding schools play in the globalization agenda is far greater than I have hinted at here, and the significance of the associations which will be made between their founders or administrators and certain key historical personages will constitute the final nail in the coffin of the argument which all my other books have only been building up to.

169 Whether Friedrich II commissioned the Bavarian Illuminati or simply joined their ranks early on is difficult to discern. The fact that his immediate family members were also Illuminists by this time strongly (with near certainty) suggests the former. Certainly there were Illuminists in the family at least as early as the Council of Constance (1414-1418). Friedrich II would have had access to the same kinds of materials as those which Adam Weishaupt read growing up at Ingolstadt, but was primarily influenced by his mentor and lover Voltaire. At the very least, he was directly responsible for the work of Moses Mendelssohn, whose legacy was carried on by Albert Pike, and a strong connection between Friedrich’s court and the Jewish Enlightenment which catalyzed Weishaupt’s revisions has been established in the final chapter of this book. I believe Friedrich was born into Illuminism, but that the family did not take the idea of secret societies very seriously for several centuries before him. In other words, the idea of conquering the world and establishing a Luciferian state was rekindled by his father after having lied dormant since the fall of the Teutonic Order. Friedrich, being the true genius that he was, would have developed the idea in new (or perhaps forgotten) ways, resulting in the fusion of the temporal power of the monarch and the secret societies such as Freemasonry and the Order of the Golden Fleece, etc. As Friedrich well knew, “it is easier to destroy your enemy with propaganda than with artillery.” Thus the Hegelian dialectic and the Order of the Illuminati were reborn, regardless of whether that was what Friedrich intended. Either way, the connection between the Prussian Hussars and the Skull and Bones society is self-apparent.

170 The House of Zollern had very close ties with the nobles of Hessen-Kassel. Although Hessen-Kassel was influential in its own right, this seems to be because of the early influence of the Illuminists living there. The fact that the Oldenburgs and Zollerns continued to marry nobles from Hessen-Kassel for several generations despite their international influence is evidence that they were keeping the secrets of the Illuminati to themselves. The prominent Jewish banking families all lived in Hessen-Kassel, and the baron Adolf von Knigge was the single most important individual within the Order of the Illuminati. The Illuminati were considered to be a Bavarian sect, but this is due to the fact that Weishaupt lived in Bavaria at the time. The order was actually commissioned at Frankfurt-am-Main, and its members were mostly recruited by von Knigge. In other words, only Weishaupt’s inner circle at Ingolstadt could even be reasonably thought of as a Bavarian order, and they were actually the minority of residents of Bavaria among what should be thought of as a pan-Germanic or a Prussian-Hessen sect.

177 This conclusion that Prince Cristophe’s death was an Illuminati-orchestrated homicide is based on conjecture, but not without ample evidence. I first found his name while browsing a list of famous people who died in aviation accidents; http://planecrashinfo.com/famous1940s.htm. After browsing the list, I determined that the probability of some of these “accidents” being accidental was minute at best. For example, if Mohammed bin Laden’s plane hadn’t crashed on 29 May 1968 and his son Salem’s helicopter hadn’t hit some power lines on 29 May 1988 (exactly 20 years apart, to the day), then Osama bin Laden would not have inherited the fortune he supposedly used to create the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda. Even more revealing is the fact that both of these “accidents” happened in the same place (San Antonio), under the direct supervision of the incumbent presidential candidate (at the time of the second crash) and former CIA director George H. W. Bush. Also pertinent to this survey is the mysterious aviation death of Prince George which caused Prince Edward to become Duke of Kent and Strathearn; http://planecrashinfo.com/1942/1942-17.htm. Compare this to the fact that Bush flew 58 combat missions during the war (in the Pacific arena, away from his Nazi kinsmen) and emerged unscathed. Crown Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden was also killed during a takeoff in 1947. Even though aircraft fatalities represent an almost insignificant statistical cause of death among the general population, it is the leading cause of death among US legislators, particularly those who are not liked by or have fallen out of favor with the New World Order (e.g., US Senator Paul Wellstone), particularly Bush’s Skull and Bones society (e.g., US Senator John Heinz, who was about to blow the lid on the neocons’ involvement in the Iran-Contra Affair). The aviation deaths of the Kennedy family in America are so well-known that they don’t merit any attention here. If not for this statistical anomaly, the assassinations of Prince George and Prince Christophe (as well as Joseph Kennedy) during World War Two would still be a mystery explicable by random, though still improbable, chance.
