The renowned 18th philosopher, Voltaire - himself a respected man of science and reason - said of Saint-Germain that he is "a man who never dies, and
who knows everything."
So who was Count Saint-Germain? Was he a successful alchemist who found the secret of eternal life?
Very few people are aware that the Count of St. Germain became a close acquaintance of the Anson family - the owners of the Shugborough estate where a
famous monument was built believed by some to hold a clue as to where the Holy Grail is buried.
The first time St. Germain had contact with the Anson family was the year 1749, and he may have remained in close contact with them until or shortly
before 1755 when St. Germain went to India.
St. Germain returned to England in 1760 after his brief stay in Paris. Lady Anson wrote a letter to Thomas Anson dated May 2nd 1760 revealing to him
the secret conversation she had with the Count:
"I am whispered, as a secret, that he tells some odd things, & says more: He talks of his own general Benevolence, meaning no harm to any country;
wishing well to France; would have assisted the French King if he would have followed his advice & relieved his subjects from the weight of Taxes;
says he has it in his power to give the King of France more than his Majesty can give him; with other such hints that seem to mean the Great
The Count is claiming to be richer than the King of France? And what was this Great Secret that he was hinting to Lady Anson?
Some occultists including Rudolf Steiner, Max Heindel and (much later) Guy Ballard, have stated that the Count of St Germain was the reincarnation of
Christian Rosenkreutz, the legendary founder of the Order of the Rose Cross, or Rosicrucianism.
A series of paintings titled "The Shepherds of Arcadia" emerged in the early 17th century. The first one was by Guercino in 1618, the second one by
Poussin in 1629, and a third one also by Poussin (his second version) in 1638.
During this same period, a revival of Rosicrucianism (founded in the 1400's) occurred as well. Between 1607 and 1616, two anonymous Rosicrucian
manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe. These were Fama Fraternitatis RC (The Fame of the Brotherhood of RC) and
Confessio Fraternitatis (The Confession of the Brotherhood of RC).
The enigmatic phrase "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" consistently appears in the series of paintings titled "The Shepherds of Arcadia". When translated it
means "I am also in Arcadia" or "I am even in Arcadia". This phrase is found etched in the sarcophagus featured in the paintings.
Note the present tense of the phrase "I am", this is suggesting that the person buried in the sarcophagus is still alive, and living in Arcadia!
This made me conclude that the person buried in the sarcophagus is none other than Christian Rosenkreutz himself, and that the paintings were
commissioned by the Rosicrucians to announce his reincarnation in the person of the Count of St. Germain.
I have made a connection to the Shugborough inscription and the 2 parchments of Berenger Sauniere. Please see my previous post on this topic:
The Shugborough monument shows us 2 sarcophagi, and according to Sauniere's cryptic messages, the person buried in one of the sarcophagi is Dagobert
II (The last of the Merovingian monarchs):
A DAGOBERT II ROI ET A SION EST CE TRESOR ET IL EST LA MORT
"To Dagobert II, King, and to Sion is this treasure and he is there dead."
The 2 sarcophagi is placed one on top of the other, which made me conclude that the Rosicrucians believe Christian Rosenkreutz was actually Dagobert
II in his earlier life.
Many people believe that the Count of St. Germain will return again, I for one believe that when he does, he will be crowned as the Great Monarch
