So, we started with St. Germain supposedly having been born in 1712, though there is indication that Germain could have been in his mid forties at this same time, we will continue by using the date as 1712 as his assumed “birth date”. We have explored documentation, description and known locations of St. Germain up until 1820. Now we will examine documentation that falls after this date.
Between the years of 1880-1900, two references to St. Germain had been documented. The Theosophical Society, founded by and including a famous mystic by the name of Helena Blavatsky in 1882, claimed that St. Germain was alive and well and was working toward the spiritual development of the west. She also claimed that St. Germain belonged to a race of immortals which lived somewhere north of the Himalayas.
The Theosophical Society was originally established in New York in 1875 before Blavatsky would established the international headquarters outside of the suburbs of Madras where is still stands today. In 1886 Blavatsky fell very ill and was near to death, but made an astounding recovery, I surmise that this may be the specific time when Germain was said to have been in the area, there is said to be a genuine photo still in existence of Germain and Blavatsky together. Blavatsky was said to have moved to London immediately after her recovery.
In 1897, a famous french singer by the name of Emma Calve, was said to have had an affair with St. Germain. A autographed self portrait that she had gifted to Germain is also still in existence.
In 1902 a flamboyant man in his mid forties that went by the name of Jacques St. Germain moves into a prestigious building on the corner of Royal and Ursuline. Jacques was said to have migrated from France. His introduction in to New Orleans society was in the form of a large party. Amongst the attendees were dignitaries, politicians and the most elite that New Orleans had to offer. Jacques fed his guest on the finest of china and silverware, though he himself did not eat. This was said to have offended the attendees, though he was in possession of more wealth than most of society, he was not accepted by them. Jacques maintained a low profile, other than his nightly appearances on Bourbon street until one night when he picked up a young woman and brought her home with him. Later that evening the girl was found screaming in the street, both legs broken. She was discovered by the police who took her in to file a report. The girl claimed that while in Germain’s home she had leaned over to look at some items on his mantle, he then came at her with great force and speed and began biting her viciously on the neck. At that moment there came a banging on the door, Germain had been distracted by friends that had come over to invite him out for a night of drinking. The girl, instead of fleeing for the door, chose to jump from the balcony and onto the brick street below, breaking both legs in the fall. When questioned by the police, Germain stated that the girl was drunk and had jumped from the window. The police asked for Germain to come in to the station and make a full statement first thing in the morning. Jacques never showed up the next day, when the police went to pay him a visit, Jacques and most of his belongings were gone. The police report showed that blood stains were found throughout the home. Upon further inspection they discovered there had been no food within the house, only a large collection wine glasses and bottles which appeared to hold red wine. After having sampled the wine, it was determine to have been a mixture of red wine and blood.
In August of 1914, in the early days of WWI, two Bavarian soldiers captured a Jewish-looking French man who they reportedly claimed behaved and dressed in an odd manner. After an all night interrogation the man stubbornly refused to give his name. At sunrise it is reported that the prisoner became highly irritated and began to rant about the futility of war. He was quoted as saying: “Throw down your’ guns!” “The war will end in 1918 with defeat of the German nation and her allies!” One of the soldiers was said to have laughed at his rantings, however the other found his prophesies intriguing and allowed for him to continue. The prisoner was then further quoted having said: “Everyone will be a millionaire after the war!” “There will be so much money that people will throw it from windows and no one will bother to pick it up.” “After the confetti money will come the Anti-Christ.” “A tyrant from the lower classes that will wear an ancient symbol.” “He will lead Germany into another global war in 1939, but will be defeated 6 years later, after doing inhuman, unspeakable things!” It was then reported that the Frenchman began to rant incoherently while crying and singing. At this point the Soldiers determined that the man was insane and released him on his way where he would disappear into obscurity, again.
In 1926, Theosophist, C.W. Leadbeater, then President of the Theosophical Society claimed to have met with Germain in Rome. Leadbeater maintained that Germain had shown him a robe that had been previously owned by a Roman Emperor. When Leadbeater inquired as to where Germain was residing, Germain responded that one of his residences was a castle in Transylvania.
So now we have traveled from 1712(?) to 1926 along the trail of documents throughout history that feature our Jacques de St. Germain. I am looking forward to further researching this vampiric icon into current times!
