Enige weken geleden vond ik op de Boekenzolder het boek van Tim Wallace-Murphy over de Vrijmetselaars (Librero 2007). In dit boek wordt opvallend vaak de term ‘Rex Deus’ gebruikt voor de afstammelingen van de Joodse Christenen, waaronder de familie van Jezus. Deze term was nieuw voor mij en ik deed een zoektocht op het internet, waaruit naar voren kwam dat Tim deze term waarschijnlijk zelf bedacht heeft. Ook kwam ik op het internet diverse malen de naam van Prins Bernhard tegen en verzamelde wat er gezegd werd. Na de publicatie van het Trouw-artikel ‘De bronnen van Rob Scholte: Prins Bernhard beweert afstammeling van Huis van David te zijn’ leek het me zinvol deze gegevens te publiceren. Bijgevoegd is een PDF over de ‘Merovingische Dynastie’ van Barbara Aho, waarin Rex Deus uitgebreid aan de orde komt. Overigens wordt Prins Bernhard noch door haar noch door Tim Wallace-Murphy vermeld. Dat ik van de website van Aho een PDF heb gemaakt, wil niet zeggen, dat ik het met haar ideeën eens zou zijn, in tegendeel zelfs. Maar het zou een lang artikel vereisen om alle misvattingen uit de doeken te doen, dus laat ik het aan ieder zelf ter beoordeling. Nog een tweede kleinere PDF met de merkwaardige titel “America, the Beautiful Muru,” heb ik bijgevoegd om de fraaie plaatjes met dezelfde disclaimer. Ook van de webpagina van Princeray ‘Through the Looking Glass’ heb ik een PDF gemaakt. Als laatste, ook vanwege de mooie plaatjes, heb ik een PDF met een overzicht van de website van Genesis6Conspiracy gemaakt, waarop het verhaal zijn allergrootste uitbreiding heeft.
Op het internet wemelt het van de complottheorieën. Hier is wat ik vond over Prins Bernhard, de vader van voormalig koningin Beatrix. John Presco schreef onder het kopje ‘Rex Deus and the House of David’:
There have been many books published suggesting the offspring of Jesus and King David have become powerful and secret rulers some have titled the Rex Deus, and the Black Nobility. Is there any evidence of this? If so, how could their agenda remain a secret? Perhaps it is more visible then these authors, and their readers, would like to admit. What would be their motives for keeping us in the dark?
Prince Bernard of the Netherlands has been identified as a member of the Black Nobility and the Rex Deus. What has he done in the name of his illustrious ancestor, Jesus Christ, that would be seen as a continuing attempt to rule the world?
Prince Bernard, and his wife [Juliana], was a close friend of Denis de Rougemont a co-founder of the European Union and the European Cultural Foundation of which Bernard was President, and most generous contributor. Rougemont may be related to the Habsburgs, another Rex Deus family, and thus Bernard via the Chalon family. Both men were instrumental in the foundation of the Bilderberg meetings, and several other important European institutions that some say are trying to create a One World Global rule. Is this an agenda Jesus and King David would approve of? Evangelic Christians suggest this is the agenda of the Anti-Christ, thus, this agenda is the core focus of world domination, as well as taking control of all western culture, including the Arts.
The Black Nobility belong to the “Committee of 300” that controls the UN. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands has the power to veto the Vatican’s choice of any pope it selects. This may explain the untimely end to Pope John Paul I’s 33-day pontificate. The Prince has veto power because his family, the Habsburgs, are descended directly from the last Roman emperor. (The Habsburg Frederick III was the last emperor to be crowned in Rome; his great-grandson Charles V was the last to be crowned by a pope). This is the civil equivalent of the Pope’s claimed “apostolic succession” from Saint Peter.
Prince Bernhard is leader of the Black Families and he also claims descent from the House of David through the Merovingian dynasty, a claim that was acknowledged to be valid by the Carolingian dynasty that supplanted them, by other monarchs and by the Roman Church of that time. Thus he can truly say that he is “related to Jesus”. Prince Bernhard’s House of Orange had its origins in France. The Habsburgs are related through marriage with the Merovingians, who are said to have descended from the Tribe of Benjamin who went into exile following war with the other eleven Tribes — see Judges chapter 21. Exile took them to Arcadia in the central Peloponnese, Greece. Here they aligned with the Arcadian royal line and towards the advent of the Christian era, migrated up the Danube and Rhine, through marriage engendering the Sicambrian Franks — the immediate forebears of the Merovingians, who were ultimately of Semitic origin, and descendants of King Saul.
There is strong evidence to suggest that this order was the author of Freemasonry, and “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion”, as well as the Rosicrucians. There is abundant evidence to suggest that Nostradamus was one of their secret agents, and there is no question that numerous quatrains which refer to the advent of “le Grand Monarch” indicate that this sovereign will ultimately derive from the Merovingian dynasty. Implying a double hegemony of the Papacy and the Empire, of the Vatican and of the Habsburgs. He frequently referred quite explicitly to the Knights Templars and to the house of Lorraine which is now synonymous with the Habsburgs.
The prince was also instrumental in setting up the annual Bilderberg conference, named after the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland. The conference was designed for high-powered policy makers to have “regular discussions to help create a better understanding of the complex forces affecting western nations”. It is credited with prompting the establishment of the European Community.
Princeray schrijft in zijn artikel ‘Through the looking glass’ (zie PDF):
One of the principal founders of the Bilderberg Group was Dutch Royal Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld. Prince Bernhard wasn’t just an ordinary card carrying National Socialist Workers Party member under Martin Bormann. Prince Bernhard had been Sturmabteilung (SA), a member of the Storm Detachment or Assault Division, or the Brownshirts under Sabschet Ernst Rohm that functioned as the original paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party. Prince Bernhard had also been a blood covenant Schutzstaffel (SS) member, a GENOCIDIST, under Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler since April 22, 1933. He specifically was a member of the SS-Fliegerstürm. SS-Fliegerstürm was a flying unit of the Allgemeine-SS that was formed Nov 1931 in Munich and was absorbed by the Deutscher Luftsport Verband (DLV) Sept. 1933. A special variant of the pilot wings (the SS-SA Fliegerabzeichen, an early SS eagle flanked by the SS and SA logos) was worn by qualified members of this unit.
In addition to his Bilderberg role, Prince Bernhard was head of the Dutch Johannite Orde of Nederland, one of four orders that make up the Chivalric Alliance of Orders of Saint John [John the Baptist] (Alliance de Chevalerie des Hospitaliers de Saint Jean de Jerusalem). The stated purpose of these four, known as “the Alliance” – which is composed of northern European nations Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Great Britain, the latter being an ancient order known as “the Most Venerable Order” – is “to reduce to silence the enemies of Christ”. The headquarters of the Alliance are located in Switzerland.
Over Rex Deus vond ik het volgende ter relativering op GotQuestions.org:
Question: “What is the Desposyni / Rex Deus?”
Answer: Desposyni is a name given to the blood-relatives of Jesus through His mother, Mary. They are believed by some to have had a large part in the leadership of the Church in its formative years up through the 4th century, at which time references to the Desposyni seem to have disappeared. Many attribute this to violent persecution against Jewish Christians, Desposyni in particular. There are some who believe that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and had children with her, whom are also called Desposyni. It is believed that this dynasty exists yet today and has played a large role in world government and religious leadership.
Rex Deus also attributes its lineage to the supposed marriage of Jesus and Mary, but also goes back to King David and, even further, to the High Priest Aaron, Moses’ brother. According to theorists, the Rex Deus have kept their bloodline pure throughout the last few thousand years and are supposedly custodians of the “true” secrets of Judaism and Christianity.
The Desposyni, as being blood-descendants of Mary, Jesus’ mother, are historical fact. They are mentioned in historical records through the fourth century, A.D. However, claims that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had children with her are clearly untrue, and should be immediately discounted. Nowhere in Scripture is it stated that Jesus took a wife, let alone that it was Mary Magdalene. It cannot even be insinuated using biblical text. Every mention of Mary Magdalene in Scripture negates every assumption that there was a sexually intimate relationship between her and Jesus. This twisted view cannot even be supported by non-canonical gospels which reference Mary Magdalene, such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Peter, or even the Gospel of Mary.
The marriage of Jesus to Mary Magdalene is merely a man-made farce, a tool created to further the work of fringe researchers and conspiracy theorists. The ideas behind the Desposyni and Rex Deus arise from mankind’s penchant for solving mystery and for exposing the unknown. Their feeling is there must be an explanation for everything that happens in world history, and what is unknown does not suffice. So, theories are created by twisting historical facts. Farces are introduced as truth, and a few grasp onto this “truth” and take it to the next level in attempts to expose mystery and subterfuge. Secrets contain knowledge, and knowledge power, and will forever ever be an enticement. We who are believers, though, understand that there is only one Truth by which all mysteries are judged—the very Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Op de site ‘Anti-masonry Frequently Asked Questions’ vindt men de volgende vragen beantwoord: Who are the Bilderburgers?
In the main, a creation of Milton William Cooper (1943/05/06 – 2001/11/06) who reprinted the notorious hoax ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ as fact, and wrote stories of an ongoing invasion of aliens from outer space. Three quotes from his book, “The Secret Government” follow:
“Throughout our history, the Aliens have manipulated and controlled the human race through various secret societies, religions, Satanic cults, witchcraft and occult movements.”
“The headquarters of the international conspiracy is in Geneva, Switzerland. The ruling body is made up of representatives of the Governments involved as well as the Executive members of the group known as the ‘Bilderburgers’.”
“The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and their foreign counterparts report to the ‘Bilderburgers’ society.”
Mr. Cooper’s writings are, in the balance, fiction. He was reputed to have renounced his views on an alien invasion but not those regarding Freemasonry.
This fictional creation is not to be confused with the Bilderberg Conference. Started by Prince Bernhard in Oosterbeek, Netherlands in 1954, it is an annual three-day conference attended by a changing delegation of some 100 bankers, economists, politicians and government officers chosen by an international steering committee with offices in the Hague. Its main founder was the Polish political philanthropist Joseph Retiger.
Phyllis Schlafly refers to the Bilderberg conference as “Bilderberger” in her 1964 ‘A Choice Not an Echo’, in which she claims to have discovered a “secret meeting” in 1957. Both John Birch Society member Gary Allen, in ‘None Dare Call it Conspiracy’ and William Bramley, in ‘The Gods of Eden’ refer to the Bilderberg Conference as the Bilderbergers, stating that the conference refers to itself as such. Bramley further suggests a link with the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. No proof or documentation for any of this is supplied.
Ook interessant is vraag 9 op deze site: Isn’t the Priory of Sion a masonic front, conspiring to restore the Merovingian dynasty and responsible for the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’?
No, no, and no.
There is no proof that Pierre Plantard’s Prieure de Sion existed before 1956, although it claims to have originated from an earlier organization, the Ordre du Sion, allegedly founded by Godfroi de Bouillon, Hugh de Payen, and a Calabrian monk named Ursus in 1099.
Allegations of masonic links to the Prieure through the Knights Templar and the Swiss Grand Loge Alpina are unproven. The wishful thinking of some freemasons and the suspicions of anti-masons aside, there is no proven, documented link between the Templars and Freemasonry. There is also no proof of any connection between the Swiss Grand Loge Alpina and Pierre Plantard’s ‘Dossiers Secrets’, deposited in the Paris Bibliotheque Nationale in the mid-1960s. The first of these four documents, ‘Les descendants Merovingiens ou l’enigme du Razes Wisigoth’, dated August, 1965, purports to have been published by the Swiss Grande Loge Alpina. The Swiss Grande Loge Alpina has denied this.
The ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ is a clearly documented fraud, unrelated to Pierre Plantard’s Prieure de Sion.
There are few historical records of the Ordre de Notre Dame de Sion, with which the Prieure de Sion is often confused. After Jerusalem fell to Godfroi de Bouillon in 1099, an abbey devoted to Notre Dame du Mont de Sion was built on the hill of Sion to the south of Jerusalem; it is referred to in later documents and figures in several views of the city. A Father Vincent, writing in 1698, says: “There were in Jerusalem during the Crusades… knights attached to the Abbey of Notre Dame de Sion who took the name of Chevaliers de l’Order de Notre Dame de Sion.”
R. Rohricht, in his ‘Regesta regni Hierosolymitani’ (Roll of the kings of Jerusalem), written in 1893, cites two charters: one of 1116 by Arnaldus, prior of Notre Dame de Sion, and one of 1125, in which Arnaldus’s name appears with that of Hugues Payen, the first Grand Master of the Temple. The existence of the Abbey of Sion, at least until 1281, is attested to by E.-G. Rey in a paper in the 1887 Proceedings of the French National Society of Antiquaries, which lists the abbots who administered the abbey’s property in Palestine.
These documents are the only historical record of the possible existence of a Prieure de Sion before 1956. Everything else that refers to an organization of that name finds its origin in four typewritten, and highly suspect, “publications” deposited in the Bibliotheque Nationale that all seem to lead back to a single source — possibly Pierre Plantard — and revealed by Gerard de Sede.
It was he, along with Plantard, who deposited the ‘Dossiers Secrets’ into the Bibliotheque Nationale, according to library records between 1965 and 1967. Eventually de Sede, Plantard, and the Marquis Phillipe de Cherissy had a falling out.
“After their quarrel Plantard made it known that the parchments in de Sede’s book were fakes. In 1971 I received a letter from Phillipe de Cherissy implying that he was the author of the two parchments published by Gerard de Sede.”
“Plantard trusted me because I was writing a book about him and he gave me the original documents.” (Pierre Jarnac, ‘The Archives of the Treasure of Rennes-le-Château’.) Jarnac produced the documents for a BBC documentary. A note on Parchment 1 in Plantard’s handwriting stated “This is the original document faked by Phillipe de Cherissy which Gerard de Sede reproduced in his book ‘L’Or de Rennes-le-Château’. In a forty-four page unpublished paper called ‘Stone and Paper’ de Cherissy “describes how the documents were fabricated, how the ciphers were set and how they can be decoded.” (Pierre Jarnac, ‘The Archives of the Treasure of Rennes-le-Château’.)
Although the actual existence of any historical Priory of Zion is unproven, authors Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln speculate that such a society existed and hypothesize entanglements with modern crypto-political forces, such as the Knights of Malta, the P2 masonic lodge, the Kreisau Circle, the Swiss Grand Loge Alpina, and various advocates of Pan-European Union: “There was a secret order behind the Knight’s Templar, which created the Templars as its military and administrative arm. This order, which has functioned under a variety of names, is most frequently known as the Prieure de Sion (‘Priory of Zion’).”
Other books—Lincoln’s ‘The Holy Place’ and its sequel ‘Keys to the Sacred Pattern’; David Wood and Ian Campbell’s ‘GenIsis and GeneSet’, which promotes the theory of alien origins for humankind; Picknett and Prince’s ‘Templar Revelation’; Andrews and Schellenberger’s ‘The Tomb of G-d’; Lionel Fanthorpe’s ‘Secrets of Rennes-le-Chateau’; Ean Begg’s ‘The Cult of the Black Virgin’; Elizabeth Van Buren’s ‘Refuge of the Apocalypse’, which promotes the Merovingians-as-extra-terrestrials theory; Alex Christopher’s ‘Pandora’s Box’; Lawrence Gardner’s ‘Bloodline of the Holy Grail’; and Martha Neyman’s ‘The Horse of G-d’ — all accept the existence of the Prieure de Sion. None of them document any proof. Most of the information presented in ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’ had already appeared in other French publications such as Gerard De Sede’s book ‘Le tresor maudit de Rennes’ (The Accursed Treasure of Rennes) in which de Sede claims the Merovingians descended from extra-terrestrials from Sirius.
In ‘Cosmic Trigger III’ Robert Anton Wilson explores the Prieure’s claim to be descended from beings from Sirius and suggests that the whole story is a hoax perpetrated as a work of performance art. Some Christian eschatologists view the Prieure scenario as a fulfillment of prophesies found in the ‘Book of Revelation’ and further proof of an anti-Christian conspiracy. The original material, however, seems to have issued from a single specific source and appears to be a product of Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair’s imagination. Steven Mizrach writes:
Yet this mysterious secret society brought itself to light in 1956 and is listed with the French directory of organizations under the subtitle “Chivalry of Catholic Rules and Institutions of the Independent and Traditionalist Union,” which in French abbreviates to CIRCUIT — the name of the magazine distributed internally among members. Depending on what statutes one considers, Sion either has 9,841 members in nine grades, or 1,093 members in seven, with the supreme member, the “Nautonnier” or Grand Master of the Order being, till 1963, Jean Cocteau (1918-1963) French postmodernist playwright. While it is believed the head has been Pierre Plantard de St.-Clair up until recent times, he claims to have left that post in 1984, so it is not clear who runs the organization at this time.
Despite its registry, however, the organization remains untraceable, its given address and number leading to dead ends.
Most writings about the Prieure touch on the legend of Rennes-le-Chateau and the Merovingians. Current theories also involve the inventor Barnes Wallis; the Cajun people of Louisiana; Johann Salvator, the young Hapsburg prince; lost cities of South America; the so-called “Baconian” theory, which suggests that Sir Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare’s plays; a “doorway unto the invisible” —a gateway to other dimensions; the Illuminati; and self-styled HRH Prince Michael James Alexander Stewart, 7th Count of Albany (Scotland).
The Hieron du Val d’Or, a mystic-cum-political movement at Paray-le-Monial, is also claimed by Jean-Luc Chaumeil, author of ‘Le Triangle d’Or’ [France, Alain Lefeuvre: 1979] to be a part of this story. It too hinges on the discredited ‘Dossiers Secrets’.
Prince Michael dismisses the Plantard claim of a Merovingian bloodline as “wishful thinking” and has stated his belief that the Prieure was only created in 1956. Anglican Bishop Montefiore catalogues what he calls “79 instances … of gross errors, vital omissions, gravely misleading statements or the adoption of way-out hypotheses.”
By the 1990s, even Lincoln had soured on speculating about the Prieure de Sion and Pierre Plantard. “In my old age, I’ve decided to stick to that which can be verified,” Lincoln groused when asked for an update on the secret society.
Ook vraag 11 is van belang: What about the Rex Deus dynasty’s influence on Freemasonry?
The “Rex Deus” group of theories incorporates a belief that Jesus of Nazareth (c. 6 BCE – c. 30 CE) had a wife and several children. The theories promoted by such popular books as ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’ fall into this category. Although there is biblical evidence of Jesus’ siblings, all such theories of a wife and children remain unproven and appear to be based more on assumption and wishful thinking than on any documented proof.
The promoters of these theories, that many of Europe’s ruling families were descended from the Merovingians and Jesus — the union of the holy Davidic and Zadokite bloodlines — often incorporate the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery and often attempt to link the Knights Templar and the Priory of Sion with Freemasonry.
‘Rex Deus’, by Marilyn Hopkins, Graham Simmans and Tim Wallace-Murphy (Element Books), is somewhat unique in discrediting the latter claim while embracing the former. The one key source for ‘Rex Deus’ is an anonymous informant, “Michael”, whose family traditions appear to be based on Barbara Thiering.
‘Rex Deus’ further claims that Robert the Bruce was a Rex Deus family member and had adopted Celtic practices which were aligned with Druidic and Enochian traditions of the Celts. Proof of none of this is forthcoming.
Most promoters of these speculations insist on the veracity of the debunked documents kept at the Bibliotheque Nationale. They will contend that the Counts of Champagne, Lords of Gisors, Lords of Payen, Counts of Fontaine, Counts of Anjou, de Bouillon, St Clairs of Roslin, Brienne, Joinville, Chaumont, St Clair de Gisor, St Clair de Neg and the Hapsburgs also took the name Rex Deus, and that Godfrey de Bouillon was the originator of the group and a direct descendent of Jesus.
This stream of speculation includes the claim that the descendants of this royal and priestly line, now call themselves Rex Deus and that the original Celtic church was founded by the Rex Deus. Other Rex Deus included the Stuarts of Scotland and today’s King Juan Carlos of Spain. One popular promoter of these theories is Israeli conspiracy theorist, Barry Chamish.
No documentation or proof of any of this exists, so the corollary claim that this alleged dynasty has influenced or controlled Freemasonry is also unsubstantiated. Promoters of these speculations continue to insist that the existence of a collection of unrelated historical events and persons somehow is the proof of their theories.
Tot slot vraag 16. What is the Royal Dragon Court?
The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court and Order Ordo Dragonis, Sárkány Rend, 1408 appears to be a late twentieth century revival by Nicholas de Vere, of an unrecognized chivalric order, the Dragon Sovereignty (Ordo Draconis), “reconstituted” in 1408 by King Szigmond von Luxembourg of Hungary (1368-1437), later to be crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 1433.
According to their website, the Hungarian Order of the Dragon is currently registered at the High Court of Budapest. Their website also makes the historically curious claim that Szigmond was crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 1411 by Pope Gregory XII.
Nicholas de Vere, a self-styled occultist and satanist who claims to be a member of the Grail bloodline, seems to have precipitated a schism within the order, leaving Michel Roger Lafosse, controversial claimant to the Stuart throne of Scotland, as an Inner Court Member of a reworked order dedicated to the ancient virtues of chivalry: protection of the earth, upholding of peace, support of the downtrodden, defense of the feminine, and pursuit of knowledge.
Styling himself “HRH Prince Michael of Albany”, Michel Lafosse wrote ‘The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland’ to bolster his claim. Promoted by historical revisionist, and son of Gerald Gardner, Laurence Gardner in such recently published books as ‘Illustrated Bloodline of the Holy Grail’, ‘Bloodline of the Holy Grail’, ‘Realm of the Ring Lords’ and ‘Genesis of the Grail Kings’, the order, and Lafosse’s claims, have generated little interest from mainstream historians.
From claiming Michael Lafosse as the rightful Stuart king of England, Gardner has gone on to argue that Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ is a nonfiction history, and that the holy bloodline comes from Annunaki, from the twelfth planet of our solar system.
Nicholas de Vere continues to promote the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court and Dragon Sovereignty a.k.a. Sarkeny Rend as a separate entity. Although he wrote the introduction to ‘Genesis of the Grail Kings’ he has since had a falling out with Gardner over authorship. His unpublished ‘From Transylvania to Tunbridge Wells’ is alleged to be the source of much of Gardner’s information on the Royal Dragon Court. According to Nicholas de Vere: “‘Mr’ Laurence Gardner, author of ‘Bloodline of the Holy Grail’ and ‘Genesis of the Grail Kings’ resigned from the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court – ‘by mutual agreement’ – following the dismissal of his business partner, Mr. Adrian Wagner, who was asked to leave the Dragon Court before 12th November 1999.”
Composer and producer, and great-great grandson of Richard Wagner, Adrian Wagner (b. 1952) composed, recorded and released companion musical suites to Gardner’s books but is reputed to have also parted company with Gardner.
Although unrelated to Freemasonry — and unsubstantiated — anti-masons and dispensational fundamentalists have used the claims of de Vere, Lafosse and Gardner as further justification of their own claims of conspiracy, satanic rituals in the Vatican and a crypto-masonic new world order.

 Historical revisionism generally takes one of two forms: changes in understanding of past events in the light of new, more accurate research; or changes in interpretation of past events to promote particular political or ideological agendas. The first, sometimes termed historiographical revisionism, is a legitimate pursuit of historians. The second, less a form of revision than of denial, utilizes the omission of contradicting evidence, and occasionally outright fabrications — and has given the popular use of the term revisionism an unsavory connotation.
