THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE:
WHITE DRAGON SOCIETY GIVES A DEADLINE
It is exciting to hear about the economic freedom that is soon to manifest for the world, in spite of the many challenges yet ahead. As we have stated before, we are headed for a time great light and darkness. We get to choose which will be our experience. However, I want to share some thoughts on the esoteric side of this article, which further confirms our (6) Dragon series of Daily Blogs from January 2012. (If you haven’t read them, this writing might not make lots of sense to you).
When reading the article above about the “White Dragon Society,” to most people that might just seem like a “cool scary Asian name,” or something from a martial arts movie. In many films about martial arts, we have heard mention of ancient Dragon Secret Societies, some have even accurately depicted them as being part human and part dragon/reptile hybrids.
The fact is, originally these secret societies and specific “family names” were so named, because of their “ancient non human bloodline.” That is the main reasons for “secrecy.” During our Dragon Series we shared this. We also shared how in these secret societies that descended from a literal Dragon/Reptilian Race, probably from the constellation of Draco; there are what we would call good and evil Draconians. Thankfully, those that are working with the Light are in the process of overthrowing the darkness. This is what the Global Resignations of the evil Khazarian Bank CEO’s and Politicians is all about.
Keep in mind that all the rulers or Emperors of Asia were and are til this day of a Dragon bloodline; sometimes the true rulers may be ruling from behind the scenes. Should we be surprised? Most of those that have ruled Europe, other western nations (America) and parts of Africa are of a Dragon/Reptilian bloodline also. This is why genealogical records proves most of them are related. The Dragon rulers have been divided between the East and West for thousands of years with sub-factions/families of half-bloods, 1/3 bloods, lesser and willing servants.
CURRENT DRAGON SOCIETIES EXISTING TODAY
Why do we have the White Dragon Society, Red Dragon Society, Green Dragon Society, Black Dragon Society, and Dragon Families? Each of these groups are considered to be “illumined ones” Illuminati. Could it be that when the Draconians first descended on this planet, they decided who would rule certain regions? Could it be that there has been a Cosmic Sibling Rivalry being played out on the planet through the human hosts for thousands of years? Have the humans been used in proxy economic and violent warfare (nation against nation, religion against religion, race against race) at the expense of satisfying the huge ego of negative Draconians/Reptilians? Is there any end in sight for the human pin pong game? Yes! There is and there has always been a plan in place to cast down the evil Draconians that have ruled the world (gods of this world) in unrighteousness.
Some of you are probably thinking, Ok, this is sounding weird. This is sounding beyond science fiction. Is there a Scripture in the Bible about this? YES! Also think on the encounter in the Garden of Eden between the serpent/Dragon and Eve.
Do you want to see the Scripture where it accurately described the evil Dragon Society of today? This Dragon Society is a leading one, connected with other Dragon families. Here’s the clue. What color Dragon do you see flying across your screen?
“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous Red Dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great red dragon was hurled down -that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” Revelation 12:1-9
The above passage of Revelation 12 is very relevant for 2012. We can not get into the many hidden messages in this writing. Prophecy is written and given to be interpreted multi-dimensionally. In the passage there is clearly the astrological reference, historic, and many other symbols. What many don’t realize is that there is a literal futuristic event to be played on in the skies.
So now we have a Biblical prophetic reference of a specific Dragon clan that will be and is being dealt with. The RED DRAGON SOCIETY, the Western version of the Illuminati. Who are they?
RED DRAGON MYTHOLOGY
Dragon mythology is found all over the world. Usually, the Dragons are depicted as guardian and protectors; as is seen in religious art around the throne of God. The Dragons, also called Seraphim are the closest to the Throne of God. In Asia, the Dragons are also looked upon as protectors and a blessing to humanity most of the time.
In European Dragon mythology, we have the fire-breathing Red Dragons that often attack humans and started wars. Other Dragons were sometime summoned to protect the people from the Red Dragon or a Dragon Slayer arose.
Are there any countries that use the emblem of a Red Dragon today that might help us identify them? Yes!
“In England, to this day, a rampant red dragon (clutching a mace) is the heraldic symbol of the County of Somerset. The county once formed part of the early-medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex in western England, which too bore a dragon or wyvern (a two-legged as opposed to a four-legged dragon) as a symbol. The Wessex beast is usually colored gold in illustrations.
Though Somerset has traditionally had a red dragon as an emblem, the red dragon is more commonly associated with Wales, as its national flag features a red dragon (Y Ddraig Goch). This may originate in Arthurian Legend where Myrddin, employed by Gwrtheyrn, had a vision of the red dragon (representing the Britons)…” Wikipedia
CASTING DOWN OF THE ANGLO-SAXON NATIONS
The 2000 year old prophecy of Apostle John on the isle of Patmos writing the book of Revelation specifically describes what we are seeing taking place today. The Debt-Driven Capitalistic economy controlled by the Anglo-Saxon nations are shaking. Those that have enslaved the world through deception, debt and disastrous warfare are being brought down. The Political structure of this Khazarian Babylonian system must be cast down. Apostle John accurately sees and describes the energy of this secret society as a Great Red Dragon.
You must understand we are speaking on multiple levels when we mention the casting down of the Anglo-Saxon nations. We are not addressing “race,” we are speaking of a flawed deceptive Satanic system that happened to have been channeled through and capitalize on by certain people groups. We are speaking about the end of control, manipulation, greed and deception on the level that many have become comfortable with. The 7-headed red Dragon of Revelation has affected the whole world (7 continents) with its unjust politics, economic greed and false religions. Another way of saying this is, this is a prophecy about the fall of the (Western) Babylonian system. This is manifesting as Economic Collapse and Political Collapse; it will also result in the Military Collapse of USA, NATO, British & Israeli Forces.
This is the symbol you are greeted with when entering the city of London. What does it say? Dragon of London has “Domine dirige nos” (O Lord guide us) written underneath. Making the Dragon as a God to guide them, with specific term Lord associated with the image of a Dragon.
Are there any other nations that use the Red Dragon as their emblem today? No! The only country on earth that has a Red Dragon as its official symbol is Wales. Queen Elizabeth II made it official in 1952. Where did this come from? Rome used the Red Dragon emblem (and sometimes the White Dragon). It was adopted by Britain, however, the pagans worshiped the Dragon. Dewi was the great Red Dragon from the sea worshiped in ancient Britain.
This human size image below was used in the Queen’s Coronation in 1953. It stands beside her throne. The Dragons are always guardians of the throne and symbolize power. It is called the Queens’ Beast.
The Red Dragon Society is a revived name or cover name for the Nazis (Saxons) that yet exist and have never left power. These are those that long for warfare, violence, death and blood; the color of the Red Dragon. Look around the world today (South America, India, Pakistan, Asia, Middle East, and Africa) and it will be easy to identify the root of every major conflict. The Red Dragon is yet breathing fire of destruction and creating weapons of mass destruction.
SUSPENSE & SIGNS OF THE ANTI-CHRIST?
First of all, we are aware of “many anti-Christ” as the scripture states it. We are also aware of the carnal nature or ego representing the anti-Christ. As great as all this sounds; Prosperity, Peace, Global Settlements, and the greedy blood thirsty Khazarians being kicked out of power…umm, something aint quite kosher yet. We agree that many of these things are confirming what the Spirit has been saying…but here’s a thought.
Ok, Red Dragon-lady Queen Elizabeth will give up power to Prince Harry? (This may not be announced on CNN or FOX). If this happens, I have some serious problems with it. I have just identified the Great Red Dragon as Britain and secret societies of Anglo-Saxon nations that has caused all the major conflicts in the world. Wikipedia also identifies them.
When the Red Dragon of Revelation 12 (Anglo-Saxon evil Illuminati, Masons, Satanist, etc) saw that they were defeated and could no longer Deceive and control the world as before through DEBT, Warfare, GMO, man-made disasters, religious and racial division, he gave up his power to the Beast. “And I saw a beast…and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne and great authority.” Revelation 13:2 Are we getting a picture of this world ruler the Bible speaks of? Could this be Prince Harry of Red Dragon bloodline? What happened to Prince William, he is 2nd in line after his father Prince Charles? Watch and Pray, Be not Deceived. (More about this Chimera Beast in future Daily Blogs)
WHITE DRAGON MYTHOLOGY
We are speaking on several levels to relay this message in a way that is easy to understand. First of all, there were and are literal Dragons on the planet. They are from a Dragon/Reptilian Race probably from the constellation of Draco in the Zodiac of Sagittarius. This huge constellation is at the right hand of Cepheus, the coming Ruler-a constellation of stars in the center of the heavens depicting One sitting on a throne.
Secondly, the Draconians did interact sexually with human women and produced Dragon Seeds on the planet. The first of many Biblical reference is Genesis 3, Eve and the Serpent/Dragon produced Cain. Thirdly, the seed is yet on the planet and most royals trace their bloodline to it. Fourthly, most of the truth has been hidden and covered up in so called, myths and legends. Fifthly, they understand the power in symbols. This is why Dragon and reptiles are in every culture telling and re-telling the history and prophesying what is to come. Keep in mind, myths and legends are mostly forgotten or unbelievable history. There are those that would not like for us to know the truth about history.
In the ancient history/mythology of India will we find the roots of the Black Dragon Society. It was recently renamed, the White Dragon Society based on an ancient inscription outside a cave in Japan.
“BENZAITEN is a river Goddess in Indian mythology. Her Sanskrit name “Sarasvat;” means “flowing water” and thus she represents everything that flows (e.g., music, words, speech, eloquence). Benzaiten the Indian Goddess appears in some artwork together with a sea dragon. In other depictions, Benzaiten is occasionally surrounded by white serpents, or crowned with a white serpent. She is sometimes depicted as mounted on a Dragon or serpent. Later she was adopted into the Buddhist and then Shinto pantheons of Japan as Benten. One of Japan’s Seven Lucky Gods.”
The Japanese version says that the Goddess Benten descended because a Dragon was misbehaving and had started to eat children. This was totally out of character for the Asian Dragons that protected the people. Benten married the Dragon and there was peace again. Legend says that when Benten married the Dragon, the island Enoshima was immediately formed. Here stands a stature of the White Dragon outside the cave protecting the island til this day.
It is from the Dragon seed, blood-line that Emperors of Asia descended. According to history, Mituru Toyama created the Black Dragon Secret Society (Genyosha), he fought against injustice and the Westernization of Japan in the 1800’s. Of course, today he would be called a terrorist. The Black Dragon Society (from which we also got many forms of Kung-fu, martial arts) is now called the White Dragon Society.
The White Dragon Society sees themselves as the Guardians and Protectors of the planet and all human life, as the dragons in the ancient times. The White Dragon society is mentioned in the news article above. This ancient society today is lead by a group of Elders living in the “forbidden zone” of China. They are thought to be immortals by some because of their extremely long life span.
If you read the Blogs from a few days ago, you will be able to connect the dots. Catch this! Lord Blackheath of the Upper House of Lords of England stated that about $15 trillion dollars of $36 trillion had been stolen from a descendent of an Indo-Chinese royal family of Asian Emperors. His name was given as Mr. Riyadi. We see the legend of the Black/White Dragon starts in Indian and is in Japan. In China, the Goddess Bixia Yuanjin is equivalent to Benten of Japan and Benzaiten of India. How does one accumulate $36 trillion dollars in what we know of as one life time? Is this starting to make sense?
According to Ben Fulford, the Green Dragon Society has its roots in Persia (Iran) and Central Asia. I kinda believe they would be absorbed into the White Dragon Society. Who is one of Iran’s main allies? China.
Dating as far back as 3000 BC, many looked to Chinese Dragons to keep evil spirits at bay. It is also believed that an evil President or Ruler will not be elected during the Year of the Dragon. We hope that to be true.
The following is additional historical info about the Green Dragons from:http://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/behold-the-green-dragon-the-myth-reality-of-an-asian-secret-society
Behold the Green Dragon: The Myth & Reality of an Asian Secret Society by Richard spence
History certainly has no shortage of enigmatic or controversial brotherhoods, orders, lodges and societies. The Knights Templar, for instance, are a perennial object of fascination and speculation. Whether the Templars were the inspiration for the no less controversial Freemasons, a band of depraved heretics or the innocent victims of a conspiracy born of greed and envy remains a topic of lively debate.
What no one can contest, however, is that the Knights existed. The beginning and formal end of the Order can be dated with precision, and the names of its leaders are a matter of historical record. Even a dubious organisation like the Priory of Sion can be shown to have had a genuine, if recent, existence, though its claims to centuries of tradition and hidden influence remain unsubstantiated. But there are other groups which seem to exist only in that gray zone between reality and imagination, ones whose origins, number, scope and purpose remain maddeningly vague.
One such entity is the quasi-mythical Green Dragon Society (GDS), also known as the Order of the Green Dragon or simply the Green Dragon. It most often is mentioned as a Japanese secret society, but that is not necessarily the whole story. Other evidence, or at least allegation, argues that its true origins lay in China or Tibet and that its influence extended to the power centres of Tsarist Russia and Nazi Germany. Historical figures from the Emperor Hirohito, to Adolf Hitler to Rasputin have been tied to the Green Dragon, legitimately or not. The waters have been further muddied by role-playing games which have combined the Society with H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and other fictional elements. Determining what is “real” and what is the playful figment of someone’s imagination can be tricky.
What follows will not solve the mystery of the Green Dragon, but it will try to separate fact from fiction and explain where claims and information came from. In doing so, it will offer a tantalising glimpse into a mysterious organisation that may have played a significant role in shaping modern history.
Enter the Black Dragon
The simplest explanation for the Green Dragon Society is that it is a muddled reference to the better known, and definitely real, Black Dragon Society (BDS) or Kokuryukai. The BDS first appeared about 1901 and was an offshoot of another, older Japanese secret society, the Black Ocean or Genyosha. Like its parent, the Black Dragon was a militant, “ultra-nationalist” body which worked to expand Imperial Japan’s influence on the Asian mainland. The BDS initially concentrated on combating Russian interests in the vast Chinese province of Manchuria. Indeed, the Society took its name from the “Black Dragon” or Amur River which separated Manchuria and Siberia. The Black Dragon’s network of spies and saboteurs took an active part in the subsequent Russo-Japanese War (1904-05) and the Black Dragons later expanded their operations and influence throughout Asia and Europe and even the Americas.
The nominal founder and leader of the Black Dragon was Ryohei Uchida, but the true master, or “darkside emperor,” was Uchida’s shadowy and sinister mentor, Mitsuru Toyama, also a founding member of Genyosha. He reputedly was steeped in “extreme Eastern religious beliefs.”1 That suggests the mysticism and occultism attributed the Green Dragon Society. Might the scheming and secretive Toyama have played a guiding role in both societies?
Were the Black and Green Dragons, if not one and the same, two sides of the same conspiratorial coin? For instance, just as the Black Dragon (Amur) River delineated the northern limit of Manchuria, further south the much smaller Qinglong or Green Dragon River roughly followed the dividing line between Manchuria and China proper. If the Black Dragon Society was primarily anti-Russian in its focus, might the Green Dragon have been anti-Chinese or anti-Western? While the Black Dragon focused on the political side, did the Green deal with the more secretive occult realm?
One obscure but important reference which clearly distinguishes between the Black and Green societies appears in the memoir of Chinese strongman Chiang Kai-shek’s “second wife,” Ch’en Chieh-ju.2 She recalls that her husband contemplated a “completely secret system of private investigators” and considered as models the “Green and Black Dragon Societies of Japan and the Triad societies of Shanghai.”3 Thus, in Chiang’s mind at least, the two Dragons were entirely separate (though not necessarily unrelated), Japanese, and appropriate models for secret intelligence gathering.
As noted, the Black Dragon Society was heavily involved in spying and the kindred spheres of propaganda and subversion. As such, it basically functioned as an extension of the Imperial Army’s “special organ,” the Tokumu Kikan. Not to be outdone in anything, the Japanese Imperial Navy maintained its own secret service, the Joho Kyoko. Just as the Army utilised the Black Dragon to augment or handle its “special needs,” might the Navy have used the Green Dragon in the same way?
Trevor Ravenscroft & Karl Haushofer
The identification of the Green Dragon as a fundamentally mystical order most evidently appears in Trevor Ravenscroft’s 1973 The Spear of Destiny. It is not insignificant that Ravenscroft was a follower of Anthroposophy and its founder Rudolf Steiner, and his book is a distinctly Anthroposophist take on the nefarious occult forces behind Hitler and his Nazi Regime. Ravenscroft firmly connects the Green Dragon to German geo-politician and mystic Karl Haushofer, one of Hitler’s presumed spiritual mentors. According to Ravenscroft, Professor Haushofer “gained… extraordinary gifts through membership of the Green Dragon Society of Japan in which the mastery of the Time Organism and the control of the life forces in the human body is the central aim of ascending degrees of initiation.” Ravenscroft adds that “one of the highest tests of this type of initiation in the Green Dragon Society demands the capacity to control and direct the life force in plants in a somewhat similar manner to the former powers of the Atlantean people.” “Only two other Europeans have been permitted to join this Japanese Order,” [and who, one wonders, were they?] continues Ravenscroft, “which demands oaths of secrecy and obedience of far more strict and uncompromising nature than similar secret societies in the Western world.”4
The major problem with all this is that Ravenscroft’s sources are hazy or non-existent. He likely took a cue from the 1960 work of Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, The Morning of the Magicians. Those authors claim that Haushofer “is said [by whom?] to have been initiated into one of the most important secret Buddhist societies and to have been sworn, if he failed in his ‘mission,’ to commit suicide in accordance with the time-honoured ceremonial.”5 Assuming this to be an allusion to the above GDS, we are still faced with the lack of any identifiable source for the authors’ information.
Ravenscroft goes on the claim that members of the Green Dragon Society set-up shop in 1920s Germany and there joined forces with a group of Tibetan monks called the “Society of Green Men.” The latter were, in fact, the “Adepts of Agharti and Schamballah” and their leader was a mysterious “Man with the Green Gloves.”6 It also turns out that the Green Dragons and the Green Men had “been in astral communication for hundreds of years.”7 The united brethren soon established communication with the rising Herr Hitler.
Others have since elaborated on the above by turning the Green Dragons into an “inner cabal” of both Genyosha and the Black Dragon, and making them “but an outpost of a much larger conspiracy based on the even more secretive group known and the Green Men.”8 While fascinating, such assertions appear not to have any basis in hard fact.
But that is not to say they may not have a germ of truth. For instance, there was an occult figure in late Weimar Berlin sometimes referred to as the “Magician with the Green Gloves” who did become a short-lived soothsayer for Hitler and the Nazi Party. He was no Tibetan but, of all things, a Jew who went under the name of Erik Jan Hanussen. When he became inconvenient by accurately predicting the Reichstag Fire (or arranging it), his erstwhile Nazi pals killed him.9
Likewise, there could very well be something to a Green Dragon-Tibet connection. A green dragon, or Zhug, plays an important role in Tibetan mythology where it symbolises the “God of Thunder… bravery and all-conquering force.”10 More to the point, perhaps, a Japanese Buddhist monk named Ekai Kawaguchi made two visits to Tibet in the years before World War I, around the same time Haushofer was in Tokyo. On the surface, Kawaguchi seemed a simple religious devotee, but he is known to have had contact with at least one Japanese secret agent while in the Land of Eternal Snows, Narita Yasuteru, as well as an operative of British Indian intelligence.11 Kawaguchi also had links to Annie Besant and her Theosophist sect, another group accused of subversion and general skullduggery.12 More significantly, Kawaguchi was a devotee of Zen Buddhism.
In his 1989 The Unknown Hitler, Wulf Schwarzwaller claims that Haushofer was a master of various Eastern mystical traditions and “had familiarised himself with the Zen teachings of the Japanese Society of the Green Dragon.”13 More recent sources emphasise the Green Dragon’s intimate association with Zen, specifically its Soto branch, and claim that the “Green Dragon has had a tradition of secret propagation,” whatever that means.14
The Buddhist connection may offer some important clues. Buddhism originated in India and spread to Tibet and China, and from there to Japan. Zen (Cha’an) doctrine also had its roots in China. One of the most revered Buddhist “saints” in Japan is Kukai, an 8th-9th century mystic who spent years studying in China. Interestingly, his main place of enlightenment was the Green Dragon Temple in Xian where he was trained in occult, tantric traditions originating in Tibet. Returning to Japan, Kukai incorporated these into his version of True Land (Shingon) Buddhism.15 The problem is that Shingon was and is quite distinct from Zen, so which, if either, is connected to the Green Dragon?
To further complicate the picture, there are numerous references to a Chinese Green Dragon Society. Most are linked to the martial arts. Green Dragon kung fu societies are active throughout the world, but most appear to be of fairly recent origin. Oddly enough, during the 1960s, the Chicago-based Green Dragon Society was locked in a bitter feud with the rival Black Dragon Society! One version of the Chinese Green Dragon’s history pegs it as a Taoist secret society formed in response to the 17th century persecutions launched by the Jesuit-influenced Emperor Kiang Hsi. According to this, the secret society emerged from the Pure Thought Mystical School of Tao, and along with an implacable hatred for the Manchu Dynasty, it remained dedicated to the “practice of Taoist Alchemy and Immortalist Techniques.”16 That sounds a bit like what Ravenscroft described. The Green Dragon also reputedly operated under numerous aliases and disguises. A secretive and even sinister Green Dragon Society also shows up in at least two martial arts films: ‘The Deadly Sword’ (1978) and ‘Seven Promises’ (1980). Finally, a Green Society or Green Gang was (and arguably still is) a major force in the Chinese underworld.
So, could there be two Green Dragon Society’s, one Japanese and Buddhist and the other Chinese and Taoist? This much seems clear: the inter-pollination of Chinese and Japanese Buddhism, and the sects and secret societies they spawned, is centuries old. Within that context, just about anything is possible.
Other oddments, which may or may not mean anything, include the fact that during his marriage to another wife, Chiang Kai-shek paid a visit to a Green Dragon monastery. The late scholar Charles Rice, after sifting through everything he could find on the Green Dragon Society, wondered whether it might be nothing more than the karate club of the Japanese Emperor’s Imperial Guard!17 Strangest of all, perhaps, is a 2004 article from the South China Morning Post which describes the recent arrest of three members of the “Green Dragon Temple Cult” on charges of running a prostitution ring.18 The female victims were assured a place in heaven if they earned enough money for the cult.
Seven Heads of the Green Dragon
There is another, more involved, though no less mysterious, description of the Green Dragon Society that predates Ravenscroft by forty years and Pauwels and Bergier by almost thirty. It is almost certainly the source for much of what he and others have had to say about the GDS since. The work in question is the 1933 Les Sept Tetes du Dragon Vert [“The Seven Heads of the Green Dragon”] by Teddy Legrand. The title evokes the dragon with “seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads” mentioned in Revelations 12:3, although that beast is red, not green. At first glance the book seems to be just an obscure piece of French pulp fiction, albeit one replete with real people and real events along with many invented ones.
Basically, the book presents the Green Dragon or, more simply, “The Greens,” a sinister international cabal bent on world domination. An interesting detail is that these secretive conspirators number precisely 72 and were, presumably, the “72 unknown superiors” of conspiratorial legend.19 To achieve its nefarious aim, the Green Dragon generates war, revolution and chaos, and its hand is the unseen common denominator in such seemingly disparate events as the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the instigation of the Bolshevik Revolution, the murder of the Romanovs, the 1922 killing of German foreign minister Walther Rathenau, the abduction of White Russian general A. P. Kutepov and the apparent suicide of millionaire Swedish “Match King” Ivar Kreuger. All in all, the Green Dragon sounds like another version of the infamous Illuminati who haunt so many conspiracy theories.
At the time of the book’s action, 1929-30, the mysterious Greens are busy facilitating the rise of the “The Man of the Two Z’s” under whose “sharp spurs” Europe would soon tremble.20 The latter is a thinly-veiled and rather prophetic reference to Hitler who had barely come to power when the book was published. The “Two Z’s” were the interlocking arms of the Swastika.
The central figure of Les Sept Tetes… is a British secret agent, the ace of L’Intelligence Service, James Nobody, who may be the original literary inspiration for James Bond. He had already starred in a series of pot-boiler spy novels by French writer Charles Lucieto, and the latest was an effort to continue the franchise after Lucieto’s recent death. Interestingly, Lucieto was a retired spy, having served the French secret service in World War I. He liked to claim that his Nobody and similar yarns were roman-a-clefs which revealed true, if hidden aspects of recent history and current events. His publishers later implied that this had something to do with his untimely demise.
To no great surprise, Lucieto’s successor, “Teddy Legrand,” was a pseudonym. In fact, the author was Pierre Mariel who turns out to be a rather interesting fellow. Nominally he was a journalist, but like Lucieto he had ties to French intelligence. That has led to the claim that the latter “inspired” or even directed his literary efforts as it had his predecessor’s.21 More importantly, perhaps, he was a self-proclaimed expert on the occult. Some years later, under the name Werner Gerson, he would author one of the first books on Nazi occultism.22 Mariel himself was a member of both the Freemasonic Martinist Order and a one-time French grand master of the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC).23 Interestingly, in Les Sept Tetes… Mariel paints the Martinist Order as a conspiratorial sect which played a behind-the-scenes role in the French Revolution and later political upheavals, and which just might have links to the mysterious Green Dragon.24
In the book, brother spies Nobody and Legrand are inspired by their common curiosity about the fate of the Russian Imperial family. The chief object of fascination is an icon on St. Seraphim, supposedly found on the Tsarina Alexandra’s body, which bears a puzzling inscription, in English: “S.I.M.P. The Green Dragon. You were absolutely right. Too late.”25 They quickly determine that the first element, which is accompanied by a six point “kabbalistic” symbol, stands for “Superieur Inconnu, Maitre Philippe” [Unknown Superior, Master Philippe], a French Martinist mystic who was an early guru to the Tsarina Alexandra.26 They also note the Tsarina’s predilection for the “Tibetan” Swastika as a good luck symbol. The rest of the story follows the duo’s efforts to discover who or what constitutes the Green Dragon.
Some interest inevitably falls on Maitre Philippe’s successor as royal spiritual guide, Rasputin, who comes across as a tool of the Green Dragon, if not an outright member. Legrand/Mariel correctly observes that during World War I, the dissolute holy man maintained communication with mysterious “Greens,” or simply “The Green,” based in Stockholm in which Mariel portrays as another piece of a larger conspiracy.27 Interestingly, Colonel Stanislaus de Lazovert, one of the men later involved in the plot to kill the dissolute holy man, claimed that Rasputin was a member of the “Green Hand,” a secret order presumably backed by Russia’s Austrian enemies.28 Most recently and reliably, Russian investigator Oleg Shishkin linked Rasputin’s mysterious friends to a Berlin-inspired conspiracy which included German occult lodges and members of the ethnic-German Baltic nobility. Their secret brotherhood, Baltikum, used a green swastika as its symbol.
Coincidentally or not, one of the antagonists encountered by Nobody and Legrand is a Baltic Baron, Otto von Bautenas, whom they identify as no less than one of the “72 Verts.” Bautenas turns out to have been a very real person: an ex-adherent of Baltikum, a close ally of Lithuanian politico Augustine Valdemaras and leader of the fascistic Iron Wolf movement.
Mariel also implies that Anthroposophy kingpin Rudolf Steiner was mixed-up in all this skullduggery and “secret politics” through his connections to pan-German secret societies.29 He also drops Gurdjieff’s and Besant’s names in the same murky mess.
While the book’s action stays within the geographic confines of Europe, shifting from Constantinople, to Scandinavia, to Paris to Berlin, there are numerous references to the Orient, especially Tibet. Legrand and Nobody enlist the aid of one of their old antagonists, Jewish-born “international spy” I.T. Trebitsch-Lincoln, whom has transformed himself into the Tibetan lama Dordji Den. Here again, there is at least a kernel of truth; in 1931 the chameleon-like Trebitsch was ordained a Buddhist monk and became “the Venerable Chao Kung.”30
The pair eventually find themselves in Berlin, in the presence of The Man with the Green Gloves, an apparently Asian soothsayer who has set himself up much as the real Hanussen. They observed an eerie figure that seemed to have “complete mastery of his reflexes.”31 Was this the “control of the life forces” mentioned by Ravenscroft? Like a living statue, “not a muscle in his face moved” as the weird seer conversed in “excellent Oxford English.” Nobody and friend finally realise that they are standing face-to-face with “one of those famous Greens.” The description has led one recent author, Christian von Nidda, to conclude that the Greens were nothing less than “reptilian” beings!32
In the end, Mariel never clearly defines just what the Green Dragon Society is and is not. Doubtless, that was never his intention. Interestingly, there is no suggestion of any Japanese connection. However, as the episode with the Man with Green Gloves suggests, there is the spectre of a powerful, mysterious Asiatic hand at work. The true purpose of the Russian Revolution, he believed, was to destroy Europe’s eastern barrier against Asiatic intrusion. Mariel sensed a kind of “permanent conspiracy against the white race – against Western Greco-Latin civilisation – which seeks to sap, fracture and shake the edifice of already unstable Europe.”33 When the time came, the conspirators would “substitute him” [the Man of the Two Z’s] as a means of bringing about a New Order.
It also remains uncertain to what degree Mariel intended Les Sept Tetes… to be taken seriously. Clearly, that has not prevented some from doing so. Truth, fiction, or some strange amalgam of the two, Mariel’s little book is undoubtedly the inspiration for most of the claims about the Green Dragon Society which have sprung up since. We are still left to wonder whether, if all the exaggeration, obfuscation, superstitious dread and outright lies were cleared aside, there would be anything there at all. Maybe.
