that is to be published shortly. It also serves as an admirable
introduction to the Dragon Court itself.
As defined within the main body of the following text, the Imperial
and Royal Dragon Court represented herein, legitimately recognized
as the Sovereign Court of The Sovereign Dragon Nation by the
relevant and appropriate Government of a European Member State, is a
closed fraternity of individuals, representing those who trace their
ancestry and affiliations back to the ancient Grail and Dragon
A Closed Fraternity
When the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court was reconstituted by
King Sigismund in 1408 as the Societas Draconis, it was
based upon an ancient bloodline tradition which Sigismund
assumed that he had inherited from his presumed Egyptian and
Scythian ancestors through the Pictish, Dragon Princess Maelasanu
of Northumbria and the Ancient and Original Angevin Royal House
of Vere of Anjou, the Imperial Dukes of Angiers.
This line had descended through the Tuatha de Danaan (the Dragon
Kings of Anu) on the one hand, and the Egyptian Dragon Dynasty of
Sobek on the other. The latter strain included the bloodline of the
Davidic House of Judah who married into the descent of the
Merovingian Kings of the Franks.
Emperor Sigismund (as he was styled from 1410) was a son of
the House of Luxembourg - dynasts who flagrantly altered their
genealogy in order to be able to claim a fraudulent descent from
this Dragon Dynasty of Maelasanu and Anjou. It is from this descent
- from Maelasanu or Melusine - and upon her British, later
Angiers-Angevin, Dragon Court, that Sigismund claimed the right to
base Societas Draconis as a bloodline continuation of this ancient,
prehistoric, anti-Christian, pre-Catholic, British Elven
One of the most famous members of Sigismund’s misappropriated
organization was Vlad Basarrab or Draculea, the son of
Vlad Drakul. After Draculea’s death, his son Michael wrote
that his father proudly claimed a linear descent from the Priests of
the Dragon Court of Queen Sobekh Nefru of Egypt, whose
predecessor Amenhemet had built the Dragon Labyrinth of
Fayyum - dedicated to Sobekh - which was later
copied in Crete as the Labyrinth of the Minotaur.
The genealogy of the House of Drakul, Dracula
or Basarrab is well known and widely documented. Descending from
Atilla the Hun, this family was established in Central Europe by
the sons of Ghengis Khan. No bloodline with which the House
of Basarrab was associated or allied in marriage at that time had
any affiliation with any extraction that was remotely related with
the dynasties of Egypt.
It is obvious, therefore, that Draculea or Dracula
must have been claiming an apostolic succession, a spiritual
priestly lineage deferring to the Egyptian Dragon Court of Sobekh
Nefru through Sigismund’s assumed descent from Melusine. Her
ancestry actually can be traced back to the Scythian Dragon
Princess Scota, Queen Sobekh Nefru and the Egyptian
Cult of the Dragon.
Undoubtedly Dracula assumed erroneously that he had received this
ancient mystical honour during his investiture into Sigismund’s
Societas Draconis, and by virtue of Sigismund’s supposed descent
from Melusine and the ancient Angevin House of Vere. In his own
right, Dracula can claim no relationship to any early Angevins, nor
to the later second Anjou House of Plantagenet, except via an eight
link marital bridge which has no alliances that relate him by blood
Sigismund assumed a personal entitlement to this legacy in
1397, the date upon which he sought to reconstitute Princess
Melusine’s Dragon Court - as Societas Draconis - in a
manner that he deemed the most suitable to enhance his power base
and establish his royal claims. Following its subsequent formal
inception in 1408, the Court recruited members from a number of
prominent royal and noble houses. Historians have noted that these
were not particularly known for their religious orthodoxy, including
the later House of Vere in England, as one authority
on Sigismund’s Dragon Court has asserted.
Today, however, the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court
itself exists as a closed fraternity, a collective of individuals,
comprising those who, unlike Sigismund, can trace their
ancestry and affiliations back to the ancient, pre-Christian Elven,
Grail and Dragon families via Anjou. The Court retains the
traditional three tier degree system that Sigismund borrowed
and to which he appended three separate representations of the
alchemical Ouroboros emblem for the distinct ranks of the Court.
A fourth emblem, configured in the form of the Egyptian Ankh
or Albigensian Cross, was used by the family officers
of the Inner Temple.
The tripartite system was peculiar to the Scythians and Celts, whose
Druids incorporated a similar structure within their orders and
colleges. It later found expression within the Cathar
fraternity of Languedoc and also with the Witches.
It was developed within the Hierarchical Rule of the
Knights Templars with whom the Court had a strong historical
The Inner Temple is presided over by the Vere Grand Masters,
who are currently resident in Britain and Europe. Being essentially
an organization which emphasizes the crucial links between Dragon
families, the rank system within the Court takes second place to the
sense of blood relationship and the natural bond of co-operation
engendered by that relationship. Service, mutual support and respect
supersede those types of ambition and advancement which prevail in
other bodies which might, on the face of it, resemble the Dragon
Court model in some ways. Within such orders, sights are firmly set
towards material gain through supporting establishments which
themselves breed division and inequity.
The tenets of the Grail and Dragon traditions
are implicit in defining that we should be at one with the earth,
and cannot, therefore, presume dominion over it. Unlike those who
wish to profit unjustifiably from dubious Merovingian descent.
This philosophy is embedded in the concept of individual gnosis, and
lies at the very heart of the Draconian culture. It is
evident in all aspects of life itself. Emanating from the ancient
lore of the Elven Lords and Ladies of the Forest,
this ancestral legacy forms the bedrock upon which this and all
legitimately related Dragon Courts were originally founded.
The Tinker Kings
It is no secret that, through a process of calculated
indoctrination, our individual decisions are often prompted by fears
of non-conformity or insecurity. As a result we are conditioned to
purchase a variety of hyped goods and services in order to redress
personal inadequacies that do not, in fact, exist. In reality, the
prevalent forms of fear-based merchandising are little different
from straightforward protection rackets, and yet they are sanctioned
and encouraged by our governing establishments.
For centuries, western state authorities and their Churches
have enjoyed continued power over a subordinate majority, by
presenting a facade of sacrosanct jurisdiction which has seemed
inextricably linked to some form of royalty, nobility, or government
by divine sanction. By virtue of this, it is not surprising that so
many people now consider royalty, nobility and western religion to
be archaic components of a system of class and privilege which has
no place in the modern age.
What few recognize, however, is that for centuries the perceived
representation of royalty and nobility has, to a large extent, been
a fraud perpetuated by a dressed up merchant class elite who have no
real entitlement to their positions. This farce, with its inherent
tyranny and social abuse, has been endured through the ages, while
the true bloodline families have been suppressed and supplanted by
traders and brokers disguised in crowns and mitres.
In practice, there is nothing noble about these tinker kings, since
the word ‘noble’ relates to gnosis or wisdom. However, they have
long been defined as ‘aristocrats’ (meaning ’best rulers’),
and have thereby retained gratuitous stations of power and influence
in a self proclaimed higher echelon of society.
These tinker kings and their emissaries have plagued the western
scene for generations, leaving all to wonder how it is that our
supposed guardians and ambassadors are so often an embarrassment,
and are rarely representative of community requirement.
They refer to all and sundry as ‘subjects’, ‘commoners’
and ‘flocks’ using such patronizing terminology as ‘the
ordinary people’ or ‘the man in the street’, as if they
had some predestined right of supremacy. In reality, the fact is
that the individual establishments of these said aristocrats
(be they state heads, provincial overlords or clerical governors)
are frequently very questionable, and their personal roots are often
more ordinary than most.
Prior to these distortions, the nature of kingship was entirely
different. There was no requirement for Church sanction
through coronation by parvenu popes or archbishops. Kingship
was founded upon the ideal that all people were adherents of the
earth, and that the earth bestowed sovereignty upon its first born
people, the Elven Tribes. They were represented by a
Dragon Queen, and she empowered the Grail King,
who could not be a king without her.
In this environment, the right to kingship emanated from the female,
since Mother Earth was herself deemed to be female.
The overriding function of a king and queen was to maintain a
spiritually transcendent intelligence within the realm, thereby
enabling the organism (the kingdom) to function and develop in
symbiosis with its surrounding environment.
If a change of governmental practice is deemed necessary, then there
is nothing to gain by swapping the merchant class nobles for lawyer
class presidents. There is, however, much to be gained by
considering the advantages of properly defined Grail kingship
and the Messianic code of princely service within a
socially orientated constitutional framework.
This is the most logical route towards ensuring that true democracy
prevails for ’Democracy’ and is correctly defined as
’Government for the people by the people’, as opposed to the all too
familiar and oppressive ’Government of the people’.
Opportunists and Orators
As a result of a general disenchantment, many now suggest that
royalty and nobility should be marginalized in favor of
republican style government. Some determine that such changes
replace privilege with a more acceptable form of merit advantage.
However, this perception is equally untenable in practice.
All that happens is that headstrong merchant class opportunists are
replaced by polished lawyer class orators, thereby creating an
unwarranted new elite, with the same destructive hold on society.
Government of the majority by an exclusive clique, which uses
intimidating tactics to manipulate a consumer based economy, has
nothing whatever to do with the time honored spirit of Grail
kingship and the Dragon blood. Any shift from
monarchy to republicanism is simply a matter of different packaging.
In the event, we are still captive consumers enveloped within faiths
of fear. Our legacy from all this is an inbred contempt for anything
which does not conform to a system of venerated sale values. This
leads to the loss of our relationship with the ecosphere upon which
all species truly depend.
The practical application of the Grail Code
of service and guardianship was geared to the
hermetic principle, ’As above, so below’. It recognized that
no sane mind would, for the sake of short-term profit,
disenfranchise the body upon which it depends.
From medieval times, however, this is precisely what has happened,
the Church installing
dealers and merchants as puppet kings, traders who had no knowledge
of kingship, but who have spawned dynasties which, in turn, have
appointed their own colleagues as hereditary puppet nobles.
The Church and its appointees (be they monarchs,
bishops or pseudo nobles) have proclaimed the Messianic legacy to be
heresy. By doing this they have underwritten and promulgated
tyrannical systems of elitism, separatism and environmental
domination to the detriment of the many.
Out of Egypt
The Dragon Court can first be identified in Egypt under the patronage of the priest prince Ankhfn
Khonsu in about 2170 BC. It was subsequently established
more formally as a pharaonic institution by the twelfth dynasty
Queen Sobekh Nefru (c.1785 BC).
The Court pursued the teachings of Thoth, which had prevailed
from the time of Nimrod’s grandson King Raneb, a
pharaoh of the second dynasty. He reigned c. 2852 BC, about three
centuries before the Gizeh pyramids are considered to have been
In those far off times, the priests and temples were not associated
with religion as were their later successors in other lands, but
rather more with the duties of preserving and teaching the old
wisdom. The temples incorporated al-khame workshops. It was
the obligation of the priests to maintain the spiritual welfare of
the pharaohs, while ensuring the purity of a continuing royal
bloodline which progressed through the Dragon Queens
of the matrilinear Grail succession.
Dragon sovereignty had evolved in Egypt from
old Mesopotamia and its tradition was vested in
Sobek, the sacred crocodile (the messeh or mus-hus).
It was from the practice of kingly anointing with the fat of the
messeh that the Hebrew verb ’mashiach’
(to anoint) derived, and the Dragon dynasts
became known as Messiahs (anointed ones).
In 525 BC Egypt was conquered by the Persians,
whose kings were subsequently ousted by Alexander the Great’s
Macedonian army in 332 BC. This led to the Greek dynasty of the
Ptolemies and the well-known Queen Cleopatra VII.
Her liaison with the Roman general Mark Antony caused the
final downfall of the pharaohs, and Egypt was
subjugated by Imperial Rome shortly before the time of
Jesus. At length, as the Roman Empire collapsed,
Egypt fell to Byzantine governors and then,
after AD 641, to the sway of Islam.
By that time, the Grail Dynasty from David and Solomon
had progressed into the West, notably to
the Merovingian kings of Gaul, while
related branches established kingdoms in Ireland and Celtic Britain.
These lines were linked through marriage to parallel Dragon strains
from Ham, Japhet and Tubal Cain (which had
survived as the royal houses of Scythia and
Anatolia). The families had forged their own marital links
with the early princesses of the Egyptian succession.
The first PenDragon (Head Dragon) of the
Britannic Isle (Pen Draco Insularis). From this stock was
King Cymbeline of the House of Camu, who was installed in about
AD 10. The Celtic PenDragons were not father to son
successors in a particular descent, but were individually elected
from reigning family branches, by a Druidic council of elders,
to be the overall Kings of Kings. The last PenDragon was
Cadwaladr of Gwynedd, who died in AD 664. At around that time
much of Britain fell to the Germanic influence of the invading Anglo
Saxons and Angle land (England) was born, as distinct from Scotland and Wales.
This coincided with Byzantium’s loss of Egypt
to the Caliphs and following the last Roman Emperor in
AD 476, a completely new governmental structure evolved in the West.
Its ultimate overlords were the Popes, and outside the
preserved Celtic domains they appointed kings not by any right of
heritage, but to suit the political motives of the bishops
and the fast growing
Roman Church. It appeared that the days of the Dragon heritage were over. However, the true dynasts of
the original Grail stock always upheld their positions and
the spirit of the Dragon Court continued in
influential circles throughout Europe and the Near East.
The Dragon and the Grail
As the generations passed, the ideal of dynastic kingship spread
through the Mediterranean lands into the Balkans, the Black Sea
regions and Europe. But, in the course of this, the crucial essence
of the old wisdom was lost, and this gave rise to dynasties that
were not of the true kingly race. Instead, many were unrelated
warrior chiefs who gained their thrones by might of the sword.
The sacred culture of the ancients was, nevertheless, retained in
the Messianic line of King David of Judah (c.1008 BC),
whose significance was not in his generally portrayed descent from
Abraham and the Shemite strain, but in his
It was through this particular Dragon inheritance that
Solomon the Wise, some eight centuries after Queen Sobeknefru,
was enabled to recreate the Royal Temple project in Jerusalem.
This led to a Holy Land revival of the pharaonic Rosi Crucis
(dew cup) movement at a time when Egypt was beset by foreign
influences, first from Libya, Nubia and
Kush, and then from further afield.
As a result, the traditional marriage arrangements of the
pharaohs and princesses gave way to diplomatic
alliances. The symbol of the Rosi Crucis had
identified the Grail succession from beyond 3000 BC, and its
graphic representation was a red cross within a circle.
In 1408 (when Britain was in her Plantagenet era), the Dragon Court was formally reconstituted as a sovereign body
at a time of wars and general political turmoil. As we have seen,
the Court’s dubious re-emergence was instigated by Sigismund von
Luxembourg, King of Hungary. Having presumptuously and
erroneously assumed to have inherited the bloodline legacy in 1397,
he drew up a pact with twenty-three royals and nobles who swore to
observe ’true and pure fraternity’ within the Societas
Draconis, a style subsequently misidentified as the
Ordo Draconis (Hungarian: Sarkany Rend).
Although the original Court was by no means an Order in the
recognized chivalric sense, the misnomer was strategically retained
for the purposes of identification.
Along with Sigismund and the twenty-three nobles,
Sigismund’s second wife, Barbara Cille (daughter of the
Austrian Duke Hermann of Styria), was joint sovereign. Barbara
was a Vampire who was taught by Ibrahim Eleazar,
the keeper of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, and it
is she who is the model for the beautiful Countess Carmilla
Karnstein in Le Fanus novel of the same name.
Sigismund’s daughter Elizabeth was also a member of
the Court, and the inclusion of the entire family thereby achieved
the traditional overall standard of twenty six members or two
magical circles of thirteen. Others prominent in the Societas
Draconis were the Kings of Poland and Aragon, the Duke
of Lithuania and the unrepentant heretic, the Duke of Split.
The founding document of the Court confirmed that members might wear
the insignia of a Dragon incurved into a circle, with a
red cross, the original emblem of the Rosi Crucis,
which had identified the Grail succession from before 3000 BC.
Members were required to wear black attire on Friday -
the day ruled by Venus - and to all intents and
purposes they were to hold property in common.
The Society had no patron saint, it had no chapel or
chapter house and observed no feast or holy days. Members were
expected to have been ennobled prior to entry and were only elevated
within the Society in recognition of their contributions to the
welfare of the Crown. Sigismund never knighted anyone into
the Society. This ignored completely all the expected rituals
and affectations of chivalry prevalent at the time. At least the
Luxemburgundian got that right.
Shortly after this foundation, Sigismund was crowned
Holy Roman Emperor and, as a result, the noble fraternity
achieved a heightened status as an imperial edifice. Although the
Court’s ancient origins were steeped in pre Christian lore, Pope
Eugene IV was obliged to approve his Emperor’s non Catholic
establishment, for the nature of the Dragon, even if you fake
it, is such that its kingly tradition surmounts the mundane
constraints of denominational dispute. After all, King David,
Solomon and even Jesus were all pre-Christian
dynasts of the line.
There were, of course, those staunch upholders of the Church’s
articles of dogma who openly opposed the pre papal concept of
These bishops pronounced the Arthurian romances heretical and
blacklisted the writings of Merlin in 1546 at the
Council of Trento in northern Italy. Everything that was
magic to the ears, and all that was fresh air to the subjugated,
became denounced as sinister and occult.
The great enlightenment of the ’Grail Code’ of service
was condemned in a series of brutal Inquisitions from 1203, and
anything remotely connected with the female Draconian ethic was
justifiably dubbed Witchcraft.
