Publisher's Synopsis

St. Germain was considered a mystic, philosopher, and master alchemist of the 17th century who held the key to immortality. Sightings of him after his "death" by high-profile, credible people added to the legend. This is the most rare and sought after work concerning his life. The author was able to procure documents unavailable to others, which thereby allows some of the mystery to drop away.

Nowhere beyond this book will one find documents written in St. Germain's own hand, providing proof of his whereabouts and concerns during certain parts of his life. Cooper-Oakley does an impressive job tracing his movements between countries, thereby revealing many mysteries and secrets that surround him.


Prince Karl of Hesse, writing of M. de St. Germain, says:

“Some curiosity maybe felt as to his history; I will trace it with the utmost truthfulness, according to his own words, adding any necessary explanations. He told me that he was eight-eight years of age when he came here, and that he was the son of Prince Ragoczy of Transylvania by his first wife, a Tekeli. He was placed, when quite young, under the care of the last Duc de Medici (Gian Gastone), who made him sleep while still a child in his own room. When M. de St. Germain learned that his two brothers, sons of the Princess of Hesse-Wahnfried (Rheinfels), had become subject to the Emperor Charles VI., and had received the titles and names of St. Karl and St. Elizabeth, he said to himself: ‘Very well, I will call myself Sanctus Germano, the Holy Brother.’ I cannot in truth guarantee his birth, but that he was tremendously protected by the Duc de Medici I have learnt from another source.”
