The Dragon Legacy is a new collection of essays on the "Deresthai Culture" with a hip introduction by Tracy Twyman of Dagobert's Revenge. This 377-page tome with numerous appendices, written by HRH Prince Nicholas de Vere, Sovereign Grand Master of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court, purports to be an "Official History of the Dragon Peoples."
Far from being the characters of fable, de Vere explains, the Elven race, including Fairies, Dragons, Witches, Picts (Pixies) and Vampires, were very real beings whose blood rituals sustained their superconsciousness and transcendent vision, and maintained their positions as overlords of mankind. The author claims, these gods of flesh and blood were the only gods that ever actually existed; myth transformed them into ethereal deities. Flesh and blood they were, he claims, and their bloodlines descend to the present day through the Siddhe of India and the Druids of Britain. In fact, de Vere claims to be part of this lineage.
The Scythians, a.k.a. the Danaan (d'Anu), were descendents of the Anunnaki, who, de Vere claims, were not extraterrestrials. In Scandinavia, the Danaan became the Danes or Vikings, and produced a cousin lineage, the Swedes and the Ruotsi clan that founded Russia. In Denmark the castes were called the Jarl, Carl, Thrall. In India the castes were the Brahmins, Ksatriyas and Sudras. But the Scythian Danaan who migrated to Eire (Ireland) and the rest of Europe were a "race apart." They were a ruling caste, claims de Vere. They are the Merovingians.
The Scythians originated in the Balkans, Transylvania, Carpathia and Ukraine. In general, the Scythians ("people of the powers") were tall, pale-skinned, with golden red hair (the red heads) and green eyes. The Celtic lineage were stocky, squat with dark hair. The Royal Dragon family of the Jews - the House of David - made the Israelites an early Aryan nation. In fact, Jesus and his mother Mary are often depicted with red hair. The Scythians and Aryan Scythian-Gaels had settlements in Israel and Judea. The Aryans were a horse culture.
The Scythian caste system consisted of three closely interknit cooperating races. From this encounter, de Vere explains, arose the eastern branch of the Aryan, Vedic "Hindu" religion, with its own Druids or magi, the Brahmins. The Vedic religion, claims de Vere, stemmed from this contact with the Elven gods and goddesses who migrated after the flood from the Balkans and Transylvania to Sumeria. He claims, the Tantra and the Qabalah are descended from ancient Ubaid Druidic philosophy, and Sumeria is not the cradle of civilization, but is perhaps the high chair. The first Sumerians, he writes, were Ubaid Overlords from Central Eurasia.
De Vere laments that democracy has done away with the caste system. He explains that the caste system was not an arbitrary set of divisions or inequalities established through force or oppression. The system reflected the fact that people had varying capabilities, gifts and talents. Each group had its function in society. This is the way it should have stayed, according to de Vere, but the Roman Church, containing mostly peasants, clawed its way to the top and upturned the caste system on a false document called the Donation of Constantine. Following this, a Thousand-Year Holocaust massacred the Elven Race.
Today, complains de Vere, the world is run by peasant tinkers who have put a price tag on everything. The true Overlords are now on the bottom, "while the increasingly acquisitive Peasants and Merchants are at the top, having wrested their positions from the block-headed Warriors." He writes: "The end product of this fiasco over the last millennium and a half can be smelled in the air, tasted in the water supply and seen in the eyes of diseased, starving third world children. Its results can be heard in the screams of animals gratuitously tortured in experiments aimed at testing the toxicity of vanity products…" And in the current system, our leaders have no accountability, as they would have had in dynasties past. The usurper Tinker Kings, the current Monarchy of England, asserts de Vere, are "false monarchies based not on service or transcendent wisdom, but on worldly greed, tyranny, trade and usury."
There is much to learn from this alternate history of the world, for instance, that the influence Vampires have had on European culture should not be underestimated. Who knew Vampires inspired modern wheeled transport, invented large-scale tourism, and lent their images and their kilts to the lids of shortbread tins? The Vampire, de Vere explains, was a "Witch" in the distinct royal caste of Scythian-Celtic society. Vampires were individuals and families who used the practice of drinking blood to achieve specific aims and fulfill social obligations of their rank and position. In fact the etymology of the word Vampire is "Overlord." The author warns against Poseur Vampirism. If one inflicts fear in the victim before obtaining blood, the blood will contain ingredients not worth imbibing. It must be freely given.
De Vere also discusses Tolkien's "Middle Earth," which he claims "plots the fortunes of the Elven families" and corresponds to about the year 10,000 BC. In fact, he asserts, Tolkien's "Third Age" could be comfortably situated pre-flood at about 22,000 BC if we disregard our simplistic caveman indoctrination. Other points of interest you'll learn from de Vere are that the "reptilian" scales of the gods and goddesses of Sumeria were actually traditional metal armor. The mermaids of the mere pools wore scaled armor as well. The tall tales told by David Icke regarding shapeshifting reptilians of yore are just that: tall tales. For a hint of what Prince Nicholas de Vere thinks of Icke's wild talk, see his interview with Tracy Twyman at [www.paranoiamagazine.com]
Is de Vere a Satanist? He states in his interview with Tracy Twyman, "originally the Satans in Biblical terms were nothing more than Circuit Prosecutors within the Jewish Theocratic system. Who in their right mind would worship lawyers?" He also asserts: "Religions happen when people don't get the point of the message and blindly worship the message and the messenger, instead of grasping the gnosis inherent within the words that the message conveys."
No short review could touch upon the vast subject matter contained in this book and the compelling expertise of its author, but with my max word count approaching suffice it to say: This Book is a TRIP!
