Now that's a very interesting link. It reveals how deeply Tracy Twyman herself is involved in this 'project' of de Vere's. And she herself points out that his real -- or at least original -- name is Tom Weir. (I presume he would have legally changed it by now.) A little bit of Google research using this name turns up some very interesting material.
First, it seems there are serious doubts about "Nicholas de Vere's" claimed heritage. Researchers using known 'benchmark' sources cannot verify even the more recent claims of his descent:
Notice that the name of 'Sir' Laurence Gardner comes up again. It seems that Tracy Twyman also has a 'title' in this new nobility (see links below).
Second, it seems that there has been quite a bit of strife over the website for 'The Dragon Court' of late. "Nicholas de Vere" has "gone commercial" after establishing himself as anti-commerical, and has not been very 'noble' about it.
There is even a thread on dragoncourt.org, the former host site for the 'free' copy of the book now published as "The Dragon Legacy", about the controversy.
The main forums are quite interesting as well. Anyone wanting to research the topics raised in the book will find lots of pointers and help. I'm sure. But not much loyalty to the founder anymore. The community seems to have broken away to pursue the general theory proposed by Nicholas de vere/Tom Weir without accepting him as its representative.
