Comte de Saint-Germain AKA Count of Saint-Germain AKA "der Wundermann aka Graf Saltikoff aka Marquis de Montferrat aka Comte Bellamarre aka Chevalier Schoening aka Chevalier Weldon aka Graf Tzarogy aka Major Fraser aka Prinz Ragoczy ;Master Rokoczi (who may have been another Magician using his name)(according to Landgraf Carl von Hessen-Kassel he was born to Count Rakoczy II of Transylvania, perhaps with Princess Vilante of Bavaria;

Portugal 1625? 1710? 1st public record is letter from 1735 - 1784 (deliberately vague about his birth and age.) but still reported at the Masonic Paris Convention of 1785, then Russia in 1786, and Paris in 1788 (HOWEVER, remember the Count of this French County would have been filled by another living individual after the last Count died, and his estates inherited)

Comments: Great Magician , medical doctor and chemist; believed in Balance; Alchemy ; lots of Impostors, not to be confused with St. Germain (AKA Master Rakoczi AKA Sir Francis Bacon) very unsupported theory); Freemason; Rosicrucian; Composer; The Seven Rays; This name has been used by other Occultists since his time, so sometimes it is difficult to tell if it is the original author of, for example Practical Astrology; A Simple Method Of Casting Horoscope; Practical Hypnotism, Theories And Experiments (he would have known of it as Mesmerism or Magnetism); Practical Palmistry; Deliberately obscured his biographical data, sometimes claiming to be much older than he appeared, but did die on February 27, 1784. May have been trying to hide an unfortunate bastard birth between a Nobleman father (Prince Francis II Rákóczi of Transylvania) and servant, but it's all speculation; the later Compte may have been Bonnie Prince Charley's cousin, the Marquis Montferrat (see Laurence Gardner's Shadow of Solomon pg. 277); arrested as a Jacobite spy in London in December 1745;
