velvetlimelight Jeanne Bécu, better known as Madame du Barry, was born on this day in 1743. The last mistress of Louis XV of France, she's portrayed here with the King, in a painting by Hungarian artist Julius Benczur (1874).

_informedcitizen_ #CountSaintGermain: #TheImmortal
IS IT POSSIBLE that a man can achieve #immortality - to live forever? That is the #startling claim of a #historical figure known as #CountdeSaintGermain. #Records date his birth to the late 1600s, although some believe that his longevity reaches back to the time of #Christ. He has appeared many times throughout #history - even as recently as the 1970s - always appearing to be about 45 years old. He was known by many of the most #famous figures of #Europeanhistory, including #Casanova, #MadamedePampadour#Voltaire, #KingLouisXV#CatherinetheGreat, #AntonMesmer and others.

Who was this mysterious man? Are the stories of his immortality mere #legend and folklore? Or is it possible that he really did discover the secret of defeating #death?

ORIGINS

When the man who first became known as #SaintGermain was born is unknown, although most accounts say he was born in the 1690s. A genealogy compiled by Annie Besant for her co-authored book, The Comte De St. Germain: The Secret of Kings, asserts that he was born the son of Francis Racoczi II, #PrinceofTransylvania in 1690. Other accounts, taken less seriously by most, say he was alive in the time of #Jesus and attended the wedding at #Cana, where the young Jesus turned water into wine.

He was also said to be present at the #councilofNicaea in 325 A.D.

What is almost unanimously agreed on, however, is that Saint-Germain became accomplished in the art of #alchemy, the #mystical "science" that strives to control the elements. The foremost goal of this practice was the creation of "projection powder" or the elusive "#philosopher'sstone," which, it was claimed, when added to the molten form of such base metals as lead could turn them into pure silver or gold. Furthermore, this #magical #power could be used in an elixir that would impart immortality on those who drank it.

lors1997 May 11, 1745

On May 11,1745 the Battle of Fontenoy took place between the French forces under Maurice de Saxe and King Louis XV against the allies forces of Britain, Dutch republic , Holy Roman Empire and Hanover. This battle was an offensive act executed by the French to take over Tournai in which fell under French control after the battle. It is said that. It's forces were consisted of 50,000 men, also the French lost 7,000-7,500 men and the allies lost 10,000 to 12,000 men. After the battle the British forces retreated and went back to England dealing with internal issues, also the French started to show they were capable of wining against the allies forces. Also the British blame the Dutch for the lost and the Irish brigade of the French forces lost more than half of their officers and up to 600 men. Also King Louis XV has experience war and he himself hated what he has seen, and general Saxe has been rewarded by King Louis for his victory at the Battle of Fontenoy. #battleoffontenoy #waroftheaustriansuccession #france #austria #dutch #greatbritain #austrian #british #french #history #war #warhistory #kinglouisxv
