“If one knows beyond any doubt that one is of the Dragon Blood, then the doors to the infinite can be opened wide. The planet needs its Elves and Fairies back, so the saying goes.  It needs the people for whom order and empathy come instinctively and whose love of the natural world comes before all else and arises spontaneously from the depths of their eternal souls.  Above all the planet needs its Firstborn Dragons to know who they are themselves.”  — Nicholas de Vere

In Loving Memory of  Nicholas de Vere:

May you pass fearlessly through the Gate of the Unknown to the other side
To the Outer Regions of Inner Space, which is called All of Existence
Outside the limited local awareness of Consensus Reality
For to doubt and inquire beyond the accepted answers
Leads to liberation in the unknown country of Self, the wilderness of Spirit
And the revelation of the ‘Mystery of Mysteries’
The realization of the Holy Graal of Immortality
We are All of Existence
We are the symbol for that which is beyond
The portal between Ultimate Reality and the manifestation
Of that Absolute into material duality
We therefore have no fear to declare the knowledge of the True Self
As the Highest Knowable Truth, the true Will from Within
Which goes forever onward into the Unknown, and which enters every Gate
Ever seeking the Secret Center of the Eternal!
We Dare to Dance across all boundaries and through all gateways
To forge the forbidden and the unknown into a New Reality
Coming forth by day and by night
As WorldBridgers to witness the Revelations of the
New Realm that has been rediscovered
Always in the Light of Love and Truth

Our Patriarch

“First amongst all of Arcadia is the Patriarch, for he is the incarnation of all of our blood.  Though we may live without him living amongst us, it is our duty to prepare for him that he shall meet her who will set him free from his curse and save us.
Know the Patriarch by his blood mark. He above all is the oldest of the Merovingians, and will display many talents and dispensations, and know things to mastery which have not been taught to him.  And he is darkest of us with great despair and melancholia.  And he, being pure of the bloodline, has the blood of all Arcadians running through his veins. And through his blood we can live again, as he can impart our ancestry unto us through the blood rite.
His talents and dispositions are greatest. His sorrow and sadness is greatest. His despair and melancholia is greatest.  His love and devotion to the bloodline and its peoples is greatest.
He may go anywhere in the world openly and live, but he lives the life of the dead, for he has never been loved. But by his knowledge and wisdom and talents he can be many people, yet always true to himself. For he remembers all aspects of lives past and needs no education or credential to be able to work and live.
He is the sacrificer of his own happiness for that of others of the bloodline.
His appearance is that of a man out of time, as is his disposition, for he is capturing the time previous to his present life, for that is his instinct. And as he is of all time, this be how he shows his true nature.” — The Book of the Holy Grail (Contributed by Ian von Rosenbach)

Who was Nicholas de Vere?

A Short Biography

In the first few years of his life, Nicholas de Vere was raised in the Hertfordshire countryside. At the age of seven, Nicholas’ family moved to the remote outskirts of the Kittenish village of Kemsing, and then later to isolated rural settings in Devon and Sussex.   Nicholas’ parents sought to protect Nicholas from the mediocrity and banality of most of society by retreating with him to the sanctuary of the English countryside. Nicholas’ father was a skilled backwoodsman and during these formative years Nicholas was instilled with country knowledge, as well as a deep respect for the natural world and its delicate ecosystems .

As he was growing up, Nicholas’ father taught him of the family’s royal Scottish origins and of its involvement with royal witchcraft within the dragon tradition, which had been passed down to Nicholas’ father by his own parents. Nicholas’ father was gifted with the “king’s touch.” His paternal grandmother – a Scottish Gael – was a skilled seer, and his maternal grandmother had spent years as a student of mediumship.

Both of Nicholas’ parents were deeply committed to his broader education, and fostered in him at an early age a love of Homer, the Sagas, classical history and mythology. Nicholas’ father was an ardent admirer of the work of Omar Khayyam. Consequently Nicholas grew and developed in isolation, detached from the vacuity of human culture, enveloped in a world of intellectualism, magic, mysticism and imagination.

Illustration for The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam: “Earth could not answer; nor the Seas that mourn”.

Nicholas was raised by his father to highly honor the female and, as a result of his father’s teaching, he discovered that the greatest spiritual expression of human relationship is seraphic in nature: the union of the divinity within the male and female.

At the age of twelve, Nicholas was magically dedicated to the dragon tradition formally, and at the age of thirteen he first enacted the rite known as “Starfire”. Following this period his mother obtained for him works by Aliester Crowley, and he studied the principals of the Black Arts in earnest, gaining a considerable degree of competence in ritual magic. At the age of fifteen Nicholas underwent the ancient rite of kingship which, in accordance with archaic Gaelic tradition, bestows the mantle of sovereignty arising from the very Earth itself.

By the 1980’s, Nicholas had become intimately conversant with a broad spectrum of magical traditions, and political perspectives. During this period he met and rejected numerous proponents of the Wiccan and New Age movements, considering them to be uninformed, self-deluding and magically incompetent.

On Midsummer’s night, 1985 Nicholas’ skill in and knowledge of magic was acknowledged. His family’s hereditary involvement in royal witchcraft and the Dragon tradition was recognized by the Black Country Covenant of the Baphometic Order of the Cubic Stone.

He was bestowed with the highest accolade of the covenant: that of Magister Templi. The Order traced its origins back to the Knights Templars and Nicholas was able to use his investiture as an invocational key in the pursuit of deeper, unwritten knowledge. In 1991 Nicholas was invested as a gartered and anointed knight of the Plantagenet Clan Donnachaid by Lord Lir of Orkney, the head of a cousin branch of the House of Vere.

During the 1990’s, Nicholas developed a series of associations with university lecturers and post-graduate scholars. Following the academic exchanges which ensued, Nicholas was encouraged by them to construct the basis for what is now known as The Dragon Legacy. This was further influenced significantly by his experience of seraphism and hierogamy during this period, and by years of commitment to the elven, Dragon tradition – a tradition within which he is recognized as a royal Dragon prince by the House of Vere, and is acknowledged as such by the British Government.

Nicholas de Vere has been the sovereign of the Dragon Court of the Royal House of Vere. As a proponent and scholar of magic he is unrivaled. He is the original magical prince; the rightful king of witches by familial inheritance whose ancient, royal elven blood lineage is unquestionable.

Nicholas had lived reclusively for the most part as a bachelor until the last year or so of his life.  He lived with his fiancée Lila and her young son in a quiet village in the Walsh countryside, and aside from his magical pursuits, he had a broad range of secular interests including an eclectic taste in music. He was a renaissance man, a polymath.

Nicholas was deeply concerned about environmental issues and animal welfare, concerns shared by his immediate family and by the House of Vere in general, whose number include skilled and experienced ecologists.

Nicholas had contempt for the blind pursuit of money and power, and valued above all things simplicity and transcendence, which he believed are key to the continued existence of life on Earth in the future.

Ancestry of Merovingian Prince HRH Nicholas De Vere

The Royal House of Vere – the Senior Angevin House of the original ‘Princes and Counts of Anjou’ – are latterly of Breton and Flemish extraction and the former senior, Hope-Vere of Blackwood, Scottish Branch traditionally observed the Flemish law of Noblesse Uterine, as well as matrilinear and family inheritance, in accordance with noble Scottish family law, which contemporarily and historically supports blood descent.

The Titles of Princeps Draconis and Prince de Vere, currently held by Nicholas de Vere, are acknowledged as foreign titles in confidential files held by the British Government’s Department of Internal Affairs: ‘The Home Office’ and are registered with them as ‘Official Observations’. These titles are recognized by the most senior branches of the House of Vere. The right of Fons honorum held by Nicholas de Vere is also acknowledged by Her Majesty’s government.

]HRH Nicholas de Vere, though accepting the existence of both with some considerable qualification; does not claim to be either a member of the contemporary British royal household or of its peerage in any sense, and does not claim any status or rank suggestive of such or appertaining thereunto. The Vere princedoms are not modern, socially derived titles; either assumed or bestowed, for or by, political expediency.

The princedoms of Vere are ancient cultural manifestations of genetic qualities carried in the historical Elven Blood Royal. Established in Angiers in 740 A.D. as a Royal House arising from far older sacral-regal, Pictish, Scythian Vere origins rooted in antiquity, the House of Vere is recorded in a single name and in an unbroken line for over one thousand three hundred years, and consequently is one of the oldest surviving royal dynasties in Europe.

The relationship between the Prince Mhaior – The Archduke of Argentina – who, by Normanised descent, is the Head of the Irish House of Vere and Nicholas de Vere; who – by Gaelic blood descent – is also Chief of the Tyrone Kildress Branch is that of 4th and 14th cousins. Both share various identical genes. Found in only 3% and 6% of the clinical samples tested in Britain, Nicholas de Vere and the Head of the House in Eire share two sets of rare genes each. The Prince Mhaior is of Royal Collison extraction and Nicholas de Vere has an extra set of these genes from the matrilinear descent which also supports the Royal Collison descent from Norfolk in his own lineage and echoes the selective and exclusive royal and noble marital alliances which have continued throughout the history of the House of Vere.

The House of Weir and Vere commissioned genetic tests to be undertaken to confirm the precise degree of relationship between their respective lines and in order to clarify any anomalies in genealogy that inevitably creep into the records as the mists of time occlude the past. This was achieved successfully and some records were amended to reflect genetic findings both in Nicholas’ lineage and that of another of his Vere cousins in Ireland, confirming that Nicholas’ descent is one of the senior bloodlines of the House of Vere.

However, the genetic makeup of the House of Vere manifesting generation after generation proved to be so unusual that, beyond the remit of the original commission by the family, the Department of Haemogenetics at London University took the Veres’ on as a special study case. At this particular stage of the research a Conference Presentation Document has been submitted prior to the delivery of a Medical Paper at a forthcoming Genetics Symposium in the United States, by an eminent professor in the department who is an internationally recognized pioneer in genetics. Further racial and mitochondrial studies on the Vere family are planned by the department.

“The princedoms of Vere are ancient cultural manifestations of genetic qualities carried in the historical Elven Blood Royal.

“Vere-de-Vere stalked into the English vernacular as a playful term meaning the grandest, proudest, most historic, indisputably aristocratic and absolutely creme de la creme of Anglo-‘Norman’ antiquity. In fiction the expression is used for characters of, or assuming, unquestionable ancient lineage – and with good cause. In the Middle Ages, owing to plagues and battlefield mortality, the average noble dynasty in England lasted not more than three generations. The de Veres, however, managed to maintain a line of twenty earls of Oxford over 561 years*.  (*Our note: The senior descents in the male line today reach back One Thousand Three Hundred Years). ” — Verily Anderson, quoted in Dragon Cede, Nicholas de Vere
“House of Vere fielded over twenty prominent earls in an unbroken line over 561 years of British history. The House of Vere was credited with being the senior bloodline of England, both by its contemporaries and by later historians, and the Veres acted for centuries as Great Chamberlains to the various royal dynasties that came and went over time. As Great Chamberlains, they were the closest advisors to the monarchs and were therefore the major influence or power behind the British throne. In all this time the family never considered it expedient to stoop to pick up the Crown.”– Dragon Cede, Nicholas de Vere

Vere Princedom

Who exactly were the Merovingians, you may ask, and what is so special about them? They were the first kings of what is now France, the first to unify the kingdom, and the first to preside over the prototype of the Holy Roman Empire. They were granted the title of New Constantine in perpetuity by the Pope, some believe, because the Vatican recognized the descent of the Merovingian bloodline from that of Jesus Christ, who, according to this theory, was the husband of Mary Magdalen, and sired a child through her. Mary and her child later fled to France, were their descendants married into the local Visigoth nobility.

This would explain why the Vatican granted the Merovingians the title New Constantine, in recognition of the descent from the King of Kings himself. It also explains why the Knights Templar wished to take control of Jerusalem – because they considered it their rightful inheritance. Christ, as the biological son of Joseph, was a descendant of King David, and therefore the rightful king of Jerusalem, so his descendants would have been as well. It would also explain why the Templars were called the “Guardians of the Grail”, and as many have pointed out, “Holy Grail” comes from the French word “Sangreal”, which could just as easily be translated as “royal blood”, meaning the bloodline of Christ.
