WHO WAS THE
COMTE de SAINT-GERMAIN?
The Comte de Saint-Germain is an 18th-century adventurer whose true identity remains unknown.
While not the most contemporary figure on the list, Saint-Germain was very well-known in his day, he was even nicknamed the Wonderman. He knew nearly all the European languages and had a comprehensive knowledge of history. Not only that, but he was also a musical composer, a capable violinist, and his accomplishments as a chemist, on which he based his reputation, were in many ways considerable.
Considering all this, it's quite strange that Saint Germain’s real name, parentage, or place of birth are speculative at best. The most common version is that he was a Portuguese Jewish man. His travels took him from France to England to Russia and he most likely died in 1784, but some say people saw him in Paris in 1789.
