Charles-Philippe, Duke of Anjou
Prince Charles-Philippe Marie Louis d’Orléans, Petit-fils de France, Duke of Anjou, was born in Paris, France on March 3, 1973. He is the eldest of two sons of Prince Michel Joseph Benoît Marie d’Orléans, fils de France, comte d’Evreux, and his wife the former Béatrice Pasquier de Franclieu. His paternal grandfather was the late Henri, Count of Paris who was the Orléanist pretender to the French throne as Henry VI. As such, Charles-Philippe would have the status of petit-fils de France with the style of Royal Highness.
In 2004, Prince Charles-Philippe was elected Grand Master of a branch of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem, an Order of Chivalry that dates back to the 11th century Crusades.
Charles-Philippe recently founded the St Lazare Foundation financed by the World Society, an international think tank whose mission, inspired by the Count of Paris, is to rationalise the problem of the planet’s future needs for water.
Gorbachev’s Gaia Graphics
Let’s look at Green Cross as it portrays itself. In ancient Greece, the color green symbolized victory. Green means go, as in all systems are in order. Green is youthful. Green is the symbol of living growing things, a symbol of nature. A healing color, a soothing color. It’s also the color of envy. It is also the recognized color of Muhammad and Islam. Next is the Cross. It is the Swiss adaptation of the Holy Cross, the most potent and memorable symbol of Christ and Christianity. However, there’s already a Green Cross and has been for close to nine hundred years.
The original Green Cross is attributed to the Hospitaliers of St. Lazarus, the Vert Cross. A religious order appearing in the First Crusade, famous for protecting lepers. Is Gorbachev subliminally informing us we’re lepers and he’s attempting to protect us?
Alan Watt: [Mikhail Gorbachev] was knighted when he went to England into the Knights of Lazarus and the Knights of Lazarus symbol is the Green Cross.
