    JRR Tolkien – a very important investigator of the ‘Most Noble Order of the Knights of the Garter’…. The Knights of the Garter founded 1348 in Woodstock, Oxford (a British Order with NINE Holy Roman Emperors as Past Members). LOTR_1 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr I think JRR Tolkien was trying to tell everyone that 'The Lord of the Rings' refers to the 'Knights of the Order of the Garter'. (Tolkien was Merton Professor of English Language and Literature and Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, from 1945 to 1959). The Order of the Knights of the Garter was founded in Woodstock, Oxford, eight miles distant from where Tolkien would meet with the Inklings in the Eagle and Child Public House in Oxford.

    I’m in agreement with Firestarter that James Stuart (the Old Pretender) and Bonnie Prince Charlie (the Young Pretender) are not listed by Wikipedia as being Knights of the Garter. I’ve also undertaken a conscientious check of all the Knights of the Garter listed by EH Fellowes MVO, MA, Mus.Doc, Minor Canon of Windsor, Hon Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford in his book ‘The Knights of the Garter 1348 – 1939'. The copy of this book was once owned by Arthur Cochrane, Clarenceux King of Arms so I would have expected it to be a complete list of Knights of the Garter. However, it appears James and Charlie have been omitted for some reason. James Stuart by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Bonnie Prince Charlie by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

    Powerful notes and PDF docts. Lyndon Larouche (founder of the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR)weekly newsmagazine) was a very interesting character. Larouche was a candidate for the US presidency from 1976 to 2004 and in 1996 he took over 5% of the nationwide vote according to Wikipedia. Thanks for the info. I also like the fact that P2 stands for Propaganda Due (Part 2). P2 was a Masonic lodge under the Grand Orient of Italy, founded in 1877.

    Great thread - good research - thanks. The British Govt have an interesting track record in drug dealing. e.g. 19th Century Opium Wars. Opium Wars Political Cartoon by Prince Arthur, on Flickr From Wikipedia: 'The Opium Wars were two wars in the mid-19th century involving Great Qing and the British Government and concerned their imposition of trade of opium upon China, thus compromising China's territorial sovereignty and economic power for almost a century. The clashes included the First Opium War (1839–1842), with the British naval forces, and in the Second Opium War (1856–1860), also known as the Arrow or Anglo-French Wars to the Chinese, Britain was aided by French forces. The wars and subsequently imposed treaties weakened the Qing dynasty and Chinese governments, and forced China to increase its imports from colonial and imperial powers.
