Kaspar Hauser (1828)


Kaspar Hauser (1828)
In May 1828, a boy of about 17 appeared out of nowhere in the town of Nuremberg in Germany. He said his name was Kaspar Hauser, but that was virtually the only useful information he could provide. An anonymous letter he was carrying stated that Kaspar had been put in the writer’s care as a baby on 7 October 1812, and that since that time he had been brought up in virtual isolation from the outside world.
The story of Kaspar Hauser caused a sensation at the time. Some people accused him of being an attention-seeking fraud, while others took his story at face value. He stuck to it doggedly for five years, until he was stabbed to death by person or persons unknown. His mysterious murder, and his strangely secretive upbringing, led many people to speculate that he was the child of a noble family that someone wanted out of the way.
One possibility is that Kaspar was the Grand Duke of Baden’s son, who had been born on 29 September 1812 and supposedly died a few weeks later. The theory is that, rather than dying, the boy was abducted and imprisoned. If this was true, then Kaspar should have inherited the dukedom when his father died in 1818. As it was, though, the title passed sideways to another branch of the family. One of the chief beneficiaries was the Countess of Hochberg, who many people consider the most likely suspect in the case. Recent DNA tests have given tantalizing hints of a link between Kaspar Hauser and the Baden family.

Preface by Nick Redfern

JFK, the Bilderberg Group and the New World Order – conspiracy theories abound on today’s internet, but they are nothing new. Taking a long-term view reveals century after century of covert conspiracies, murder plots and political intrigues. The history of the world is riddled with hidden agendas, scheming politicians and secretive organisations.

Did the U.S. government fake the 9/11 terror attacks? Was the British establishment behind the death of Diana, Princess of Wales? Conspiracy theories like these may be a modern phenomenon, but the basic idea – that world events are controlled by cynically duplicitous schemers – is as old as history. When the heir to the English throne died in 1120, they said it was an accident – but it was an accident from which certain people benefited a great deal. When the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, it was in response to blatant Polish aggression... which just happened to be the work of Nazi soldiers dressed in Polish uniforms. As Niccolò Machiavelli said 500 years ago, “the end justifies the means”. History is often dismissed as a dull subject, but it leaps into all-too-contemporary life when seen through the eyes of a Conspiracy Theorist! This fast-paced account tells you everything you need to know about the convenient accidents, false flag operations and hidden agendas that have shaped the course of history.
