Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair was born Pierre Athanase Marie Plantard on March 18, 1920 in Paris, France[1]

He also claimed the name "Thuradane Vrix" (Hand of Sion) [1]

He married Anne-Léa Hisler in 1951.

He died 3 February 2000, aged 79.[1]

While his legitimate occupation was draughtsman, he is best known for being the principal perpetrator of the Priory of Sion hoax, by which he claimed from the 1960s onwards that he was a direct and legitimate male line Merovingian descendant of Dagobert II and the "Great Monarch" prophesied by Nostradamus.
