The Priory of Sion Forgeries were created in the mid-1900's. The creation of false genealogy was a means to an end rather than an end in itself.

The false genealogies primarily comprised

  • False ancestry from Jesus and Mary Magdalene to the Frankish Merovingian kings
  • False modern descent from Merovingian kings
  • Related false lines.

The false genealogies clustered about

  • The Knights Templar


Pierre Plantard

Antisemite, embezzler and forger Pierre Plantard - supposed descendant of Merovingian king Dagobert II (and Jesus and Mary Magdalene, since you apparently cannot have too much of a good thing) - successfully planted 'Prieuré de Sion' forgeries in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris during the 1960s.
