Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump,
The spirit-stirring drum, th’ ear-piercing fife;
The royal banner, and all quality,
Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
And O you mortal engines, whose rude throats
Th’ immortal Jove’s dread clamors counterfeit,
Farewell! Othello’s occupation’s gone.
–Othello Act 3, scene 3
Do you want to put a face to the progeny of Jove? Here it is. Sir Francis Bacon was, is, and shall forever remain the most respected of them since Pythagoras.
There most certainly was an actor named William Shakespeare, but he did not write the plays in which he acted. The writer was Sir Francis Bacon. This is beyond question, and highly important to this website because, according to no less than Manly P. Hall, Sir Francis Bacon edited the 1611 King James Bible.
The first edition of the King James Bible, which was edited by Francis Bacon and prepared under Masonic supervision, bears more Mason’s marks than the Cathedral of Strasburg.

The Lost Secret of William Shakespeare by Richard Allan Wagner
I suffer from the belief that in order to speed things along Mind directs my attention to the best possible sources. This is a classic example. I admire this man to no end. At the risk of eternal damnation, anybody who can read this work and still doubt that the real identity of the bard William Shakespeare was Sir Francis Bacon is either an academic or an idiot, if such a distinction is even valid in this crazy world of opposites in which we now love.
Bacon further dazzles us in Scene IV of Act II of the First Part of King Henry IV with the most conspicuous exhibition of code in all of the Shakespeare plays, in what many scholars call the “Francis page.” The least important character in the play is a soldier named Francis—so insignificant that his name isn’t included in the play’s list of “Persons Represented.” Yet, on the first page of Scene IV of Act II (quarto version), Francis makes his only appearance in the play.* On this one page, the name Francis appears 39 times, i.e. 17 times as an unspoken stage direction or prompt, and 22 times as spoken in a line. The number 17 corresponds to the name Bacon in the Pythagorean Cipher, and the number 22, as we have consistently seen, is Bacon’s birth date, i.e. January 22 (the 22nd day of the year). Moreover, it is no coincidence that the first utterance of the name Francis in Prince Henry’s opening speech comes precisely 33 words after his use of the keyword “hogsheads.”

Not knowing or understanding what is at stake, Richard Allan Wagner fails to realize the true significance of these numbers and the message they encode. You should not make the same mistake. But what he has done is decipher the code for us, and for that, we owe him some serious gratitude. This is a classic example of the progeny of Jove numerically signing their work. Utterly classic.
