Count Louis Hamon is one of the most prominent clairvoyants of the nineteenth century. His real name is William John Warner, which he changed after he discovered the gift of clairvoyance. He became famous under the name of Heiro, which is translated from the Latin as “hand”.
John was born on November 1, 1866 in the Irish town of Bray (Bray) near Dublin. His father was an English businessman, his mother was a French gypsy. Already in his youth, John had discovered the unusual ability to “read” along the lines on the palms of his classmates and teachers, and in 10 years he wrote a book on palmistry.
Later, when his father went bankrupt as a result of an unsuccessful land deal (as predicted by Heiro), he studied the lines on the palm of a stranger on a train. Heiro told this man that he is the second Napoleon and great things are waiting for him, but his life will have his Waterloo in the image of a beautiful woman. A few years later, this man – Irish leader Charles Stewart Parnell was completely defeated by divorce from Catherine O’Shea.
Heiro traveled extensively in India, where he studied transcendental meditation and the existence of the soul outside the body. Once, in one of the Indian cave temples, Heiro was allowed to study an extremely ancient manuscript book. It was made of leather, cut into large sheets, written in hundreds of beautiful drawings with text about when, where and how the facts of hand predictions were confirmed in life. It was probably the oldest manuscript for the study of the lines of the hands, open for a moment to a European.
After staying in India for three years, Louis received an inheritance from a relative and returned to London. Fame brought him a prediction made by Arthur James Belfort that he will take the post of Prime Minister of England. After the prediction came true, Arthur and Louis became good friends.
Heiro became famous after he assisted the police in finding the killer in the East End. The soothsayer was asked to “read” the bloody handprint on the door jamb of the apartment where the murder occurred. Heiro said that this trail was left by the illegitimate son of the murdered, whose existence the police did not even suspect. Three weeks later, the young man was found and arrested.
Well-known writer Oscar Wilde Louis Hamon predicted major troubles in 7 years, which he will be able to avoid only if he changes his lifestyle. Oscar Wilde did not take seriously the words of the soothsayer. Exactly 7 years later, he was arrested on charges of homosexuality and put in jail.
In 1894, Heiro moved to the United States and immediately became famous after some fortunate fortune-telling by some famous Americans. One of them – Dr. Meyer from Chicago, shortly before the experiment was sentenced to death for murder for having poisoned several patients. Heiro predicted that this man would die in peace after several years behind bars. On the eve of the execution, Heiro happened to once again read Dr. Meyer’s hand, and he confirmed his previous opinion that the execution would not take place. The next day, the Supreme Court reviewed the sentence and the death penalty was replaced by life imprisonment. The criminal doctor died in custody 15 years later.
Another stunningly accurate prediction concerns the fate of Mrs. Leyter’s daughter from Chicago, who presented Heiro with the imprint of her daughter’s palm. The seer promised the girl marriage with a foreigner – she will become the queen of the Eastern state, but she will die young. Indeed, Mary Leiter became the wife of Lord Curzon, and then the wife of the Indian viceroy. Sadly, she died young.
In his speeches throughout America, Heiro argued that in the palm of a newborn who lived on the earth for one hour, there are already lines along which one can judge his future. Rich, but tired, he returned to England, fed up with questions from numerous customers about how they would get rich and when it would happen.
Visited the famous seer and Lord Horatio Kitchener. In 1894, Heiro, having studied the lines of his palm, by 1914 had predicted his brilliant career in the military field and warned Kitchener that in 1916 he would be in danger of being at sea. Indeed, in that year, a ship sailing to Russia, carrying Kitchener, was blown up on a German mine.
In 1900, the Shah of Persia awarded the Earl of Louis Hamon with the Order of Leo and the Sun. A few months before, the count had saved his life by predicting the danger that threatened the shah during his visit to the Paris exhibition. Additional precautions were taken and the life of the Shah was saved.
In 1902, King Edward VII of England asked the soothsayer to calculate a favorable day for his coronation. Louis Hamon determined the day, but warned the king that he would live to 69 years. And he predicted to King Edward VIII that he would abdicate the throne because of the woman he loved.
In 1904, Heiro visited Russia at the invitation of Nicholas II, to whom he predicted his fate, the end of the Romanov dynasty and the revolution of 1917.
