The letter that predicted three world wars

The letter that predicted three world wars


A renowned conspiracy in the last hundred years is that of Albert Pike’s letter to Giuseppe Mazzini.  It is said that a letter in 1871 was written by Pike, predicting the need for three world wars systematically fermented to destroy religions and usher in the secular era. The first two world wars, accurately fit the description in the letter and so it is important that the prediction for world war III is closely examined. It says in the letter that the third world war should be fermented between political Zionists and the Muslim world.

The contents of the letter can be accessed on many forums and websites on the internet.  The original letter however is nowhere to be found. It is said that the letter was present in the British Museum but removed at the request for Baron Rothschild.

To settle the authenticity of the letter, the route of historical verification should be taken.  If the history of the letter is traced only to a time that dates after the second world war, than the theory would not hold much water and it’s extremely likely that the letter has been hoaxed. Even if it predicts a third world war, one can attribute it to the conclusion of the ill feeling in the Muslim world after “World War II” because of the creation of the state of Israel.

If however, the letter can be traced back to a time before the second world war, than it indeed has significance, even more so that if its origin  predates  world war 1.





Chronological Analysis of World War III letter

  • Albert Pike (December 29, 1809 – April 2, 1891) letter to Giuseppe Mazzini (22 June 1805 – 10 March 1872) was allegedly dated 15th August, 1871.

Pike and Mazzini were contemporary as per historical record and they did have several meetings.

  • In the book Le diable au XIXe siècle (1894) by Gabriel Jagond-Pager a.k.a. Leo Taxil (March 21, 1854 – March 31, 1907) the first instance of the letter from Pike to Mazzini is found.

Leo Taxil was by reputation a famous Hoaxer

Not much is known about Domenico Margiotta. It could be another pseudonym for Leo Taxil.

  • In the book by Taxil and Margiotta, there is nothing of the three world war plan and nothing especially prophetic-it simply describes that Freemasonry plans to overthrow all religions.


There is record of Caro y Rodriguez and he did indeed is renowned for his efforts against Freemasonry.

  • William Guy Carr (June 2, 1895 – October 2, 1959) cites Caro Y Rodriguez and the letter in his book Satan: Prince of this world.

As the writings of William Guy Carr do not predate the Second World War, therefore his account can be discounted.  His reference was Cardinal Y Rodriguez and so the Chilean cardinal’s unabridged version of the book “Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled” holds more significance as it predates the second world war, particularly if the version of the letter (in 1925) is the same as one that is present today.

It could well be that the Cardinal read the letter that was part of book written by Leo Taxil. This book “Le diable au XIXe siècle” is enlisted in the British Museum. There is no record of the original letter in the museum and therefore the notion that Baron Rothschild got it removed should be dismissed.

 One should also note that Taxil’s letter is not the version that is available today have today and does not depict the three world wars. Therefore as compelling as it may feel and as lekker the thought might be to pursue this further,  it does not lead to any substantial finding.

Nonetheless history has proven that this present era is one of “Novus Ordo Seclorum” and wars against religions are certainly brewing.
