Tombelaine, during the reign of King Louis XIV,
was once owned by Nicolas Fouquet, superintendent of Finance at the
King's court. He was arrested and imprisoned and his land was
confiscated. The Castle on the island was destroyed, some ruins remain.
Now Nicolas Fouquet received a letter from his
brothe Louis Fouquet about a conversation about a Secret he shared with
The letter read:
Louis Fouquet to the Superintendent (Nicolas Fouquet)
Rome, the 17th of April 1656
I have delivered to M. Poussin the letter which you
have done him the honor of writing to him; he has witnessed all
the imaginable joy. You would not believe, Monsieur, either the
pains he takes for your service, the affection with which he
takes them, or the merit and probity he brings in all things.
He and I have planned certain things, of which I
shall be able to talk to you in depth, which will give you by M.
Poussin advantages (if you do not wish to despise them) that
Kings would have great difficulty in drawing from him, and that
after him perhaps no one in the world will ever recover in the
centuries to come; and, what is more, this could be done without
much expense and could even turn to profit, and these are things
so hard do discover that no one, no matter who, upon this earth
today could have better fortune or perhaps equal. As I returned
your letter to you for a moment, I forgot to tell you that you
will have his renewed patent withdrawn in honorable terms.
Shortly after Fouquet's arrest King Louis XIV
acquired Poussin's Les
Berger d'Arcadie and hid it in the Palace of Versailles.

Contemporary texts say that the red-haired Celtic
"Redones" or "rose people" (Rutheni/Rhodanim -
Theophilius called them Rhos and Rus is where the name Russia came from.) settled both Rennes in the Midi
area of the Languedoc
Interestingly, one interpretation of the King Arthur legends is that
"Arthur" (literally Earth Bear) or "Ursus" was really
Riothamus, a Dark Age
Celt ruler of a
"Thalassocracy" that spanned Brittany in France and Cornwall in England and possibly the west coast
Many of the places near the Breton Rennes are associated with Arthur and the
Grail legends, and many of the Breton kings had Judaic names and some
scholars derive Riothamus' name from... Joseph of Arimathea, the supposed
bearer of the Grail to Glastonbury.
Is this the source of these legends?
