Baconian Evidence for Shakespeare Authorship


Recommended Posts

A great starting resource and a popular page on SirBacon.org is the "Evidence" page:

Baconian Evidence for Shakespeare Authorship

The page has a list of evidence and several important links to more information. 

This page can be updated. Please feel free to offer a suggestion of what may be added. Together we can build a supreme Baconian Authorship introduction for people who are just beginning to ask the question about who wrote Shakespeare.

I suspect Dee had some role in the name "Shakespeare" as well. The Sonnets hint in several places that he may have be the director of Bacon's life, which Bacon was not so happy about. I feel Bacon's emotion in Sonnet 14.

Sonnet 14 which appears to be about Dee (and Dee = 14 Simple cipher):

NOt from the stars do I my iudgement plucke,
And yet me thinkes I haue Astronomy,
But not to tell of good,or euil lucke,
Of plagues,of dearths,or seasons quallity,
Nor can I fortune to breefe mynuits tell;
Pointing to each his thunder,raine and winde,
Or say with Princes if it shal go wel
By oft predict that I in heauen finde.
But from thine eies my knowledge I deriue,
And constant stars in them I read such art
As truth and beautie shal together thriue
If from thy selfe,to store thou wouldst conuert:
    Or else of thee this I prognosticate,
    Thy end is Truthes and Beauties doome and date.

Even the name "Francis Bacon" could have been given by Dee, to Elizabeth. Bacon did live his life and run with the cards he was dealt, but his frustration appears in his Sonnets auto-biography.

Secret Baconian-Rosicrucian Methods of Delivery.

Another very instructive Book of Emblems is ETHICO-POLITICA EMBLEMATA by Johann Kreihing and Jacob van Meurs, published in 1661.

https://archive.org/details/gri_33125010375166/page/n61/mode/2up

Here is my take on it.

1661 is a palindromic number and 16 + 61 = 77 that is the simple cipher of MINERVA the Spear-shaker, who was Francis Bacon's muse

and the origin of his pen name  "SHAKE-SPEARE"

The simple cipher of SHAKESPEARE is 103 , and in this Book of Emblems, the Emblem CIII (103) represents ... MINERVA , The Spear-Shaker and Cupid/EROS !

Notice the cross on top of the helmet of Minerva. Knowing that EROS is the anagram of ROSE, I think that the ROSE-CROSS is here in disguise.

Moreover , we are on the page 143  and  143 is the simple cipher of QUEEN ELIZABETH.

                                                                                      image.png.5998ea19414830a4b2b5264b4d4df207.png

Now, if SHAKESPEARE = 103 , WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE = 177.

                                                                                         image.png.7ff5c00e7a485546ebee0a6bcb64166a.png

The book is written in Latin and CXXI (121) is precisely the simple cipher of FRANCISCI BACONI (The latinized name of Francis Bacon)

The mystery of Shake-speare's true identity is solved !

But that's not all.

A floor black and white checkerboard appears on four Emblems.

                                     image.png.404e20b770708c5e86f0bbae4d76fdb2.png                   image.png.d02629b36131581f0f780d1a14e46dfe.png

This is the same principle than in Minerva Britanna with 33 = BACON and 33+34 = 67 = FRANCIS.

The Emblem on page 33 depicts two wrestlers, who are a reference to POLLUX one of the two divine Twins (Castor and Pollux).

The statue is a reference to Athena Parthenos but here she wears a hat and holds a laurel wreath in one hand and in the other hand ... 

a SPEAR-SHAKER standing on the GLOBE !

The Emblem on page 34 depicts different characters, each of them with a jester's hat. Notice the soldier (a spear shaker) on the right , with the boots of an actor ...

a reference to William Shaksper, the actor !

 

                                     image.png.45b17d031b9b16a01a23911b24958c89.png                 image.png.560c7b3bfd5122931c986eb346b71f1c.png

Finally , the Emblem CL (150) makes a reference to JUPITER and JANUS.

And in the Emblem CLIII (153) the Painter point to the painting of a Hog and right above his staff we can see a painting of  ... BACON !

By the way , 150 + 153 = 303 😉

BINGO!

I've never seen nor heard of those emblems, but every book of emblems that I have heard of and looked at held secrets.

Fascinating!

In our collective work, "Emblems" may need a special focus. I have some to share as well, and enjoy discovering new ones which is almost as fruitful as finding anagrams, acrostic, gematria ciphers, and often they mix. 😉

Emblem CLVII (157), what does "nos quoque floruimus" mean?

Emblem CLVII (157), what does "nos quoque floruimus" mean?

 

It is a line from TRISTIA written by the poet OVID.

"NOS QUOQUE FLORUIMUS, SED FLOS ERAT ILLE CADUCUS, FLAMMAQUE DE STIPULA NOSTRA BREVISQUE "

“I too had my day, but that day was fleeting; my fire was but a straw and short-lived.”

Regardind the number 157 , you should take a look at the Emblem CX (110) on page 157, which (I believe) is connected with the Emblem XLVIII(48) on page 60.

 

                                                                                                      image.png.3c5d4b5b91966134b1d890a75fd96a61.png

We can see here three characters. One of them is BACON showing us a WHEEL ( WILL ) in the background, near a cubique structure.

ALL IS NUMBER  - we have 3 characters , the circle that represents the number 1 and the cubique structure that represents the number 4.

314 is the number Pi and also the simple count of  FRATERNITY OF THE ROSI CROSSE.

And here is the Emblem CX (110) on page 157, that represents ... A WHEEL ( WILL ) ! 

                                                                                                                           Perseverandum

                                                                                                                       ( We will persevere )

                                                                                                 image.png.b7844ec655e98acc1c70bfdf318e8dcd.png

 

                                                                                                              PER SEDULUS BACON IN MEDIO

                                                                                                          (By the industrious Bacon in the midst)

 

And you know what ? CX (110) + XLVIII (48) = CLVIII (158) and 158 is the simple cipher of ELIZABETH TUDOR ! 🙂

And I like the idea that  C(3) + L(11) + V(20) + I(9) + I(9) + I(9)  = 61 the simple cipher of JANUS !

Finally, there is also a connection with "Mathematical Magicks".

"NOS QUOQUE FLORUIMUS, SED FLOS ERAT ILLE CADUCUS, FLAMMAQUE DE STIPULA NOSTRA BREVISQUE " is more exactly a line from TRISTIA Book V Elegy VIII.

I believe that this choice was deliberate, and is a reference to the most important Book of Emblems of all time : THE TAROT !

 

                                                 image.png.856b93e80a6a10f824247aca186d01b3.png

 

                                                         FRANCIS BACON ( IUSTICE - VIII - 53) TRANSFORMING (ARCANE XIII) THE WORLD ( LE MONDE - XXI)

                                                                                                                                 VIII + XIII = XXI

The next Emblem ( CLVIII - 158) seems to give credit to this idea .

                                                                                                       image.png.69812c8654a21635b84f53dbd546ef63.png

                                                                                                                          Sic transit gloria mundi 

                                                                                                               "Thus passes the glory of the world."

The mural at the White Hart Hotel, used by Bacon as a Rosicrucian Lodge in the seventeenth century, situated on the edge of his Gorhambury estate in St Albans, depicts the death of Adonis from his Shakespeare poem Venus and Adonis. https://sirbacon.org/links/bokenham.html

The little known eight Shakespeare Quartos discovered at Francis Bacon's Gorhambury estate.

In 1909 eight Shakespeare quartos were discovered at Gorhambury most likely transferred from Bacon’s personal library in the old Gorhambury House, which were placed for safe-keeping into the care of Bodleian Library, where they still remain to the present day. Could you just imagine the headlines around the world if eight Shakespeare quartos were discovered in the house of Shakspere of Stratford or one of his relatives or descendants!  

[Jean Overton Fuller, Francis Bacon A Biography (London and The Hague: East-West Publications, 1981), p. 362. Lawrence Gerald, ‘The Discovery of Eight Shakespeare Quartos in Bacon’s Library’, available at https://sirbacon.org/eightquartos.html to whom we are indebted for their reproduction]

  FROM the besieged Ardea all in post,
      Borne by the trustlesse wings of false desire,
      Lust-breathed TARQVIN, leaues the Roman host,
And to Colatium beares the lightlesse fire,
VVhich in pale embers hid, lurkes to aspire,

Hap'ly  that name of chast, vnhap'ly set
This batelesse edge on his keene appetite:
When COLATINE vnwisely did not let,
To praise the cleare vnmatched red and white,
Which triumpht in that skie of his delight:
Where mortal stars as bright as heauēs Beauties,
With pure aspects did him peculiar dueties.

Curious on the spelling of "M. William Shak-speare".

https://sirbacon.org/graphics/lear.gif

M W = 33 Simple cipher.

WILLIAM SHAK is 111 Simple cipher, same as the Kay cipher for BACON.

SHAK is S=18, H=8, A= 1 and K=10 so 188110

I mentioned those numbers in relation to "time", but they are also in the letter "F" row in this table key:

image.thumb.png.4dbdf2226f95addbbe7ed9bdc8a9ab2d.png

Just a curious spelling I think.

Great work Yann! As you know, 'Sub Umbra Alarum Tuarum' (Under The shadow Of Thy Wings) is the last line of the anonymous first Rosicrucian manifesto the Fama Fraternitatis (written by FB) and is alluded to in the frontispiece prefixed to The History of the Royal Society (1667) in which FB is sitting under the wings of the angel and aptly as here revealed by you present in his Shakespeare poem The Rape of Lucrece

Emblems...

OK, I need some education. 🙂

I love the old emblems, have a hard back copy of George Withers 1635 (facsimile) emblems which I like to have with me when I am not on my PC, just to look over and get/see new ideas. Today learned that William Marshall did the cover page image for the book I have which is beautiful and amazing.  The same Marshall we have kicked around today on another thread in this forum.

Emblems go way back, earlier than Shakespeare I believe, often are overt with images and easy to understand clues about what is going on at the time. Like underground comics back in the 60's.

How did they get away with it? Were they seen by only those who knew?

Bacon is in so many, with numbers that we know about today. Was it fun for him, or did it make him paranoid?

Even though I've seen and enjoyed these old "emblems" as long as I have been a Baconian, I really don't know the history about them. They were printed, but who had them? Was it a secret? How did they get away with it?

Beautiful Illustration !

I am not an expert.  I know that the Emblems were invented by Andrea Alciato who published his first book , Emblematum Liber, in 1531.

Here is a great site about Books of Emblems https://www.emblems.arts.gla.ac.uk/alciato/books.php?id=A31a.

I discovered ETHICO-POLITICA EMBLEMATA by Johann Kreihing "accidentally", thanks to Mystery of Francis Bacon by William T Smedley (1996) that mentionned some Books on Emblems, of which EMBLEMATA ETHICO POLITICA by J. Bornitius.

"THE WINGS HID F BACON  - SUB UMBRA ALARUM TUARUM - ( UNDER THE SHADOW OF THY WINGS )"

What does Shakespeare say?

Shakespeare - King Henry VIII, Act V, scene 1

Old Lady: I'll not come back; the tidings that I bring
    Will make my boldness manners. Now, good angels
    Fly o'er thy royal head, and shade thy person
    Under their blessed wings!

KING HENRY VIII: Now, by thy looks
    I guess thy message. Is the queen deliver'd?
    Say, ay; and of a boy.

image.thumb.png.9db3ef57c2ef33630981990ec08a2000.png

Early in the same scene, the word "secret":

LOVELL: My lord, I love you;
    And durst commend a secret to your ear
    Much weightier than this work
.
The queen's in labour,

In fact, from that "secret and counting it, there are 157 words in the script to the next time "secret" pops up:

    ...secret to your ear
    Much weightier than this work. The queen's in labour,
    They say, in great extremity; and fear'd
    She'll with the labour end.

GARDINER: The fruit she goes with
    I pray for heartily, that it may find
    Good time, and live: but for the stock, Sir Thomas,
    I wish it grubb'd up now.

LOVELL: Methinks I could
    Cry the amen; and yet my conscience says
    She's a good creature, and, sweet lady, does
    Deserve our better wishes.

GARDINER: But, sir, sir,
    Hear me, Sir Thomas: you're a gentleman
    Of mine own way; I know you wise, religious;
    And, let me tell you, it will ne'er be well,
    'Twill not, Sir Thomas Lovell, take't of me,
    Till Cranmer, Cromwell, her two hands, and she,
    Sleep in their graves.

LOVELL: Now, sir, you speak of two
    The most remark'd i' the kingdom. As for Cromwell,
    Beside that of the jewel house, is made master
    O' the rolls, and the king's secret
ary

And more, including acrostics and a reference to an Hundred Markes. We know FRANCIS BACON is 100 Simple cipher.

Wish I had more time to delve into it right now...

🙂

The Shephearde's Calender -By Edmund Spenser ( Really ? 🙂) 1579

IF THAT ANY ASKE THY NAME SAY :

I AM ALP TAW

( I AM The Beginning and the End , the Alpha and the Omega)

I AM F. BACON

I AM WILL TUDOR

I AM IMMERITO

 

 TITUS ANDRONICUS (Act 4 - Scene 4)

  Tam. King, be thy thoughts imperious, like thy name.
Is the sunne dim'd, that Gnats do flie in it?
The Eagle suffers little Birds to sing,
And is not carefull what they meane thereby,
Knowing that with the shadow of his wings
He can at pleasure stint their melodie:
Even so mayest thou, the giddy men of Rome,
Then cheare thy spirit, for know, thou Emperour,
I will  enchaunt the old Andronicus
With words more sweet, and yet more dangerous,
Than baits to fish, or hony stalkes to sheepe,
When as the one is wounded with the baite,
The other rotted with delicious feed.
    King. But he will not entreat his Sonne for us.
    Tam. If Tamora entreat him, then he will,
For I can smooth and fill his aged eare,
With golden promises, that were his heart
Almost impregnable, his old eares deafe,
Yet should both eare and heart obey my tongue.
Goe thou before, be our Embassadour,
Say that the Emperour requests a parly
Of warlike Lucius, and appoint the meeting.
     King. Emillius, do this message Honourably:
And if he stand on Hostage for his safety
Bid him demaund what pledge will please him best.

                                   BACON

I am looking forward to reading more ! 🙂 

And talking about 100, the simple cipher of FRANCIS BACON ...

Hi Maestro Yann, all of the above is a sublime virtuoso performance that provides us with some insight into the breadth and depth of your reading, research and rare learning, as well as your unusual cerebral capacity to identify and illuminate all before you. Brilliant!

...the tydings that I bring
Will

More fun, the "C", then the first letters on the left:

Enter Olde Lady.
Gent. within. Come backe: what meane you?
Lady. Ile not come backe, the tydings that I bring
Will make my boldnesse, manners. Now good Angels
Fly o're thy Royall head, and shade thy person
Vnder their blessed wings.
King. Now by thy lookes
I gesse thy Message. Is the Queene deliuer'd?
Say I, and of a boy.
Lady. I, I my Liege,
And of a louely Boy: the God of heauen
Both now, and euer blesse her: 'Tis a Gyrle
Promises Boyes heereafter. Sir, your Queen
Desires your Visitation, and to be
Acquainted with this stranger; 'tis as like you,
As Cherry, is to Cherry.

C Will F V I S An Bot Pro D

Anagram: F Bacon is P Will Tudor

Francis Bacon is Prince Will Tudor, "in the shade under the blessed wings."

Hi Maestro Yann, all of the above is a sublime virtuoso performance that provides us with some insight into the breadth and depth of your reading, research and rare learning, as well as your unusual cerebral capacity to identify and illuminate all before you. Brilliant!  

Thank you A. Phoenix ! Your kind words move me enormously.

There is a lot of  discoveries that I'm looking forward to sharing with you on this incredible board, some discoveries that I made few years ago, some others that I made very recently thanks to this marvellous forum and the great minds who share, here, their knowledge and their passion !

I LOVE this collaborative work ! And LOVE is the key ! Thank you again.

I too am thrilled with your work! For too many years I felt alone in my world, sometimes feeling as if I were the only one who could see like I do. Now I know better, and not only do you see like I do, you have a much wider range of knowledge. Thank you!!!!!
