The BirthMark of Cain
(Sources: Multiple Creative Commons) - Revelation 19:16 – On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
From the beginning of Biblical time, the “allegorical” story of Cain and Able has been known as one of the greatest tales ever told. It was in this story where we learn that Cain killed his brother Able and for his sin, The Lord had given set a mark upon him that is known as the Mark of Cain. Many different stories, tales, interpretations and symbols have been passed down to us by great learned men throughout history.
Let us begin with the fourth chapter of the Book of Genesis where we learn about the curse of Cain.
The story is about two brothers, Cain and Abel. Cain is the older brother who, “was a tiller of the ground”, and his younger bro Abel “was a keeper of sheep” (Gen. 4:2). I would like to first point out to you their “trades” because this is very important in being able to understand the true meaning behind the beginning of this story.
You see, Cain had the least desirable job of the two brothers. He was simply a tiller of the ground or what we call these days a “laborer” with a very undesirable job. Please think about this more with me.
Cain had to till the hard clay ground all day long in order to make the desert floor suitable for growing fruits and vegetables while his younger brother Abel had the kick back job of managing the sheep without ever really getting his hands dirty. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t be too happy if I had to dig holes in the hard ground under the hot sun all my life and then my younger brother who was born after me gets the easy job with little to no labor as keeper of sheep.
Next we read that Cain was proud and displeased God. The brothers performed a sacrifice to God; Abel of his sheep and lambs, Cain of his fruit and corn, God accepted Abel’s offering but refused Cain’s. At that Cain’s face fell; and later when he and his brother Abel were alone in the field, he killed him and Cain split the blood of his brother Abel upon the earth, and the blood of Abel streamed upon the earth before the flock.. He then buried the body, thinking that no one would find out about the murder.
“What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” (Gen. 4:10–12)
Now Cain’s primary vocation of cultivating crops was no longer an option for him to earn a living. When he complained to God that the curse was too strong, and that anyone who found him would kill him, God responded, “Not so; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over”, and God “set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him” (Gen. 4:15).
This one Bible verse, “Not so; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over”, and God “set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him” Genesis 4:15 has puzzled historians for centuries.
What exactly is this Mark that was set upon Cain?
- A. Was it a tattoo of a cross or some other artificial marking put upon Cain?
- B. Could it be a curse that he would have to carry with him as a wanderer of the earth for his sins?
- C. Maybe it was a marking on his skin that his descendants would also be born with. Hence, a birthmark signifying they are descendants of the allegorical story of the fable of Cain that is based on some hidden truth or meaning concealed in the above said story?
The “Mark” is a birthmark signifying they are descendants of the allegorical story of the fable of Cain. A Birthmark that a certain blood line whose allegorical genealogy is written and also concealed in mystery throughout the Old and New Testaments. A royal family whose descendants bore a special birthmark throughout Biblical days and the beginning of this 6th age that we are in now.
You see, I will prove below that Cains descendants may see that the mark of the Lord is the impress of some spiritual excellence, distinguishing the characters of those of whom it is predicated. You will find that throughout history that the mark of the intelligent is the strength of their knowledge: and these marks are the gifts of Lord.
Here we need to understand the importance by observing the fact that the mark set upon Cain was the mark of the Lord. It is distinctly written that the Lord set a mark upon him. It was a mark, not to indicate a curse, but to distinguish for preservation. This paramount in understanding the significance in the hidden meaning of this mark which I have stated above is really a birthmark that is bestowed on certain descendants of a Biblical Royal family. The Mark set upon him was to preserve Cain and his blood line. Not to destroy him or his kin for his murder was the first killing of another human and also the first and quite possibly the only forgiven homicide known to mankind. These for we know without a doubt that the Lord thought he was special enough to forgive and only set a mark upon him and his future descendants.
Back in ancient days, there was no means to perform any type of scientific DNA testing or blood analysis to determine 100% a person’s ancestry. With no means to test blood, they had to invent ways to properly identify long lost family or even immediate family. Taking someone’s word or quite possibly even a deceiving women bearing a royal child who would become a King or Pope just for their word was not the wisest things to do when so much was at stake over the last 2,000 plus years. Therefore, the Birthmark will play a central role throughout recorded history in the 6th age.
If you study history up until even now, you will find the primary method to determine a persons family was by their Birthmarks. These Birthmarks tend to occur often in the same family line and often, these Birthmarks will occur in the same body parts as a previous ancestor. Hence, this was a common practice for our ancestors who will find often used them for much more than identification. Just as it is common today to identify the diseased by birthmarks, tattoos and other various markings on the body.
Below I have included quotes from various Historians from our ancient past like the great Plutarch and Plato. Also more modern day Holy Grail Historians such as Philip Gardner and Mark Amaru Pinkham.
“as the warts and birth-stains and freckles of fathers, not appearing in their own children, crop out again in the children of their sons and daughters; as a certain Greek woman, giving birth to a black child, when accused, of adultery, discovered that she was descended in the fourth generation from an Aethiopian; as among the children of Pytho the Nisibian, said to belong to the Sparti,1 the one who died lately bore the impress of a spear on his body, — a race-mark after so many ages rising and emerging as from the depths of the sea, — so not infrequently earlier generations conceal and merge ancestral habits and dispositions, while afterward and through later generations the inherited nature comes to flower, and reproduces the family tendency to vice or to virtue.
The armed men that sprang from the teeth of the dragon sown by Cadmus, from whom the oldest families in Thebes — a large part of the Boeotian aristocracy — were said to have descended. Something like this mythical birthmark had probably made its appearance on the body of a member of one of these ancient families. Nisibis was a Syrian city with an extensive commerce, with many Greek, and probably some Boeotian immigrants.
It may be that, in cases where the inheritance of a morbid physical constitution, or of proclivity to moral evil, seems to lapse in the first generation and to reappear in the second, the children of the diseased or depraved father have the physical or moral traits of their father, but are made and kept vigilant and faithful in self-care and self-discipline by the memory of their father’s infirmities or sins ; while their children have the inheritance without the warning.”
* Plato, Laws 728 A. 2 Horace, Epistles 1. 1. 106. 3 One shoulder was white as ivory;
“The Sparti, sprung from the dragon’s teeth sown by Cadmus. Just so no good man who imparts his goodness to another was ever thought to have less virtue by as much as he had bestowed. So divine and excellent is that possession, and most true is the saying of the Athenian stranger, whoever that inspired man may have been: “All the gold beneath the earth and above ground is too little to give in exchange for virtue.” 1 Let us therefore now boldly call its possessor wealthy, yes and I should say well-born also, and the only king among them all, if anyone agree to this. For as noble birth is better than a lowly pedigree, so virtue is better than a character not in all respects admirable. And let no one say that this statement is contentious and too strong, judging by the ordinary use of words. For the multitude are wont to say that the sons of those who have long been rich are well-born. And yet is it not extraordinary that a cook or cobbler, yes, by Zeus, or some potter who has got money together by his craft, or by some other means, is not considered well-born nor is given that title by the many, whereas if this man’s son inherit his estate and hand it on to his sons, they begin to give themselves airs and compete on the score of noble birth with the Pelopids and the Heraclids?
Nay, even a man who is born of noble ancestors, but himself sinks down in the opposite scale of life, could not justly claim kinship with those ancestors, seeing that no one could be enrolled among the Pelopids who had not on his shoulder the birth-mark of that family.
And in Boeotia it was said that there was the impression of a spear on the Sown-men.”
In the book, “A Companion to Families in the Greek and Roman Worlds,” By Beryl Rawson, she had this to say about Seleucos, founder of the Secloid Dynasty, “Some families are thus characterized by birthmarks which are passed on generation after generation and used to prove one’s descent and share of particular qualities. According to several sources, Justin among them (15.4.3–9)
Philip Gardner in his book Secrets of the Serpent, in Search of the Sacred Past said this in regards to the birthmark and Templar the Mark of Cain and the Templar’s croix pattee:
And St. Paul himself in Galatians 6: 17 states, “Let no-one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.” Is this the original mark of Cain, who we have found to be of the serpent tribe? The idea of this sign or mark is widespread once discovered.
“Whether a strict Latin or a Templar croix pattee, it is a memorable symbol, especially seen on a stark white background. Seen in relation to the ‘mark’of Cain or the Merovingian birth-mark, or even the Templar cross, they all seemingly relate one way or another to the snake.”
Mark Amaru Pinkham in his books the “Guardians Of The Holy Grail: The Knights Templar, John The Baptist and “The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom” said – Cain thus appears to be a name for the first Fisher King as Vulcan-Lucifer. Gardner claims that it was Cain’s infamous Mark that became the definitive symbol of the planetary lineage of Fisher Kings, so he was at least one of the founders of the lineage.
Volcan or Vulcan eventually found his way into the Hebrew pantheon as Vel’cain or Cain (meaning “smith” and “possessor of fire”) and as Lucifer or Azzazel, the “fallen angel” from Heaven, who taught the daughters of men the art of smithing.
“The Merovingian link to Vulcan-Lucifer was also implicit in a curious royal birthmark in the shape of a red cross, the ancient Mark of Cain, which a Merovingian was said to proudly display over his heart or between the shoulder blades.”
In order to discover the hidden mysteries of the Bible in order to attempt to decipher the allegorical meanings of stories, you must first research the meanings of names. In this case, we will locate the meanings of the main characters of the story. Cain and Able. Since I am writing about mainly Cain, we will keep most our focus on this brother.
- Abel = [man who is like] breath
- Scoto-Cellie = Cain, white
- Cain (or qayin in Hebrew, meaning spear),
- Assyrian, Kenu and means eldest
The word “Cain” means “white”, “spear” or “oldest” in the three primary languages spoken during Biblical Old and New Testament times. This is where I have focused my work and have found many similar “marks” or in all actuality “Birthmarks” on some very famous men throughout written history. A Birthmark that is often described as white, spear or cross shaped. In fact, I have found so many occurrences of these birthmarks that it is beyond a coincidence. What I also have discovered is that there are many stories told in various cultures and languages over the ancient past where the mythical birth mark plays a central role in these famous tales.
Stories like that of Pythagaras where one of the only physical characteristics that has been passed down over the centuries by ancient authors to that of his golden birthmark on his thigh. The Arch-Druids Lost Son was said to have a golden birthmark and there were signs of the Celtic Sun God. Then we have the famous 6th or 7th century tale of King Arthur who it is said to have been born with a birthmark that helped determine his royal status and then subsequent rise to fame. We also have the prophet Mohammad whose birthmark were said to be signs that he was the chosen one of prophecy.
These stories were passed down by our ancestors to us to provide what I feel are easy clues to their future children to understand who these special “chosen ones” were in fact “marked” with a special birthmarks that in ancient times, had a tremendous importance to the brotherhood. One that we must honor as truth for our ancestors by ceasing to speculate about such stories or let modern day conspiracies dishonor the great work they have done for us.
I do not claim to be anyone special, but let me inform you that I do in fact have the Mark of Cain, AKA a white birthmark as well in the shape of a spear on my thigh. Hence, I AM descendant of these great men and have been lead to the truth via my internal intuition because it is built into my DNA for my ancestors were some of the greatest men who ever lived.
Do you have a have a birthmark or even a rare white birthmark? If so, you too may be related to these men below.

Other Notable Mentions of the Birthmark:
- In the legend of Valentin and Namelos (VN) both Valentine and Namelos are born with a cross between the shoulders
- Pope Andrea De Monti Had a Birthmark on His Face
- James II (known as Fiery Face because of a large birthmark)
Here is some more research below to further solidify the fact that the Birthmark has been a main symbol for the brotherhood for over tow thousand years now.
SIMEON THE GREAT – Version, takes the place of Simeon the Great as parent of the pope. The Spanish legend lays the scene at Barcelona, and makes Solomon ben Adret, the great rabbi, the father of the kidnapped child, who, being stolen by a priest, is educated in a monastery and in later years is elevated to the apostolic throne. On a certain occasion Solomon b. Adret heads a delegation to the papal court, when a birthmark on the pope’s face reminds him of his lost son and causes him to burst out weeping. The pope insists upon being told the cause of this sudden emotion, which, when refusal becomes impossible, Solomon discloses. Somewhat agitated by this, the pontiff at once examines the monk who had reared him in the belief that he was the. scion of a noble family exterminated in a family feud, and at length extorts the truth from him. The monk is imprisoned, or even executed, for his pains; while the last doubts of the pope as to his identity are set aside when Solomon, at his request, visits him again in the evening. His father convinces him without difficulty of the truth of the Jewish religion, and the pope determines to renounce Christianity. In order to avert suspicion, however, he waits six months, whereupon he bids his servants build a pyre in the market-place, delivers to a concourse of people a tirade against Christianity, and leaps into the flames. And, as the legend adds, even to this day they call him ” the insane and heretical pope.” – The Jewish encyclopedia: a descriptive record of the history …, Volume 1 By Isidore Singer, Cyrus Adler
MARK OF CAIN – Those that carry the mark of Cain are actually spiritually and morally above the herd, and they will always be . Associated with apocalyptic thought and literature, such as the Book of Daniel and the Apocalypse of John.
SPARTOI (the sown) – The Sparti, sprung from the dragon’s teeth sown by Cadmus – Plato
STARS INTRODUCED BY CARCINUS IN HIS THYESTES: The stars were hereditary birthmarks on the descendents of Pelops, including Thyestes. There were two tragedians named Carcinus, grandfather and grandson.
PEOLOPS – Thus in OL i. he deals with the story of Pelops, son of Tantalos. Legend told how Tantalos invited the gods to a banquet at which he served up to them his son Pelops. The gods did not partake of the flesh, save only Demeter, who ate a portion of his shoulder, which was afterwards replaced by a piece of ivory. This story Pindar rejects. It is a mere invention of the envious neighbours to account for the supernatural carrying off of Pelops by Poseidon; the ivory shoulder (referring probably to some family birthmark) was congenital: be had it even ‘ when Klotho took him from the basin of purification’
(1. 26) the bath of purification, not a Medea-cauldron in which, Pelias-like, the membra disjecta of the boy were cooked Into a new life.
SECULOUS – Subsequent to Alexander’s death in 323 Bc, Seleucus founded, in 312 BC the kingdom of Syria, which was transmitted to a long series of his descendants, each of whom in turn is said to have borne a similar birthmark. Seleucus had a birthmark shaped like an anchor. It was told that Seleucus’ sons and grandsons also had similar birthmarks. The original Christian church of the first century used a sea anchor as its first symbol. I have noticed this “anchor” actually to be an ankh (eternal life) over a crescent moon, or Venus/Aphrodite, who is coming ashore in her ark, her scallop shell.
PYTHAGORAS – When Pythagoras showed his golden thigh to the people of Croton in Italy they immediately declared that he was the god Apollo incarnate.
LUCIUS CORNELIUS SULLA – One of Marius’ former junior officers, Lucius Cornelius Sulla had a large birthmark on his face that the unkind said resembled mulberries with oatmeal
AUGUSTUS CAESAR- Augustus’ mother supposedly acquired a birthmark before getting pregnant. Augustus is said to have been covered with spots and to have had birthmarks ‘
ANTIGNE – Daughter of (Edlpus and Iocasta, who accompanied her blind father into exile. After his death in Attica she returns to Thebes, and, in defiance of her uncle Crgon’s prohibition, performs the last honours to her brother Polyneices, fallen in single fight with Etgocles, by strewing his body with dust. For this she is entombed alive in the family vault, and there hangs herself; and her betrothed, Hsemon. the son of Creon, stabs himself beside her corpse. Such is the version of Sophocles. Another tradition represents Antigone and Argeia, the widow of Polyneices, as secretly burning his body by night on the funeral pile of Eteocles. When seized by the guards, Creon hands her over to Hsemon for execution; but he hides her in a shepherd’s hut, and lives with her in secret wedlock. Their son, grown up and engaging in some funeral games at Thebes, is recognized by a birthmark peculiar to the family. To escape Creon’s vengeance, Hsemon kills both Antigone and himself. Antigone, daughter of Eurytlon and wife of Peleus (q.v.), hanged herself for grief at the supposed infidelity of her husband. - A dictionary of classical antiquities, mythology, religion, literature and art By Oskar Seyffert
CONALL CERNACH – ie ‘Conall the Wry-Necked’, according to a birth-mark
MEROVINGIANS – The Merovingians trace their kingly succession to the original Dragon King, which was Cain. The first King of the Messianic Dragon succession was the biblical ‘Cain (Kain)’, head of the Sumerian House of Kish. ‘Mark of Cain’.” The Dragon King was known as the King of Kings and his symbol, Draco, represented his succession through the Egyptian pharaohs, the Egyptian Therapeutae, the Qumran Essenes to the Merovingian kings of Europe.
“…Cymbeline was the ‘Pendragon’ of mainland Britain during Jesus’s lifetime. The Pendragon, or ‘Head Dragon of the Island’…was the King-of-Kings and ‘Guardian of the Celtic Isle’ (Laurence Gardner) – 612 (Part I)
The Merovingian kings were said to have had a certain birthmark that took the form of a Templar type red cross, either over the heart or between the shoulder blades
Tradition has the Garter knights wearing a characteristic eight- pointed star incorporated with a central red cross, which represents the Merovingian birthmark, historically adopted by the Templars and then later by the Priory of Zion
KING ARTHUR – Arthur’s name may be a form of the name of the Celtic sun-god Artaois (Artaius) since Arthur was born … in Celtic Mythology with a similar birthmark [representing sun-spots]. Arthur’s name is also a form of the Roman name
MOHAMMAD- The birthmark, or “seal,” of the prophet is mentioned in Ibn Ishaq’s eighth- century biography of Muhammad, known to us in the edition of Ibn Isham (d. 833), which is the oldest account of his life that we have. Mohammed’s personal appearance, as far as we are able to judge from Arabic tradition, was neither imposing nor pleasing, but inspiring. He was not above medium height, but was broad-shouldered and deep of chest; he was strongly and compactly built; head, large; brow, high; face, round and ruddy; mouth, large; nose, long and aquiline. His eyes, large, black and fiery, were full of his peculiar magnetic personal power. He wore his black hair long and curly and his beard remained unwhitened at his death. A large birthmark between his shoulders was looked upon as the holy mark of prophecy. His personality was strong and dominant, but his •domestic life was as simple as was his frugality at meals.
LAUNCELOT – Now this child, Launcelot; was dearer to Queen Helen than all the world besides, for he was not only large of limb but so extraordinarily beautiful of face that I do not believe an angel from Paradise could have been more beautiful than he. He had been born with a singular birth-mark upon his shoulder, which birth-mark had the appearance as of a golden star enstamped upon the skin; wherefore, because of this, the Queen would say: “Launcelot, by reason of that star upon thy shoulder I believe that thou shalt be the star of our house and that thou shalt shine with such remarkable glory that all the world shall behold thy lustre and shall marvel thereat for all time to come.” So the Queen took extraordinary delight in Launcelot and loved him to the very core of her heart–albeit she knew not, at the time she spake, how that prophecy of hers concerning the star was to fall so perfectly true.
SAINT ROCH – St. Roch was born in 1295 in answer to the prayers of his aged father and mother. He had a birthmark of a red cross on his body which neighboring palmists, clairvoyants and fortune-tellers solemnly declared to be a sign that he was sent from above as a special friend of God for work below to man. His parents died when he was twenty and left him a good estate, but he left it to the poor, and disguised as a pilgrim roamed to Rome. The plague of Black Death was stalking rough shod through Italy and St. Roch met him face to face at Aquapendente in Tuscany. All he had to do was to show his birthmark or make the sign of the cross and the plague vanished.
CHARLES VIII – Philip de Comines, a contemporary of the French King, describes him as lacking in intelligence, and as being capricious and easily influenced, while Guiccardini, also a contemporary, had a much better opinion of him. Charles was short of stature and short-necked, with a parrot-like nose of enormous dimensions, a fiery birth-mark around his left eye, and twelve toes on his feet, hidden in splayed shoes, which set the fashion in foot-gear for the end of the fifteenth century in Italy.
MIKHAIL GORBACHEV- He has a wine stain birthmark on his head
