Secret Circle of Tsar Paul I


“They cannot understand as yet that we are not fighting a political party but a sect of murderers of all contemporary spiritual culture.” These words are apparently attributed to Tsar Paul I, who reigned in Russia between 1796 and 1801. The popular image of Tsar Paul “as an unsavory, authoritarian lunatic was, it must be remembered, an image spread by those who murdered him and who tried to portray him in the most negative light possible to justify their heinous crime.” Tsar Paul, known as “Mad Paul”, was a monarchist reacting against the Jacobins and the horror of the French Revolution. He was elected Grand Master of the Knights of Malta in 1798. “It was his greatest wish to see Russia liberate Malta and restore the island to the Knights.” [1]

Lt. Colonel Michal Goleniewski of Poland was a top-ranking member of  the “Heckenschuetze” network – one of the most important allies ever gained and lost by the United States and composed of many anti-Communist Russians. In 1959, he became a triple-agent, giving Polish and Soviet secrets to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), which directly caused the exposure of Soviet spies. [2] “Heckenschuetze” is German for “sniper” or “sharpshooter”. The Heckenschuetze organization derived from a Russian group, the “Secret Circle”, begun under Mad Tsar Paul I in 1797. The Secret Circle began as a clandestine patriotic secret society with roots in the Russian Orthodox Church, the judiciary, the military, and the government bureaucracy. It became an anti-Bolshevik underground during the First World War and operated in intense secrecy during the dictatorship of Josef Stalin. [3] (Further background: Strange Case of Michael Goleniewski, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of August 10, 2014.)

Michal (Michael) Goleniewski (image) first approached the West after the failure of the Hungarian Revolt in 1956. Because Goleniewski knew that the CIA had been seriously infiltrated by Soviet moles, he and his organization decided to initiate contact with J. Edgar Hoover, longtime Director of the FBI. But Hoover was out of his depth on the subtleties involved: that contact had been made with him because the CIA could not be trusted. So J. Edgar Hoover glanced through the initial contact letter and decided it was a matter for CIA, not FBI. Hoover forwarded Goleniewski’s contact letter to the CIA. Thereafter, in subsequent letters, Goleniewski believed he was dealing directly with J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI. But Hoover was forwarding Goleniewski’s letters to CIA. And CIA was writing back to Goleniewski and signing the letters, “Hoover.” [3]

When Goleniewski finally defected in 1961, he was chagrined to discover he had been communicating for years not with the FBI but with the infiltrated CIA. And, for “more than three years, the CIA saw to it that not a line about Goleniewski appeared in the nation’s press. That was from January 12, 1961, the day he landed in Washington aboard a Military Air Transport plane, to March 4, 1964, the day the first story about him appeared in a newspaper, the New York Journal-American.” [3]

There is a Knights of Malta connection pervading the Secret Circle/Heckenschuetze apparatus. Tsar Paul I had been Grand Master of the order. The Dowager Tsarina Marie, mother of Tsar Nicholas II, in 1919 was evacuated from Crimea onboard the British vessel Marlborough. The ship made a stop at Malta where Her Majesty told British Naval lieutenant Robert Ingram that she knew that Nicholas II had escaped the supposed mass execution at Ekaterinburg in July 1918. Ingram wrote down an account of his conversation with the Dowager Empress which was found years later in the archives of the Knights of Malta. [3]

Also connecting with the Knights of Malta was one Kyril de Shishmarev, a childhood playmate of the Tsarevich Alexei Romanov, the son of Tsar Nicholas II. Kyril de Shishmarev later admitted belonging to the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, i.e., the Knights of Malta. Furthermore, de Shishmarev had no doubt that Michel Goleniewski, with whom he later renewed friendship, was in fact the Tsarevich Alexei! Goleniewski himself had insisted to CIA that he was the surviving son of the Tsar. As of 1970 at least, the U.S. State Department had a secret “Romanov file” which had not yet been declassified. [3]
