Priory of Sion debunked
The Prieuré de Sion, translated from French as Priory of Sion, is a name given to multiple groups, both real and fictitious. The most notorious is a fringe fraternal organization, founded and dissolved in France in 1956 by Pierre Plantard. In the 1960s, Plantard created a fictitious history for that organization, describing it as a secret society founded in the Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1099, which preserves the bloodlines of the Merovingian dynasty. This myth was expanded upon and popularized by the 1982 controversial book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, and later claimed as factual in the preface of the 2003 conspiracy fiction novel The Da Vinci Code.

Maybe Plantard was lying when he said it was a hoax he created.

All of it may be a hoax - the clues in Poussin's paintings, the bizarre church in Rennes le Chateau, the curious activities of Berenger Sauniere etc etc - but what a great story...

I remember reading The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail years ago, and being blown away; a wonderful piece of writing and a great though perhaps flawed history lesson. It's a story which one wishes were true...
