Treasures do not always consist of large treasures of gold or precious stones. A treasure may also be an extremely precious artifact, such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Longinus sword, or a small but very precious ring with magical powers.
Magic Ring of Solomon and “Solomon’s Key”
According to legends, the famous King Solomon had a very valuable gold ring. The ring was not only precious, but it was also magic. With it, Solomon could control spirits, but also demons. Of all its treasures, this ring is considered the most mystical.
It is said that one day the king lost the precious magic ring in the waters of the Jordan River. Solomon considered that the ring is lost forever until a fisherman came to him. He found the ring inside the body of a fish. It is said that the magical ring is buried alongside King Solomon’s body.
However, no one found the tomb of Solomon … yet! And the one who finds the ring will become the ruler of the world.
The legend of the talisman, or the Seal of King Solomon, received from Heaven, is the commonplace of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Solomon’s seal, whose base is on the earth and whose top touches the sky, symbolizes the harmony of opposites, the cosmic order, the movement of stars in their spheres, and the perpetual communication between the earth and the sky, between the elements of the air and the fire.
In this way, Solomon’s seal became an emblem of wisdom and superhuman governance through divine grace.
The “Solomon Key” may have inspired further works such as “Lemegeton,” also called “Solomon’s Minor Key“.
“Solomon’s Key” is the most famous or infamous of all magical texts, and has influenced many of Europe’s “grammars” of magical practice. It exists in different versions and languages and is traditionally attributed to King Solomon.
That luxurious monarch from the 10th century BC was renowned for his wisdom, and by legend he has acquired a formidable reputation as a magician master who has hired his legions of spirits to build the Temple in Jerusalem, obeying them with his Magic ring.
It is said that an angel was sent by God to bring to Solomon this magical ring, which gave him power over the demons who helped him in magic.
“Solomon’s key”, divided into two books, contains the conjurations and invocation of the call of the spirits of the dead (preferably in battle) and the spirits of hell (it is not known whether they are demons or punished souls, but it is understandable from the text, that those spirits are demons) and the protection of the conjuror (called exorcist in the book) by them and against an attempt to possess. There are curses to oblige spirits who hesitate to obey.
Ring of Atlanteans in Egypt
Howard Carter is the archaeologist who, in 1922, discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. At that time, everyone was surprised that the famous curse of the pharaoh’s grave did not affect the main archaeologist, while those in his suite were affected by the curse. It is said that Carter was protected from the curse because he had a ring found in Assuan, in the tomb of a priest named Jua.
The ring had various geometric figures, such as three straight lines and triangles. The figures on the ring were arranged in accordance with the principles of esoteric knowledge. The ring was meant to protect a person from dangers, curses, and black magic.
Today, the ring is known as the “ring of Ra” and is believed to have been originally designed by the people of Atlantis. According to the same theory, Egyptians are considered to be the descendants of Atlantis. As for the ring, an explanation of its power results from the radionic principles that may have positive or negative effects on the individual wearing it.
Love Ring of Charles the Great
Speaking that being influenced by the power of a magic ring, Emperor Charles the Great fell in love with a German woman. He loved her so much that she began to neglect her state affairs to be with her. However, one day, the woman died.
Charles the Great held the woman’s dead body and refused to bury her. One day, when Charles the Great was gone, Archbishop Turpin entered the Emperor’s Bedroom. There, he noticed a precious ring on the body that he took with him.
As soon as the ring was removed, the dead body began to rot. On the return of Charles the Great, all he found was a terrible smelly body. He buried the body, but another strange thing began to happen. Charles the Great began to be passionate about Archbishop Turpin. The Archbishop realized he was suspicious about the ring, so he took the ring and threw it into the lake.
According to the legend, Charles the Great fell in love with the lake, so he ordered that a magnificent palace be built near the lake. Thus Aix-la-Chapelle was born, where Charles the Great was buried at his death.
Magic Ring of Genghis Khan
Genghis Khan, the great Mongol ruler, knew how to take advantage of magic. In the 12th century, he reigned over the great Mongol Empire, and some believe that this is due to a powerful magic ring. The ring had a ruby inscribed with a magic symbol and was worn by both Genghis Khan and his nephew, Kublai Khan. He always wore the ring on his right hand, on his index finger.
The great ruler, the possessor of a precious treasure, wore on his right hand the one with which he stretched the string of the bow, a gold ring with a ruby, a great bloody stone. On it was a swastika, a holy symbol of prosperity, luck and peace, used in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Unfortunately, in the West, it is known as the emblem of the fascist and Nazi movement, but this sign was used thousands of years before Hitler took over.
Svastica belonged to the bronze age cult, and it appears in the countries where the Pelasgian breed, which we meet from its beginnings, and on the territory of Romania. Svastica is generally the hallmark of the Aryan races, and especially of the Thracians, from which the Romanian people are also drawn.
Anyway, it’s a strange coincidence that, at a distance of seven centuries, Genghis-Han and Hitler had the same distinctive sign-swastika.
But what happened to that famous Gingis Khan ring? Nobody knows, and yet there are many influential people in Asia who are still looking for it today. It is probably hidden from the eyes and hands of the avid of power and fame.
