Gabriel Léon Marie Pierre de Montaigne de Poncins (3 November 1897 — 18 December 1975) was a French aristocrat, journalist and essayist, the author of a wide range of celebrated books exposing the subversive influences which are destroying Christian civilisation, including Jewish influence, Communism and Freemasonry. .


The de Poncins, are an ancient family, notable in the reign of King Louis XV who awarded them numerous positions and enoblements. The first Marquis and Vicomte, Jean Hector de Montaigne, Chevalier and Seigneur de Poncins, etc., was murdered by French Revolutionaries on October 4, 1793, aged 55.[1] The family seat was the Chateau de Palais, par Fleurs, in the Loire district of France, which today is open to the public. Léon de Poncin's father died in 1946 when he succeeded him.[2] Severely ill in 1975, he died the following year.

Activities and publications

The Vicomte authored from a traditional Catholic perspective. His anti-masonic, anti-communist and Judeo-critical works have been translated into several different languages, making him a prominent source in anti-New World Order discources. De Poncins is a key source on what has happened in the Catholic world following the Second Vatican Council; he spoke openly and forcefully about Jewish malfeasance, informing us about their activity at the Council as far back as the 1960s. Following the Second Vatican Council, he accused Jews and Masons of subverting the Church in an attempt to destroy it and turn it into an empty shell. He also wrote on the subject of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and one-world government, particularly in relation to the League of Nations (replaced by the United Nations).
