The Nine Unknown Men

According to occult lore, the Nine Unknown Men are a two millennia-old secret society founded by the Indian Emperor Asoka 273 BC. The legend of The Nine Unknown Men goes back to the time of the Emperor Asoka, who was the grandson of Chandragupta.

It is said that the Emperor Asoka once aware of the horrors of war, wished to forbid men ever to put their intelligence to evil uses.

Asoka founded the most powerful secret society on earth: that of the Nine Unknown Men.

Their numbers would be renewed by co-option, so as to preserve the secrecy of techniques handed down from ancient times.
