Even today in 2017 people still keep repeating the fake facts about Marie Dénarnaud – and that includes the French, who are equally guilty of suppressing real facts to promote rubbish claims.

It all began with Noël Corbu during the late 1950s, followed by Pierre Plantard and Philippe de Chérisey during the 1960s and then of course by Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln in their 1982 fatal tome of disinformation, The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail.

Marie Dénarnaud lived a life of abject poverty between 1917-1946 and accumulated debts totalling over 31,000 francs until they were eventually settled by Noël Corbu.

The stories about Marie Dénarnaud “Walking on Gold” were always blatant lies.

But these stories lined the pockets of many authors as well as profiteering the Rennes-le-Château Tourist Industry (which they still do, today).
