Navigating the Site

4DBios is encyclopedic in its breadth and scope.
It has biographies on thousands of people in the creative and political realms, showing how they link up over the centuries.

Each biography stands alone and also connects with the one above and/or below it. All cover both the inner and outer lives of those described, along with life themes, and their current story lines.

This site literally takes biography into the 4th Dimension, Time, in order to show how we all probably operate here, using our most visible personalities and celebrities as examples of how and why all of us keep taking on lives on Earth.

Many of those lives are clustered together in loose families, to show how we often come back in groups, and follow very specific pathways geared towards our individual development.

The first section consists of a series of six brief discourses that give a general view of reincarnation. They are listed in order on the bottom of each webpage.

The last two discourses cover the mythical Kingdom of Camelot, first explaining it, and then showing how it appears again and again, seven times all told, in the last 1500 years.

The second section is a listing of all the people limned in these pages.
There are 10 lists all told, 2 horizontal and 8 vertical, and they are on the lefthand side of the navigation box at the end of each webpage.

They begin with the horizontal lists, which break down the various empires, kingdoms, and republics, over which the succeeding figures presided.

Ancient Kingdoms cover the 18th and 19th Dynasties of Ancient Egypt, the Achaemenid dynasty of Ancient Persia, the 7 kings of early Rome, the Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire and the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Modern EuroAmerica recounts the hereditary and elected leaders of France, England, Scotland, the United States and both pre and post-Soviet Russia.

If you link to the Lists webpage, which is on top of the lefthand navigation bar, it will tell you how to read both the horizontal and vertical lists.

There are 8 sets of vertical lists, with three covering political figures and five limning creative ones.


In order to find any specific person on these lists, use the Search or Find function and type in the name you are looking for. If the full name doesn’t show, try the last one.
The lists are easy to read, with the top listed life the most recent. In order to find the corresponding biography, click the link on the top of each separate page, and it will take you to the webpage where the biography appears. Then use the Search or Find function to zero in on the specific life.

The first set of lists is Camelot Royalty. It covers the Franklin Delano Roosevelt extended family, including his support group, the John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy extended family, the Robert Kennedy, Edward Kennedy and Theodore Roosevelt extended families, and the Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. and Jr. and Rose Kennedy extended families, along with the warriors, emperors and kings who have appeared with them in the annals of Rome, France, Scotland, England and the U.S.

Richard Nixon and his extended crew follow, along with several key generals and kings, as well as some of the mischiefmakers who have been part of his longtime entourage.

The last two extended households of the Camelots
cover Napoleon Bonaparte and his extended crew, which include both Nazis and Hollywoodians in the 20th century,
and Adolph Hitler and his boys in the bund,
whose unique and often violent presence has stretched out over the last couple of millennia.

The second set of lists are the Anglo-Americans, and they cover the kings and queens of England and Scotland, and U.S. presidents, as well as those who ran for the latter office but failed to achieve it, along with their extended families and support.

Many writers appear here, including, surprisingly, some of the Beats, as well as many of those associated with Bloomsbury in England, and other assorted best-selling authors.

In addition, key English prime ministers and the current royal family of England are explored, as well as the extended family of Abraham Lincoln down through the ages. The Bushes and Clintons and their extended crew are also covered, and the section concludes with the also-rans, including many who were involved in the 2008 presidential race.

The third and final section of the political personalities of power are the Euroroyals, and it covers the pharaohs, kings, queens, tsars and emperors of Egypt, Persia, Rome, the Holy Roman Empire, the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, France, England, Scotland and Russia.

These, too, are broken down into families and groupings, and extend all the way back to the 18th and 19th dynasties of ancient Egypt, where western civilization got its birth/start some 2500 years ago.

The Euroroyals begin with Mohandas Gandhi and his sword-swinging crew, showing how he gradually evolved from one of the most effective warrior/kings of ancient times to an apostle of non-violence, as an individual always slightly ahead of the curve of his/story.
Many members of his extended family, which are covered in both the first and second groupings, have gradually moved from west to east, and from Christian to Muslim, while remaining in the warrior realm, as adversaries of the West, while others have been its steadfast supporters.

The third Euroroyal grouping consists of the tricksters of this extended time period, ranging from Biblical to modern times. This crew has long been involved in playing with the minds of their contemporaries, through deceit, betrayal and manipulation, and serve as a counterfoiling force to the otherwise best laid plans of their more strait-laced peers.

The fourth Euroroyal grouping also extends back to Biblical times, but have come down to the present as our media moguls, transferring their sense of absolute power as pharaohs to the far slippier realm of electronic commercial enterprise.

The fifth Euroroyal grouping has both a longtime and contemporary connection with Israel, having been its kings in Roman times, and then detouring through middle Europe and the German states and kingdom of Poland, before returning in century 20 to become leaders of the resurrected state of the ancient Biblical kingdom of the Jews.

The sixth grouping are those who have identified strongly with France, and continue coming back as both leaders, and critics of their beloved homeland.

The seventh grouping are the capitalists, who have made finance their special province, while also traversing lands as diverse as ancient Egypt and the modern United States.

The eighth grouping are the Holy Roman emperors, a diverse crew that has come up through the German and Italian states, and have wound up in a variety of countries, including a surprising trio of Americans.

The ninth grouping is connected through both Muscovy of yore and Russia of today, with the former crew manifesting in 20th century South Africa, and the latter passing through France to grab the reins of post-Soviet Union Russia.

The tenth grouping are the communists of 20th century Russia, centered around Joseph Stalin and his extended family, who stretch all the way back to the Byzantine empire, as well as Marx and Engels, the primary theoreticians of the system they came to ham-handedly embody.

The eleventh grouping are families that focused their powerplaying in Asia, with a mix of Egyptian Pharaohs, Russian Dukes of Muscovy, Chinese emperors, Korean dictators and the extended Indira Gandhi family.

Euroroyals concludes with a handful of Muslim powerplayers, including several headline grabbers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, such as Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

As with all the lists, they are linked on the top of each page with their respective webpage of biographies.

The fourth through eighth set of lists covers many of the creative players of the last two millennia. Some families are involved, but most are grouped together through nationalities.

The fourth set of lists consists of hidden royalty who found show business a perfect way to express their ancient sense of king and queenship.

These begin with the MGM-Dreamworks crew, who extend back to the de’ Medici family of Renaissance Italy, and spread out into both the Holy Roman Empire and Tsarist Russia. Most of them became 20th and 21st century producers, easily transferring their previous sense of rule into moving and shaking the magical kingdom of Hollywood.

The second and third groupings center around the English throne, and those who became modern actors, media moguls and film producers, while bringing their longtime support crew along with them.

The fourth group are the two American Presidents who come from kingship, and passed through Hollywood either before or after their runs, and their longtime support crew.

The fifth and sixth groupings center around the throne of France, with the Pickford and Power families featured on the latter list.

The seventh grouping focuses on the throne of Spain, as well as its antecedent, the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, with many returning to their Spanish root in century 20, as reflection of their hidden past.

The eighth grouping covers both Broadway and Hollywood producers, with many former Swedish kings and queens among their number.

The ninth grouping returns to families, with the Fondas and the Sheens as an extended crew of royals, still very much involved as activists in the political realm.

The ninth and final grouping are a repeat crew of families, the Kembles, Redgraves, Boleyns, Booths and Barrymores, who continue to thead their way through the lives of each other.

The show business lists cover actors and actresses of the 20th and 21st century, and are divided by the decades in which they were born. Following them are those who have risen from the criminal realm, and the old Wild West, many of whom retain their familial connection to one another.

Following them are the martial artists, both generals and boxers from the 19th and early 20th century, who found show business an excellent vehicle to express their deep masculinity.

Show business ends with the comedians, with some following familial groupings, or longtime partnerships, and others continuing to struggle with the sadness and vitriolic humor that lies behind their laughing facades.

The ninth set of lists covers the writers of the last two millennia, and are broken down into various groupings based on country and genre.

The first set are a small crew who set the standard in Latin, Italian and English, and make up much of the basic canon of Western literature, along with several key Romantic figures, and a support group behind them all.

The second are some of the primary writers of the American canon.

The third are many of the major poets, with a focus on those writing in English.

The fourth and fifth are the playwrights and filmmakers of both Europe and the United States, with some stretching back to their Grecian antecedents.

The sixth are those who eventually made it to America in the 20th century from their English, Scottish and French roots.

The seventh are all-Americans, having spent at least two lives in the United States.

The eighth and ninth cover French and English writers, while the 10th is pan-European, with a focus on German and Russian scriveners.

The eleventh are the journalists and reformers who have been active in both England and the U.S., and the twelfth are the spiritual writers, including the holy four, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, responsible for the four gospels.

Like the writers, the artists are broken down into countries, with the first list compromising the major brushmasters of the Italian Renaissance and 19th and 20th century France.

The second covers Spanish, French and Italian artists, with a focus on several families, the Bellinis, and the Le Nains, as well as some of the more unusual personalities of those three countries.

The third are the Dutch and German, again with families limned, as well as notables working out of the traditions of those two countries.

The fourth are primarily English/American artists and filmmakers, with a few actors thrown in, as part of the Mount family.

The fifth are primarily English, with the Pre-Raphaelites featured, along with a further host of artists and filmmakers.

The sixth are all American filmmakers, and their artistic past life roots.

The seventh are architects, designers and a smattering of sculptors, while the eighth and final are cartoonists, illustrators and photographers.

Like the Writers and Aritists, the musicians are also broken down into countries and genres.

The first set are the crossover classicists, who moved from the orchestral to the pop realm. Both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and their Rossetti root are featured, as well as a host of other composers-turned-performers

The second are all German musicians, beginning with the extended Bach family, who have managed to stay loosely together down through the centuries, followed by the Scarlattis and their extended support crew, and ending with several thunderous composers, most of whom have gone on to become 20th century filmmakers.

The third grouping features Italian and Germans, several of whom also became noted filmmakers, as well as a host of pure performers on both the violin and piano.

The fourth set are the French/Russian and English/Americans, both performers and composers alike, most of whom stayed in the classical realm.

The fifth set are the jazz and hip/hop artists, with one genre seamlessly feeding into the next, along with their European root, and a focus on the Strauss family of waltz fame.

The sixth grouping is of American composers, while the seventh are those operating out of the old troubador tradition, who have all come into the 20th century as singer/songwriters.

The eighth and ninth are the singers, with some falling into the previous categories, and others pure entertainers.

All are linked at the top of their respective pages into the third and final section, the BIOGRAPHIES, which in turn, can be linked back to their respective lists, through the lists sections on the lefthand side of the navigational box on the bottom of the page.


On the righthand column of the navigational box on the bottom of each webpage is BIOGRAPHIES, which will link you to the biography page, which repeats all the biographical links of this page.


All these lives represent a small smattering of the major personalities of the last double millennium of Euro/America, and they will be periodically added to and updated, particularly if others are willing and have the ability to augment this ongoing project.

With a little help, everybody who was ever anybody can ultimately find their way onto these pages. Any suggestions, or disagreements with those selected can be addressed via e-mail:, and discussion groups are welcome, as well as alternate readings of the personalities of our time and times past.

While a lot of people in his’n’herstory are similar, all of these were selected by the emotional resonance of their lives, and the collective themes they were working on. There are other ways of linking people, but 4DBios is predicated on emotional connections and storyline themes.

This website is a way of getting a toehold into the fourth dimension, and opening it up for further exploration. This lists, conjectural discourses and bios open that mysterious doorway enough for others to go in far deeper, and are presented as possibilities, not carved-in-stone realities.

Deeper probings by those far more skilled at navigating the dimensions still awaits, but for the moment, this is a beginning, and what people do with it, as always on this extraordinary planet of both mystery and mastery, is nothing more and nothing less than their own ongoing process of choice.
