Hi Tanngrisnir,

we have now found many of the ARK/Epstein network at Blenhein Palace and with the Dukes of Marlborough, the Spencer-Churchill family. Blenheim Palace is the seat of the Dukes of Marlborough. It is not yet known why Blenheim Palace is described as a 'palace', when they are not royals.

Unfortunately this image is not very clear, but provides at least leads to follow.


Robert de Balkany (uncle of Paul Marshall's wife Sabine) as well as Arpad Busso, were BOTH at the funeral of the 11th Duke of Marlborough, along with 20 or so others of the ARK/Epstein network.

Here’s the list so far of those of the ARK/Epstein network at the funeral of the 11th Duke of Marlborough. GM=Ghislaine Maxwell, BB= Back Book.

Rolf Sachs ARK GM, Bunter Somerset BB, Dorrit Mousaieff BB GM, President of Iceland Olafur Radnar Grimsson GM, Lady Alexandra Spencer Churchill ARK, Lord Edward Spencer-Churchill ARK, Annabelle Neilson ARK, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece and wife ARK BB, Jamie Spencer-Churchill now the 12th Duke of Marlborough ARK, Arpad Busson ARK BB, Tim Jefferies ARK BB, Viscount and Viscountess Linley ARK BB, Lord Anthony Bamford BB, Nicholas Soames brother Rupert Soames BB, Debbie von Bismarck ARK BB, Lord Michael Cowdray's wife Marina BB and with ARK via Pearsons, Eduardo Teodorani-fabbri ARK BB, Wafic Said BB, Sir Rocco Forte BB, Sir Mark Weinberg BB, Robert de Balkany (uncle of Sabine Perrini de Balkany, wife of ARK founder Paul Marshall).

Some interesting quotes:

https://www.memoiresdeguerre.com/2014/10/duke-of-marlborough-obituary.html "Gladstone famously remarked: “There never was a Churchill from John of Marlborough that had either morals or principles”. "In recent generations, the “wicked” 8th Duke had sold off many of Blenheim’s treasures to pay for the Palace’s upkeep; the 9th Duke sold himself to the American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt, in one of the most unhappy and blatantly arranged marriages in history. Their son, the 10th Duke, was once described by Auberon Waugh as “one of the most richly absurd characters the English aristocracy ever produced, famous for his appalling rudeness, amazing tactlessness and quite extraordinary greed”."


All that will sound familiar to Edla, whose rather more modest upbringing in north Wales will have brought a similar objectivity to the goings-on at the Big House. ‘It’s not so much the family themselves, but those who surround them,’ I was told. ‘They’re not really real.’

Underground Blenheim Palace’s, Vanbrugh Bridge:


The French nursery rhyme « Mort et convoy de l'invincible Malbrough » which refers to the 1st Duke of Marlborough has a line in it: “His soul was seen to be stolen through the laurels.”

Recent research on this network indicates that founder of ARK, Paul Marshall, is married to the french

Sabine Perrini de Balkany, her mother Molly Perrini de Balkany, brother of Robert de Balkany, one of the wealthiest men in France.

Robert and Patrick de Balkany are possibly related. That's according to a (french) interview with Patrick Balkany. There's quite a lot on the internet about each of them.

Robert de Balkany has a wiki page in french, english translate option if you get there via a search engine. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Zellinger_de_Balkany

Paul Marshall's son is named for Aladar de Balkany, his great-grandfather.


Paul Marshall's daughter is also named for the Balkanys.
