*William John Warner (according to some sources also called count Louis Hamon), popularly known as ‘Cheiro’ (1866-1936) was an Irish astrologer and a colourful occult figure at the start of the 20th century. Cheiro, deviated from the word chiromancy, meaning palmistry. He was a self-described clairvoyant who learned palmistry, astrology and Chaldean numerology during his stay in India. He was celebrated as he used these learned methods for divination and made personal predictions for famous clients and to predict world events. (Source: Wikipedia).
He for example wrote about the Prince of Wales:
‘It wouldn’t surprise me if he would give up everything, including the crown, to be with the woman he loves’. He also predicted the return of the Jews to Palestine and that the country would again be named Israel.
