“The family may have moved from Savoy to Walldorf, Germany. Although it is not a certainty, the best explanation from the available clues indicates that Walldorf’s coven had some important personages in the witchcraft/satanic system and that Johann Astor’s family had power. At that time in Europe, the Astor family had no chance to turn their occult power into success. The power and class structure in Europe was rigid and gridlocked. The boundaries between peasant and aristocracy were solidly in place. So the family looked to the New World to transmute their position in the Satanic hierarchy into financial wealth and power. Johann Astor in Walldorf was only a butcher. His best son John Jacob (1763-1848) was selected to establish the House of Astor in America.”
