Dating supposedly to 1890 in The US – The ''Thirteen Club'' was a private, philanthropic gathering of very wealthy and politically powerful Men – most of whom had attended The College of William and Mary, located in Williamsburg, Virginia. The secretive nature of ''The Club'' was as such that no one outside it's membership were even aware of it's existence. While described as a ''Gentleman's Club'' (which was a very common practice in many Countries for those influential enough to ''join''), many cite that it's Members were actually ''seeking out'' Supernatural power – similar to Alchemy and related. Tales of ''strange ritual and ceremonies'' were leaked all of the time. Even such practices as ''sacrifice and cannibalism'' were said to have happened. The Club is also linked to the wider tale of The Illuminati – that Worldwide secretive Group, bent of World Societal control, thru the manipulation of World Politics and related. At least (5) US Presidents were said to have been Members.
