Solomon's lesser key - 72 Demon Lords - Who are the legions?

Post by MikesWonderland »

Good day.

I hope this topic found the right forum.

I am trying to work something out about the 72 demon lords described in "Salomon's lesser key".
My questions:
1) Who are the legions?
2) How are they structured?
3) Why are there up to 60+ for a single lord?
4) ...if there is 72 demon lords, do they all have their own legions or do they share their legions?
5) what marquis is serving what duke?
6) what duke is serving what king
7) who is Furcas serving?
8) what is the chain of command for the president?

Any link to a source or any ideas are much appreciated and welcomed.

Thank you!
Mike

Not sure if there are any Solomonic Magi here on the forum. Esoterica has some good historical videos on the topic, that may give a bit of context too your questions. Jake Stratton Kent has released a few texts that explore Solomonic magick and other related systems (Goetia). Rufus Opus has also published some books on the topic.

Np. Additionally, I forgot to mention Aaron Leitch. I recall him being quite involved in the discussion off Solomonic magick and has put out several texts on Grimoiric and Angelic Magick. A length article....still working my way through:

Sadly....in my research....I've just discovered that Jake Stratton Kent...after a long battle with illness, has passed away. On January 17, he passed into the ethereal. I'll light a candle fo him tonight. His contributions to occult praxis....by all accounts....were immense and he will be missed.

I am sorry to read about his passing.

The link which you have shared goes into great detail.
Now I ended up with more questions, lol.

btw, I have bought the book "Solomon's lesser Key" by Aleister Crowley and the book "Pseudomonarchia Daemonum" by Johann Weyer.
Apparently these two books are amongst the "must reads".

I am trying to base an animation short movie which is about a guy summoning a messenger of Astaroth, on this. Hence why I would like to see whether I can gather some information on who and how.
I don't want to fantasize something or add stuff which is inaccurate... Especially with the messenger, I am struggling to see whether this would be a position that actually exists within that realm. Since there are monarchy-like structures, I would assume that a messenger amongst the ranks must exist.

Somehow I am now at the Goetic Circle.

Grimoiric magick is a deep rabbit hole. If you want, summon Astaroth and ask him about the topic....will likely give you some original material....or you just won't notice anything. I've heard he is more approachable, than other Beings in the "demon" category.

haha, that would be a very accurate resource, indeed.
For the summoning ritual, I fear all I have for drawing the circle is a samurai sword (not sure whether that counts)... I also lack the two assistants.
My wife is Christian (she is strictly against summoning demons and alike), and my dog wont sit still... so, there goes that.

I guess I will stick to the reading only, for now
