Uncanny modern parallels with 19th century books about ‘Baron Trump’ have a lot of folks on edge

Talk about bizarre.

A 19th century lawyer who authored children’s books on the side wrote a book titled, “Baron Trump’s Marvellous Underground Journey,” that has uncanny similarities with the present day.

Calling to mind President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, the author featured a character named Baron Trump and wrote about Castle Trump and a visit to Russia.


A man named “Don,” who is described as “the master of all masters,” provides Baron Trump with guidance and direction.

In 1896, Ingersoll Lockwood also produced an ominously titled pamphlet, The Last President, which describes a “state of uproar” following the election of an unpopular outsider candidate.

The book seeming predicts the protests seen last year outside Trump Tower, which is located on 5th Ave.

“The Fifth Avenue Hotel will be the first to feel the fury of the mob,” Lockwood wrote over a century ago.

More on the spooky parallels from Newsweek:

Trump, an aristocratically wealthy young man living in Castle Trump, is the protagonist of Lockwood’s first two fictional novels, The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar and Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey. The little boy, who has an unending imagination and “a very active brain,” is bored of the luxurious lifestyle he has grown so accustomed to. In a twist of fate, Trump visits Russia to embark on an extraordinary adventure that will shape the rest of his life.



All of which has conspiracy theorists suggesting either Lockwood could see into the future or that, according to the Huffington Post, the Trumps, through the president’s uncle, engineer John Trump, have learned how to manipulate time.

John Trump reportedly had access to the papers of Nikola Tesla, who was researching time travel and, according to conspiracy theorists, was able to assist Donald Trump in winning the 2016 presidential election, Huffington Post noted.

Snopes does its best to take the fun away, noting that the name Baron is a depiction of the character’s title, who is a baron. The mention of 5th Ave. is also dismissed as more of a coincidence, with Snopes saying it has long been a well-known part of the city that featured  high-end restaurants, shops and hotels.

Finally, the character Don Fum, a “learned Spaniard,” is explained, with “Don” being a Spanish honorific for “Mr.”

Nevertheless, the similarities are remarkable. Perhaps the Trump family knows of the books and draws from them… or maybe they really have solved the mysteries of time travel and are keeping the secret all to themselves.

…which would explain the perplexing decisions by Trump that critics swear will be his downfall, yet every time he lands on his feet.
