Astrologer
    (November 1, 1866-October 8, 1936)
    Born in Dublin, Ireland
    Birth name was William John Warner
    Astrologer, numerologist and palm reader
    Wrote 'Cheiro's Book of Numbers,' 'Cheiro's Language of the Hand,' 'Cheiro's You and Your Star,' 'The Cheiro Book of Fate and Fortune,' 'Cheiro's Book of World Predictions' and 'Cheiro's Memoirs'
    Name pronounced 'ki-ro'
    He took his name from cheiromancy, a fancy word for 'palm reading.'
    When not going by a pretentious single name, he called himself Count Louis Harmon.
    During a trip to Russia, he and Rasputin tried to hypnotize each other. (It ended in a draw.)
    He reportedly used his hypnotic powers to seduce many married women, with his name appearing frequently in divorce court proceedings.
    He settled in Hollywood to become a screenwriter without success.
    His wife claimed that the day before his death, he predicted the exact hour he would die, which would be a bit more impressive if we had anything other than her unverified after-the-fact allegation to go by.
    He served as a war correspondent during the Sino-Japanese War (1895) and Russo-Japanese War (1905).
    He was stabbed by a jealous husband.
    His clients included Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Thomas Edison, President Grover Cleveland, Prime Minister William Gladstone, King Leopold II of Belgium and King Umberto I of Italy.
    King Edward VII asked him to pick the most auspicious date for his coronation.
    He received the Order of the Lion and the Sun from the Shah of Persia after predicting an assassination attempt that was thwarted by tightened security (1900).
