Illuminati Offshoot Organizations

Several known organizations and perhaps a plethora of unknown organizations consider themselves to be descendants or offshoot groups or brother organizations of the Illuminati.

 Ordo Templi Orientis

Only related through a founder, the Ordo Templi Orientis was formed following Theodore Reuss’s attempts to rejuvenate the long-defunct Bavarian Illuminati in the late 1800s to early 1900s. O.T.O. borrowed organization structure and some materials from other groups such as the Freemasons. Best known for its early 20th century leader, Aleister Crowley, the Ordo Templi Orientis is still active today, with both United States and International lodges.

The Illuminati Order

This modern day, self-proclaimed Illuminati group separates itself from common conspiracy theories. Through its website (, the organization establishes that it has no connection to the entrtainment industry (in which many celebrities are suggest to be members, having given blood or human sacrifices to obtain fame) or any religious practices (differing from the group’s supposed involvement with demons). Working with a mission to spread knowledge and rights, the group accepts new members. Futher information about the Order’s inner workings is unknown.

Several other Facebook groups, webpages and online forums suggest they are involved with the Illuminati and are descendents of the original Order of the Illuminati, though there is no way to determine the validity of those claims.

Anti-Illuminati Organizations

Other organizations that refute the Illuminate, suggesting the organization still lives underground, exist primarily with the self-given responsibility to create awareness. From vast corners of the Internet, these groups and websites provide lists of supposed Illuminati members, information on symbols, conspiracy theories and supposed horrendous acts enacted by the Illuminati, and guides on how to avoid Illuminati interference.
