For years Himmler looked at how his SS order was to be governed, his inspiration came from the Knights of the round table. Himmler chose a council of 12 leaders, and the setting for this was Wewelsburg castle.
The Castle was, amongst other things, the repository for the SS Honour rings belonging to the deceased or fallen members of the SS.
Heinrich Himmler made no secret of his fascination for the occult. He was obsessed with astrology, and firmly believed in reincarnation.
Himmler spoke freely of his convictions and that he was the reincarnation of the 10th century Saxon King Henry Fowler.
Every year on the anniversary of the Kings death, Himmler would lay a wreath on his grave then banish his subordinates to meditate in solitude.
Himmler became convinced he could enter into psychic communication with the dead King.
Himmler also believed he had inherited the Kings mission to conquer the east and create an Aryan empire.
