Andrealphus is a Fallen Angel and 65th of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. Andrealphus is a mighty marquis, who rules 30 Legions. He first appears as a noisy peacock and then as a human. He can transform people into birds and make them very cunning. He teaches perfect geometry and everything pertaining to measurements, as well as astronomy.
“Andrealphus is a great marquess, appearing as a peacocke, he raiseth great noises,and in humane shape perfectly teacheth geometrie, and all things belonging toad measurements, he maketh a man to be a subtill disputer, and cunning in astronomie, and transformed a man into the likeness of a bird, and there are under him thirty legions.”
(Scot, Discoverie of Witchcraft, page 224).
We know that this Demon is very vain and proud, since he comes in the form of a peacock. The animal forms assumed by the Demons express their true natures and personalities in a symbolic way. “Admeasurement” is an old word for practical mathematics. It was also known as mensuration. By astronomy the Demon means practical astrology, the actual casting and interpretation of astrological charts. It’s Unlikely that this Demon could physically change a human being into the shape of a bird, but more probable that he merely cast a glamour over the victim so that he thought himself to be a bird, and saw himself as a bird.
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Samuel MacGregor Liddel Mathers
ANDREALPHUS. – The Sixty-fifth Spirit is Andrealphus. He is a Mighty Marquis, appearing at first in the form of a Peacock, with great Noises.

From the Luciferian Goetia ( 2007 ) – Written by Michael Ford
“Andrealphus is the Sixty-fifth Spirit who is a mighty Marquis, who comes forth as a beast or jester spirit who is like a Peacock, who speaks in tongues with two voices (high and low) at the same instance. He is a Spirit of the Infernal Sabbat, who shall carry thee forth in Astral and Dreaming Flesh in the form of a Bird. Andrealphus teaches astronomy and such sciences.”
From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)

Original Text: Andrealphus Marchio magnus, apparens ut pavo: graves edit sonitus: Et in humana forma docet perfecte geometriam and mensuram spectantia: reddit hominem in argumentando argutum, and in astronomia prudentem, eundemque in avis specimen transmutate. Triginta huic subsunt legiones.
A male Demon who evolved from the ancient Phoenician mother goddess of fertility,Astarte or Ashtoreth. Astaroth is also a Fallen Angel and 29th of 72 Spirits of Solomon. According to Judaic lore, he was a high-ranking Angel, either one of the seraphim or a prince of thrones, prior to his fall.
Astaroth is a grand duke and treasurer of Hell and commands 40 Legions of Demons. He is one of the three supreme evil Demons, with Beelzebub and Lucifer, in the Grimoire Verum and Grand Grimoire, which date from about the 18th century.
In the Lemegeton, he appears as either a beautiful or an ugly angel, riding a dragon and holding a viper. He possesses a powerful stench and stinking breath. Magicians who desire to conjure him must hold a magical ring in front of their faces to protect themselves against his smell.
Astaroth teaches all the sciences and is keeper of the secrets of the past, present, and future. He is invoked in necromantic rituals of divination. When conjured in magical rites, which must be performed on Wednesday nights between 10:00 and 11:00, he will give true answers to questions about the past, present, and future. He discovers secrets and is skilled in liberal sciences. He encourages slothfulness and laziness.
The Demon is said to instigate cases of Demonic Possession,most notablythat of the Loudun nuns in France in the 16th century. The nuns accused a priest, Father Urbain Grandier, of causing their possession. At Grandier’s trial, a handwritten“confession” of his was produced detailing his Pact with the Devil, witnessed and signed by Astaroth and several other Demons.
Astaroth loves to talk about the Creation and the Fall,and the faults of angels. He believes he was punished unjustly by God, and that someday he will be restored to his rightful place in heaven.
Astaroth can be thwarted by calling upon Saint michael the angel and , Bartholomew for help.
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Samuel MacGregor Liddell Mathers
ASTarotH. – The Twenty-ninth Spirit is Astaroth. He is a Mighty, Strong Duke, and appeareth in the Form of an hurtful Angel riding on an Infernal Beast like a Dragon, and carrying in his right hand a Viper. Thou must in no wise let him approach too near unto thee, lest he do thee damage by his Noisome Breath. Wherefore the Magician must hold the Magical Ring near his face, and that will defend him. He giveth true answers of things Past, Present, and to Come, and can discover all Secrets. He will declare wittingly how the Spirits fell, if desired, and the reason of his own fall. He can make men wonderfully knowing in all Liberal Sciences. He ruleth 40 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, which wear thou as a Lamen before thee, or else he will not appear nor yet obey thee, etc.
From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 )written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)
Astaroth is a great and a strong duke, coming forth in the shape of a fowle angell, sitting upon an infernal dragon, and carrying on his right hand a viper: he answereth trulie to matters present, past, and to come, and also of all secrets. He talked willingly of the creator of spirits, and of their fall, and how they sinned and fell: he saith he fell not of his owne accord. He maketh a man wonderful learned in the liberal sciences, he ruleth fourtie legions. Let everie exorcist take heed, that he admit him not too neere him, because of his stinking breath [lit. “because of the intolerable stench which he exhales”]. And therefore let the conjuror hold neere to his face a magical [silver] ring, and that shall defend him.
The Demon Baal (Bael, Baell) is an agricultural and fertility deity of Canaan turned into a Fallen Angel and a Demon. Many minor deities of ancient Syria and Persia carried the name Baal, which means “the lord.”
The greatest Baal was the son of El, the High God of Canaan. He was the lord of life and ruled the death-rebirth cycle. He engaged in a battle with Mot (death) and was slain and sent to the underworld. The crops withered, until Baal’s sister, Anath, the maiden goddess of love, found his body and gave it proper burial. The Canaanites worshipped Baal by sacrificing children by burning.
According to the Zohar, Baal is equal in rank to the archangel Raphael.
Baal is the first of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. He is a king ruling in the east and governs 66 legions of Demons.
He is triple-headed, with a cat’s head and a toad’s head on each side of his human head.
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Mathers, Samuel MacGregor Liddell :
The First Principal Spirit is a King ruling in the East, called Bael. He maketh thee to go Invisible. He ruleth over 66 Legions of Infernal Spirits. He appeareth in divers shapes, sometimes like a Cat, sometimes like a Toad, and sometimes like a Man, and sometimes all these forms at once. He speaketh hoarsely. This is his character which is used to be worn as a Lamen before him who calleth him forth, or else he will not do thee homage.
From the Luciferian Goetia ( 2007 ) – Written by Michael Ford
“Bael is a spirit of shape shifting – by the cat (stealth and instinct), by toad (the form of Ahriman, the gateway of self-initiation of the Devil or Anglican Witchcraft Lore). When one summons Bael it should be done so in the evocation circle – absorb the essence within this circle – focus the mind to be aligned and shadowed with the spirits anthropomorphic identification, until “he” becomes you. You will then work on your ability to shape shift in dreams. The 66 legions of spirit familiars may be commanded by will to produce some results of what you seek in the obtainment of knowledge. Bael is a powerful familiar spirit who may bring one much instinctual impulses in relation to animals and dream shape shifting.”
From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer ( Johann Wier )
Their first king (which is of the power of the east) is called Baëll who when he is conjured up, appeareth with three heads; the first, like a tode; the second, like a man; the third, like a cat. He speaketh with a hoarse voice, he maketh a man go invisible [and wise], he hath under his obedience and rule sixty and six legions of devils.
Original Text: Primus Rex, qui est de potestate Orientis, dicitur Baël, apparens tribus capitibus, quorum unum assimilatur bufoni alterum homini, tertium feli. Rauca loquitur você, formator morum and insignis certator, reddit hominem invisibilem and sapientem. Huic obediunt sexagintasex legiones.
From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy
According to the “le Grand Grimoire”, Bael is the head of the infernal powers. He is also the first Demon listed in Wierus’ Pseudomonarchia daemonum. According to Wierus, Bael is first king of hell with estates in the East. He has three heads: a toad, a man, and a cat. He also speaks in a raucous, but well formed voice, and commands 66 legions. Bael teaches the art of invisibility, and may be the equivalent of Baal.
Also known as: Bael; Bel; Baël
Origin: Medieval Europe
The Demonologists’ Ba’al is no longer a spirit of fertility and rain. He is a King of Hell, attended by seventy legions of Demons (alternatively he only has sixty-six). He has the power to bestow wisdom and invisibility.
Manifestations: As a creature with three heads: cat, man, and toad. His portrait in Collin De Plancy’s Dictionnaire Infernal depicts him with what may be spider’s legs.
