Crazy Eddie Need Info: Seventh son of a seventh son (67* d) RE: BS: Seventh son of a seventh son 16 Aug 01


No songs, but in Ireland 7th sons of 7th sons were (are?) believed by many (some?) to have powers of healing.

In Terry Pratchett's discworld, the eighth son of an eighth is a wizard. Wizards are supposed remain celibate, to avoid any possibility of an eighth son of an eighth son of an eighth son. Such a one would be a sourcerer, (able to touch the source of magic), with enough power to destroy the entire world.
