''The Secret History'' is a French ComicBook written by Jean-Pierre Pécau and illustrated by a number of artists, but mostly Igor Kordey. It tells the story of four immortal siblings, two brothers and two sisters, who use their superhuman intellect and superpowered runestones to affect world events throughout history. The brothers are Erlin and Dyo, the sisters Reka and Aker. All four are known collectively as the Archons. Erlin is more or less always heroic, Dyo is always evil and has a particular hatred for Jews, Aker is usually heroic but sometimes not, and Reka does a few {{HeelFaceTurn}}s, as if she's suffering from immortal [=PMS=]. The Fifth Archon, William de Lecce, appears later on in history after the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI castrated and blinded him in 1194. This somehow caused him to gain mystical powers, and also twisted his psyche into something monstrously evil. William also hates the Jewish People.

The narrative follows the Archons through history from receiving the runestones in 3000 BC all the way to the end of World War II in the most recent volume. The most time is spent on World War II, with the entire second volume set during that conflict.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: The natural result of the Archon's conspiricies -- a number of historical figures are aware of who and what the Archons are, and are able to assist them in their plots, sometimes using lesser forms of the runestones. Once tarot cards are developed as mini-runestones, they become known as "players." The players include Moses, Renaud de Chatillon, Nostradamus, Benvenuto Cellini, John Dee, William Sidney Smith, Napoleon Bonaparte, T.E. Lawrence, Rudolf von Sebottendorf, St. John Philby and his son Kim, just to name a few. Many real-life painters are employed to paint the tarot card sets, including Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso.

* ReallyGetsAround: Reka is the only Archon who seems interested in sex with mortals. She's only seen bedding Curtis Hawk and Pablo Picasso on-page, but it can be assumed that they weren't her only partners the last few thousand years.
