Michel Vallet, veteran Rennes researcher [aka Pierre Jarnac] has brought back his RLC news site and posted an interesting postcard from Rennes-les-Bains. Michel says: The question is often asked whether the appellative - the "Devil's Armchair" is a timely invention of Pierre Plantard and Gérard de Sede, or whether the name was from history and already known as such before Plantard et al arrived in the area. The name refers to a monolith, in the shape of a seat near la fontaine du Cercle in Rennes-les-Bains.
You can see HERE the question is answered by reference to an old postcard from Rennes-les-Bains. Dated to between 1920 - 1935 the message on the back from the sender indeed refers to the Fauteuil du Diable!
