The Cosmic Movement was founded in the early 20th century by two mysterious esoteric teachers, Max Théon, and his wife, Madame Théon. Madame Théon, who was also known as Una and Alma, had a leading role in the movement—but, her disciples did not know her real name, her origins, or her history before she met Théon. This article shall introduce new information concerning the early history of Madame Théon, which enables to determine with precision her identity and origins, the main stages in her life, and her intellectual and spiritual activities and transformations.
