Linking some patterns to St Germain and Fulcanelli:

you are probably familiar with this Legend as you may have seen it on:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) - IMDb

Quote:
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a 2011 adventure fantasy film and the fourth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Gore Verbinski, who had directed the three previous films, was replaced by Rob Marshall, while Jerry Bruckheimer again served as producer.

In the film, which draws inspiration from the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is joined by Angelica (Penélope Cruz) in his search for the Fountain of Youth, confronting the infamous pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane). The film was distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, and had its theatrical debut in release dates falling within May 18 and May 20, 2011.
the famed Navigator it refers to is:

Juan Ponce de León as in Castile and León

Quote:
Juan Ponce de León[1] (English pronunciation: /ˈpɒns də ˈliən/[2] Spanish pronunciation: [ˈponθe ðe leˈon]; 1474 – July 1521)[3] was a Spanish explorer. He became the first Governor of Puerto Rico by appointment of the Spanish crown. He led the first European expedition to Florida, which he named. He is associated with the legend of the Fountain of Youth, reputed to be in Florida.
Quote:
Juan Ponce de León was born in the village of Santervás de Campos in the northern part of what is now the Spanish province of Valladolid. Although early historians placed his birth in 1460, more recent evidence shows he was likely born in 1474. His family genealogy is extremely confusing and poorly documented.[citation needed] There is no consensus on who his parents were but it seems that he was a member of a distinguished and influential noble family. His relatives included Rodrigo Ponce de León, Marquis of Cádiz a celebrated figure in the Moorish wars.[4]

Ponce de León was also related to another notable family, Núñez de Guzmán, and as a young man he served as squire to Pedro Núñez de Guzmán, Knight Commander of the Order of Calatrava. A big contemporary chronicler, Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo y Valdés, states that Ponce de León became an experienced soldier fighting in the Spanish campaigns that defeated the Moors in Granada and completed the re-conquest of Spain in 1492.[5]
Fyi: Puerto Rico is also a hot bed for UFO / USO Sightings

let's see if we can find a cathedral built during his time:

Cathedral of San Juan Bautista - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
The Cathedral of San Juan Bautista is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The cathedral is one of the oldest buildings in San Juan, and is the second oldest cathedral in the Americas. The Catedral de Santa María la Menor in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic is the oldest. Construction of Cathedral San Juan began in 1521 (HM 9 for fun ).[1]

The cathedral contains the tomb of the Spanish explorer and settlement founder Juan Ponce de León. It also has the relics of Carlos Manuel Rodríguez Santiago, the first Puerto Rican, the first Caribbean-born layperson and the first layperson in the history of the United States to be beatified
