Hi Danaus,  I found this on Fulcanelli:

Fulcanelli (dates of birth and death unknown) is almost certainly a pseudonym assumed, in the late 19th century, by a French alchemist and esoteric author, whose identity is still debated by some. He is also called the Master Alchemist. The appeal of Fulcanelli as a cultural phenomenon is partly due to the mystery that surrounds most aspects of his life and works; one of the anecdotes pertaining to his life retells, in particular, how his most devoted pupil Eugène Canseliet performed a successful transmutation of 100 grams of lead into gold in a laboratory near Sarcelles with the use of a small quantity of the "Projection Powder" given to him by his teacher, in the presence of several eyewitnesses.

Fulcanelli was undoubtedly a Frenchman, widely and profoundly educated, and learned in the ways of alchemical lore, architecture, art, science, and languages. Fulcanelli wrote two books that were published after his disappearance in 1926, having left his magnum opus with his only student, Eugène Canseliet.

Theories about Fulcanelli speculate that he was one or another famous French occultist of the time; a member of the former Royal Family (the Valois); another member of the Frères d'Heliopolis (Brotherhood of Heliopolis, a society centred around Fulcanelli which included Eugène Canseliet, Jean-Julien Champagne and Jules Boucher); etc. All of these theories are speculative, although Canseliet's only student, Patrick Rivière, goes to considerable lengths putting the clues together that were left behind by both Canseliet and Fulcanelli as to the master's true identity. The result of Rivière's research has recently been published in English. The book claims, with compelling evidence, to reveal the true identity of Fulcanelli.

He sounds like an alias for a person that never actually existed. So that would explain Azor's Tale being a hoax, but not the Emerald Tablet, right?  He didn't seem to have anything to do with that, it looks like.
