Ummmm, alchemy board game?  Granted I'm not interested in theosophy etc, but is there any evidence of this person even existing?

As you imply, the video would seem to have been put together to help market Cindy's board-game:

"Historical photographs and film footage of Countess Margarita di Morgano, theosophist and alchemist, taken during her visit to Prague just before the first world war, to catalogue the estate of her late uncle Count Maximillian di Morgano of Bohemia. Amongst his valuable ancient books and manuscripts, she discovers an ancient game called 'Alchemy', allegedly played in the court of Rudolf the Second, which her great grand daughter Cindy Morgan has recently re-designed and adapted for the current esoteric market..."

Stash seems to want some answers too:

"I am somewhat of a world reknowned authority on the subject of Alchemy. I am most intrigued by your family game Alchemy. As it happens one of my most famous works is "The Golden Game", a study of hermetic emblems in alchemical literature of the 17th century. All the very Best, Stanislas Klossowski de Rola."

The "game" is shown at 1:23 of the video.
