Aliases: Beleth, Bileth, Bilet, Byleth, Bylith, Bilith
Beleth is the lucky Thirteenth spirit of the Ars Goetia and a mighty King of Hell. He can take the form of a human with the head of a cat, a tail and other feline features.
He sometimes rides a pale horse and takes on as frightening a form as a grand King of Hell. He may also look like a powerful old man. Beleth often comes in all his power and appears at first very fierce. And he often tests the strength of those who summon him, which is why it’s important to use protective measures when summoning him.
Beleth plays musical instruments, especially the trumpet, and may have music played before him. He may also appear in a feminine form, which is warmer and friendlier version than Beleth’s masculine form. In this form he might appear as a young woman with long blonde hair and eyes like a doll. In his masculine form Beleth is typically cold and more aggressive.
Powers and Abilities
Beleth has the power to bring you all of the love of both men and women. This can be used for one night stands or casual affairs, but he is more commonly summoned for finding intense, enduring love. Beleth brings stable relationships and companionship. Beleth is sometimes summoned by women to improve their chances at getting a marriage proposal.
Beleth is a demonic tutor and may teach mathematics. He is also a good relationship and grief counselor, offering sound wisdom and advice to those who have recently lost a loved one. Beleth can offer logic and rational thought to stressful romantic relationships or family problems when emotions run high.
The demons or spirits of the Ars Goetia all predate the Ars Goetia, often by thousands of years, and trace back to the oldest known civilizations. Long before Beleth was demonized, he was most likely a spirit worshipped in ancient Mesopotamia.
Beleth’s domain is love, particularly romantic love and lust, and especially marriage and long term relationships. Also other kinds of love, like the platonic love of a good friend or companion and the love shared by close family members.
Beleth, having been at times revealed as a demoness of storms, may have also been worshipped under the names of other storm or rain deities. In the first civilizations, rain was very important for agriculture; not everyone lived next to a river or had canals and irrigation ditches. Those who were further away had to rely on the rain and morning dew, which were strongly associated with fertility.

From the Lesser Key of Solomon by S.L. MacGregor Mathers and Aleister Crowley
(13.) BELETH. – The Thirteenth Spirit is called Beleth (or Bileth, or Bilet). He is a mighty King and terrible. He rideth on a pale horse with trumpets and other kinds of musical instruments playing before him. He is very furious at his first appearance, that is, while the Exorcist layeth his courage; for to do this he must hold a Hazel Wand in his hand, striking it out towards the South and East Quarters, make a triangle, Ò, without the Circle, and then command him into it by the Bonds and Charges of Spirits as hereafter followeth. And if he doth not enter into the triangle, Ò, at your threats, rehearse the Bonds and Charms before him, and then he will yield Obedience and come into it, and do what he is commanded by the Exorcist. Yet he must receive him courteously because he is a Great King, and do homage unto him, as the Kings and Princes do that attend upon him. And thou must have always a Silver Ring on the middle finger of the left hand held against thy face, As they do yet before AMAYMON. This Great King Beleth causeth all the love that may be, both of Men and of Women, until the Master Exorcist hath had his desire fulfilled. He is of the Order of Powers, and he governeth 85 Legions of Spirits. His Noble Seal is this, which is to be worn before thee at working.
From the Luciferian Goetia (2007) by Michael Ford
Beleth/Bileth or Bilet is a King whom appears Mighty and Terrible. Beleth is summoned and manifests upon a pale horse with musical instruments like horns playing near him. He does appear in flames and very angry, the magician even if working with the black mirror will want to silently create a triangle in the South and East Quarters, and command the spirit to take a calm form. When the flames cease, he appears as a King like older man with a long beard. Being of the Order of Powers, he does govern 85 Legions of spirits. Beleth is a useful Love Spell Spirit, whom you would will your desire to become flesh.
From the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (1583) by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)
Bileth is a great king and a terrible, riding on a pale horsse, before whome go trumpets, and all kind of melodious musicke. When he is called up by an exorcist, he appeareth rough and furious, to deceive him. Then let the exorcist or conjuror take heed to himself; and to allaje his courage, let him hold a hazell bat in his hand, wherewithall he must reach out toward the east and south, and make a triangle without besides the circle; but if he hold not out his hand unto him, and he bid him come in, and he still refuse the bond or chain of spirits; let the conjuror proceed to reading, and by and by he will submit himselfe, and come in, and doo whatsoever the exorcist commandeth him, and he shalbe safe. If Bileth the king be more stubborne, and refuse to enter into the circle at the first call, and the conjuror shew himselfe fearfull, or if he have not the chaine of spirits, certeinelie he will never feare nor regard him after. Also, if the place he unapt for a triangle to be made without the circle, then set there a boll of wine, and the exorcist shall certeinlie knowe when he commeth out of his house, with his fellowes, and that the foresaid Bileth will be his helper, his friend, and obedient unto him when he commeth foorth. And when he commeth, let the exorcist receive him courteouslie, and glorifie him in his pride, and therfore he shall adore him as other kings doo, bicause he saith nothing without other princes. Also, if he be cited by an exorcist, alwaies a silver ring of the middle finger of the left hand must be held against the exorcists face, as they doo for Amaimon. And the dominion and power of so great a prince is not to be pretermitted; for there is none under the power and dominion of the conjuror, but he that deteineth both men and women in doting love, till the exorcist hath had his pleasure. He is of the orders of powers, hoping to returne to the seaventh throne, which is not altogether credible, and he ruleth eightie five legions.

How to summon Beleth
I provided a simple step-by-step guide for summoning Beleth already in this article. I recommend reading it before doing anything else because I’ve mentioned some important protective measures that you should take.
You can also hire me to perform a ritual for you. I can summon Beleth for you so that you get the results you need more quickly and effectively. The rituals that I perform for clients are more complex, difficult and effective than the ones you’ll find in popular grimoires, or even what I share on this website for free.
In any case, it’s up to you! Beleth is one of the most powerful love demons, along with Sitri, Dantalion and Zepar. So definitely consider inviting him into your life if you’re struggling with any love-related issues.
