§773 Mussolini, Pius XI and Hitler (1929-1939): VII-24.

VII-24 (§773):

The buried shall come out of his tomb,
Shall make bind the strong of the bridge with chains:
Shall be poisoned with the roes of a barbel,
A great of Lorraine by the Marquis of the Bridge.

(L'ensevely sortira du tombeau,
Fera de chaines lier le fort du pont:
Empoysoné avec œufz de barbeau,
Grand de Lorraine par le Marquis du Pont.)

NOTES: The buried shall come out of his tomb: = When the sepulcher of the great Roman found (§772, III-65) = At the foundation of a new sect, The bones of the great Roman shall be found, The sepulcher of marble shall appear covered (§777, VI-66): « The profound cause of the birth, the development and the end of the Fascism was the worship of the Roman emperors, of whom it made a model.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.535).

The buried Shall make bind the strong of the bridge with chains
: Mussolini’s strategic policy of his reconciliatory agreement with the Pope has a nuance of fastening the Holy See (le fort du pont, the strong of the bridge, the fort of the Pontiff, the Vatican) within his regime in a manner: « An understanding was reached with the pope by the Lateran Treaty (1929). Mussolini, though something of an atheist himself, was well aware of the power of the Roman Catholic Church, and put himself out to win over Pius XI who, as the Duce well knew, was obsessed with the fear of communism. The result was the Lateran Treaty by which Italy recognised the Vatican City as a sovereign state, paid the pope a large sum of money as compensation for all his losses, accepted the Catholic faith as the official state religion and made religious instruction compulsory in all schools. In return the Papacy recognised the kingdom of Italy. Some historians see the ending of the long breach between church and state as Mussolini’s most lasting and worthwhile achievement.» (Lowe, 1988, p.100).

Shall be poisoned
: This expression is analogous to that of the preceding quatrain: His blood in the sacred chalice poisoned (§772, III-65), in this case the Pope Pius XI (le fort du pont, le Marquis du Pont) shall be poisoned by a great of Lorraine (Hitler).

The roes of a barbel
: a very delicious plate.

A great of Lorraine
: = Hitler, Alsace-Lorraine belonging to the Nazi Germany.

The Marquis of the Bridge
: = the Pope Pius XI, the French word le Pont (the Bridge) immediately suggesting the Pontiff, and the etymology of the word le Marquis (the Marquis): “la marche”, i.e. « Province frontière d’un état, A frontier province of a state.» (Petit Robert) recalling the Vatican, a frontier district of Italy.

Shall be poisoned with the roes of a barbel, A great of Lorraine by the Marquis of the Bridge
: The construction is as follows, the preposition ‘by (par)’ being in dislocation (cf. §731-sequel 5): The Marquis of the Bridge shall be poisoned with the roes of a barbel by a great of Lorraine: « Initially, Pius saw Communism as more damaging than the emergent National Socialism of Germany, and therefore he signed the concordat [the roes of a barbel] with Hitler in 1933. Nevertheless, it quickly became obvious that National Socialism was both oppressive and dangerous and so, after many protests addressed to the Nazi government, Pius denounced it in 1937 as anti-Christian and ordered his letter to be read from every Catholic pulpit.» (Maxwell-Stuart, 2006, p.225).

§774 Mussolini in Rome and overseas (1922-1939): IX-96.

IX-96 (§774):

The army denied to enter the city,
Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion,
He claims the army led to the vulnerable gates,
They shall wage wars, death of bloodshed.

(Dans cité entrer exercit desniee,
Duc entrera par persuasion,
Aux foibles portes clam armee amenee,
Mettront feu, mort de sang effusion.) (№10)

NOTES: Exercit: = « exercite, s.m., armée (army).» (Godefroy).

Desnier: = Dénier (to deny, to refuse) (Dubois).

Duc
: « ‘Duc’ may be taken for ‘Duce’, the title Benito Mussolini assumed as fascist head of the Italian State after 1924.»  (Halley, 1999, p.145).

Clam
: = Clame by apocope, for the liaison with armee; « clamer, v.n. crier, réclamer (to cry, to claim).» (Godefroy).

The army denied to enter the city, Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion
: At Udine he told them, in the last of a series of major speeches given all over the country: ‘Our programme is simple: we wish to govern Italy.’ He would govern Italy as it had never been governed since Roman times: firmly, fairly, justly, honestly, above all efficiently. On 16 October 1922 Mussolini decided to force the issue, believing that if he waited, Giolitti, the one man he feared, might steal his role. He arranged for a march on Rome for the end of the month, by four divisions totalling 40,000 blackshirted men. Many army and police commanders agreed not to fire on them, and his paper, Il Popolo d’Italia, carried the banner: I grigioverdi fraternizzano con le Camicie Nere! [The graygreens (of the Italian Army uniforms) will fraternize with the Black Shirt (of the Fascists)!] Mussolini had a lifelong capacity for hovering uneasily between grandeur and farce. By the time his ill-equipped, badly clothed and unfed army had halted outside Rome [The army denied to enter the city], in pouring rain, on the evening of 28 October, it did not present a very formidable spectacle. Mussolini played his cards skillfully. When he was telephoned in Milan by the King’s
ADC, General Cittadini, and offered partial power in a new ministry, he simply replaced the receiver. The next day, 29 October, he graciously consented to form his own government, provide the invitation by phone was confirmed by telegram. The wire duly came, and that evening he went to Milan Station in state, wearing his black shirt, to catch the night-sleeper to Rome... [Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion]» (Johnson, 1991, p.99-100).

Duc
: « ‘Duc’ may be taken for ‘Duce’, the title Benito Mussolini assumed as fascist head of the Italian State after 1924.»  (Halley, 1999, p.145).

He claims the army led to the vulnerable gates, They shall wage wars, death of bloodshed

« 1935 Jun: 23rd, Anthony Eden offers Benito Mussolini concessions over Abyssinia, which he rejects.» (Williams, 1968, p.546);
« 1935 Oct: 2nd, Italy invades Abyssinia.» (Williams, id., p.548);
« 1935 Oct: 19th, League imposes sanctions against Italy.»  (Williams, id., p.548); The vulnerable gates: « The vulnerable gates would then be those of Makale, the provincial capital of Ethiopia, when fell to the Duce on 8 November 1935.»  (Halley, id.);
« 1936 May: 5th, Italians occupy Addis Ababa, ending Abyssinian war [They shall wage wars, death of bloodshed] and, 9th, Abyssinia is formally annexed by Italy.»  (Williams, id., p.552);
« 1937 Mar: 16th, Benito Mussolini visits Libya.»  (Williams, id., p.558);

§775 Mussolini into war to be lost in the end (1940-1943): X-64.

X-64 (§775):

Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence,
For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot,
Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice,
When the Pillar at Rome shall change.

(Pleure Milan, pleure Luques, Florence,
Que ton grand Duc sur le char montera,
Changer le siege pres de Venise s'avance,
Lors que Colomne à Rome changera.)

NOTES: Milan, Lucca, Florence: Representing Italy by synecdoche, = Millane, Florence (§770, VII-32), = Luc (§776, IX-80).

Your great Duke
: = Il Duce Benito Mussolini (§774, IX-96), = the Duke (§776, IX-80)

Colomne: = Colonne (Fr.) = Column, Colomne being from the Latin « columna, ae, f., a column, pillar, post.» (Smith-Lockwood).

Colomne à Rome: = the Pillar of Rme = the Pillar of the state of Italy, i.e., the sovereign King of Italy.

Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence, For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot, Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice, When the Pillar at Rome shall change: = §770, VII-32: One of the Royal mountain shall be born of a hovel... Shall exhaust Faenza, Florence, wealth and the nation: « He declared war on Britain and France on June 10th, 1940, when France was already defeated [your great Duke who shall mount the chariot]. On the following October 28th his troops invaded Greece but were repulsed and, soon after, suffered reverses in Libya and East Africa. These defeats weakened Mussolini’s prestige, especially as the Fascists had always sought to inculcate admiration for the glories of war [Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence, For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot...]. By the summer of 1941 Mussolini had become virtually a German pensionary but it was not until July 25th, 1943, that a coup by King Victor Emmanuel and Marshal Badoglio forced him to resign [When the Pillar at Rome shall change]. He was imprisoned, but was rescued from the Appennines by German parachutists (September 12th, 1943) and set up a Republican Fascist Government which administered German-occupied northern Italy [Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice].» (Palmer, p.194-195).

Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice: « Mussolini is no more than a marionette in the hands of the Führer. He opposes against the government of Marshal Badoglio an ‘Italian Social Republic’ born on December 1st, 1943, on the shore of Lake Garda. Surnamed the ‘Republic of Salo’ [his seat near Venice], this ephemeral regime is not but a last misadventure of the radical fascism, subject to the German protector, whose members draw the northern Italy into fire and blood.» (Trémolières IV, p.61).

§776 The belligerent Mussolini disastrous in the end (1935-1945): IX-80.

IX-80 (§776):

The duke shall want to terminate those of his own,
Shall send the strongest into foreign countries,
By tyranny shall ruin Pise and Lucca,
Next the barbarous shall reap harvests without wine.

(Le duc vouldra les siens exterminer,
Envoiera les plus fortz lieux estranges,
Par tyrannie Pize & Luc ruiner,
Puis les barbares sans vin feront vendanges.)

NOTES: « IX-80 (1922f) The policy grievous for the Italians of Mussolini, whom Nostradamus here names “the Duke”, is here predicted. After the Duke had sent his blackshirted men to Abyssinia and into the Second World War, the Italians became more and more dependent on Hitler, who governed the Italians in the end with no profiting from it. (“The Germans have an abundant vintage, with no wine in hand.”)» (Centurio, 1953, p.207).

The duke: = Your great Duke (§775, X-64) = Il Duce Benito Mussolini (§774, IX-96); « This quatrain is remarkable even from the first words, for the word “duke (duc)” indicates us with the greatest clarity Mussolini, “il Duce”.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.526).

Les siens (those of his own): = « his [Mussolini’s] own people.» (Halley, 1999, p.145).

Les plus fortz (the strongest): = the strongest of his people = the soldiers of his army, Ionescu’s interpretation of the verses as “his best forces (ses meilleures forces)” (Ionescu, 1976, p.528) being too narrow to be faithful to the text.

Lieux estranges: = En lieux estranges (into foreign places), sur les pays étrangers (to the foreign countries) (Ionescu, id.), this type of ellipse of preposition can be called as “embrouiller prophetiquement (to embroil prophetically)” (See Category d, §5, A l’Entrée des Prophéties).

The duke Shall send the strongest into foreign countries: = He claims the army led to the vulnerable gates, They shall wage wars, death of bloodshed (§774, IX-96). 

Pise and Lucca: = « By synecdoche: Italy herself.» (Ionescu, id., p.526).

The duke shall want to terminate those of his own, Shall send the strongest into foreign countries, By tyranny shall ruin Pise and Lucca
: = One of the Royal mountain shall come to tyrannize, Shall exhaust Faenza, Florence, wealth and the nation (§770, VII-32): « From the Corfu Incident of 1924 [sic; (1923)] to the attack on Abyssinia of 1935, [Mussolini] indulged in an aggressive foreign policy. Although at first hostile to Hitler’s Germany because of its ambitions in Austria (Italy’s neighbour), the similarity between the Fascist and Nazi systems and the international ostracism imposed on Italy because of the Abyssinian War led Mussolini to bring the two countries together in what he called the ‘Axis’ of 1936. At Easter 1939 he annexed Albania. He declared war on Britain and France on June 10th, 1940, when France was already defeated. On the following October 28th his troops invaded Greece but were repulsed and, soon after, suffered reverses in Libya and East Africa. These defeats weakened Mussolini’s prestige, especially as the Fascists had always sought to inculcate admiration for the glories of war. By the summer of 1941 Mussolini had become virtually a German pensionary but it was not until July 25th, 1943, that a coup by King Victor Emmanuel and Marshal Badoglio forced him to resign. He was imprisoned, but was rescued from the Appennines by German parachutists (September 12th, 1943) and set up a Republican Fascist Government which administered German-occupied northern Italy. On April 28th, 1945, he was captured by Italian partisans and shot on the shore of Lake Como while attempting to escape into Switzerland. His corpse was taken to Milan and hung in the Piazzale Loreto amid demonstrations of public execration.» (Palmer, p.194-195).

The barbarous
: « The “barbarous” are the troops of Hitler, who invaded Italy, in order to resist the Allies.» (Ionescu, id., p.528).

Next the barbarous shall reap harvests without wine: « During the World War II, the Germans will intervene to occupy the weakened country of Mussolini, but their sanguinary efforts will rest without result.» (Ionescu, id.); « Mussolini is no more than a marionette in the hands of the Führer. He opposes against the government of Marshal Badoglio an ‘Italian Social Republic’ born on December 1st, 1943, on the shore of Lake Garda. Surnamed the ‘Republic of Salo’, this ephemeral regime is not but a last misadventure of the radical fascism, subject to the German protector, whose members draw the northern Italy into fire and blood.» (Trémolières IV, p.61).

§777 The Fascists aspiring to revive the Roman glory end in catastrophe (1922-1945): VI-66.

VI-66 (§777):

At the foundation of the new sect,
Shall be found the bones of the great Roman,
The covered sepulcher of marble shall appear,
The earth shall tremble in April, deformed burials.

(Au fondement de la nouvelle secte,
Seront les oz du grand Romain trouvés,
Sepulcre en marbre apparoistra couverte,
Terre trembler en Avril, mal enfouetz.)

NOTES: « VI-66 (1920f) The Fascists considered themselves as successors to the grat Romans.» (Centurio, 1953, p.143).

The new sect: = « the Fascism.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.535).

The bones of the great Roman: = « those of Caesar.» (id.).

At the foundtion of the new sect, Shall be found the bones of the great Roman: = When the sepulcher of the great Roman found (§772, III-65) = The buried shall come out of his tomb (§773, VII-24): « The profound cause of the birth, the development and the end of the Fascism was the worship of [Caesar and] the Roman emperors, of whom it made a model.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.535).

Sepulcre en marbre apparoistra couverte: = Sepulcre en marbre couverte apparoistra, the feminine form of the word ‘couvert’, “couverte”, being rhymed with “secte” of the first line.

The covered sepulcher of marble shall appear: The success in the beginning of the Fascist party = One of the Royal mountain, Who bets and is reliable, shall come to tyrannize, Shall raise troops of the Milanese march (§770, VII-32).

Enfouetz: The past participle in the plural of the verb « enfouer, v.a., enfouir, enterrer (to bury, to inter).» (Godefroy).

The earth shall tremble: The phrase “terre tremble (the earth to tremble)”, together with “tremblement de terre (tremble of the earth)”, is a manner of saying preferred by Nostradamus for expressing « A war/ a war to take place » (cf. Ionescu, 1976, p.459). All of the 12 usages of this expression in the Prophecies of Nostradamus are in this sense without exception (I-20, I-46, I-93, II-52, III-3, VI-66, VI-88, VIII-29, IX-31, IX-83, X-60 and X-79). Moreover, of the other 24 phrases including the word “trembler (to tremble)”, 17 are yet in this sense (I-57, I-82bis, I-87, II-68, II-86, IV-54, IV-90, V-27, V-50, V-61, V-68, IX-33, IX-60bis, IX-94 and X-67) as well as the other 5 with an expression of ‘fear’ (III-88, IV-5, IV-36, V-23 and XII-65) and only the remaining 2 are allotted otherwise (II-64: enfeebling of laws; V-49: shake of the regime). In conclusion, 34 of 36 usages of the word “trembler (to tremble)” are designed to signify the war.

The earth shall tremble in April, deformed burials: = The earth shall tremble [It shall take place the World War II], deformed burials in April [in April 1945 Mussolini was assassinated and hung] (Ionescu, id., p.536): « He declared war on Britain and France on June 10th, 1940, when France was already defeated. On the following October 28th his troops invaded Greece but were repulsed and, soon after, suffered reverses in Libya and East Africa. These defeats weakened Mussolini’s prestige, especially as the Fascists had always sought to inculcate admiration for the glories of war. By the summer of 1941 Mussolini had become virtually a German pensionary but it was not until July 25th, 1943, that a coup by King Victor Emmanuel and Marshal Badoglio forced him to resign. He was imprisoned, but was rescued from the Appennines by German parachutists (September 12th, 1943) and set up a Republican Fascist Government which administered German-occupied northern Italy. On April 28th, 1945, he was captured by Italian partisans and shot on the shore of Lake Como while attempting to escape into Switzerland. His corpse was taken to Milan and hung in the Piazzale Loreto amid demonstrations of public execration.» (Palmer, p.194-195).

In April, deformed burials
: « The tragic end of the Duce. The Italian partisans, refusing to deliver Mussolini to the Allies, shot him with 17 loyals of his followers. His mistress shared the same fate. Their corpses hung by the legs were subject to the public vengeance at Loreto Place in Milan.» (Trémolières IV, p.61).

§778 The downfall of the Spanish monarchy (1921-1941): III-19.

III-19 (§778):

In Luke blood and milk shall come to rain:
A little earlier change of the praetor,
Shall make see great plague and war, famine and thirst
The distant place, where their prince-rector shall die.

(En Luques sang & laict viendra plouvoir:
Un peu devant changement de preteur,
Grand peste & guerre, faim & soif fera voyr
Loing, ou mourra leur prince recteur.)

NOTES: « III-19 (1936f) The Spanish Civil War: In Luke near Cordoba (in southern Spain) begins the Civil War. Milky blood, namely many young men fall. The suffering of the war shall make open the nation’s eyes. It will be a pity that Alfonso XIII, the legitimate king of Spain, should die far off his homeland.» (Centurio, 1953, p.72).

Luques (Luke): « Synecdoche – Luke, a city of Spain, for Spain herself.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.447); « In order to indicate Spain, Nostradamus chooses a city of this country, a city which has the name of one of the Evangelists. The point in question is therefore the monarchical and traditional Spain.» (Ionescu, id.).

In Luke blood and milk shall come to rain: « The words “blood and milk” seem to be an indication of the downfall of the King because “blood” means a noble birth and “milk” (together with honey) is a ritual substance of the royal anointment.» (id., p.447-448); «The constitutional monarchy under Alfonso XIII was never very efficient and reached rock bottom in 1921 when a Spanish army sent to put down a revolt led by Abd-el-Krim in Spanish Morocco was massacred by the Moors. In 1923 General Primo de Rivera seized power in a bloodless coup, with Alfonso’s approval, and ruled for the next seven years. The king called him ‘my Mussolini’, but though Primo was a military dictator, he was not a fascist. He was responsible for a number of public works – railways, roads and irrigation schemes; industrial production developed at three times the rate before 1923; most impressive of all, he managed to end the war in Morocco (1925). When the world economic crisis reached Spain in 1930 unemployment rose, Primo and his advisers bungled the finances, causing depreciation of the peseta, and the army withdrew support, whereupon Primo resigned [A little earlier change of the praetor]. In April 1931 municipal elections were held in which the republicans won all the large cities; as huge crowds gathered on the street of Madrid, Alfonso decided to abdicate to avoid bloodshed, and a republic was proclaimed [In Luke blood and milk shall come to rain]. The monarchy had been overthrown without bloodshed, but unfortunately the slaughter had merely been postponed until 1936.» (Lowe, 1988, p.171-173);

« 1931 Apr: 14th, King Alfonso flees in Spanish revolution and Alcalá Zamora becomes President of provisional government.» (Williams, 1968, p.528).

Praetor: « Ancient-Roman magistrate below consul.» (Sykes).

A little earlier change of the praetor: « 1930 Jan: 28th, dictatorship of Primo de Rivera ends in Spain and General Damaso Berenguer forms ministry.» (Williams, id., p.524).

In Luke blood and milk shall come to rain: A little earlier change of the praetor, Shall make see great plague and war, famine and thirst
: = In Luke blood and milk shall come to rain: A little earlier change of the praetor, [which] Shall make see great plague and war, famine and thirst: Namely, the downfall of the monarchy and the Republican political inefficiency in Spain make finally ensue the civil war [war] with horrible atrocities [great plague] and miseries [famine and thirst]: « It was an unexpected flare-up in Spain in 1936 that first brought the forces of Fascism and democracy (or was it communism?) into open conflict. Franco, the Spanish general who led the right-wing revolt against the not very competent left-wing government of Spain, quickly got the upper hand in this fighting. During 1937 he completed the conquest of the north; in 1938 he split the remaining republican territory into two halves by driving through to the Mediterranean. The next year’s campaign was to bring him complete victory. By then a half a million Spaniards had died, more of them in the mass executions that both sides were prone to indulge in than in the front-line fighting. The Spanish Republic had come into existence in 1931, when a popular rebellion forced King Alfonso XIII to flee. The Republicans then attempted to push Spain from the eighteenth century into the twentieth in one go, a programme that alienated the church, the army and the upper classes and finally precipitated Franco’s rebellion. Franco received important, but probably not critical, help from Hitler and Mussolini; the Republicans got a bit of help – not enough to make any difference – from Stalin, and rather more from the international communist movement which sponsored the volunteer international Brigades.» (McEvedy, 1982, p.70).

Rector
: « Head priest of church, etc.; head of university, college, school, or religious institution.» (Sykes).

The distant place, where their prince-rector shall die
: « The last verse returns to the King Alfonso XIII, who shall die far off his country. Nostradamus names him “prince-rector” because the word “rector” has the meaning of ‘chief’, but also ‘by right, good, legitimate and virtuous’. The good King of legitimacy shall die in Rome [on February 28, 1941], far off his country.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.447).
