§750 The foundation of the League of Nations with unexpected results (1918-1946): V-12.

V-12 (§750):

Near Lake Leman the grand retinues shall be led,
By a foreign virgin wishing to deliver them a city,
Before her depression at Augsburg:
And those of the Rhine shall come to invade its member-states.

(Aupres du lac Leman sera conduite,
Par garse estrange cité voulant trahir:
Avant son meurtre à Auspourg la grand suitte
Et ceulx du Ryn la viendront invahir.)

NOTES: Garse: = « garce, s.f., jeune fille (a young girl) » (Godefroy).

Trahir: = Livrer (to deliver); « TRAHIR. (1080; lat. tradere, proprem. « livrer »).» (Petit Robert).

The grand retinues: = the delegations to Geneva of member-states of the League.

Invahir: = « invadir, assaillr, attaquer (to assail, to attack).» (Godefroy).

[1°] A. Lamont’s interpretation of the quatrain, not fully penetrating, is fairly suggestive in delivering the theme of the League of Nations, and [2°] the historical explanations by Palmer will wholly justify the prophetic quatrain of Nostradamus.

1° « Auprès du lac Leman sera conduite Par garde [sic] étrange, Cité voulant trahir, Avant son meurtre, à Augsburg la grand suite Et ceux de Rhin le viendront envahir. TRANSLATION: Near Lake Leman (Geneva) it will be conducted under a foreign guardian willing to betray the City (principles of the League). Before she (the League) is murdered Germans will follow (enter) it. And (later) those of Rhineland will come to attack it. INTERPRETATION: From the beginning the League followed principles dictated by dominant groups within, who were moved not by unselfish devotion to humanity but by their own interests. In 1926 Germany entered it as a member, but after the rise of Hitler she attacked it incessantly and sought its destruction.» (Lamont, 1944, p.148).

2°« Wilson, Woodrow (1856-1924), born in Virginia... He secured Democratic nomination for President in 1912... Mexican raids over the U.S. frontier forced him to send a punitive expedition in 1916. He followed strict neutrality in the European War, seeking statements of war aims from the rival belligerents and being prepared to mediate. He won the 1916 Election on the slogan ‘He Kept Us Out of War’, but the resumption by the Germans of unrestricted U-boat attacks (February 1st, 1917) and intrigues shown by the Zimmermann Telegram forced him, on April 6th, to enter the war as a co-belligerent ‘associated power’, free, if he wished, to make a separate peace. On January 8th, 1918, Wilson issued his Fourteen points as a basis for peace, stressing the need for a League of Nations [the grand retinues shall be led, By a foreign virgin]. Wilson attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, his rapturous reception in Europe blinding him to political realities [a virgin] not only among the Allied politicians, who were less high-minded than he, but also in the U.S. Senate, which had already passed under Republican control. He was forced in Paris to accept compromises, trusting that the League would right the wrongs of the treaties in due course. On returning to America Wilson found that the Senate would not ratify the Treaty of Versailles (which contained the League Covenant) [her depression at Augsburg (Augsburg was often the siege of the imperial Diet [reminiscent of a Senate] of the Holy Roman Empire and the irregular orthography AUSPouRg may imply USA PResident)]. Three weeks after beginning a nationwide campaign to win public support for his ideas, Wilson collapsed (September 26th, 1919). He was an invalid for the last three and a half years of his life.» (Palmer, p.304-305); « League of Nations. An international organization created in 1920 to preserve peace and settle disputes by arbitration or conciliation. Its headquarters were at Geneva [a city near Lake Leman]... The Covenant (i.e. constitution) of the League was incorporated in each of the peace treaties. When Congress refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles, the U.S.A. dissociated itself from the League and never became a member. Germany belonged to the League only from 1926 to 1933, Japan withdrew from the League in 1933, Italy in 1937... It was formally dissolved in April 1946.» (Palmer, p.157-158); « Tripartite Pact. An undertaking for co-operation in establishing the ‘New Order’ in Europe and ‘Greater East Asia’ signed originally by Germany, Italy and Japan in Berlin [those of the Rhine] (September 27th, 1940). The signatories to the Pact undertook to assist each other if one of them was attacked by a Power not already in the War when the Pact was signed. This stipulation seems to have been intended to operate especially against the U.S.A.» (Palmer, p.287); « World War II had its origins in German unwillingness to accept Versailles frontiers and the Anglo-French pledge of support to Poland of April 1939. German forces invaded Poland [m.-s. (member-state) of the League] on September 1st, 1939, and overran the country in four weeks. Britain [m.-s.] and France [m.-s.] declared war on Germany on September 3rd but avoided major operations. In April 1940 the Germans occupied Denmark [m.-s.] and Norway [m.-s.] (where Allied troops resisted for two months). The invasion of Belgium [m.-s.] and Holland [m.-s.] on May 10th, 1940, opened the period of ‘lightning-war’ (Blitzkrieg) in which penetration by German tanks and use of air power encompassed the fall of the Netherlands within four days, Belgium within three weeks and France within seven weeks. Failure to secure air superiority over Britain frustrated Hitler’s plans of invasion and, while continuing submarine attacks on British supply routes, the Germans moved eastwards, invading Yugoslavia [m.-s.] and Greece [m.-s.] in April 1941 and attacking Russia on a 2,000 mile front on 22nd June (in alliance with Finland, Hungary and Roumania)... Japan’s desire for Asiatic expansion induced her to attack British [m.-s.] and American bases on December 7th, 1941 (Germany and Italy declaring war on the U.S.A. three days later). Within four months the Japanese were masters of south-east Asia and Burma [colonies of Britain, France and Holland] and it was not until June 1942 that naval victories in the Pacific stemmed their advance. In the war against Germany, the second battle of Alamein at the end of October 1942 marked the turn of the tide for the British. Allied troops ejected the Germans and Italians from North Africa (October 1942-May 1943), invaded Sicily and Italy and forced the Italians to make a separate peace (September 3rd, 1943)...» (Palmer, p.307).
