X-66 (§796):

The head of London on his way to the reign America,
To the island of Scotland shall be perplexed by frost,
The Berliners shall have a King so untruthful an Antichrist,
That he shall bring all of them into a severe conflict.

(Le chef de Londres par regne lamerich
L'isle d'Escosse tempiera par gelee,
Roy Reb. auront un si faulx antechrist,
Que les mettra trestous dans la meslee.)

NOTES: The head of London on his way to the reign America, To the island of Scotland shall be perplexed by frost: « It was in 1919 after the war of 1914-18 that I happened to get a review containing an article on Nostradamus. It reproduced a quatrain which retained my attention: it was the quatrain 66 of the Tenth Century. At that time I reasoned that “never so far a King of Britain had not been in America. If someday one of the Kings of Britain shall go there, it will be the announcement of a war. Then we shall wait this journey in wishing it would take place as latest as possible.” ... We had to wait 18 years to obtain the confirmation of my hypotheses. One day in 1938, I knew in a newspaper that King George VI was going to visit Canada, and that thence he would proceed so far as to Washington. Some days [sic. For months] later I knew in the same newspaper that the vessel he was on board had been stopped in front of the Isle of Nova Scotia by dangerous icebergs [frost]. The second verse I had found unusual became in this way surprisingly clear: « l’isle d’Escosse (the island of Scotland) », it was Nova Scotia.» (Willoquet, 1967, p.76-77).

Regne lamerich: = A reign the America (= a State the America = USA), regne (a reign) and lamerich (the America) being in apposition.

Regne l'isle d'Escosse: = A reign the island of Scotland (= a State the Nova Scotia [la Nouvelle Écosse] = Canada), regne (a reign) and l’isle d’Escosse (the island of Scotland) being in apposition.

= He shall be worried, tempiera being the third person singular future of the intransitive verb tempier itself from the French noun « tempier. tempête, confusion (tempest, confusion).»
(Godefroy); « Tempester. Se tempester. S’agiter. Se tourmenter, être soucieux (To tempest. To be agitated, to be worried).» (Huguet).

« 1939 Jun: 8th (-11th), George VI visits U.S. at end of tour of Canada.» (Williams, 1968, p.568).

« Introduction: During the late spring of 1939, Canada buzzed with excitement. The first reigning monarch in Canadian history was going to visit in a remarkable month long 7,000-kilometre trans-Canadian journey by rail, with a brief foray into the United States. A frenzy of apprehension arose as ice and fog delayed the arrival of the royal couple [The head of London shall be perplexed by frost] on the Empress of Australia. Finally, two days late, on May 17, to the cheers of over 10,000 at Quebec City and hundreds of thousands more gathered around radio receivers across the country, the shy King and his lovely Queen stepped on Canadian soil. For four weeks Canadians forgot about the lingering Depression, the looming war in Europe and Asia, and the pressures of everyday life; they became totally absorbed by this unprecedented visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The country was awash in royal fever. Everything came to a stand-still for the duration of the tour: meals were delayed, cut short or not eaten at all; meetings began late or were hurried or simply forgotten; life was disrupted as never before. Everyone scooped up newspapers and huddled around radios to read and to hear the progress of the tour as it proceeded from one end of Canada to the other and back again. The magnificent spectacle of this remarkable tour touched young and old alike, including a young woman in Edmonton, Vera Collins. Vera Collins was a typical young Canadian. She was born October 1, 1909 at Almonte Ontario to Mortimer and Edith Collins. When she wrote her diary, Vera Collins was single. Subsequently, she married Robert Webb and took his name, becoming Vera Webb..... Vera Collins’ journal shows that the Royal Visit was a once-in-a-lifetime event, a breath-taking happening which excited Canadians who relished a break from their daily routines. As the royal train moved westward, Vera’s journal entries became more exuberant, tinged with apprehension. She became caught up in the wonder of public preparations in Edmonton for the royal visitors. With obvious pride, Vera was most pleased with the city’s decoration colour scheme of red, white and blue for its “960 crowns, 215 coats of arms, 23,000 yards of bunting, 2,200 flags and 6,500 pennants.’’ In her personal “tour of inspection” before the arrival of the royal couple, Vera made special mention in her journal of the paintings in front of a dwelling on McDonald Drive near 101st Street. This display of oil paintings of the royal family was completed four months previously by Edmonton’s famous photographer, Ernest Brown and his assistant, Miss Gladys Reeves and put up in front of Miss Reeves’ home. Vera was well satisfied with Edmonton’s preparations. Finally, the day of the visit arrived on June 2, 1939. The city of about 90,000 had swollen to over 200,000. As the royal blue and silver Royal train carrying King George VI and Queen Elizabeth pulled into the CNR station at Edmonton, the sky was clear and blue with the temperature the warmest their Majesties had experienced in Canada at 17 degrees celsius...

« The prospect of a nation-wide royal tour of Canada was extremely popular. To the old desire of Canadians to have their monarch among them, was added curiosity about the new King [crowned in 1936] and Queen and wish to show support for them. The Prime Minister’s enthusiasm reflected the people’s. The importance Mackenzie King attached to the tour is seen from the impressive body he set up to take charge of the planning. The Interdepartmental Committee on the Royal Visit was chaired by civil service mandarin and future Canadian diplomat Ephriam Herbert Coleman, then Under-Secretary of State and Registrar-General of Canada… Even Government House in Ottawa, always a suspicious quarter in Mackenzie King’s mind, was deeply involved in the preparations. King liked the current incumbent, the tactful Lord Tweedsmuir, although they had already had at least one major falling out. So in December 1938 King, with the tour in mind, had Tweedsmuir obtain the King’s approval for amending the official Canadian Table of Precedence last revised in 1923. In 1923 Lieutenant-Governors of provinces had been moved up to second place, following the Governor-General. King, himself responsible for the 1923 change, now wished to put the First Minister (himself) immediately after the King’s Representative… » (Bousfield and Toffoli, 1989, p.22).

« However anxious the king might have been that war should be averted, he undertook two state visits in these years which directly contributed to the solidarity of what would one day be the alliance against Germany. The first, in July 1938, was to France… By the time that the king embarked on the second of his major trips abroad, to North America in May 1939, little hope was left that war might finally be averted. It did not seem possible that the United States could be induced to join a coalition against Germany, but it was essential that it should at least be well disposed towards the Anglo-French alliance and be ready to give it preferential treatment when it came to economic support and the supply of arms. The royal visit therefore formed part of a campaign to influence the hearts and minds of the American people. The American tour was presented as – indeed, was originally conceived as – an appendage to a royal visit to Canada. To avoid any accusation that the king was seeking to make political points he was accompanied, not by the British foreign secretary but by the Canadian prime minister. The visit was low-key, informal and yet designed to secure as much publicity as possible. It was largely due to the dexterity, as well as the obvious enthusiasm and goodwill, of the king and queen that the aims of the mission were accomplished. The tour got off to an inauspicious start when the king’s ship, The Empress of Australia, lost more than three days because of the inordinate number of icebergs along the route [shall be perplexed by frost]. The captain, the queen told Queen Mary, was driven almost demented by helpful passengers pointing out that his ship was close to the spot where, at much the same time of year, the Titanic had met its end. No such disaster occurred on this occasion and the visit to Canada was triumphantly successful. ‘I realise now more than ever,’ wrote the Governor General, Lord Tweedsmuir, more widely known as the novelist John Buchan – ‘what a wonderful mixture [the king] is of shrewdness, kindliness and humour. As for the queen, she has a perfect genius for the right kind of publicity,’ That is the sort of thing governor generals are supposed to say, but there is enough evidence from other sources to suggest that Tweedsmuir’s flattering words were fully justified. The American public was a harder nut to crack. A large part of the population was both anti-imperialist and opposed to anything that they felt might embroil them in a European war. There was no overnight conversion as a result of the royal visit but in Washington they were greeted by enormous crowds, who may have come out of curiosity but, according even to the more anti-British elements of the American press, formed a most favourable impression of their visitors. What mattered more was the bond that was forged between the king and queen and President Franklin Roosevelt. They stayed with Roosevelt at Hyde Park, the president’s family home on the Hudson River. The two men spoke long and seriously and George VI’s record of their conversation reveals how frank the president was about the United States’ attitude towards the forthcoming war and his hopes of influencing it in favour of the Allies. Indeed, he promised more than he was able to fulfil, for he told the king that, if the Germans were to bomb London, America would enter the war. A firm if unlikely friendship established between the two men. For the five and a half years between September 1939 and his death in April 1945, Roosevelt, from the point of view of the future of Britain, was the most important man in the world. The fact that the king was able to write to him informally, reflecting the views of his government but in personal terms and free of the trammels of official communications, must, at the very least, have been a useful extra weapon in Britain’s diplomatic armoury. So it was back to Britain at the end of June, with Germany growing ever more belligerent and the inevitability of war becoming more obvious by the moment. George VI was one of the last people to abandon hope that Hitler might experience a last-minute change of heart. He offered, once more, to make a personal appeal; this time through his cousin, Prince Philip of Hesse. Chamberlain turned down the idea; he was probably right to do so, it would have achieved nothing and might merely have fortified Hitler in his belief that, when it came to the point, Britain and France would baulk at going to war. That point came on 3 September 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. As his father had been a quarter of a century before, George VI found himself monarch of a country which was at war.» (Ziegler, 2018, p.48-52).

The head of London ... so untruthful an Antichrist ... into a severe conflict « I
NTERPRETATION: The United States will join England against a cruel tyrant who will be opposed to the church – Adolf Hitler. Plainly, Nostradamus says here that the United States will join Great Britain to crush Adolf Hitler and his Nazis.» (Lamont, 1944, p.320).

Roy Reb. auront un si faulx antechrist: The construction will be as follows: Reb. auront Roy un si faulx antechrist (Reb. shall have a King, so untruthful an Antichrist). The term with a period of ellipsis Reb. probably suggests Berlinois (Berliners, those of Berlin = the Germans), and Roy and un si faulx antechrist seem to be in apposition. The interpretation by Ionescu (1976, p.544) of the term Reb. simply as “BERLIN (BER, the simple inversion of Reb., comes from BERLIN)” is insufficient because the verb in the plural “auront ([they] shall have)” demands its subject in the plural, nor his conclusive one as “the government of the Nazis of Berlin (Roy Reb.)” (id., p.545) is pertinent because he congregates the subject and the object of a sentence into one subject, wich being left yet in the singular.

: « ANTÉCHRIST or rather ANTICHRIST. According to the Epistles of John, the Christians of the end of the 1st century did not wait for the return of the Christ before the arrival of an Anti-Christ [ἀντίχριστος], namely, following the Greek etymology, of a false replacement of the Christ. On the other hand, the second Epistle to the Thessalonians precedes Advent of the Christ by that of a “Man of lawlessness, Son of destruction” who shall be the instrument of Satan to provoke a general apostasy, ruin the religions and proclaim himself God (2Th 2, 3-9)... The Antichrist and the Man of lawlessness are not but a single figure upon which the posterior centuries have projected their successive fears.» (Monloubou, p.39-40).

Un si faulx antechrist
: = « An Antechrist so deceitful and so unfaithful – Hitler.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.545); « Concerning our times, the Prophet considers three Antechrists: Staline (quatrains VI-49, X-1 and X-65), Hitler (X-66) and Mao Tse-Tung (VIII-77). These dictators have in common some distinctive traits: 1. They imposed a totalitarian regime with a great cruelty. 2. The number of their victims amounts to tens of millions (by wars, executions and prisons). 3. They made “cultural revolutions” in opposing the religion and the tradition of their country. 4. They provoked the hatred and the conflict among races and social classes. 5. They erected themselves as superhuman entities and encouraged the cult of their personality.» (Ionescu, 1987, p.451-452). There appears in the Dedication to Henry II (№3, pp.3-23; №10, pp.153-173) five examples of the word Antechrist/antechrist, whose two of the paragraphs 44-46 (following Le Pelletier’s paragraphing) refer to Stalin because the passage includes the name ‘Atila [Attila]’ and the event of ‘October Revolution’, another two of the paragraphs 93-95 to Hitler because the region of Europe and the supposed years 37-45 [WWII] are told there, and the remaining one of the paragraph 107-109 also to Hitler, there being exposed the Roman occupation by ‘the antechrist, the infernal prince’ in the hottest battle in the Christian countries probably after Mussolini’s fall.

Les... trestous (all of hem): = The peoples of Great Britain, the United States, Canada and Germany.

Meslee: = « MÊLÉE. Confusion de combattants au corps à corps. Lutte, conflit (Confusion of hand-to-hand combatants. Struggle, conflict).» (Petit Robert).

The Berliners shall have a King so untruthful an Antichrist, That he shall bring all of them into a severe conflict: « Hitler “sang false”, in deed, by his solemn declarations made to the prime Minister Chamberlain – after the “Munich Conference” (September 30, 1938) by means of which Hitler obtained the region of Sudetenland – not to risk any other aggression. Moreover, all the declarations made by the Führer were revealed false; all the rest of Czechoslovakia was occupied only a few months later, and then Poland was also invaded, which determined the declaration of war by Chamberlain.» (Ionescu, id., p.544).

Que les mettra trestous dans la meslee: Great Britain (September 3, 1939), the USA (December 11, 1941 through German declaration of war against USA) and Canada (September 10, 1939) declared war against Germany in the World War II (cf. Ploetz, 1998, p.757).
