“Victoria” is the Roman goddess of victory who, more than any other Greco-Roman god or goddess, symbolizes the Roman Empire’s victory over Earth and all of mankind. She is the Roman equivalent of the Greek goddess Nike, and in Latin her name literally means “victory”. Nike and Victoria are often depicted as Zeus’ charioteers in his battle for Mount Olympus (i.e., Greenland). Victoria ultimately determined who would be victorious in battle as was therefore a symbol of victory over death. Consequently, she was featured in Roman society and was routinely worshiped by triumphant generals returning from war. Interestingly, much to the dismay of the Romans, the statue of Victoria in Rome, Italy (i.e., Babylon) was removed in 382 A.D. by the Roman Emperor Gratianus. In all likelihood, the statue of Victoria was disassembled and transported to Rome’s new home in Greenland where it stands to this day. During the days of the Roman Empire, Victoria was associated with chariots, likely symbolic of the Roman generals who often rode chariots during victory celebrations. However, after the Rome’s relocation to Greenland, Victoria is depicted as an angelic-like goddess with wings, likely representative of Greenland which is considered to be “heaven” (i.e., the “haven” of the Roman Empire). The well-guarded secret that Rome has already conquered the world has been popularized by Victoria's Secret, a woman’s lingerie and clothing store. English terms derived from the name of Victoria include but are not limited to: vacancy, vacation, vaccine, vacuum, victory and Viking.
Victoria = Bictoria
In order to confuse historians, the letter “V” was switched with the letter “B” when the Roman Score (i.e., the Roman alphabet) was replaced by the Roman-English alphabet sometime after the alleged Fall of Rome. Therefore, the term “Victoria” (V+C/K+T+R) can also be read as “Bictoria” (B+C/K+T+R). A balk, pronounced “bȯk” (“B+C/K”) essentially represents a “fake” or a “fake out” in the game of baseball. A balk (which is a “foul” or “fool”) is committed when a pitcher pretends to throw the baseball to the batter before throwing the ball instead to a base in an attempt to get the player out. The balk of the Roman Empire was their public move to Constantinople while secretly moving the capital of their empire to Greenland. A “book”, pronounced “bu̇k” (“B+C/K”), is also a balk if sorts for all books in the underworld are devoid of truth in respect to the true history of the Roman Empire. In short, the Greco-Roman Empire was able to achieve “bictory” (i.e., victory) over all of mankind by routinely balking, double-crossing and faking out both allies and enemies like. This particular ideology is coincidentally found in the motto of the Roman Empire: “Through deception, thou shalt do war”. Consequently, a number of terms can be found within the English lexicon which have been derived from the root consonants of “B” and “C/K” (e.g., back, bacteria, bake, balk, beak, bike, book, buck, etc.). A few of the most popular “BK”-related entities include but are not limited to: “BK”, also known as the Federal Criminal Police Office of Austria”; Beko, an appliance and consumer electronics company based in Turkey; Boko Haram, a state-sponsored terror group based in Africa; British Knights (often abbreviated as “BK”) an American shoe company based in New York City; Burger King (often abbreviated as “BK”) an American restaurant company; and “Société Bic”, a French lighter, pen and shaving razors company. Lastly, Victorinox is a Swiss corporation which is coincidentally located in Ibach, Switzerland. It produces the world-famous “Swiss Army Knife”, a physical metaphor for the CIA which is located in Switzerland who is responsible for executing “balks” in the underworld.
