Hello, Gematrinators!

World War I – A Gregorian Pi Riddle

World War I began on a date with 32-40-50 numerology, matching the word Circle in three of the four base ciphers:7 + 2+8 + 1+9+1+4 = 32(7) + (28) + 1+4 = 40(7) + (28) + 1+9+1+4 = 50

"Circle" = 32 (Full Reduction)"Circle" = 40 (Reverse Full Reduction)"Circle" = 50 (English Ordinal)

Of course, Pi (π) allows us to calculate the mathematics of the circle
The first three digits of Pi are 3.14

"Three point one four" = 224 (English Ordinal)

From the date the war began, to the date the war ended, was a span of exactly 224 weeks:224 Weeks, 0 Days

World War I ended 3 months, 14 days after the fourth anniversary of its beginning:3 Months, 14 Days

It’s said the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand is what led to the start of WWI"Archduke Franz Ferdinand" = 314 (LCH Kabbalah)

He was the heir to the throne of the"Austro-Hungarian Empire" = 314 (Reverse Ordinal)

An eclipse is the intersection of the two largest circles in the sky"Eclipse" = 314 (Satanic)

Ferdinand died 192 days after his 50th birthday:50 Years, 192 Days

"Circle" = 50 (English Ordinal)

"Eclipse" = 192 (Jewish)

Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este (Franz Ferdinand Carl Ludwig Joseph Maria; 18 December 1863 – 28 June 1914)

"Franz Ferdinand Carl Ludwig Joseph Maria" = 202 (Reverse Full Reduction)"Total solar eclipse" = 202 (English Ordinal)

Think about how there are 365 days in a year, but 366 days in a leap year. Franz Ferdinand’s full name was a tribute to this fact about our calendar:

"Franz Ferdinand Carl Ludwig Joseph Maria" = 365 (English Ordinal)"Franz Ferdinand Carl Ludwig Joseph Maria" = 366 (Jewish Ordinal)


"Pi" = 25 (English Ordinal)  "Pi" = 29 (Reverse Ordinal)

"Franz" = 25 (Reverse Full Reduction)Ferdinand was born in"Graz" = 25 (Full Reduction)

He was the presumptive heir to the throne for the"Austrian Empire" = 169 (English Ordinal)

Notice above how Pi is 16+9 in Ordinal and 29 in Reverse

"Austrian Empire" = 209 (Reverse Ordinal)

In Hebrew, solar eclipse sums to 209. The war began on the 209th day of the year:
"ליקוי חמה (Solar eclipse)" = 209 (Hebrew Gematria)

The word eclipse on its own sums to 156. That was also the date leaving 156 days on the calendar:"ליקוי (Eclipse)" = 156 (Hebrew Gematria)

This number is attributed in English gematria as well:"Eclipse" = 33 (Full Reduction)"Thirty-three" = 156 (English Ordinal)

156 DaysWWI ended exactly 156 days after the 1918 Great American coast-to-coast total solar eclipse:

This is also 22 weeks, 2 days  |  “Eclipse” = 222 (Extended)
This is also 5 months, 3 days  |  “Solar eclipse” = 53 (Reduction)


1331 is the number that represents a solar eclipse
The war ended on a date with 13/31 numerology

1+1 + 1+1 + 1+8 = 13(11) + (11) + 1+8 = 31

1331 has a Prime Factorization of 11 × 11 × 11
The armistice was signed in the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month
November 11th came to be known as Armistice Day
It was first celebrated in 1919

"One thousand three hundred thirty-one" = 1919 (Jewish)

It was 51 days before the first day of 191951 Days

World War I was also called the Great War

"World War I" = 51 (Full Reduction)

"Great War" = 51 (Reverse Full Reduction)

There are 19 years in the Metonic cycle"WWI" = 19 (Full Reduction)

Armistice Day = Metonic Cycle in 3 of 4 base ciphers
