Prince Harry drew the name for his Games from the poem “In­vic­tus” by Wil­liam Ernest Hen­ley. In­vic­tus is Latin for un­con­quered.

ZOOMER Magazine - - ADVOCACY -

Out of the night that cov­ers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank what­ever gods may be For my un­con­quer­able soul. In the fell clutch of cir­cum­stance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Un­der the blud­geon­ings of chance My head is bloody, but un­bowed. Be­yond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Hor­ror of the shade, And yet the men­ace of the years Finds and shall find me un­afraid. It mat­ters not how strait the gate, How charged with pun­ish­ments the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the cap­tain of my soul.
