Archaic swearword originating in England, originating from the even more archaic phrase 'By God's blood', but nobody really knows that or cares. DOESN'T mean 'fucking' you screwheads.. We use that word too!

British English equivalent to the American English swear word 'fucking'. It must be noted, however, that in Britain and Australia 'bloody' is considered to be much less offensive than 'fucking' is in America.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, its origins lie in a reference to the aristocratic rowdies of the Restoration (i.e., those of noble or aristocratic blood).
