Nostradamus, the 16th century French prophet, is perhaps one of the most well-thought of clairvoyants of all time. His predictions were arranged into poems of four lines, known as quatrains and collected into lists known as centuries. Scholars who have dedicated years of study to the verses have linked the predictions of Nostradamus with religious texts and other prophets to some of the most astonishing events in history.
The verses do not flow in any particular order, nor do they give exact dates, thus the jumbled predictions have to be pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle. Because of this it is difficult to establish which quatrains have a direct link and which period in history they refer to. The verses are complicated further by Nostradamus´ use of cryptic text, hidden messages disguised by codes to protect himself from persecution against the Catholic Inquisition.
Nostradamus repeatedly predicts events of world destructions, war, famine, disease and natural disasters. He also indicates the world can expect world leaders to cause more devastation than the planet as witnessed time and time again. He tells of a coming invasion of Europe by Muslims and the arrival of a third Antichrist, a man who promises to deliver greatness, but instead almost annihilates the entire planet.
Some researchers suggest Nostradamus was a true prophet and that his prophecies are genuine. Credited with accurately predicting numerous major world events including the assassinations of JFK and Princess Diana, the rise of antichrists Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler, the French Revolution, the collapse of the World Trade Centre and the Challenger Disaster, Nostradamus is now being closely linked with the 2012 “end of the world” prophecies cited by ancient cultures like the Mayan, the Hopi and Hindu texts.
What will Happen in 2012The debate surrounding the Mayan end date of 21 December 2012 is being fuelled by the quatrains of Nostradamus. His coded messages have lead to mass speculation there would be many accounts of upheaval inflicting the planet from the year 2009 to 2012. The rise in natural disasters during this time has added to the rising concern about what the near future has in store for us.
The 2012 doomsday scenario is a perfect fit for the ancient seer’s doom and gloom predictions. The prophecy of a great comet does have an uneasy echo to the return of Nibiru, and catastrophic natural disasters of earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions are also mirroring other 2012 predictions. There is also reference to catastrophic cosmic events like an asteroid colliding with the Earth, loss of the Planet’s Electro-Magnetic Shield and the predicted precession which is due to take place on 21 December 2012. And there is also repeated premonitions of a Third World War.
New Century ProphetJust as Nostradamus predicted his death, the disruption of his grave and
the violent end to the man who opened his tomb, the 16th century also
predicts the visions of another prophet that will emerge in the 21st
century and eclispe his own prophecies.
For five hundred years more they will hold notice
Of he who was the adornment of his time:
Then suddenly a great revelation given,
Which will render the people of that century quite content.
In his book, Nostradamus and the Final Age, Michael McClellan states that
predictions made by a 21st century prophet will satisfy the people of the
time. He estimates the date will be in 2066, 500 years after the death of
the Frenchman, and that the new prophecies will come from an influential
statesmen who resides in the new Atlantis.
That the planet is set for the emergence of a new prophecy sits well with
the idea that changes in the Cosmos and Earth’s transgression into the Age
of Aquarius will bring with it a heightened sense of awareness. Every human
being has the capacity for psychic ability though some people are more
attuned to it than others.
There are not many famous channelers or prophets that are well known today.
Other than entertainers like John Edward, the American channeler from the
hit TV show ‘Crossing over with John Edward,’ prophets don’t get much of
a mention in todays world. In fact, few are taken seriously anymore. That
is undoubtedly due to the commercial factor. Even mediums with a true gift
often fake it to save face in front of an audience.
Modern day psychics just don’t air their voice anymore. Is that because
they don’t get publicity, or is it because there aren’t any credible
psychics anymore? People are too quick to point an accusing finger and
call them mad. Or has technology destroyed our ability to connect with the
There have been few credible psychics since the late 19th Century and first
half of the 20th century when the likes of Madame Helena Blavatsky and
Edgar Cayce rose to prominence. In fact, before his death in 1945, the
latter predicted the shifting of the poles which astronomers and spiritual
leaders predict will happen some time over the next two years.
Century 8, Quatrain 77
The Antichrist very soon annihilates the three,
Twenty-seven years the blood of his war will last.
The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
With blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.
There has been a mass of speculation as to who the third antichrist will be though there is no dispute about the havoc he will reap upon the world. Many interpreters believed it was Saddam Hussein. After 9/11, the focus shifted to Osama Bin Laden. However, reports that the so-called mastermind of terror was killed by US forces at the end of April 2011 shed doubt on that particularly summary as well.
Nostradamus names the antichrist, ‘Mabus,’ which again has lead to much speculation about who it might be. George W. Bush and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were both earmarked as a joint antichrist by taking the first two letters of the Iranian leader, MA and joining them with the last three letters of the former US chief, BUS – Mabus. The words ‘clutching’ and ‘straws’ spring to mind.
Given the actions of Bush following the attack on New York, his lies about weapons of mass destruction, and the accusations aimed at him for the ‘inside job’ on the World Trade Center, it’s not difficult to understand why he would stand accused. The likelihood of Bush returning to the Whitehouse however is remote.
So, fingers then point at his successor, Barrack Obama. Combine the MA at the end of Obama with the BUS of Bush and you again have Mabus. Perhaps then the destroyer predicted in the quatrains is the American government. Given they have bombed 50 countries since the end of the 2nd World War you can be forgiven for believing that is the case.
Century 2 Quatrain 62
Mabus will soon die and there will come
A dreadful destruction of people and animals,
Suddenly vengeance will be revealed,
Hundred, hands, thirst and hunger when the comet will pass.
But what about the opening line predicting Mabus will die? Is he a victim of the antichrist, or does the so-called antichrist that is said to plunge the world into demonic turmoil die shortly after he has sparks a war?
One theory suggests that Mabus could in fact be the victim of the anti-Christ, which would potentially render all four of the assumptions outlined above as correct. The leading authorities deciphering the Nostradamus codes indicate that Mabus is killed at the beginning of the conflict and suggest the antichrist was indeed Saddam Hussein.
The law of anagram allows the decoder to reverse lower case letters, thus mabus can be altered to subam. Letters can also be reversed so the ‘b’ becomes a ‘d’ and by applying phonetics the ‘u’ becomes an ‘a’ in Arabic. Thus you get Sadam.
And this conclusion goes even further. In the last line, Nostradamus mentions the passing of a comet. In the week after Husseins hanging, Comet McNaught passed close to the sun. It was the brightest comet to be seen with the naked eye since 1965 and was visible for a fortnight.
In addition, Saddam Hussein’s leadership of Iraq lasted for 24 years until his capture by US forces in 2003. He spent three years in prison before his execution in December 2006. Could this be the 27 years Nostradamus refers to in Century 8 Quatrain 77 above?
Yet the same quatrain also suggests the third antichrist will wreak more havoc and destruction than ever before. So far, the Gulf War has not surpassed the bloodshed of either the Napoleonic wars or World War II.
Thus, the identity of the third anti-Christ remains a mystery, but if Nostradamus is correct in his assumptions, he hints the creator of such mass destruction and evil will actually emerge from the Middle East and not the West.
Antichrist: Part II
Could Nostradamus have prophesized a third antichrist? If so, is the time of his coming almost upon us? In the first part of “The coming of the Antichrist” we discussed the possibility of a world leader from the last decade. We discussed whether Mabus was the antichrist himself, or merely a catalyst for the antichrist to rise. The results were inconclusive.
So we must broaden our search and taking the lead of Nostradamus it seems apparent our search for the forthcoming antichrist is in the Middle East.
Out of the country of Greater Arabia
Shall be born a strong master of Mohammed,
He will enter Europe wearing a blue turban.
He will be the terror of mankind.
Never more horror.
There are several strong candidates that fit the bill. Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestine National Authority for example can be considered a prime candidate to spark of a third world war and the emergence of an antichrist. Perhaps he is Mabus who Nostradamus’ predicts “..will soon die.”
Mahmoud Abbas can be deciphered as Mabus using anagram codes and given that Palestine is in a volatile position and poorly protected against stronger forces, Abbas would be left exposed should a full-scale war break out with Isreal. However, Nostradamus doesn’t mention Palestine or their principle enemy, Israel in his prophecies, but instead indicates the antichrist will come from elsewhere.
Century 3 Quatrain 27
The Libyan Prince will be powerful in the West,
the French will become so inflamed of Arabs,
learned in letters he will agree
to translate the Arab language into French
The reference to a ‘Libyan Prince’ can only lead to speculation about one of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s four sons. The strongest candidate is the heir apparent, Saif Al-Islam, a well educated diplomat with a name that means “Sword of Islam.”
As Nostradamus indicates, the “Prince” will be highly educated (“learned in letters”) and will be influential in France. Saif Al-Islam is fluent in French, English and German. He has a B.Sc in Engineering Libya’s top University as well as being educated in the London School of Economics.
His talent for diplomacy and negotiations were highlighted during his role in the release of western hostages and considered westernised, Saif has influential friends in politics and finance, including Nathaniel Rothschild and Lord Mandelson. He also mediated in the sale of arms to France.
Yet taking into consideration Saif Al-Islam seemingly good nature, high education and portrayal as a peacemaker, why would anyone earmark him as an antichrist? The answer could lie in some of Nostradamus’ other quatrains that indicate the invasion of southern Europe and the destruction of France. Could the friendly approach by the Libyan Prince predicted in Quatrain 3.26 above merely be the lull before the storm before “Vengeance will soon be revealed,” as mentioned in the ‘Mabus’ quatrain of 2.62.
Century 2 Quatrain 29
The Easterner will leave his seat,
To pass the Apennine mountains to see Gaul:
He will transpire the sky, the waters and the snow,
And everyone will be struck with his rod.
Century 9 Quatrain 44
Leave, leave Geneva every last one of you,
Saturn will be converted from gold to iron,
Raypoz will exterminate all who oppose him,
Before the coming the sky will show signs.
The two quatrains above indicate the bringer of evil will travel from somewhere in the East and leave a wake of destruction across Italy and Switzerland before arriving in France. And matters get worse as Nostradamus predicts Muslim forces advance into France and demolish every village, suburb and city in their path.
Century 2 Quatrain 4
From Monaco as far as Sicily
All the coast demolished and desolate
There shall not be any more suburb, city, nor village
That the Muslim invaders shall leave undone
Yet despite the speculation linking Saif Al-Islam as the antichrist there is nothing in the quatrains that link the Libyan Prince as the antichrist. Nor has Saif Al-Islam been deciphered as Mabus. So could it be that the demon will spring from elsewhere in the Middle East? Many decoders believe so.
Century 3 Quatrain 99
In the grassy fields of Alein and Varneigne
Upon Mount Lebron near Durance
Conflict between two sides shall be very fierce
Mesopotamie shall fall on French soil
Though the Frenchman predicts Muslims will eventually fall in his motherland, the mention of Mesopotamia can only mean the invaders come from the region that is now Iraq and Iran.
Many commentators look towards the current Iranian leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the antichrist, though some theorists look beyond the frontman and seek out the monster in the shadows.
Muslim cleric Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is the spiritual adviser to the President, and, some commentators consider, the true leader of Iran. That his name is pronounced Maybah adds to suspicions he could be the Mabus Nostradamus talks about in quatrain 2.62.
Renowned for taking a hardline, it was Mesbah Yazdi who called for Iran to build nuclear weapons and oversees the uranium enrichment program. After rigging the election to ensure Ahmadinejad’s success he cracked down on protestors by using extreme force. Considered a practitioner for violence he adopted the nickname, Professor Crocodile.
Mesbah Yazdi has also been influential in packing the Assembly of Experts with loyalists and is thought to have ambitions of replacing Ali Khamenei as Supreme Leader thus putting him into a position of power from where he could instigate worldwide destruction. Look out for him wearing a blue turban!
We have presented some modern day candidates for the anti-christ according to the predictions of Nostradamus, but it is impossible to see exactly. We have learned that new candidates previously unseen can appear almost out of nowhere and the effects of these unknown unknowns can be potent.
Antichrist: Part III
To support their claims scholars point to two earlier predictions made by Nostradamus that foretold of previous antichrists that would seduce their people with promises of greatness before leading them into a reign of terror. The first was Emperor Napoleon.
Century 1 Quatrain 60
An Emperor will be born near Italy
Who will cost the Empire dearly.
It will be said when his allies are seen
That he is less a Prince than a butcher.
Napoleon was born on Corsica, just off the west coast of Italy. He went on to become the emperor of France and in his attempts to dominate Europe millions of people were slaughtered. Even his supporters saw him as a butcher.
From a simple soldier he will rise to the empire,
From the short robe he will attain the long.
Great swarms of bees shall arise.
Napoleon trained as an artillery officer in the French army and having climbed through the ranks of the military staged a coup d’etat and in 1804 declared himself the first Emperor of France. He adopted the beehive as his imperial crest. Some scholars even go as far to claim Nostradamus mentioned Napoleon by name in a series of cryptic clues.
Century 8 Quatrain 1
PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood,
To swim in praise, the great one to flee to the confluence.
He will refuse entry to the Piuses,
The depraved ones and the Durance will keep them imprisoned.
PAU, NAY, Oloron are three towns in southern France, and by re-scrambling the letter they spell Napaulon Roy, which in French translates to Napoleon the King. That Nostradamus capitalizes the place names is further indication that the vision he was predicting warranted emphasis.
Further in the same quatrain, the mention of ‘More of fire than of the blood’ refers to Napoleon’s non-noble lineage. Although he was born to parents with noble ancestry he had no rights to the throne. Also, the line ‘refuse entry to the Piuses’ refers to Popes Pius VI and VII, both of whom were imprisoned by Napoleon. Others scholars also point to
Century 4 Quatrain 54 where Nostradamus states:
Of the name which no Gallic King ever had
Never was there so fearful a thunderbolt,
Italy, Spain and the English trembling,
Very attentive to a woman and foreigners
Some scholars go even further and claim Nostradamus even predicted Napoleon’s ill-fated invasion of Russia and the destruction of Moscow when he wrote:
A great troop shall come through Russia.
The destroyer shall ruin a city.
But Napoleon later drove his troops too far into Russia and was consumed by the treacherous conditions of winter.
The rear guard will make defense.
The exhausted ones will die in the white territory.
Nostradamus even went on to predict the end for Napoleon when he wrote:
The great Empire will soon be exchanged for a small place.
Which will soon begin to grow.
A small place of tiny area in the middle of which
He will come to lay down his scepter.
The captive prince, conquered, is sent to Elba;
He will sail across the Gulf of Genoa to Marseilles.
By a great effort of the foreign forces he is overcome,
Though he escaped the fire, his bees yield blood by the barrel.
Napoleon was exiled to the small island of Elba but after reforming a small army of around 200,000 men escaped for 100 days. The coalitions of Britain and Prussia confronted Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo where he defeated and exiled to St. Helena.
Antichrist: Part IVContinuing our series of antichrist prophecies, Nostradamus Predicts presents the second antichrist foreseen by French visionary as, “one who was worse than any that had gone before him.” That man was of course, Adolf Hitler.
From the depths of the West of Europe,
A young child will be born of poor people,
He who by his tongue will seduce a great troop;
His fame will increase towards the realm of the East.
Hitler was born in Austria to parents who had come from poor peasant families. He went on to become the Chancellor of Germany due to his profound ability to capture the attention of an audience with his rousing and passionate speeches. It would be these same oratory skills that would seduce a nation into believing he would return Germany to her former glory. He was tagged as “the new messiah.” Instead he brought Europe to its knees.
A captain of Germany shall come to yield himself by false hope,
So that his revolt shall cause great bloodshed.
World War II cost the lives of over 60 million people. After the Wall Street crash of 1929, known famously as Black Wednesday, the world was in an all-time economic low. Hitler promised the German people that he would rescue the country from depression so she would once again rise to greatness. He promised more employment. His ploy was to encourage women to stay at home and have children by offering state benefis, thus freeing up more jobs for men. His plan worked. In 1933 he was appointed head of the country, Germany saw a sharp rise of employment and there was a mini baby boom. Once the war started, Germans joked they had donated a soldier to Hitler.
He shall come to tyrannize the land.
He shall raise up a hatred that had long been dormant.
The child of Germany observes no law.
Cries, and tears, fire, blood, and battle.
One of the most shocking events of World War II was the treatment of Jews. Hitler had a longstanding history of anti-Semitism and accused Jews of betraying Germany in the First World War and ruining Germans as a nation with their secrecy and greed. As early as 1935 Hitler had imposed a number of restrictions on Jewish citizens living in Germany and had persuaded German people to report their Jewish neighbors. By the time the war started Jews were forced into hiding. It had become so unsafe for them, they feared making themselves known to German people in case they were reported and sent to a labor camp.
Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,
When the child of Germany observes nothing.
In this quatrain, the ‘beasts’ Nostradamus refers to are the allied forces who eventually defeated Hitler and ended the war. Though the prophet is one letter out with the naming of the second antichrist, the misspelling is actually a subtle disguise as Hister is the ancient name for the river Danube, and Hitler grew up in Braunau on the banks of the River Danube.
So it seems Nostradamus was pretty accurate in his predictions when it came to identifying, and even naming the men who would cause so much devastation and bloodshed. So are the clues that scholars are picking out in relation to the third antichrist true and if so how accurate are the scholars in terms of timing? Is the time now or way into the future? More importantly, will anybody predict who the third antichrist is in time for us to stop them destroying us all?
Nostradamus is the only prophet to predict the coming of an antichrist, the politicians prophet Jeane Dixon did as well.
Collapse of the World Trade CenterDid Nostradamus predict the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11? The question is open to debate, partly due to interpretations of the French prophet’s cryptic messages, but also due to bogus verses circulated to email boxes after the events of September 11th 2001.
“In the City of God there will be a great thunder, Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,While the fortress endures, the great leader will succumb”,
- Nostradamus 1654
Though the style is very much in keeping with Nostradamus, there are some fundamental flaws in the above verse. For starters it is attributed to Nostradamus in 1654. The Frenchman died in 1566. Secondly, the verse does not categorically refer to New York. The City of God for example has more of a connection with Mecca or the Vatican than the Big Apple.
Needless to say then, this alleged quatrain was not written by Nostradamus, but by Neil Marshall, a student at Brock University. He was writing an article titled, “A Critical Analysis of Nostradamus” and was making a valid point that the interpretations of Nostradamus´ quatrains are so vague they are open to any interpretation that can be attributed to a specific event after it has occurred.
So let´s take a look at some quatrains that were written by the French seer that have subsequently been linked with the attack on the World Trade Center and consider whether the predictions offered by Nostradamus relate to the 9/11 attacks. The most notorious quatrain reads:
Century 6 Quatrain 97
At forty-five degrees the sky will burn, Fire to approach the great new city: In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up, When one will want to demand proof of the Normans.
The reference to the ´Great New City, ´ can of course apply to many cities, though New York is undoubtedly one of them. New York got its name in the mid-17th Century when the British traded the peninsula with the Dutch who themselves had only acquired the land in 1604. It is located 41 to 45 degrees north of the equator.
The third line needs no explanation as flames leapt up instantly when the planes hit the towers, but it is the fourth line in this quatrain that courses the most perplexity – but also the most interesting.
“When one will want to demand proof of the Normans”
Normans originated in France and the Knights Templar was founded by a Frenchman by the name of Hugues de Payen, and many other French noblemen were part of the order. The order spread its wings across Europe and their legacy is still evident today, particularly in France as well as Great Britain and Italy.
How this fits into the quatrain and the subsequent events of 9/11 is that the Knights Templar are said to have excavated the site of King Solomon´s Temple. The bible states that when God asked King Solomon for anything he wished, he was so pleased by Solomon´s request for wisdom that he gave him all the wisdom in the world. This event is considered to be the origins of esoteric wisdom. Given the Knights Templar also practiced esoteric wisdom which we must presume they stole from the Holy Land during the crusades against Muslim enemies, is there a link to the present day friction between the West and Muslim countries. Consider also that esoteric wisdom is the Holy Grail and things make a little more sense.
Another common link is found in Century 10 Quatrain 72:
Century 10 Quatrain 72
The year 1999, seventh month, From the sky will come a great King of Terror:
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols, Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
To the untrained eye, the date in the first line does not fit 9 11 01. Scholars that are trained in codes however tell a different story. Cryptanalysts say that in code breaking terms the numbers can be reversed so that the 9 becomes a 1 and vice versa. Therefore 1999 becomes 1 11 9. This figure is then reversed to become 9 11 1 (9/11/01).
The reference to the seventh month has also been interpreted to mean Sept, the French word for seven and the English abbreviation for September and the King of Terror coming from the skies is self explanatory. So what of the latter part of the quatrain?
King of the Mongols can only refer to Genghis Kahn who founded the Mongol Empire in the early 13th century. Has his spirit been brought back to life or has the idea of re-building an Empire being ignited in someone of Mongol descent – perhaps the third antichrist?
Again the final line poses a problem though Mars could clearly mean war, Mars being the Roman God of War. In that case we are looking for a leader who came to power by “good luck,” before the war – and is expected to come to power again after the war. Presuming Mars is the war in Iraq, God help us if George W. Bush comes into power again! That Bush is unlikely to be voted in by American citizens (please America) the only way he will regain the presidency is by luck.
Another quatrain that appears from time to time is:
Century 1 Quatrain 87
Earth shaking fire from the center of the Earth Will cause tremors around the New City.
Two great rocks will war for a long time, Then Arethusa will redden a new river.
This is a direct translation taken from French, and at first glance it doesn´t seem relevant. Some scholars though exchange the word “Earth,” for “World” and the centre of the world or World Trade Center has more relevance.
Two great “rocks” or mass of land, obviously refers to countries. One is undoubtedly the USA. The other could be any number of candidates. Iraq and Iran is the area habited by Mesopotamia where civilisation began with the Sumerians. China has a long history of greatness and is currently returning to greatness. If World War III breaks out we can assume it will last for a long time, and will undoubtedly be sourced from the 9/11 attacks.
Another quatrain we can tie to the collapse of the World trade Center is:
Century 2 Quatrain 70
The dart from the sky will make its extension, Deaths speaking: great execution. The stone in the tree, the proud nation restored, Noise, human monster, purge expiation.
It´s not difficult to see the connection to 9/11 in the first two lines, but what does Nostradamus mean by “The Stone in the Tree”? Some scholars suggest this is a visual reference to throwing a stone into a tree causing fruit or conkers to fall as debris fell from the twin towers. The Proud nation can only be America whereas the “Noise” coming from the 9/11 movement are seeking atonement (expiation) from the “human monster” that is the US government for killing their own citizens and trying to blame it on Muslim terrorists.
Century 2 Quatrain 35
The fire by night will take hold in two lodgings, Several within suffocated and roasted. It will happen near two rivers as one: Sun, Sagittarius and Capricorn all will be reduced.
Here again there is an obvious connection to the fatal attacks on the twin towers in New York as Manhattan stands between the Hudson River and the East River, though several thousand fatalities amounts to substantially more than “several.”
Then we have the concluding line. It is a clear reference to astrology and tenuous links have been made to Sagittarius – the archer – which could appear like a plane, and Saturn representing finance. Nostradamus was a master of astrology, but most people aren´t so why would he need to disguise astrological references so densely. He would surely have mentioned Mercury which NYC was in at the time of September 11th.
Compelling evidence there may be, but none of the quatrains conclusively indicate the collapse of the World Trade Centers without liberal interpretation. Which is exactly what a certain Neil Marshall was trying to establish before his argument was used as a hoax Nostradamus prediction.
The Death of Princess DianaNostradamus is widely regarded as one of the great prophets of all time. It is believed by scholars that many of his predictions have come true. Among the many interpreters of Nostradamus is London astrologer, Tadd Mann who proposes the French Seer prophesised the death of Princess Diana.
Century 2 Quatrain 28
The penultimate son of the man with the Prophets name
Will bring Diana to her day of rest:
He will wander far because of a frantic head,
And delivering a great people from subjection.
On the 31st August 1997, Princess Diana died in a fatal car crash along with her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, the second of Mohamed Al Fayed, the man with the prophet´s name. Mr Al Fayed was so convinced that the death of his son and the princess was a conspiracy that he embarked on a witch hunt to prove their deaths were not an accident. Al Fayed´s conviction and determination to bring his son´s death to justice exposed the British Royal family as the conspirators and for the first time in history, open the eyes of a subjected public to the evils amongst Britain´s elite.
Even without the prompts of Mohamed Al Fayed however, the British public vented their frustration against Queen Elizabeth II for her lack of support and empathy towards the death of her former daughter-in-law. At the time of the accident, the Queen was on one of her summer sojourns in Balmoral. Her defence for not returning to London was so she could protect her two grandson´s William and Harry from the furore in the nation´s capital.
The anger of the British nation was also directed at Prince Charles, “the hated prince,” for his treatment of Diana and accusations were angled at him for his involvement in Diana´s death.
Century 2 Quatrain 7
The minor son of the great and hated Prince,
He will have a great touch of leprosy at the age of twenty:
Of grief his mother will die very sad and emaciated,
And he will die where the loose flesh falls.
When Diana died, Prince Charles flew over to Paris to recover the body. He ordered that the body of Princess Diana was to be embalmed before a post-mortem could be carried out. This broke the law on two counts. Anybody who has died of unnatural causes must undergo a post-mortem. The examination must be undertaken before the body is embalmed as the formaldehyde in the lotion makes the tests inconclusive. Because Charles ordered the body to be embalmed Diana never underwent a post-mortem.
It was claimed by Mohamed Al-Fayed that Diana was pregnant with the child of his son, Dodi. It was considered inconceivable that the future King of England should have a Muslim half-brother. However, because a post-mortem could not be carried out on Diana, this claim could not be proven. In addition, the only person who can order a corpse to be embalmed is the next of kin. As Prince Charles and Princess Diana were no longer married, Charles is not the next-of-kin and under European law had no right to order that her body was embalmed.
Nostradamus mentions “The minor son of the great and hated Prince, will have a great touch of leprosy at the age of twenty.” The minor son of Prince Charles is believed to be Prince Harry, but it was Prince William who continued the work of his mother at the Leprosy Mission. However, examine photos of Charles, William and Harry and only two of them look alike. It is known that Princess Diana had an affair with Major James Hewitt, and though the Royal family claim this did not occur until 1985 or 1986 depending on which report you read, the likeness of Prince Harry to Hewitt is far more striking than it is with Prince Charles.
Century I Quatrain 84
The moon obscured in deep gloom,
her brother becomes bright red in colour.
The great one hidden for a long time in the shadows,
will hold the blade in the bloody wound.
With the use of the word, “moon,” in the above quatrain it is likely that Nostradamus was referring to the Goddess Diana from Roman mythology. Indeed, there are many similarities between Princess Diana and the ancient Roman Goddess of hunting, childbirth and protector of the weak. Princess Diana gave birth to the future King of England and was involved with numerous charities including leprosy and the banning of land mines.
Furthermore, the Goddess Diana appears in religion depicted as the Virgin Mary and the Princess had to be a virgin in order to marry Prince Charles. Princess Diana was married in St. Paul´s Cathedral, a former pagan site dedicated to the Roman Goddess and is buried in the Spencer family estate in a tomb surrounded by groves – also associated with the Goddess Diana. Incidentally, the Princess died in the Pont de L´Alma tunnel, a sacred site upon which the Merovingian Knights built a temple dedicated to the Goddess Diana.
After Diana´s death, her brother Earl Spencer became red in the face for two reasons. One was in anger towards the paparazzi who were blamed were chasing Diana to her death. The other was because he had fallen out with his sister and publicly accused her of having mental health issues. It was not unusual for the Princess to claim she felt her life was in danger and even wrote a letter saying her husband was “planning an accident in my car.” So much for her mental health issues.
In the third line, the “great one hidden for a long time in the shadows,” could refer to several of the Royal Family, whether it be the Queen or Prince Charles. Until Diana´s death and the numerous mythologies and connections that were found relating to Freemasonry, it was a little known fact that the Queen and prince Charles were 33rd degree masons – thought by many commentators today to be the people that lurk in the shadows.
Century 10 Quatrain 98
For the merry maid the bright splendor
Will shine no longer, for long will she be without salt:
With merchants, bullies, wolves odious,
All confusion universal monster.
Princess Diana was the most photographed women in the world and the most well-liked of all the royals. She was indeed the bright splendour. In the days of the ancient Romans, anything described as “salt” meant that it had great value or worth. Though Diana was regarded this way by the world, she had no worth in the eyes of the Royal family or the conspirators that served to kill her. Her divorce to Prince Charles effectively gave up her right to be Queen of England.
“Merchants, bullies, wolves odious, all confusion universal monster,” can only apply to the Masonic illuminati that conspired to kill Princess Diana. It is a well-known fact that Diana was on a personal crusade to ban the manufacturing of land mines, a multi-billion dollar business to the arms traders and war makers of this world – “the universal monster.”
On 17th September 1997, Diana had arranged for a treaty to be signed by the heads of state banning the use of landmines. Bill Clinton, the US President at the time publicly announced he would be in Oslo to support the Diana´s treaty. The treaty was indeed signed three weeks after the Princesses death, but Clinton failed to show. It´s no coincidence that many of the arms dealers, (merchants), bullies (CIA) and wolves (powerful families) of the illuminati reside in the United States.
The Assasination of the Kennedy BrothersThe French Prophet and Astrologer, Nostradamus has captivated the imaginations of scholars and interpreters for generations; some with just cause and strong arguments, others wildly throwing dirt hoping to make it stick. You could say the theory that Nostradamus predicted the assassination of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy falls into the latter – but that is for you to make your own mind.
If the scholars are right that Nostradamus could see into the future and prophecy major events that would shake the world, you would not expect him to overlook such a monumental occasion of a United States President been assassinated in front of 1000´s of people that had lined the streets of Dallas to see their president in the flesh. Little did they know they would see more than his flesh, but did Nostradamus?
Scholars attribute a couple of quatrains purport to the assassination of JFK. Let´s deal with the most significant first:
Century 1 Quatrain 27
The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,
An evil deed foretold by the bearer of a petition.
According to the prediction, another falls at night time.
Conflict at Reims, London and a pestilence in Tuscany.
Interpreting the above quatrain scholarly theorists attribute this to the actual shooting, the “great man” obviously being the targeted president and using thunderbolt as the analogy of a gunshot. Kennedy was assassinated at noon on 22nd November 1963 thus the time of day is accurate.
“An evil deed foretold by the bearer of a petition” is thought to refer to the numerous death threats Kennedy received whilst in office. However, it could also refer to Jeanne Dixon, a prominent American prophet that has been featured on Nostradamus Predictions. As discussed in those articles, Dixon predicted the assassinations of both Kennedy´s brothers (and had close ties with J Edgar. Hoover), thus it could be her that Nostradamus is referring to as bearing the petition.
In the third line of the quatrain above the prediction that “another falls at night” could relate to Robert Kennedy who was assassinated in the early hours of the morning of June 5, 1968 shortly after giving a campaign speech to his supporters in the Embassy Hotel in Los Angeles. Although we can agree Robert Kennedy was shot “at night time,” why would Nostradamus predict two separate events five years apart without making reference to the time lapse?
So what of the final line, “Conflict in Reims, London, and Pestilence in Tuscany.” In 1968, there were indeed riots in London and Paris – Reims being a figure of speech representing the whole of France – and two years earlier Tuscany suffered floods after which authorities’ feared pestilence.
The riots were protests against civil liberties and were not related to either of the Kennedy assassinations and were not just limited to London and Paris, but also Rome, Poland, Germany, Argentina and many states in the US. The Tuscan floods were in 1966 and pestilence was avoided.
Again we find the timeline for the explanation of the theory is jumbled. Was Nostradamus a little of with his future clock or are scholars shaping the quatrains to fit their theory? It´s difficult to say, but then scholars back up their theory with this:
Century 6 Quatrain 37
The ancient work will be accomplished,
and from the roof evil ruin will fall on to the great man.
Dead, they will accuse an innocent of the deed,
The guilty one hidden in the misty copse.
We know from the secret service reports and the “God´s Honest Truth” Warren Report written by state senators, the ex-Directors of the CIA and the World Bank together with the future puppet US President Gerald Ford that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in blowing the President´s brains out from a book depository despite not being an expert sniper – “from the roof evil ruin will fall on the great man”.
Despite the upstanding, honest and incorruptible personnel on the Warren Committee, crack-pot conspiracy theorists have the audacity to insult their superior intelligence, expertise and judgement by claiming Oswald was framed. And Nostradamus prophesized the same: “Dead, they will accuse an innocent of the deed.” Oswald of course was shot dead by Jack Ruby two days after supposedly killing the President.
The conspiracy theorists also claim the CIA was involved in the assassination of John. F Kennedy because he wanted to pull troops out of Vietnam and support the Civil Rights Movement – which of course is no good to the scheming money men in the senate, world banks and future presidents – yes these are upstanding members of society we are supposed to believe because they have no reason to lie. So who is “the guilty one hidden in the copse” that Nostradamus mentions?
We´ve all heard of the second gunman on the grassy knoll, which conspiracy theorists – and witnesses on the day – believe was the real assassin of the president. Of course there are so many theories about one of the greatest murders of all time that the misinformation masks the truth and the real murderers get away with the crime. Just as they always do. But did Nostradamus Predict the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers? That´s perhaps as open for debate as the murders themselves.
World War IThere´s a lot of speculation about Nostradamus predicting World War 3 at the minute and with the world walking on egg shells as riots erupt all over the world, the United States and Britain continue to aggravate Iraq and Afghanistan and the China posing an economical threat to the European and American financial systems, there is hardly any wonder. It must be said that after studying the prophecies of the French Seer, Nostradamuspredictions.org also concluded the world could be on the brink of destruction at some point in the future.
That Nostradamus also prophesied World War II and as we shall discuss here, World War I, claims made by scholars about the likelihood of a Third World War seemingly carry a lot of weight. Though having said that, for such a major event in history, scholars only quote one prophecy of Nostradamus that they attribute to World War I.
Century 1 Quatrain 64
They will think they have seen the Sun at night
When they will see the pig half-man:
Noise, song, battle, fighting in the sky perceived,
And one will hear brute beasts talking.
The major clue Nostradamus drops into the above quatrain which helped to decipher its meaning comes in the third line when he mentions, “noise, song, battle, fighting in the sky perceived.” Of course, noise related to the explosion of bombs and between battles soldiers would sing in the trenches, but it is his reference to “fighting in the sky,” that is the real clincher.
World War I was the first time enemy sides engaged in aerial combat. The technology at the time was no more advanced than to accommodate fragile biplanes, planes fixed with two wings, on over the other, but nonetheless they were used as fighting machines to drop bombs. There was also the invention of Led Zeppelins, the helium airships such as the Hindenburg which were used to spy on enemy movements.
So once the key was identified it didn´t take much for scholars to decode the other versus of the quatrain. Nostradamus poetically refers to explosions as people believing they will see the sun night which is easy enough to interpret, but what of the Pig half-man he mentions in the second line. Here again, Nostradamus is perhaps referring to the aerial battle, though more precisely the attire of the pilots.
The helmets and face masks of World War I pilots pushed up the nose up slightly so that it appeared like that of a pig´s snout. Also the slick fabric of the headgear covered the head of hair and gave the appearance of clean skin much like that of a pig.
In the final line of the quatrain Nostradamus uses the expression, “brute beasts,” and indicates they are talking. Though moving away from pigs he has retained the image of beasts to stress the savage behaviour man had become accustomed to. Walk-talkies and radios were also used in the First World War and the French prophet could see them talking, perhaps the pig-like pilots in their headgear.
That Nostradamus is referring to World War I in the above quatrain is open to speculation as there is nothing specific that unequivocally suggests a war in Europe. Though the scholars could be on to something with regards the first known battle of the skies, it seems apparent that if Nostradamus had predicted such a significant event as World War I he would have made greater reference to it in other quatrains – and certainly the trenches would have got a mention.World War I
Did Nostradamus Really Predict World War II?The Mayan calendar has led to mass speculation that the World is on the brink of destruction and now people are turning to the quatrains of Nostradamus to see if they can find clues. It is true that there are many references to the possibility of a Third World War and Nostradamuspredictions.org has proposed its own version of interpretation in our 2012 Doomsday: World War III series, but is Nostradamus really right or is decoding his quatrains open for interpretation by anybody.
So, in looking for clues about a possible World War II, let´s take a look at the French Seers predictions of World War II and discuss whether there is any true grounding in the quatrains or whether it is merely the imagination, words skills and knowledge of history the scholars really play with.
It has been said by scholars that the French Seer accurately predicted World War I and World War II. Nostradamuspredictions.org has previously documented its findings about World War I and came to the conclusion that Nostradamus would surely have made more references to the Great War if that is indeed something he was predicting, particularly given the amount of potential references to World War III. The same principle would surely also be applied for World War II, yet scholar´s only bring two to the table.
Century 4 Quatrain 68
The two greatest ones of Asia and of Africa,
From the Rhine and Lower Danube they will be said to have come,
Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian side.
The first line of the above quatrain speaks of great countries from Asia and Africa. The first must refer to Japan who were allies of Hitler´s Nazi Germany, but although much of the war was fought on African soil between the British and American forces against the Wehrmacht, there were no African countries directly in World War II.
Again in the second line, the Rhine and the Lower Danube is only partially correct. The Rhine is a reference to Germany though the lower Danube runs through Hungary and the former Yugoslavia. Though Hungary was a member of the axis power and sided with Hitler, Yugoslavia was invaded and divided between Germany, Italy and Hungary so again is not entirely accurate.
Malta was the centerpiece for British naval forces and the “Ligurian side” is on the west coast of Italy, so whereas the quatrain is accurate with the location they were again on opposing sides and don´t really ring true as an accurate prophecy.
Century 2 Quatrain 24
Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers:
Greater part of the army will be against Hister
The greater one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage
When the Germany child will observe nothing.
Some scholars classify that “Beasts ferocious with hunger” is a reference to the German army, (others say he means the allied army) “will swim across rivers.” Note Nostradamus doesn´t mention which rivers so could be anywhere. However, in the next line he does mention “the greater part of the army will be against Hister.”
As Nostradamus.org identified in the article Antichrist: Part IV, the word “Hister” is widely believed to be a play on Hitler´s name. However, here again we see scholars offering different theories, as the word Hister is the ancient Latin word for the Danube – which purports to the opening sentence. Thus again we possibly have reference to Yugoslavia and Hungary above. Yet World War II was mostly fought in France, around the Rhone, Seine, and Rhine.
When people are proposing their theories about the Nostradamus predicting World War II, they often pair it with the rise of Hitler, which, unlike the two proposals above is a much more airtight theory.
Century 3 Quatrain 35
From the depths of the West of Europe,
A young child will be born of poor people,
He who by his tongue will seduce a great troop;
His fame will increase towards the realm of the East.
Hitler was born to Austrian peasants by hoodwinked an entire nation to believing he was the person to lead them glory and restore the pride of Germany. Hitler was also well known in Russia and Japan.
An interesting point to make is that during the Second World War, Nostradamus quatrains were dropped over Europe predicting the defeat of France. They were fake, but were used for propaganda, because predictions of a prophet are what people believed in. Or in other words, it is what the elite want you to believe. Are we seeing the same principles today with the Mayan Calendar doomsday theories and the prophecies of Nostradamus predicting World War III?
Nostradamus Predicts Great Fire of London ConspiracyFor scholars there can be little doubt that the French prophet, Nostradamus predicted the Great fire of London in 1666. Nostradamuspredictions.org is not in disagreement with them, though we suspect the French seer was trying to tell us more than scholars are willing to interpret.
History records that the fire ravished London and started in the Pudding Lane bakery belonging to Thomas Farriner (or Farynor). What mainstream historians don´t tell you is that Thomas Farriner was the Royal bakers to King Charles II. With this in mind, and armed with the knowledge that the poor judgement of the Lord Mayor of London, Sir Thomas Bloodworth contributed to the widespread destruction of the fire, conspiracy theorists can be forgiven for thinking that the fire was started by accident. And Nostradamus´ quatrain on the subject supports the theory.
Century 2 Quatrain 51
The blood of the just will be demanded of London
Burnt by fire in the year ’66
The ancient Lady will fall from her high place
And many of the same sect will be killed.
The official story of the Great Fire of London is that the fire started when a neglected oven fire in a baker´s shop in Pudding Lane caught hold of a wood stack. The fire could have been confined to a small area and easily controlled by the fire brigade had the Mayor of London, Sir Thomas Bloodworth given the order pull down buildings that would have starved the flames of fuel. This method was the most common practice at the time, but Bloodworth refused to give the order, commenting instead, “a woman might piss it out.” The fire raged for another three days and consumed 13,200 houses and 87 parish churches including St. Paul´s Cathedral, or in other words, 75 per cent of the city.
Before becoming mayor of London, Bloodworth was a wealthy merchant and a member of the mercantile guild of the Company of Vintners which received a royal charter in the 14th century. Though it had a monopoly on wine imports and was the most powerful company in the wine trade, Vintners did not have a licence giving them the right to sell wine. So here we can already establish the corruption of the mayor and the royal family.
So why did Bloodworth not give the order for the fire brigade to follow common practice and tear down buildings to prevent the fire from spreading? The answer can only be insurance, to raise taxes for the rebuilding process and to blame the fire on the Catholics – which is exactly what happened.
The Nostradamus Prophecy
The man accused for starting the fire was a simple-minded French man named, Robert Hubert who is said to have confessed to the crime and was working as an agent of the Pope. The only evidence against him was his confession and he was subsequently hanged. However, the evidence does not add up.
He initially said that he started the fire in Westminster, but the fire didn´t reach that far. He later changed his story to Pudding Lane and during his trial retracted his entire confession, presumably because by that time it dawned on him what was really happening. After his death, it was established that he did not arrive in London until two days after the fire started thus could not be the culprit. The matter was never investigated.
So the people of protestant London were lead to believe their city had been burned down by the Catholics and the notion was set in stone by being carved into the monument at Bank, with the inscription: “The burning of this Protestant City was begun and carried on by the treachery and malice of the Popish faction…”
So let´s take another look at the quatrain.
Century 2 Quatrain 51
The blood of the just will be demanded of London
Burnt by fire in the year ’66
The ancient Lady will fall from her high place
And many of the same sect will be killed.
In the opening line, “The blood of the just will be demanded of London” refers to the protestants seeking revenge on the Catholics. Though there was some retribution among rival faiths, only one Catholic death is recorded. In the third line, “the ancient lady will fall from her high place,” again refers to Catholism, “the ancient lady,” as does “many of the same sect will die.”
And it is here in the last two lines that Nostradamus supports the claims made by conspiracy theories that the Great Fire of London was not an accident, but was an act of terrorism by the aristocratic rulers to determine the way people think.
In 17th Century England small Catholic communities lived peacefully. The Protestant religion was not in any obvious danger from them and there was very little trouble between the two sects. In Europe however, the Spanish Inquisition had been wreaking havoc for centuries and European rulers were gearing up for another war that England would inevitably be involved with. Sure enough, the following year in 1667, England joined France in a war against the Hapsburg run Spanish Netherlands.
Under the rule of Louis XIV, France was the new Catholic superpower in Europe, and King Charles II of England was pro-France. What the English aristocracy feared was that France might use its military power to impose Catholicism on England which would give them the upperhand for political absolutism, thereby the wealthy landowners, like Sir Thomas Bloodworth and his chums would lose their land.
The idea of the anti-Catholic belief was reinforced some years after the Great Fire of London with the introduction of the Popish Plot. It was rumoured that the Catholics were plotting to kill King Charles II and re-establish Catholicism in England. Interestingly enough, though Charles claimed to be protestant during his lifetime, upon his deathbed he converted to Catholicism.
So what we find in the events surrounding the Great Fire of London, and the prediction made by Nostradamus, is an attack by the rulers on their own people and subsequently blamed on somebody else so that public opinion would be persuaded to go to war. Does that sound familiar?
The last time the world went through such a cycle was a little over 2000 years ago. We passed from the age of Aires to the age of Pisces. In Egypt, you see the age of the Ram in temple monuments and depicted in hieroglyphs. Jesus is symbolised by the fish. With the collapse of the Egyptian Empire we gradually see the rise of the Roman Empire which ultimately became the Holy Roman Empire – or in other words the Catholic Church.
Just as with the balance of power, religion also changed. Once the Roman Empire was established Emperor Constantine enforced a law to prevent the persecution of Christians who had found a new faith through Jesus. Constantine also gave Christian Priests property to house their churches. Eventually Christianity became more popular than paganism and the role reversal was complete. It was the pagans that were persecuted, and no Roman emperors or King´s of Europe came to their aid with laws preventing them from being killed. In fact, the Inquisition was established and the Catholic Church had free reign to kill whoever they wanted.
The powers that be are shaping the world to repeat the process of elimination as the world matures into the new age – or as politicians, bankers and others in the know call it, The New World Order. What the New World Order means is that our planet will have One World Government, One World Bank System and Currency and One World Religion. The founding of the Trilateral Commission consisting of the USA, European Union and Japan was a giant step towards securing territory and support. They were joined by China and India in 2009.
Century 10 Quatrain 75
Long awaited he will never return
In Europe, he will appear in Asia
One who is issued from the Great Hermes
And he will grow of all Kings of the East
The opening sentence to the above quatrain refers to Jesus, Mohammad, or whichever Messiah religious believers are waiting to return. And Nostradamus tells us right there, “he will never return.” However, a new Messiah will appear among us, a new religion that will appear in Europe and he will appear in Asia, “one who is issued from the Great Hermes.” In Greek mythology, Hermes is recognized as the Messenger – just as Jesus was a messenger.
History repeats itself. It´s a cliché, but it´s true. The power in Babylonia shifted to the power in Egypt shifted to the power in Rome, shifted to the power of European Kings, shifted to the power of the British Empire. Take a look at modern times and you can see the exact same pattern today as you find in history the last time the planet passed to the dawn of a new age – just as Nostradamus prophesied in the above quatrain.
The last superpower in the world was the British Empire. On the surface Britain is believed to have relinquished that power and the United States are seen to be the dominating force. But in reality they are one classed under the label of western superpower, together with several other European countries such as France and Spain both of which are heavily influence by the Roman Empire.
Suppose Britain reflects Egypt and America reflects the Roman Empire we have already seen the balance of power shifting. Europe in the form of Britain, France and Spain influence most other cultures around the world, thus the plan for a New World Order is not new at all, but has been in progress for hundreds of years. And the plan is due to enter its final phase.
And that´s not the only pattern. Remember what I said about Constantine introducing a new law to prevent the persecution of Christians. The treaty was known as the Edict of Milan. Today the same theme is an organization known as the United Religions Initiative (URI). So we are also in line for a new world religion to replace the existing ones.
Of course, non-supporters of western politics and philosophies will not be prepared to allow the west to establish a New World Order without putting up a fight. Nostradamus predicts worldwide horrors in many of his quatrains, many of which point towards famine and disease caused by a possible third world war.
Things don´t look to good for the future over the next century or so, though Nostradamus does predict things will improve in the future. Once the New World Order is running smoothly there will be peace, wars will cease and new laws will be established.
Century 9 Quatrain 66
There will be peace, union and change,
Estates and offices low, high and high, very low.
To prepare for a journey the first child torment.
War to cease, civil processes, debates.
In 1951, Paul Warburg a Jewish banker and Freemason said: “There will be a New World whether it is achieved by conquest or consent.” Thus the New World Order will happen one way or another and if Nostradamus is right it´s most likely to be by conquest. And Nostradamus points an accusing finger at the widespread destruction World war 3 will cause in hundreds of his quatrains.
