Vers Aquitaine par insuls Britaniques
Et par eux mesmes grandes incursions
Pluyes, gelees feront terroirs iniques
Port Selyn fortes fera inuasions.

Toward Aquitaine the British shall attack

The same party shall make great incursions

Rain and frost makes the ground treacherous

They shall make invasions into the Muslim stronghold.



The Allied force led by the British troops will begin their offensives into the French territories. By winter, they will counter-attack the retreating Muslim force. The tide of the WW III has begun to turn as the Western Alliance will attack and conquer the Muslim strongholds or territories around the Mediterranean Sea.




La teste bleuë fera la teste blanche
Autant de mal que France à fait leur bien,
Mort à l'anthenne, grand pendu sur la branche,
Quand des prins siens le Roy dira combien.

The blue head shall do to the white head

As much evil (harm ) as France has done them good

Death at the sail yard, the great one hung on the branch

Being captured, the King shall ask how many of his men.



The blue heads are the Muslim troops; the white heads are the holy army led by King Henry of France. The more France supports the Muslim countries, the more damages they will suffer in the hands of their former allies. For intimidation, the Muslims will behead their prisoners and hang their decapitated bodies on the tree branches.




Pour la chaleur solaire sus la mer
De Negrepont les poissons demy cuits,
Les habitans les viendront entamer
Quand Rod & Gennes leur faudra le biscuit.

The heat of the sun beats upon the sea

By a black bridge fish shall be half-cooked

The inhabitants shall come to cut fish open

When Rhodes and Genoa demand biscuits.



The temperatures of the earth will rise so much that the maritime ecological system will be disrupted with fish dying. The black bridge indicates that this is a metallic bridge of our modern time. And food will be scarce.




Depuis Monech iusqu'au pres de Sicile
Toute la plage demourra desolee,
Il n'y aura faux-bourgs, Cité ne Ville
Que par Barbare pillee & vollee.

From Monaco as far as Sicily

All the coast shall be desolate

There shall be no suburbs, cities nor towns

Which shall not be pillaged and violated by Muslims.



All the coastal areas around the Mediterranean Sea will be destroyed by the Muslim invaders.




Quand dans poisson fer & lettre enfermee
Hors sortira qui pis fera la guerre,
Aura par mer sa classe bien ramee
Apparoissant pres de Latine terre.

When in a fish, weapon and letters are enclosed

He shall come out of it, later shall make war

His fleet travel far across the sea

Shall appear near the Italian land.



Russian or Iranian submarines will travel across the Mediterranean Sea to attack Italian coastal areas.




Aupres des portes & dedans deux citez
Seront deux fleaux onc n'apperceu vn tel,
Faim dedans peste, de fer hors gens boutez,
Crier secours au grand Dieu immortel.

Near the seaports and within two cities

Shall be two scourges and one has never seen the like

Famine, pestilence from within, people thrusted out by the swords

They shall cry for help from the great immortal God.



Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza strip shall suffer greatly due to famine, internal fighting, and oppression from Israel occupiers.




Entre plusieurs aux isles deportees,
L'vn estre nay à deux dents en la gorge
Mourront de faim, les arbres esbroutees
Pour eux neuf Roy nouuel edit leur forge.

Among many transported to the islands

One is born with two teeth in his mouth

They shall die of hunger, tree barks stripped

For them, the new King shall issue new verdict.



Muslims will transport European prisoners to the islands in Mediterranean Sea. Upon the barren islands, life will be harsh, and many will die of hunger. The one born with two teeth might be singled out due to his demonic nature.




Temples sacrez prime façon Romaine,
Reietteront les goffes fondemens,
Prenant leurs loix premieres & humaines
Chassant, non tout, des saints les cultemens.

Temples consecrated in the early Roman rituals

They shall reject the shaky foundation

Applying the first humanistic laws

They shall eliminate most the veneration of the saints.



The decay of the ( Catholic ) Church takes place for good when the Holy Mass is turned into the paganistic rituals, when the Teaching and Tradition of the Church including the veneration of the saints is abandoned, replaced with the humanistic precepts.




Neuf ans le regne le maigre en paix tiendra
Puis il cherra en soif si sanguinaire
Pour luy grand peuple sans foy & loy mourra,
Tué par vn beaucoup plus debonnaire.

Nine years the lean one shall keep the reign in peace

Then he shall fall for a bloody thirst

For him the great people shall die without faith and law

Shall be killed by the one with better goodness.



The thin man might be the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Il whose reign began in 1997, three years after his father died. If this prophecy is applied to Kim Jong Il, the  Korean war will take place around 2006 AD. The term “ thin “ indicates the general starvation in that country. The phrase “ much better nature or goodness “ describes Americans and South Koreans.




Auant long temps le tout sera rangé
Nous esperons vn siecle bien senestre,
L'estat des masques & des seule bien changé
Peu trouueront qu'à son rang vueillent estre

Before long, all things shall be arranged

We look for a very sinister age

The conditions of the celibate clergy have greatly changed

Few shall find that they want to stay in their rank.



“The marked and solitary ones” (marques et des seuls) means the celibate or religious, priests and bishops. The very sinister century is our century, the twentieth century. Everything is already planned by God who gave Satan the twentieth century or about one hundred years to tempt mankind. The holiness of the clergy is diminishing and there is a shortage of religious vocation. The rule on the celibacy of priesthood is now greatly debated or challenged.




Yeus clos ouuerts d'antique fantasie
L'habit des seules seront mis à néant :
Le grand monarque chastira leur frenaisie
Rauir des temples le thresor par deuant.

Their eyes closed but open for the antic fantasy

The habit of the celibate shall be discarded

The great monarch shall chastise their frenzy

For ravishing the treasure of the temples before.



Blinded by the worldly desires, the clergy will be influenced by the world. They will live a comfortable materialistic life. Desiring to be “ one of the crowd “, they no longer wear their religious habits. The new King Henry of  France shall install many reforms to revive the holiness in priesthood and religious traditions.




Le corps sans ame plus n'estre en sacrifice,
Iour de mort mis en natiuité
L'esprit diuin fera l'ame felice
Voyant le verbe en son eternité.

The body without soul no longer sacrificed

Day of death shall be the day of birth

The Divine Spirit shall make the soul rejoice

Seeing the Word in all eternity.



This quatrain describes a saintly soul right after the moment of his death. After death, he no longer offers God his sacrifice but rejoices to be with the Word of God or our Lord Jesus Christ forever. His death is his rebirth into the eternal life.




Vn peu deuant monarque trucidé,
Castor Pollux en nef, astre crinite,
L'erain public par terre & mer vuidé,
Pise, ast, Ferrare, Turin, terre interdicte.

A short time before a monarch is murdered

Castor and Pollux, and a comet

Public treasure by land and sea looted

Pisa, Asti, Ferrara, Turin, forbidden land.



The first line is difficult to understand correctly. It might mean “ the monarch” reigning for a short time before being murdered. Castor and Pollux are the astrological Gemini twins, here indicating Popes John Paul I and John Paul II. JP I only reigned for thirty three days before he died. And it was rumored that he was murdered during sleep. Pope JP II succeeded him in 1978. Comet Halley appeared in 1986. After these events, the elections of JP I and JP II, and the appearance of the bearded star, Muslims will invade, occupy, and loot the Italian land of all its national and religious treasures.




Naples, Palerme, Sicile, Syracuses,
Nouueaux tyrans, fulgures, feux celestes
Forces de Londres, Gands, Bruxelles & Suses,
Grand hecatombe, trumphe, faire festes.

Naples, Palermo, Sicily, Syracuse

New tyrants, lightning, celestial fires

Forces from London, Ghent, Bruxelles, and Susa

A great mass grave, then triumph and festivities.



The Muslim occupiers will become the new tyrants in the Italian occupied territories. The Western Alliance will conduct the counter-offensives using troops from England, France, Belgium, and US. Many will lose their lives ( hecatomb or mass grave ), but the final triumph is warranted.




Le camp du temple de la vierge vestale,
Non esloigné d'Ethene & monts Pyrenées :
Le grand conduit est caché dans la male,
North, getez, fleuues, & vignes mastinees.


The field of the temple of the vestal virgin

Not far from Ethen and Pyrenees

The great conduit is hidden in a trunk

In the north, rivers overflowing and vines destroyed.



The areas around Lourdres, the famous shrine of Blessed Virgin Mary will be flooded along with all areas in the southern France, known for their farming and vineyards. The great “conduit “ might be a certain hidden explosive by terrorists to blow up dams causing much flooding in those areas.




Nouuelle & pluye subite, impetueuse
Empeshera subit deux exercices,
Pierre, ciel, feux faire la mer pierreuse
La mort de sept, terre & marin subites.

New, sudden, and heavy rains

Shall suddenly hinder two armies

Stone, heavenly fire shall make the sea rocky

The death of many ( seven ) shall be sudden on land and sea.



The Divine Providence suddenly helps French troops who are losing the war up to that point. Many French sailors will die. Casualties will be very high in both land and sea battles for both sides.




Nouueaux venus, lieu basty sans deffence
Occuper place par lors inhabitable,
Prez, maisons, champs, villes prendre à plaisance,
Faim, peste, guerre, arpen long labourable.

Newcomers shall build a place without defence

Shall occupy a place then not inhabitable

Meadows, houses, fields, towns taken at pleasure

Famine, plagues, wars for a long strip arable land.



Israelite settlements or Israel nation are building on Palestinian land, the cause of the continuous struggles and suffering for both sides.




Freres & Sœurs en plusieurs lieux captifs,
Se trouueront passer pres du Monarque
Les contempler ses rameaux ententifs,
Desplaisant voir menton, frond, nez les marques.

Brothers and sisters made into slaves in various places

They shall pass before a monarch

His attentive eyes shall gaze upon them

Displeasure in seeing the marks on their chin, forehead, and nose.



Jew or Christian prisoners or slaves with marks ( of the cross ?) on their chins, foreheads, and noses are being examined by the AntiChrist or by a Muslim commander.




L'ambassadeur enuoyé par Byremes,
A my-chemin d'incogneus repoussez,
De tel renfort viendront quatre triremes,
Cordes & chaines en Negrepont troussez.

An ambassador is sent in a small ship

Midway he is repulsed by unknown men

With haste, to his rescue come four bigger ships

With ropes and chains, they shall be carried to the Black Sea.



Biremes  is a small galley with two bridges and triremes is bigger vessel with three bridges. A French envoy or ambassador is sent to Italy or to Mediterranean Sea to resolve an international conflict but he is captured by terrorists. French navy departing from Marseilles to rescue him is ambushed near Italian coast, probably in Adriatic Sea. The remaining ships or the debris of the fleet will be towed to the Black Sea or Muslim ports. “Negre” or black could be used by the prophet to imply Muslim.




Le camp Aso, d'Eurotte partira,
S'adioignant proche de l'isle submergee,
D'Arton classe phalange pliera.
Nombril du monde plus grand voix subroges.

The ineffective camp of Europe shall break apart

Shall gather near of submerged island

The NATO fleet shall be dissolved

The center of the world substituted with a greater voice



European Union will become divided within and without, complicated with their anti-American sentiment. Consequently, the NATO Alliance shall become disintegrated or non-existent causing Europe vulnerable to the Muslim and Russian attacks. The super world-power role of US and NATO is diminishing, replaced with a “ great voice.” This greater voice might imply a spiritual wakening, “ the voice of God “ as one cannot imagine a voice greater than the super world power.




Bestes farouches de faim fleuues tranner,
Plus part du camp encontre Hister sera,
En cage de fer le grand fera trainner,
Qunad Rin enfant Germain obseruera.

Hungry beasts shall go across the rivers

Most of the battle filed shall be against Hitler

Into an iron cage, he shall be confined

When the children of Germany shall observe nothing.



Hungry beasts might be tanks or ships. Most of the Allied forces fought against Hitler’s. He himself died in an iron bunker. He had brain-washed the whole generation into madness with formation of brutal Nazis.




La garde estrange trahyra forteresse,
Espoir & ombre du plus haut mariage,
Garde deceue, fort prinse dans la presse,
Loyre, Son, Rosne, Gar, à mort outragez.

The foreign guard shall betray the fortress

Hope in shadow for the most high marriage

Guard deceived, fort taken in the rush

Loire, Saone, Rhone, Garrone outraged to death.



France wants to be friend with Muslims but the latter will betray them. Terrorists will attack French cities from within. The southern France shall be devastated by the Muslim invaders.




Pour la faueur que la cité fera,
Au grand qui tost perdra champ de bataille
Puis le rang Pau, Thesin versera
De sang, feux, morts, noyez, de coups de taille.

Because of the favor the city shall have

On the great leader who later loses on the battle field

Thesin shall pour their blood into Pau

Of blood, fire, dead, drowned by chopping.



Tessin or Ticino, the southern town of Switzerland and River Po is on the northern part of Italy. Both located in the same region. A fierce battle in the region between Muslim-Russian  and Western troops. The local residents will pay a dear price later for cooperating with the Western force when the Muslims occupy the whole region.




Le diuin verbe sera du ciel frappé
Qui ne pourra proceder plus auant,
Du reserant le secret estoupé
Qu'on marchera par dessus & deuant.

The Divine Word shall be restrained in Heaven

He shall not proceed further

The revelation, the secret shut away

They shall walk over and fall into the dungeon.



Our Lord Jesus Christ shall yield to the Divine Justice of His Father. The Holy Spirit and His prophecies shall also be withdrawn. The unrepentant sinners will continue to walk right into the eternal damnation.




Le penultine du surnom de prophete
Prendra Diane pour son iour & repos,
Loing vaguera par frenetique teste,
Et deliurant vn grand peuple d'imposts.


The last with the surname of a prophet

Shall take Monday as the day of rest

He shall wander far off with his head full of frenzy

Deliver a great people from imposition.



Germany sounds very closely to Jeremiah, the prophet’s name. It would create three-day weekend for German workers.  Germany would lose their Christian root and Faith due to their fanciful ideas of occultic human liberation or transcendence.




L'oriental sortira de son siege,
Passer les monts Apennins, voir la Gaule,
Transpercera du ciel les eaux & neiges
En vn chacun frappera de sa gaule.

One from the East shall come out of his seat

Shall cross the Apennines Mountains to see France

He shall fly through the air, water, and snow

And strike everyone with his rod.



Iran-led Muslims and probably Russians will conquer Italy, then will strike France next by crossing the Alps on foot, reach Marseilles by sea, and bombard French territories with the weapon of mass destruction through the air.




Vn qui les dieux d'Annibal infernaux
Fera renaistre effrayeur des humains
Oncq plus d'horreur, ne plus pire iournaux
Qu'aduint viendra par Babel aux Romains.

One shall cause the infernal gods of Annibal

To be reborn to terrorize mankind

There was never more horror, ever journals recorded

It shall happen because of the Babel by the Romans.



The ancient Annibal once attacked Rome. WW III will happen with Rome and Paris being completely destroyed. It will happen because of the sins of mankind plus the loss of faith which started with many heretical modern reforms starting with the new Mass celebrated in different languages ( Babel ) by the clergy (Romans.) Those heretical reforms abusing the spirit of Vatican II. They have desecrated the divine Liturgy, leading to the decay of the Faith. Lukewarmness, and consequently, the sinfulness of mankind in general.




En campagne Cassilin fera tant
Qu'on ne verra que d'eau les champs couuerts
Deuant, apres, la pluye de long temps
Hors mis les arbres rien l'on verra de vert.

In Campanie Cassilin town shall be done much

That one shall see nothing but fields covered under water

Before and after, rains for a long time

Except tree tops, nothing green can be seen.


The Italian town and region will be flooded badly, probably before or right after WW III or the Muslim invasions into Europe.




Laict, sang, grenoüilles escondre en Dalmatie
Conflit donné, peste preste, de baleine
Cry sera grand par toute Esclauonie,
Lors naistra monstre pres & dedans
Lors naistra monstre pres & dedans Rauenne.

Milk, blood, frogs shall be prepared in Dalmatia

Conflict fought, pestilence near Balennes

A great cry shall be through out Sclavonia

The a monster shall be born near and within Ravenna.



“Milk, blood, frogs” stands for nuclear, chemical, biological weapons of mass destruction, fired from the Eastern side of Adriatic Sea (Dalmatia) to the other side. The Slav nationalities or the Central Europe will suffer much under the Russian control. Russia will occupy many nations in the region such as Czech, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, and Austria.




Par le torrent qui descend de Veronne,
Par lors qu'au Pol guindera son entree,
Vn grand naufrage, & non moins en Garonne
Quand ceux de Gennes marcheront leur contree.

Through the torrent which descends from Verona

About the place it shall pour into the River Pau

A great shipwreck and one no less in Garonna

When those of Genoa shall march against their country.



Flooding in Italy, Genoa citizens demonstrate against their government, probably due to the lack of the governmental assistance.




Dans deux logis de nuict le feu prendra,
Plusieurs dedans estouffez & rostis,
Pres de deux fleuues pour seur il aduiendra
Sol, l'Arc & Caper, tous seront amortis.

In two inns at night the fire shall break out

Many shall be suffocated and roasted

Near two rivers, it shall happen certainly

Sol, Arc, and Caper (goat or cape) all mortified.


Sol is the sun or God; Arc is crescent or Muslims; Caper in Latin for goat or cape which stands for the pope. Pope JP II will flee from Italy to the Southern France where he himself and his companions will be killed somewhere in the region between two rivers. Someone will deliberately set fire to the place they are staying killing many religious who accompanying the Pope.




Du grand Prophete les lettres seront prinses
Entre les mains du tyran deuiendront,
Frauder son Roy seront les entreprinses,
Mais ses rapines bien tost le troubleront.

The writings of the great prophet shall be confiscated

They shall fall into the hands of the tyrant

His undertaking is to deceive his King

But his mischief very soon shall trouble himself.



The world leaders will not be aware of Nostradamus’s prophecies concerning WW III, only after the conflict is underway.




Des condamnez sera fait vn grand nombre.
Quand les Monarques seront conciliez :
Mais l'vn d'eux viendra si mal encombre,
Que guerre ensemle ne seront raliez.

The condemned shall make up a great number

When the leaders are reconciled

But one of them shall suffer great misfortune

That even war has stopped, not bringing any relief

( OR: That their reconciliation shall not last long.)



After WW III, many nations will enjoy a period of peace except one or two nations who are most devastated due to the war. I think Iran or other  Muslim countries will be greatly destroyed and their territories will be occupied and their citizens will be mistreated. This inequality will eventually bring about insurgent resistance in Middle East.




Vn an deuant le conflit Italique
Germain, Gaulois, Espagnols pour le fort,
Cherra l'escolle maison de republique,
Ou, hors mis peu, seront suffoquez morts.

One year before the Italian conflict

German, French, Spanish united for the show of force

The school house of the republic shall collapse

Except a few, all shall be suffocated to death.



One year before Muslims invade Italy, the building in US will collapse probably due to terrorist bombing. The prophet always used the word “ republic “ to indicate America. After September 11th of 2001, NATO represented here by three of its members, Germany, France, and Spain, showed the unity by strong condemnation on the act of terrorism upon the World Trade Center.




Vn peu apres non point longue interualle
Par mer & terre sera fait grand tumulte,
Beaucoup plus grande sera pugne naualle,
Feux, animaux, qui plus feront d'insulte.

Shortly afterwards, not along time

By land and sea, a great tumult shall be made

The naval battles shall be greater than ever

Fire and animals shall create a great affront.



This is the continuation of the previous quatrain. Shortly after September 11th, WW III will take place, marked by many greatest naval battles around the Mediterranean Sea in which the Western forces will suffer great losses by the smaller and cruder Muslim navy. “ Fire and animals “ phrase is used here to describe the modern weapons which were not fully understood by Nostradamus.




La grand, estoille par sept iours bruslera.
Nuë fera deux Soleils apparoir,
Le gros mastin toute nuict hurlera,
Quand grand pontife changera de terroir.

The great star shall burn for seven days

The cloud shall make two suns appear

The big dog shall howl all night

When the great pope shall change land.



Comet Hale-Bopp appeared for many days in 1997. The cloud formation shall create a halo around the sun. the big dog howling indicates a great tragic event or period of time. Pope JP II will have to flee Rome upon the coming invasion. This is the continuation of the previous quatrains.




Durant l'estoille cheueluë apparente,
Les trois grands Princes seront faits ennemys,
Frappez du ciel paix terre trembulente,
pau, Tymbre, vndans, serpens sur le bord mis.

During the time the bearded star appears

The three great princes shall become enemies

Struck by Heaven, peace on earth trembles

Paul, overflowing Tiber river, a serpent place on shore.



After the comet Hale-Bopp appeared in 1997, US, Europe, Russia, Muslims, China will become enemies. The three princes are the Christian countries, Muslim block, and Communists or atheistic countries. WW III is the Divine Justice metered out on this sinful world. The serpent or evil will land on the Italian shore affecting the fate of JP II and Rome which is located near the Tiber River.




Trop le ciel pleure l'androgin procreé
Pres de ce ciel sang humain respandu,
Par mort trop tarde grand peuple recreé,
Tard & tost vient le secours attendu.

Heaven shall weep too much for androgynous creation

To Heaven, human blood shall reach

Because of so long a death, mankind cannot be reborn

But sooner or later shall come the long-waited help.



Androgynous means having the characteristics of both male and female, here means homosexuality. Homosexual sex and abortion or " human blood " are the sins which will reach Heaven demanding vengeance.




Apres grâd trouble humain plus grâd s'appreste,
Le grand moteur les siecles renouuelle,
Pluye, sang, laict, famine, feu & peste :
Au ciel veu feu, courant longue estincelle.

After a great period of human suffering, appears another one

The great motor of centuries shall be renovated

Rain with blood, milk, famine, weapons and pestilence

In the air a fire with a long sparkling trail shall be seen.



WW I and WW II and then comes WW III. Mankind will destroy itself with their modern technology, with weapons of mass destruction. Milk together iron or fire often used by Nostradamus to imply the weapons of mass destruction or chemical and biological warfare. A fire with a long trail is a missile.




L'ennemy grand vieil dueil meurt de poison
Les souuerains par infinis subiuguez,
Pierres plouuoir cachez soubs la toyson,
Par mort articles en vain sont alleguez.

The Enemy shall watch the old man die by poison

By the ancient and infinite one, many sovereign nations shall be subjugated

He shall rain down stones, hidden in sheep clothing

Toward death, articles in vain are sought.



The Enemy, the Ancient One with the demonic power is watching sinners dying due to his poisonous temptations. All kings are drunk of the potion given to them by the Babylonian prostitute with immeasurable seductive power. The will follow the vain humanistic documents which are the man-made laws instead of God's commands to the death of their souls.




Les conseillers du premier monopole,
Les conquerans seduits par le Melite,
Rhodes, Bisance pour leur exposant pole,
Terre faudra les poursuiuants de fuitte.

The advisers of the initial conspiracy

The conquerors seduced by the Melite ( Moabite or Arabic )

Rhodes, Byzantium for them shall open their towns

Land needed by the pursuers of the scheme.



Greece and Turkey both will side with Iran-led Muslim army at the beginning, will allow the conquering armies to use their territories for the supply routes.




Quand ceux d'Hinault, Do, Gand & de Bruxelles
Verront à Langres le siege deuant mis,
Derriere leurs flancs seront guerres cruelles,
La pluye antique, fera pis qu'ennemys.

When those born of pride, well-to-do, and of the brute beasts

Witnessing the siege laid in front, at the verge of the hellfire

Behind their flanks shall be the cruel wars

The ancient wound shall be worse than the enemies.



Hainault  is the anagram of " Nai-hault " or " born-pride "; Gand is grand or  well-to-do, affluent countries, Bruxelles  is of the brute beast; Langres is the hellfire; ancient wound is sins or the abandonment of their Creator. When the Western countries are brutalized by Muslims and after they realize the wars are the Divine chastisements fallen upon them because of their sins, their repentance for offending God will be much more painful than the war itself.




Le sang du iuste à Londres fera faute,
Bruslez par foudres de vingt trois les six,
La dame antique cherra de place haute,
De mesme secte plusieurs seront occis.

The blood of the innocent shall be London's guilt

Burnt by lightning twenty times 666

The ancient lady or Babylonian whore shall fall from the high place

From the same sex, many shall be killed.



Due to the killing of the innocent unborn and whoredom, England will be punished severely. Many will die beginning in London. 666 stands for the extreme evil or imperfection.




Dans plusieurs nuicts la terre tremblera,
Sur le printemps deux efforts feront suitte,
Corinthe, Ephese aux deux mers nagera,
Guerre s'esmeut par deux vailants de luitte.

Many nights the earth shall quake

In spring two great ones shall follow one another

Corinth and Ephesus shall swim in two seas

War shall be set by two valiant in combat.



Great earthquakes will take place simultaneously in Turkey and Greece. After that, the two will immerse in war.




La grande peste de cité maritime
Ne cessera que mort ne soit vengee :
Du iuste sang par pris damne sans crime,
De la grand' dame par fainte n'outragee.

The great plague at a maritime city

Shall not cease until death is not sought for vengeance

Due to the innocent blood condemned without crime

From the great woman ( Babylonian whore ) through her pretending outrage.



London and England will be condemned with great plague or strange diseases, a punishment for killing the unborn. " La grand dame " here mean the Babylonian whore in chapter   of the Book of Revelation. This quatrain is served as the emphasis for 2.51.




Par gent estrange, & de Romains loingtaine,
Leur grand cité apres eau fort troublee :
Fille sans main, trop different domaine,
Prins, chef terreure n'auoit este riblee.

By the foreign people, far from the Romans

Their great city shall be greatly troubled under water

The girl of not much different condition ( than the city )

Their leader poisoned, the lock is not ribbed.



Muslims and Russians will attack Italy, destroy Venice which will be submerged under water. Young girls or females will be brutalized and defiled , ending up with the fate as their city.




Dans le conflit le grand qui peu valloit
A son dernier fera cas merueilleux :
Pendant qu'Hadrie verra ce qu'il falloit,
Dans le banquet pongnale l'orgueilleux.

In the battle, the one of little worth shall be called great

At the end, he shall do wondrous deeds

While Henry shall realize his wants

At the banquet, he shall stab the proud.



The humble Henry, of a little worth in the eyes of the proud, shall rise up trusting in God to defeat the Muslim and Russian armies, shall defy the worldly wisdom and pride.




Que peste & glaiue n'a peu s'en definer,
Mort dans le puys sommet du ciel frappé,
L'abbé mourra quand verra ruyner
Ceux du naufrage, l'escueil voulant grapper.

He who neither plague or sword can destroy

Shall die on the mountain top, struck from the sky

The abbot shall die when he sees his ruin

Those in the shipwreck shall try to grasp the rock cliff.



The AntiChrist who once was a priest ( abbot ) will turn into a military conqueror. At the end of his allotted time, he will be struck by lightning on the mountain in the Holy Land and die.




Auant conflit le grand mur tombera,
Le grand à mort, mort trop subite & plainte
Nef imparfaict : la plus part nagera,
Aupres du fleuue de sang la terre tainte.

Before the conflict the great one shall fall

The great one to death, death too sudden and sorrowful

Born imperfect; the most part shall swim

Near the river of blood, soil stained.



The great one is the whole mankind. The greater part of mankind will swim in their own blood as they are born imperfect meaning living in sins, not being redeemed or born again in Christ Jesus.




Sans pied ne main dent ayguë & forte
Par globe au fort de porc & l'aisné nay,
Pres du portail desloyal se transporte,
Silene luyt petit grand emmené.

Without foot or hand, with sharp and strong teeth

By the Globe, in the middle of a port and with the elders

Near the gate, the disloyal shall transport them

Selin shines, the younger of the great one shall be carried away.



" Without foot and hand " is the Ancient serpent, over the globe or the world, will attack the seaport. The older generations are seen here by the gates and being transported to the concentration camps on the islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Muslims or Selin will be victorious and the younger generations will die by their hands.




Classe Gauloise par appuy de grand'garde,
Du grand Neptune, & ses tridens soldats,
Rongee prouence pour soustenir grand'bande,
Plus Mars Narbon par iauelots & dards.

The French fleet with the assistance of the great guard

From the great Neptune and by the trident soldiers

Provence shall be scourged to sustain this great band

Mostly wars shall be in Narbon with javelins and darts.



French fleet with the support of the great guard probably US, by Neptune or the " good fortune at sea ", and also by the alliance of three countries which are France, England, and Italy. Italian cities will be totally devastated. For Example, Provence will be devastated in halting the Muslims advance, and another city Narbonne will also suffer with many battles on its soil.




La foy Punique en Orient rompuë,
Gang, lud. & Rosne, Loyre & Tag. changeront,
Quand du mulet la faim sera repuë,
Classe espargie sang & corps nageront.

The simple Faith in the Lord is broken

Great Jordan River, Rhone, Loire, and Tagus shall change

When the hunger for a mule is satisfied

Fleet shall be scattered, blood and bodies swim.



The Orient is the name or title used for our Lord Jesus Christ whose symbol is the Rising sun in the East. There will be changes and devastations in the Middle East, France, and Spain where all the above-mentioned rivers are running. The phrase " hunger for a mule " implies a general starvation or great hunger on ships at sea. Here the French fleet will be surrounded by the Muslim ships in Mediterranean Sea, probably in the narrow place like Adriatic Sea, will suffer hunger and eventually will be completely sunk to the bottom of the sea.




Mabus puis tost alors mourra viendra,
De gens & bestes vne horrible deffaite,
Puis tout à coup la vengeance on verra,
Cent, main, soif, faim, quand courra la comette.

Mabus shall come, soon shall die

Half man half beast shall be a horrible destruction

Suddenly vengeance shall be seen

Blood, hand, thirst, famine, when the comet comes.



Mabus is the abbreviation of Bragamus ( see Quatrain 8.78 which also deals with the AntiChrist.) The word means a soldier of fortune, not a name of a person. The AntiChrist is incarnated beast from hell. In his short reign, he will totally destroy everything he can get his hand on. Eventually, he will be struck by lightning.




Seicher de faim, de soif gent Geneuoise,
Espoir prochain viendra au defaillir,
Sur point tremblant sera loy Gebenoise,
Classe au grand port ne se peut accueillir.

Geneva shall suffer hunger and thirst

A faint hope shall come when they are fainting

The hellish laws shall be trembled

The navy shall not be able to enter the port.



Geneva will suffer drought and starvation due to their liberal life style. The Western alliance cannot come rescue them in time. Consequently, only a few will survive.




Le parc enclin grande calamité,
Par l'Hesperie & Insubre fera,
Le feu en nef, peste & captiuité,
Mercure en l'arc, Saturne fenera.

The slope declined, great calamity

Which shall be done to the West and Italy

Fire in ship ( papacy ), plague, and captivity

Mercury in Arc, Saturn harvests hay.



The degeneration of human nature like a declining slope will bring  a great infliction to men through wars, natural disasters, plague, and imprisonment. Pope JP II will suffer also. Mercury in arc means God's Justice through the Muslim hands. And it is time for the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, to harvest His sowing and the Devil gets his.




La blonde au nez forché viendra commettre
Par le duelle & chassera dehors,
Les exilez dedans fera remettre
Aux lieux marins commettant les plus forts.

The blond and the hooknosed one

Through a duel shall chase him out

He shall put back the exiled

Put the better of them in Marian places.



The blonde ones are the Westerners, the hooknosed are Muslims. The exiled are the devout Christians who disregard the worldly desires and consider their life on earth merely as a temporary sojourn toward their Heavenly home. The “better” of the exiled are the most devout Christians, those with greatest holiness. “Marins” in line 4 is Marina, the anagram of Marian meaning those who consecrated their lives to Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. The western Europeans will battle against the Muslims and will eventually win the conflict and chase the latter away. King Henry of France, the leader of Europe will restore the European Christendom, will put the most devout Marian catholics into the most important governmental positions.




De l'Aquilon les efforts seront grands,
Sur l'Ocean sera la porte ouuerte,
Le regne en l'isle sera reintegrand,
Tremblera Londres par voille descouuerte.

The efforts from the North shall be great

Adjacent to the ocean, the port shall be wide-open

The British sovereignty shall be tested

London shall tremble upon discovering the enemy’s sails.



Aquilon means the north wind in French, here can be either Russia or US. Russia will attack London or England by ships and the English force is defenseless against them due to the destruction of her navy and the late coming of her American allies who are reluctant to fight for Europeans this time because of their ungratefulness, their anti-American sentiment, and their Godlessness.




Le Roy Gaulois par la Celtique dextre
Voyant discorde de la grand Monarchie,
Sur les trois parts fera fleurir son sceptre,
Contre la cappe de la grand Hierarchie.

The French King with the Celtic right hand

Seeing the discord of the great monarchy

Upon three parts of it, his scepter flourishes

Complementary to the Cape of the great Hierarchy.



King Henry of France, with the support form Britain and US, will defeat the Eastern alliance. He will reign the world along with the holy Pontiff who will be his spiritual counterpart, given by God to the whole world. This Pope is the one St. Malachy had prophesied one thousand years ago as “the Glory of Olive” or the Pope of the period of  the Golden Peace. Cape stands for Pope.




Le dard du Ciel fera son estenduë,
Morts en parlant grande execution,
La pierre en l'arbre la fiere gent renduë,
Bruit humain monstre, purge expiration.

The dart from the sky shall make its extension

Died speaking, a great execution

Turning into stone, a proud people being humbled

Human beast can only be purged by expiation.



Missiles lightening up the sky will mark the beginning  of the great bloody execution of mankind. Many will be mass-executed alive. This will come about because men have lost their conscience turning into stone or human beasts. Therefore, a general expiation is needed for the purification of the human race.




Les exilez en Sicile viendront,
Pour deliurer la gent estrange :
Au point du iour les Celtes luy faudront,
La vie demeure à raison Roy se range.

The exiled shall come to Sicily

To deliver the foreign nation from hunger

At the daybreak, the French troop shall fail them

Their life shall be preserved by faith only that their King and Lord is with them.



Like 2.67, the term “exiled” means the devout catholic minority living in Europe, who consider themselves as the exiled in  the paganistic and secular societies. They will come to Sicily to do humanitarian works helping the local residents who are suffering with hunger under the Muslim occupation. French troops fail to land on Sicily at the daybreak, putting the lives of the French missionaries in danger.




Armee Celtique en Italie vexee,
De toutes parts conflit & grande perte,
Romains fuis, ô Gaule repoussee,
Pres du Thesin, Rubicon pugne incerte.

French army vexed in Italy

For all sides, great conflict and great loss

Romans fled, o French repulsed

Near Ticino and Rubicon uncertain battles.



French troops will come to aid Italians fighting the Muslims. The battles around Italy will be fierce and bloody for both sides. The Pope and clergy will flee from Rome to France.




Au lac Fucin de Benac le riuage,
Prins du Leman ou port de l'Origuion.
Nay de trois bras predict belliq' image.
Par trois couronnes au grand Endymion.

To the Lake Fucino from Lake Benac ( Garda )

Taken from Lake Leman ( Geneva )  to the port of Orguion

Born with three arms predicting a warlike image

By three crowns for the great Endymion.



Endymion is the young man in Greek mythology, loved by Selene. He had the gift of the eternal sleep. Just as Selene or Selin, the moon symbolized Blessed Virgin Mary. Endymion, the beloved child of Selin, stands for Jesus Christ Who has the power to grant the ones in sleep an eternal life. Geneva where all the lakes including Lake Geneva  form the image of three arms or hand with many fingers, foretell the devastation by many battles in the region, carried out by three parties which are Western Christians, Muslims, and Communist atheists according to the Divine Justice.




De Sens, d'Autun viendront iusques au Rosne
Pour passer outre vers les monts Pyrennees
La gent sortir de la marque d'Auconne,
Par terre & mer le suyura à grands trainnées.

From Sens and Autun they shall go as far as Rhone

And shall pass over the other side of Pyrenees Mountains

People shall come out from Marches of Anconna

Through land and sea shall spread out with great speed.



Sens and Autun are in the North-East of France. French troops will retreat there, then will begin to push back the encircling Muslim troops deep to the southern France, will attack Spain, then go on to liberate Italy. From Rimini stretching to the north of Guilianova ( Marches of Anconna ), the Western troops shall spread throughout Italy and finally to the rest of the coasts around Mediterranean Sea  and to the Middle East.




La voix ouye de l'insolit oyseau,
Sur le canon du respiral estage :
Si haut viendra de froment le boisseau,
Que l'homme d'homme sera Antropophage.

The voice of the unusual birds shall be heard

As recorded in the Canon of the highest degree

The bushel of wheat shall rise so high

That men and men shall become man-eater.



The Canon of the highest degree is the Bible or the Book of Revelation. When one hears the voice of an unusual birds, the AntiChrist is coming. One of his tactics to enslave the general population is rationing food in order to obtain civil obedience. A wide-spread hunger will take place in which men will devour human flesh due to starvation.




La barbe crespe & noire par engin,
Subiuguera la gent cruelle & fiere :
Vn grand Chyren ostera du longin,
Tous les captifs par Seline baniere.

The frizzled black beard through battles

Shall overcome a fierce and cruel people

The great HENRY shall free from bondage

All captives under Muslim hand.



The French commander during WW III is the man who has a black curly beard. He will lead the Western Alliance and defeat the Muslim-Russian forces.




Apres conflit du Ieffé l'éloquence,
Par peu de temps se tramme faim, repos,
Point on n'admet les grands à deliurance,
Des ennemis sont remis à propos.

After the war, by the eloquence of a wounded man

For a short time he shall bring peace

Not a single of the great ones shall be delivered

Instead, they shall be delivered to their enemies.



King Henry of France will walk with a limp, injured during the battles or limping as his consecration mark to Blessed Virgin Mary, similar to Jacob’s after wrestling with the Angel of the Lord. Henry will allow the local authorities to deal with all major prisoners of war committing war crimes according to their wishes. There will be no international tribunal or court.




Par feu du Ciel la cité pres qu'aduste,
Vrna menasse encor Ceucalion,
Vexee Sardagne par la punique fuste,
Apres que Libra lairra son Phaeton.

By fire from the sky the City shall be burnt almost

Water shall threaten another Deluge ( Deucalion )

Sardina shall be vexed by the African fleet ( Libya )

After Libra ( US ) has left Phaeton ( Iraq.)



Libra stands for USA, the nation governed by law and order. The African fleet might be Libyan or Egyptian navy. There will be flooding and the missile bombardment into Italian cities, and finally the attack by the Muslim fleet will come after American troops initiate the last and modern Crusade or after they withdraw from Iraq. Phaeton is the Greek mythological youth who drove the chariot of the Sun, here Phaeton symbolizes US who initiates the final conflict between Muslim and Western christian nations used as the Divine chastisement from God upon the present sinful generations.




Par faim la proye sera loup prisonnier,
L'assaillant hors en extreme detresse :
Vn nay ayant au deuant le dernier,
Le grand n'eschappe au milieu de la presse.

By hunger the prey shall make the wolf prisoner

The assailants then in great distress

The earlier-born ( elders ) shall have the younger in front

The great man ( leader ) shall not escape in the middle of the crowd.



The refugee influx will make Italy ( the wolf ) more vulnerable to the foreign aggression. The elders will follow their younger relatives to flee from the advancing troops. Their leaders are also among the refugees indicating that the attack will take place very suddenly and advance very swiftly.




Entre Champagne, Sienne, Flora, Tustie,
Six mois neuf iours ne pleuuera vne goutte :
Estrange langue en terre d'Almatie,
Courira sus, gastant la terre toute.

Between Campania, Sienna, Florence, Tuscany

Six months and nine days without one drop of rain

The foreign language in Dalmatian land

It shall overrun, devastating all land.



The worldwide drought  also affect Balkan and Italy. The Muslim and Russian troops will amass along the eastern side of Adriatic Sea, ready to attack Italy and eventually advance toward France.




Vieux plains de barbe sous le statut seuere
A Lyon fait dessus l'Aigle Celtique :
Le petit grand trop outre perseuere,
Bruit d'armes au ciel, mer rouge Lygustique.

With all the solemnity the old man with a plain beard

At Lyon shall be placed above the Celtic Eagle

The humble but great shall show a perseverance above all others

Noise of weapons fills the air and Linguistic Sea reddened with blood.



King Henry of France in Lyon will be appointed to be the Supreme Commander of the Western Alliance. The Celtic eagle indicates US and Britain.




Naufrage à classe pres d'onde Hadriatique,
La terre esmeuë sus lair en terre mis :
Egypte tremble augment Mahommetique,
Heraut se rendre à crier est commis.

The wreckage of the fleet near Adriatic Sea

The earth trembles, emitting through air, then fall back to earth

Egypt trembles due to the Muslim extremists

The Herald surrendering shall be allowed to cry.



Around the Adriatic Sea or Mediterranean Sea, Iran or Russia  will drop nuclear bombs in the air to cause earthquakes and tidal waves to flood the coastal areas and destroy all warships and submarines belonging to France, Italy, Egypt, Turkey, Israel, and Greece. WW III will begin with Russia and Muslim navies dominating Mediterranean Sea and Middle Eastern regions. Egypt will surrender her pro-Western government to the radical Muslim factions who are loyal to Iran.




Apres viendra des extremes contrees
Prince Germain sur le throsne doré :
En seruitude & par eaux rencontrees
La dame serue, son temps plus n'a duré.

Afterwards one shall come from the remote regions

A German prince placed upon the golden throne

Servitude and waters shall meet

The ancient lady severed, her time no longer adored.



King Henry will be anointed as the Roman German Emperor because he will restore the European Christendom and because after WW III, the ancient Frankish Empire of Charlemagne the Great consisting of the old Germany and France will be restored. “Servitude and waters “ mean that the foreign lands or Middle East including all former Muslim countries will become the occupied territories. The Babylonian whore will be restrained meaning all sexual vices and feminism will be abolished or forbidden. Women will be honored for their domestic traditional role as wives and mothers.




Vn iour seront damis les deux grands maistres
Leur grand pouuoir se verra augmenté :
La terre neufue sera en ses hauts estres,
Au sanguinaire, le nombre racompté.

One day two great masters shall be friends

Their great powers shall be augmented

The new land shall be at its high power

To the bloody, a number is reported.



The new land is USA. Here Nostradamus prophesied US and Soviet Union would become friends. The last line describes Mikhail Gorbachev who has a large  “ bloody “  birthmark on his forehead.




Soleil leuant vn grand feu on verra,
Bruit & clarté vers Aquilon tendant :
Dedans le rond mort & cris on orra,
Par glaiue, feu, faim mort les attendans.

At the sunrise a great fire shall be seen

Noise at light extending toward the North

Within the round ( globe ) death and cries shall be heard

By sword, fire, famine, death awaits them.



Terrorist will launch full-scale surprised attack in US. At the same time, the world will suffer war, fire, and famine. Terrorists attacks in US will come the same time with Russian Muslim invasion in Europe. “ At the sunrise “ probably means “ as the Divine Chastisement “ . Only the Northern Hemisphere will suffer most of the war-torn devastations and bloodshed. The regions affected include Canada, US, Europe, north Africa, Middle East, Europe, Central Asia, China, Japan, India, and so on.




Bien pres du Tymbre presse la Lybitine,
Vn peu deuant grand inondation :
Le chef du nef prins, mis en la sentine,
Chasteau, palais en conflagration.

Near the Tiber, the goddess of death threatens

A little before the great flood

The master of the ship being taken, put in a well

His castle and palace being burnt down.



Libitina is the Latin for the goddess of death. Near River Tiber is where the Vatican is located. The master of the ship is the Pope who will go into hiding or being confined by a crazy mob who will burn down Vatican at the onset of WW III.




Gran, Po, grand mal pour Gaulois receura,
Vaine terreur au maritin Lyon :
Peuple infiny par la mer passera,
Sans eschapper vn quart d'vn million.

The great PAUL shall receive great harm from Frenchmen

That shall bring vain terror to the coastal Lyon

An infinite number of  people shall pass the sea

Without escape are a quarter of million.



Pope JP II will suffer in the hand of Frenchmen somewhere in the Southern France near the rivers. His death will bring a great curse upon the local residents for their crime against the holy one of God. Muslim troops will invade the same region with a great number and about a quarter of million of French citizens will die or be captured.




Les lieux peuplez seront inhabitables,
Pour champs auoir grande diuision :
Regnes liurez à prudens incapables,
Entre les freres mort & dissention.

The populous places shall become uninhabitable

A great discord in obtaining lands

Because kingdom given to prudent in capable

Great brothers shall die by dissension.



Israel and Palestine will fight and many on both sides will die because they cannot prudently agree on the division of their lands.




Flambeau ardant au ciel sera veu,
Pres de la fin & principe du Rosne,
Famine, glaiue, tard le secours pourueu,
La Perse tourne enuahit Macedoine.

A burning torch shall be seen in the sky at night

Along the River Rhone

Famine, sword, help shall come too late

Persia ( Iran ) shall attack Macedonia.



Fighting will break out primarily at the beginning and the end along River Rhone in the southern France between French army and the Muslim invaders. The help from US will come too late. After occupying France, Iranians will turn to Greece.




Romain Pontife garde de t'aprocher,
De la cité qui deux fleuues arrouse :
Ton sang viendras aupres de là cracher
Toy & les tiens quand fleurira la rose.

Roman Pontiff, be careful when you come near

The city by the two rivers

Where thou shall split thy blood

Thou and thine when the rose shall bloom.



Pope JP II will flee from Rome to somewhere in the southern France where the two rivers run. This is where he will end his life in martyrdom. The Blessed Virgin will receive his life at the end ( “when the rose bloom.”) One of her titles is the Mystical Rose.




Celuy du sang resperse le visage,
De la victime proche sacrifice,
Tonant en leo augure presage,
Mais estre à mort lors pour la fiancee.

He who shall have his face covered with blood

The blood of a victim close to be sacrificed

The sun is coming into Leo, augur passes away

He shall be martyred for his Bridegroom.



This is the continuation of the previous quatrain. Pope JP II will be captured in France and be martyred for his love of Christ. Leo stands for the Pope; Sun for the Lord; “ augur “ was used for Pope JP II or King Henry by Nostradamus more than once; Fiancee is the beloved Bridegroom  or our Lord Jesus.




Terroir Romain qu'interpretoit augure,
Par gent Gauloise par trop sera vexee
Mais nation Celtique craindra l'heure,
Boreas, classe trop loing l'auoir poussee.

Roman land interpreted by the great augur

Shall be greatly vexed by French people

But the French nation shall fear the hour

That the North Wind helps to push the Muslim fleet so far.



The first line means the Church led by Pope JP II. France will reject the Church’s Teaching and publicly defy their spiritual leader. This is an outcry considering France once was the great catholic nation along with Italy. Their king once consecrated France to Jesus the Lord Himself. France will pay a very heavy price for their rebellion against their God when Russia or the North Wind together with Muslims will invade France from both northern and southern fronts. Boreas means the north wind in Latin.
