October 31, 2011, Quatran Century 10, line 74
The year of the great number seven, during the games of slaughter, it appears, when the dead somehow get out of their graves.
Today is Halloween as Nostradamus referred to about the dead rising from their graves, (hence trick or treating) and the great number 7 refers to the world’s population turning to 7 billion. This happened today, on Halloween.
Other prophecies that came true are as followed:
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: Henry II’s Death
“The young lion will overcome the older one,
On the field of combat in a single battle;
He will pierce his eyes through a golden cage,
Two wounds made one, then he dies a cruel death.” (Century 1, Quatrain 35)
The year was 1559. Nostradamus’s predictions were ignored by Henry II, and the latter took part in a jousting tournament against Comte de Montgomery (six years younger than Henry II). Both of them had shields which was embossed with the lion. During the final fight, Montgomery’s lance, which he failed to lower at the right time, shattered. A piece of it went through the King’s gilded visor (Golden cage), which resulted in two wounds, as per Nostradamus’s predictions; one spliced his eye, while the other pierced his temple, just behind his eye. His brain was penetrated by both the splinters. For 10 days, the King underwent intolerable pain, and then died a cruel death. So, one of the great seers predictions comes true.
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: London Fire
In this prophecy, Nostradamus predicted the exact year of the Great Fire at London.
“The blood of the just will be demanded of London,
Burnt by the fire in the year 66” (Century 2; Quatrain 51)
2nd September, 1666. One single spark, burnt down the entire Medieval London, the city of Shakespeare. London burned for 5 days and after the fire was controlled, 1½ miles by ½ miles, was completely turned to ashes. 87 churches were destroyed and 13,200 houses were burned down. Though Nostradamus had predicted that “blood of the just will be demanded”, only 6 people had died though. Some, however, see this prediction of ‘blood of the just’ (translated from French) as the justice which was done to the Black Death or the plague that had killed many in Europe. The fire had done a great service by killing the rats that were the carriers of this plague. Thus, ‘blood of the just’.
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: French Revolution
Several quatrains have been found, that predict the French Revolution which had taken place in the 18th century. Here are some of those quatrains.
“From the enslaved people, songs, chants and demands,
The princes and lords are held captive in prisons:
In the future by such headless idiots
These will be taken as divine utterances.”
Before the war comes,
The great wall will fall,
The King will be executed, his death coming too soon will be lamented.
(The guards) will swim in blood,
Near the River Seine the soil will be bloodied.”
July 14th, 1789. The symbol to the detested monarchy, the prison of Bastille, was stormed into by the French people. The Storming of Bastille, marked the beginning of French Revolution. The Revolution started the rise and fall of the guillotine, which was located on the banks of River Seine. Thus, Nostradamus prediction that ‘the guards will swim in blood…will be bloodied’, came true. The French Revolution only made Nostradamus name as a seer, even more popular. He had predicted the French Revolution, 200 years before it actually occurred.
Hold on to your seats, there are more Nostradamus prophecies and predictions that have come true.
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: Hitler and the Second World War
“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.”
“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.” (Century 3, Quatrain 35)
Some say that Nostradamus had misspelled Hitler’s name here. If we look into the Dictator’s past, he was born to poor parents and his powerful speeches, had moved many and also his alliance with Japan proved his fame will increase towards the east to be true.
“Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers:
The greater one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage
When the Germany child will observe nothing.”
The ‘beast’ is interpreted as Adolf Hitler and the German army, crossing over to capture France. The ‘iron cage’ might probably refer to Hitler’s tanks, which the great seer, did not know what it was called hundred of years back. Thus, these are some of the Nostradamus predictions that came true, and the prediction of the Second World War and the rise of Hitler, is one of his greatest predictions of all time.
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: Death of the Kennedy Brothers
“The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,
An evil deed foretold by the bearer of a petition.
Another falls at nighttime.
Conflict at Reins, London and a pestilence in Tuscany.” (Century 1, Quatrain 27)
In the year 1963, US President, John. F. Kennedy was shot down by the thunderbolt (gun shot) at 12 in the noon. His brother, Robert Kennedy was shot at 1 am in the morning after 5 years (another falls at nighttime). In the same year of 1963, students rioted in the cities of London and Paris and also there was a huge flood in Florence in 1968, which led to fear of plague or pestilence in the city.
Nostradamus Predictions that Came True: Death of Princess Diana
“The penultimate of the surname of Prophet
Will take Diana [Thursday] for his day and rest:
He will wander because of a frantic head,
And delivering a great people from subjection.” (Century 2, Quatrain 28)
Princess Diana’s boyfriend, Dodi Al- Fayed, was the son of a person named ‘Mohammad’ (The Prophet). That was not his surname, but still. Some translations also say “will take Diana for her day of rest”. This probably indicates her death and the rest that she got forever from the paparazzi. “His day of rest” indicates the Sunday, the day when Princess Diana and Dodi died. It may also indicate that the day when she dies was seen as a public holiday. Several parts of UK was closed down that time, as a mark of respect for the much beloved Princess. The people of UK are known to be emotionally reserved. But the death of the beloved Princess, rocked not only UK but the entire world. Everyone mourned the death of Princess Diana. Thus “Delivering a great people from ruin”. People from various cultures, from various backgrounds, countries, came together to mourn her death.
