Nostradamus-Fulfilled Prophecies

Nostradamus was born as Michel de Nostredame, in 1503. After his family was struck by plague and none remained except for Nostradame, he moved to Italy. He then intended to write an Almanac. Almanac's success had such impact that, he decided to write it on an yearly basis. It was while writing this Almanac that he had latinized his name to Nostradamus.

Nostradamus was a man who was way ahead of his time. He was a physician, astronomer and astrologer. Nostradamus wrote his predictions in the form of short poems consisting four lines called the Quatrains. Nostradamus completed a total of 942 quatrains, which were organized into centuries(100 Quatrains) and 46 Quatrains make a century.

In the posts that will follow we shall look into each of the centuries in detail.

In the present post, we shall look into the fulfilled Prophecies of Nostradamus.

The Death of King Henry II.

The Quatrain goes thus.

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.
King Henry

The young lion will overcome the older one,
On the field of combat in a single battle
Henry II ignored the forewarnings of Nostradamus. Here are the details of his death. He participated in a joustling contest, against Comte de Montgomery, Montgomery was younger than Henry. Both had lions embossed on their shields.

Two wounds made one, and then he will die a cruel death.

Montgomery had failed to lower his lance which shattered, sending a large splinter through Henry's gilded visor (golden cage). The result was two moral wounds One splinter spliced eye; the other impaled his temple just behind the eye. Both the splinters from the lance penetrated his brain. Henry lived for ten days in agony, thus fulfilling the Nostradamus' prophecy that he would die a cruel death.
