In honor of the coming year 2016, why don’t we take a look at the past? Let’s check out the most popular soothsayer in human history! After the loss of the first wife and daughter, Nostradamus (Michael de Nostradamus) started focusing on Astrology and seeing his first vision. Over 1000 prophecies gathered and published in the book ‘The Prophecies’ (1555), there are several famous predictions by Nostradamus that came true. He put his prophecy poet into 4-line quatrains and not arranged in chronological order.
The following are a few of Nostradamus’s most interesting forecasts that people believed they fit some remarkable events worldwide.
Which Nostradamus Famous Prophecies Should You Know?
- French Revolution – “From the enslaved populace, songs,
Chants and demands
While princes and lords are held captive in prisons
There will in the future by headless idiots
Be received as divine prayers.”
During 1789, the French people felt sick of the Government’s terrible domination, they decided to start the revolution against the poor aristocratic rule. The peasants (enslaved populace) seized power from Paris Government and forced their demand on royalty. At the same time, the aristocracy (princes and lords) were taken the power and locked in the Bastille (prisons). Finally, they were beheaded (headless idiots).
- The Atomic Bomb – “Near the gates and within two cities
There will be scourges the like of which was never seen,
Famine within plague, people put out by steel,
Crying to the great immortal God for relief.”
From the Nostradamus prophecies, in early August 1945, the US dropped two atomic bombs on the Japan’s island, in (within two cities) Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Lots of people died from this battle, and for those escape from the immediate detonation, they suffered poisonous radiation (crying to the great immortal God for relief).
- The 9/11 Event – “Earthshaking fire from the center of the Earth
Will cause tremors around the New City.
Two great rocks will war for a long time,
The Arethusa will redden a new river.”
