century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
He who will have been for the ByzantinePrince,
Will be taken away by the Prince of Toulouse:
The faith of Foix through the chief of Tolentino
Will fail him, not refuting the bride.
Divided by 2 heads and 3 arms.
The great will be vexed by waters:
Some of great ones among them led astray in exile,
Byzantium had pressed by the head of Persia.
The even greater sail (fleet) out of Zara,
Near to Byzantium he will carry out his enterprise:
Loss to enemy and friend will not be,
The 3rd upon both will inflict great pillage and capture.
Century 8 Verse 81 From Sicily, will come a disturbance, To vex the enterprise of Philip and his tributary.?
The Byzantine [prince.] making sacrifice,
After having retaken Cordoba for himself:
His path long rest pamplation?
The prey passing by sea the Colongna captured.
The councillors of the first monopoly,
The conquerors seduced to Malta:
Rhodes and Byzantium exposing their pole for them,
On land will fail, the pursuers fleeing.
From the Black Sea and the great Tatary,
There will be a king who will come to see France,
He will strike through Alanya and Armenia,
And within Byzantium he will leave his bloody rod.
Alanya is a city in the district of Antalya province, on the southern coast of Turkey. Due to its strategic position on a small peninsula into the Med Sea below the Taurus Mountains, it has been a local stronghold for many Mediterranean Empires.
The Arab Prince of Mars (war) Sun, and Venus, the Lion,
Through the seas will destroy the power and reign of the Church:
Towards Persia nearly a million men,
The true Serpent will invade Byzantium and Egypt.
