The verses herein directly relate to The ARAB(S). Characters who are also connected to The ARAB(S) are treated separately: see also Byzantium, Hungary, Poland, Spain, France. Additional verses will be added from time to time, and commentary as fitting based on the feedback received to Nostradamus on The ARAB(S).
century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
The great Arab will march forward,
Betrayed by the Byzantium;
Those of ancient ~(Rodes) Rhodes? Will come to meet him,
And even greater harm through the Austrian Hungarians.
Those of Rhodes will demand help,
Through the neglect of their heirs abandoned,
The Empire of Arab will reveal its course,
By the West the cause redressed.
At the break of day and the 2nd crowing of the cock,
Those of Tunis, of Fez and of Bejaia (Algeria) [formerly, Bugia, Nostra' has Bugie.]
The king of Morocco captured by the Arabs, Year 1607 by the liturgy.
Tunis= Tunisia; Fez-Fes, was the capitol of Morocco till 1925, now capitol of fe`s Mekne`s. Nostra has Maroq- to rhyme with coq, line 1: and Q and C, like I and J, and U and V, are endlessly substituted for each other, by Nostra and translation from French to English.
The peaceable duke through violence forced out,
Suddenly discovered as Arab sails seen;
Tripoli, Chios and those Trebizond?
Duke captured, Black Sea and the city deserted.
Chios, Greek island off coast of turkey. Tripoli, Greece. As yet, only Trabzon, (Trebizond) has not been deserted. Tripoli suffered from an Ottoman attack, by Albanian mercenaries in 1770, and later during the Greek war of independence, the Greek forces exterminated the Muslim and Jewish populations. The Ottomans retook it in 1825 and utterly destroyed the city: rebuilt circa 1830 as part of the kingdom of Greece. In 1822, following a Greek revolt Chios was looted and burnt, as many as 120,000 were killed.
In Felix in the country of Arabia,
Will be born one powerful in the Laws of Islam (Mohammad):
To vex Spain and conquer Grenada,
And even more so by sea the people of Liguria (Dalmatia).
Libyan Prince powerful in the west,
Will come to inflame the French very much with Arabia,
Learned in letters he will agree,
To translate the Arabian language (and law) into French.
One can hardly pretend this is a past or even near present situation; for as EL. points out, Arabic-French dictionaries have existed since at least 1505; and from time immoral, the Arabs have been great traders, thus there would have been those all over the west able to trade and understand Arabic. Immoral, is no mistake, for the slave trade is ancient, the Egyptian empire depended on it. Thus the events of this verse concern the future, after a time when people have become ignorant of learning.
The Arab Prince Mars, Sun, Venus, Leo (lion)
The reign of the church will succumb by sea:
Towards Persia very nearly a million men,
The True Serpent will invade Byzantium and Egypt.
The Church of God will be persecuted,
And the churches of the Saints will be plundered:
The child will put out his mother naked in her shift,
The Arabs and the Poles will be allied.
Near Lusatia to assail Hungary,
The herald from Brudes will come to warn them:
Byzantium chief, Salona of Slavonia,
He will come to convert them to the law of the Arabs.
Cydonia, Dubrovnik, the city of St Hieron,
With medical supplies secured will flourish one more,
The king's son dead by the death of 2 Heron,
The Hungarians will convert to the Arab laws of Mohammad.
From the Black Sea, and the great Tatary,
There will be a king who will come to see France (Gaule)
He will pierce through Alani, and Armenia,
And within Byzantium theft and cruel bloody beatings.
Through fire and arms not far from the Black Sea,
He will come from Persia to occupy Trabzon;
Pharos, Methelin to tremble the Sun joyful,
The Adriatic Sea coloured by Arab blood.
Of Trojan blood, will be born a Germanic heart,
Who will come to rise very high in power:
He will drive out the foreign and Arabic people,
Returning the church to its former glory.
For 7years Philip will prosper by fortune,
Beating back the efforts of the Arabs,
Then at his peak, a contrary perplexing affair,
The young Ogmois (Hercules) will sink his fortress into an Abyss.
On the fields of Media, of Arabia and of Armenia,
2 great armies 3 times will assemble,
The host near the bank of the Araxes,
In the land of the great Soliman they will fall.
By night the Iris(rainbow) will appear at Nantes,
By the marine arts to stir up rain:
In the gulf of Arabia, a great fleet (classe) will sink,
while in Saxony a monster will be born of a bear and a sow.
