Nostradamus Century 3, Verse 60

Throughout all Asia great attainder (execution on a whim, without trial.)
Even in Mysia, Lycia, and Pamphilia,
Blood will be shed in absolution,
Of a young Black One filled spiteful cruelty.

Nostradamus Century 6, Verse 25

When the monarchy will be against the war,
The great fisherman will be in ruinous trouble,
The young Black Red One will seize the crown,
The traitors will act on a drizzly day.

Nostradamus Century 5, Verse 29

Freedom will not be recovered,
The Black One will occupy it, fierce, villainous, full of iniquity,
When the matter of the pont (See) is opened,
By Hister, Venice vexed by the republic.

Nostradamus Century 9, Verse 50

Mendosus will soon come to his high reign,
Putting behind a little the Norlaris:
The Red One pale, the virile one (creature) Fills the gap,
The fearful youth (young one) and Barbaric terror.

Interregne. The gap- space, time, interval between the death or removal of one prince or king, and the appointing, anointing, election of another. A time when no one officially is in overall charge.

Nostradamus Century 9, Verse 45

Never will there be one to ask,
The great Mendosus will obtain his Empire;
Far from court they will make countermands,
At Piedmont, Picardy, Paris, tyranny the worst.

Nostradamus Century , Verse

That which will be ravished by young Milve,
Through the Normans of France and Picardy:
The black ones from the temple in the Black-forest,
Will make an inn and fire of Lombardy.

Milve, bastardised to rhyme with Negri-silve, (the Black forest), should read Milan, =a kite, or Latin, Milvus migrans, the black kite.

Nostradamus Century 4, Verse 85

The white coal will be chased by the Black One,
Taken prisoner and led away in a dung cart,
The Moorish Camel upon -with feet tied,
Then the younger one will seal the eyes of the hawk, scoundrel.

[see, same verse under Germany for greater explanation of words.]

Nostradamus Century 6, Verse 57

He who was well advanced in the realm,
Having the Red chief near the hierarchy;
Harsh and cruel, he will make himself greatly feared,
He will succeed to the sacred monarchy.

Nostradamus Century 6, Verse 38

To bring an end to the peace,
The enemies after having conquered Italy;
The Black One hungry for blood, by the Red will be commissioned,
Fire (so much) blood split, the water redonned.

Nostradamus Century 4, Verse 47

The savage Black One, once he has tested his bloody hand through fire, steel and drawn bows:
Each and every one of the people will be so very afraid,
At seeing the greatest ones hanging by their necks and feet.

Nostradamus Century 6, Verse 81

Tears, cries and lamentation, howls of terror,
Inhuman heart, savage, black, living image of death,
Of the Noble ones of Geneva, the Isles, and of Gennes [ genoa-Venice],
Blood to pour, cold famine and mercy to none.

Nostradamus Century 6, Verse 33

At the end of his powers by Alus bloodthirsty,
He will be unable to defend himself by sea,
Between 2 rivers he will fear the military power,
The furious Black One will cause him to repent.

Nostradamus Century 2, Verse 29

The Easterner will leave his seat,
To pass over the Apennine Mountains to see France,
He will strike through the skies, waters and snow,
And smite all and everyone in France.

Nostradamus Presage 39

Because of anger, nuptials, wedding songs,
Into 3 parts Red ones and Shaven heads separated:
For the young Black one, his soul restored by exposure to the fire,
Converted to the great Neptune Ogmois.

Ogmois is the name the Celtic god, the Romans called Hercules, and the Greeks called Herakles.

Nostradamus Century 7, Verse 5

The wine on the table will be spilled,
The third one will not have that which he pretended to possess,
Twice descended from the Black One of Parma,
Perouse to Pisa will do that which he expected.

Nostradamus Presage 56

He will not be placed, the new ones chased out,
Black one of the Lion and the great one will hold on strongly:
Rearming, the Exiles chassed even more,
To sing of victory, consoled but not free.
