century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ogmois is the name the Celtic god, the Romans called Hercules, and the Greeks called Herakles.
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.
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.
