The verses herein directly relate to The BRANCH(ES). Characters who are also connected to The BRANCH(ES) are treated separately: see also, France. Additional verses will be added from time to time, and commentary as fitting based on the feedback received to Nostradamus on The BRANCH(ES).
century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
Brothers and sisters in diverse places held captive,
to find themselves passing near the monarch:
Contemplating on his offspring (rameaux) attentively,
Displeasing to see the marks on chins, noses and foreheads.
Through the branch(rameau) of a valiant person,
Of France, infamous: because of the unhappy father
Honours, riches, troubles in his old age,
For having believed in the advice of a simpleton.
Because of stormy sea a foreign ship,
Will approach an unrecognised port,
Notwithstanding the signals from the branch (rameau) of the palm,
After death, pillage: good advice arrives too late.
For palm, original has 'palmerin' a simple bastardisation to make it rhyme with Marin, end of line 1. For palme is French for palm, which as in English can signify the palm of the hand, or a palm tree.
