century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
One opposite in disposition will attain the great Empire,
Distant from goodness even more so from happiness:
Ruled by one issued not far from the brothel,
Corrupt, realm in great sorrow.
The old one frustrated in his principal hope,
He will come to be the head of the Empire:
20months he will hold the realm with great foresight-power,
Tyrannical, cruel by giving in to one worse.
If he wasn't bad enough, he who advises him will make worse.
From simple soldier, he will attain to Empire,
From buskins to the longue robe:
Valiant in arms, to the church oh, so dire,
To vex the priests like a sponge sucks up water.
In Avignon the chief of the whole Empire,
Will make a stop at Paris which is utterly desolated (only dogs, cats and vermin will remain):
The Tricast will hold back the Annibalique anger,
Lyons will be consoled by evil through the change.
The great Empire will soon be desolated
And transferred to near the Ardennes forest:
The 2 bastards beheaded by the oldest one,
And Aenobarbe, with the hawk nose will rule.
The nautical oar (Rame- branch) will desire, or seek the shadows,
Then it will come to provoke the great Empire:
The Aegean sea encumbered by wood
Impeding the water, diverted to the Tyrrhenian sea.
Before the coming of the change of Empire,
A very amazing deed will occur:
The field changes, the column of porphyry
Placed, transferred to a new rock.
The French one who will hold the Empire through war,
Will be by his beautiful younger brother betrayed:
By an untamed vaulting horse to be dragged,
For the deed the brother will be hated for a long time.
The Lily of the Dauffois carried into Nancy,
As far as Flanders the Elector of the Empire:
New confinement of the great Montmorency,
Outside the approved place delivered to obvious punishment.
Dauffois, in most likely the Dauphin the heir to the French throne.
At night, the highest one strangled in bed
Because of spending to long with the blond elect,
The Empire enslaved by 3 in substitution,
Put to death packet and paper not read.
There will never be a single soul left alive to ask,
The great Mendosus will obtain his Empire,
Far from court, he will make a contrary demand,
In Piedmont, Picardy. Paris, the tyranny the worst.
The great Empire everyone being endeavour for it?
One upon all the others will come to obtain it,
But of a short duration will be his reign and being,
2 years by the navy sustained and rotten.
Pourra, as pourri=rotten, foul, putrefied.
