Nostradamus Century 2, Verse 50

When those of Hainaut, Ghent and Brussels,
See the siege laid before Langres {France},
Behind their flanks there will be very cruel wars,
The old wound will cause more harm than the enemy.

Nostradamus Century 4, Verse 19

Before Rouen the siege will be laid by the Insubians, (those of Lombardy),
By land and sea the passages blocked off;
By Hainaut, Flanders, Ghent and those of Liege,
Appeased by gifts, to ravage the shores.

The (intended) siege betrayed to the enemies;
In the night when they believed it safe to sleep,
Close to Brabant those of Liege will march out.

For the army of the great Belgium Prince to pass over;
Deep into and not far from Brussels,
Passing over seven put to the sword.

At 2 years of age raised high by sad news:

And brought to Malings (Malines=French for Mechelen), and Brussels.

Nostradamus Century 2, Verse 49

The councillors of the first monopoly,
The conquerors seduced to Malta:
Rhodes and Byzantium exposing their pole for them,
On land will fail, the pursuers fleeing.
