The verses herein directly relate to PHILIP. Characters who are also connected to PHILIP are treated separately: see also Empire, Italy, Byzantium. Additional verses will be added from time to time, and commentary as fitting based on the feedback received to Nostradamus on PHILIP.
Yellow Text indicates a link to a supporting book, century or verse from Nostradamus
For 7years fortune will make Philip prosper,
He will beat back the efforts of the Arabs:
Then at his peak a perplexing contrary business,
The young Ogmois will sink his fort.
Sink? It would be easy enough to simply render it, destroy his fort, or stronghold but the word used is Abismera, from Abysme= engulfed, thrown into, or swallowed, by a whirlpool or bottomless pit; considering such events are described in other verses it is important to show the difference.
