century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
The divine evil will surprise the great prince.
Shortly before he was due to marry;
His support and credit will in an instant come to nothing,
For the Shaven Head, counsel will perish.
Under the feigned colours of 7 Shaven Heads,
They will disperse various spies,
Wells and fountains sprinkled with poison,
At the fort of Gennes-Genoa, cannibalism.
The 300 will be of one mind and accord
For the bringing about of their blow-purpose,
20 months after all memory (of)(him) (has lapsed.)
Their King betrayed pretending false hate.
The royal blood will be so very mixed,
The West (or Spanish) will constrain the French (Gaulois)
One will wait till his term-time has expired,
And until the memory of his voice has expired.
From the marine and tributary city,
The Shaven Head will take the Satrapy;
To chase the sordid one who will be against him,
For 14years he will hold the tyranny.
Floods and rivers, they will be evil obstacles,
The old flame of hate not appeased,
To run throughout France, as per the Oracle,
Houses, manors, palace, shaven sect.
The saintly widow on hearing the news,
Of her [rameaux=branches, boughs] offspring placed in perplexity and trouble,
He who is accustomed to appeasing the quarrels,
Through his pursuit of it he will pile up the Shaven Heads.
By the Shaven Head a very bad choice made,
More so through his inability to carry his burden:
In his fury and rage will make a speech,
That to fire and blood he will consign the entire sex.
[ESPEUILLERA? The contriving so greatly plotted? Nostradamus's French is tricky in this verse.]
A long comet will injure the Governor,
Famine, burning fever, fire and fumes of blood:
To all estates of the Jovial ones, great honour,
Sedition through the Shaven heads ignited.
In the place fires set, the plague will cause them to flee,
Times variable, wind, the death of 3 great ones:
From the sky, great thunderbolts of lightning to graze upon the estates of the Shaven heads,
Old one near death, few twigs in the wood to bend.
The chief of the Shaven heads will not make it to the end,
Edicts changed, those locked up set free:
Great one found dead, less of faith, low in standing,
Struck half dead in the mud while pretending.
The great one to be no more, rain, in the wagon (or Wayne) the crystal?
Tumult aroused, abundance of all goods:
Shaven heads, Sacred ones, new ones, old ones terrified,
Ungrateful one elected, complaints, joy, alliance.
[there may be a reference in line 1, to the Charles Wane, better known to us as Ursa Major, the great Bear.]
All to flood, loss to the Shaven headed, Lady,
Flight from the wall, death, all goods in abundance,
Hidden under a cloak he will escape,
For new and old ones, changes in fortune.
The great mourning, supreme alliances,
Great Shaven head dead,
To the entry refusal made, upon return all benefits forgotten,
The murder of a just one committed at a banquet.
To change from good to evil times,
The agreement of the South, of even greater hope:
Of the mourning LVIS, much more, shaky,
Known Shaven heads, neither looked too, or acknowledged.
The world in danger, the kings prosperous,
The Shaven heads agitated by the lack of counsel,
By the Church Kings the people irritated,
By one who will show after what he was not.
They will be restored to full power,
On one point joined in accord, not agreed on others:
All provoked, more betrothed to the Shaven heads,
Many among them to ally and burst out.
The Shaven ones will be deprived of their weapons,
It will greatly increase their argument:
Father Liberty, deceived by the lighting (speed) of the Albanians, (Albonois),
They will gnaw the sects to the bone.
The French original has 'Pere Liber' (the free father) Liber was a Roman god of grape growing and wine, often associated with the Greek gods, Dionysus and Bacchus: also, associated with Ceres an agricultural, thus mother earth goddess. And also, Libera, who was Liber's female equivalent; in reality, they are gods of harvest and affiliated to the moon and the sign of Libra, thus Liberty.
Their protests will be in vain, the failing ones trussed up,
The Shaven heads captured, the pempotan elected;
The 2 Reds and 4 true Crusaders of the cross to fail,
Rains a hindrance to the all-powerful Monarch.
Ogmois is the name the Celtic god, the Romans called Hercules, and the Greeks called Herakles.
