The verses herein directly relate to Germany. Characters who are also connected to Germany are treated separately: see also, France, Duke, Belgium, Celts, Gt Pontiff, Barbarians, the Cock, Lion< and the Eagle. Additional verses will be added from time to time, and commentary as fitting based on the feedback received to Nostradamus on Germany.

He will transfer to the great Germany,
Brabant and Flanders, Ghent, Bruges and Boulogne;
The truce false, the great Duke of Armenia,
Will assail Vienna, and the Cologne.
JH, seems to think this verse is concerned with Hitler and Russia? Why do these Authors always look to hindsight for answers?
The great ruin of holy things not far off,
Provence, Naples, Sicily, Sees and ponce (See and Pontiffs; more truthfully, churches and priests of all ranks.),
In Germany, at the Rhine and Cologne,
Vexed to death by those of Magonce.
Simply Anagram, not that previous Authors realised, 'once Mag', Persians.]
The election in Frankfort
Will be voided, Milan in opposition,
The closest follower will seem so very strong,
He will chase him beyond the Rhine and marches.
When the greatest one will carry off the prise- or prisoner?
Of Nuremberg, Augsburg and those of Basel;
Through Cologne (Agrippine) the chief of Frankfort recaptured,
They will Cross 'par Flamant jusques en Gale (through Flanders as far as Gaul.]
The Celtic river will change its shore,
No longer will it hold the city of Cologne,
All, changed, except the old language,
Saturn, Leo, Mars, Cancer to ravish.
When the columns of wood are shaken,
By the harsh tyranny, concealed by the Red One,
So many will be seen assembling without, that Vienna and the country of Austria will tremble.
A difficult verse; it is line 2 that is most awkward. 'd'Auster conduict, couverte de rubriche.'
EL. JH. render it basically the same, 'led by the south wind, covered in red-red ochre,' MR, has a slight variant 'south wind seems covered in blood.'
Considering the mention of Austria, and Vienna, I am mildly surprised the Authors did not twist it towards Hitler, being that they have such a liking to treat 'istra, ister, Hister etc. to him; why not Au-ster or Aus-ter.
Even so such a line makes no sense.
In this case, the 'auster' is austere, as, harsh, stern, severe, without pity.
The 2nd word is, Conduict. While it may carry the sense of conducting or leading; it also conveys, bringing on; a training, or government; also, a gutter, or stone trench. But in this case I am inclined to a change in power or government. I suspect that AUSTER, is indeed a reference to Hister, but not of Germany but the one of Asia or Africa.
The weak ships will be assembled and united,
False enemies the strongest on the ramparts:
Weak overcome, Bratislava trembles,
Lubeck and Meissen will join the Barbarians.
Bratislava, on the Danube, capitol of Slovakia. Lubeck & Meissen, Germany.
Within the Danube and the Rhine will come to drink the great Camel, not regretting it:
Rhone to tremble, and even more so those of Loire,
Close to the Alps the Cock to destroy him.
Through the deception of fraudulent victory,
Two fleets made one, the Germans rebel,
The chief and his son murdered in the tent,
Florence and Imola pursued into Rome.
The black coal (Charbon -coal, or plague) by the black will be chased,
Made prisoner carried off in a dung cart,
The Moorish Camel upon feet interlaced,
(tied at ankles, one foot over the over, I have seen this practiced on cows and horses etc. general to avoid them kicking?)
Then the younger one seals the eyes of the hobreau.
We have 'cillera' of ciller, to seal, or, sow- up the eyelids of a hawk. Hobreau, hobby hawk, also, mongrel, or, one whose mother or father is of low parentage, as a poor woman who marries a titled personage.
The great one of Magonce of thirst to die,
Will be deprived of his great dignity,
Those of Cologne will come to complain so much.
That the great groppe will be thrown into the Rhine.
groppe? Fish? EL. & JH. Say it is low Latin for haunch or rump, but I can find know justification of it? Perhaps their knowledge of Latin is better than their French? I am inclined to think it is a gross (intended) mistake, referring to the Camel, who came to quench his thirst in the Danube and the Rhine?
Last word line 1, 'e/teindre, there be no such word as esteindre? It is bastardised from 'et teindre'= and to die.
After, there will come from the furthest countries,
A German Prince on a throne of Gold:
The bondage and waters encountered,
Her time of reverence over, the Dame pays homage; or is in bondage.
In life, fortune and death, of gold, vile and sordid,
Will be in Saxony not recently elected,
From Brunswick, he will demand a token of love,
Falsely to make restitution to deceive the people.
Century 10, Verse 46 is a difficult verse when considered on its own merit, which unfortunately is exactly what JH. & MR. did.
'Ou richesse est peches'
Where wealth is, offences are. [Cot.]
Century 10, Verse 46 connects with the previous Century 2, Verse 87. A prince who seats himself on a golden throne, no matter what he pretends to be, can neither be just or wise. For? do we not say, never judge a book by its cover? Or, a pretty face all too often hides an evil heart?
The great royal one of gold, by brass increased,
The agreement broken, war opened by a young one:
People afflicted by chief lamented (they will regret electing him.)
The land will be covered in Barbarian blood.
Close to Lake Geneva it will be led,
By a foreign whore wishing to betray the city,
Before son (her-its) murder at Augsburg the great suite, (followers-train.)
And those of the Rhine will come to assault it.
EL. JH. MR. all get it wrong, all give foreign maiden, or young foreign girl? They never seem to remember what they have read in other verses. They have a 1200, pieces of a puzzle before them and they fail to see how one piece connects to another, for the young whore is mentioned in other verses.
As my good and learned friend R. Cotgrave, would say, from the Cot to the Grave they have learned nothing.
'Garse-Garce.' Wench, lass, girl; and (as we commonly use the first) a punk or whore.
'amour de garse, saut de chien ne dure si l'on de dit, tien'
Whores and dogs fawn on a man no longer than he feeds them.
In Germany, there will appear many diverse sects,
Coming very close to ignorant paganism,
The heart captured and returns small,
They will return to paying the true tithe.
EL. & MR. have 'happy', JH, 'blissful' where I have ignorant, the French being 'heureux' which does indeed signify, delight, bliss, happiness, etc. however, they have failed their English test; for nobody, is happy, or lives in bliss, unless they are ignorant of reality, and truth.
A new sect of philosophers
Heedless of death, gold, honours and riches;
Will not be limited by the borders of the mountains of Germany,
And through their supporters they will gain power by the masses.
The chief of Scotland with 6 from Germany,
By the people of the eastern seas will be captured:
They will be transported past Gibraltar and Spain,
A gift in Persia, to the fearsome new king.
EL. JH. MR. all phrase the last line as if the new king, was in fear- apprehensive. But that is opposite to reality; he is not fearful but seriously to be feared. Why on earth would an Eastern king be afraid of 6 Germans and a Scottish leader? Who were presented as gifts to him, to dispose of however he wished.
A captain of the great Germany,
To come to render through false promises
To the king of kings, the aid of the Hungarians,
That his rebelLion will cause a great flow of blood.
People of Germany remember this verse, for a king on a golden throne is like a one- legged man walking a tightrope. And the people of Hungry will have thrown their love of cappuccino into the dust.
War, thunder, many camps deserted,
Terror and noise, assaults on the frontier:
The greatest fails, pardon to the exiles,
Germans, Spanish, by sea banners of the Barbarians.
