The Quotes in this section are related to the works of Lux Nova and his studies and analysis of the Works and Prophecies of Nostradamus. Lux Nova provides separate themed books of Nostradamus Prophecies, each of which can be accessed in the Secret Vault. This Quote or 'Extract' if you prefer, draws reference from the following books by Lux Nova:
Quand on viendra le grand Roy parenter
Avant qu'il ayt du tout l'ame rendue
celuy qui moins le viendra lamenter,
Par Lyon, d'Aigles, croix couronne vendue.
Authors works consulted for variations in French: (a) John Hogue. (b) Henry C. Roberts. (c) Mario Reading. (page 698,) (d) Edgar Leoni. French rendered the same except. (b) has a very odd line 3, which appears nowhere else as far as I know. It is rendered. 'On le verra bien tost apparenter,' which he renders as 'He shall be seen presently to be allied.'
Rendue= rendered; restored, yielded or given back Lamenter= to weep, wail, lament, mourn, complain pitifully. Further insights.
There are a few points to note on this one. Edgar Leoni Wrongly takes 'parenter' last word 1st line, as the Latin, 'parentare', which he states means, to give the last rights to the dead. This is not correct, Parentare, etc. is to hold a memorial service in honour of the dead parents, or relatives, or, to offer sacrifices to the dead: they are hardly the same thing. The French, parenter, is a kinsman, cousin, ally, and parente, is, parentage. Linage, blood, stock, family, kindred. Jean-Charles de Fontbrune. Takes it the same way as Edgar Leoni. And Mario Reading goes voodoo?
This great king may well be the father of those who come to pay their last respects, or a kinsman or ally at the least. In the last line, it has Lion, with capitol, the rest without, implying that it is the Lion, who laments the king's passing least, and that it is him that sells or betrays, the Eagles, the crown and the Cross. (the Eagles-standards, the crown what it is and the Cross the church?)
When they will come to see the great king and kinsman,
Before he has completely given up the ghost,
The same one who will come to mourn him least,
By the Lion, Eagles, Cross and crown sold.
