One of the most famous, and perhaps controversial prophets, astrologers and occultists of all time was reputedly born, one Michel de Nostredame, in Saint-Remy-de-Provence in southern France, today in 1503.
His prophecies, usually in the form of quatrains, or four line verses, have been widely and deeply studied ever since his own time. Many claim he has successfully predicted events like, the death of Charles I of England in 1648/9, the Great Fire of London in 1666, the rise of Napoleon and Hitler and many more besides.
However, it must be said that the often vague wording of his quatrains does allow much scope for interpretation, especially as he does not normally include dates in his prophecies.
One of the few prophecies which does have a date, namely July (or the seventh month, which could mean the seventh astrological month, October) 1999, predicted some awful, warlike a event and the emergence of a powerful ‘king’. As far as I can tell, nothing much during that time, or even that whole year, matches this prophecy.
