6. The Rise of Napoleon :

The Rise of Napoleon

“ PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood,

To swim in praise, the great one to flee to the confluence.

He will refuse entry to the Piuses,

The depraved ones and the Durance will keep them imprisoned. “

There are innumerable references to Napoleon throughout Nostradamus’ works, describing specific events in Napoleon’s long military career which influenced the future of France. There are some who also feel that certain Bible references point to Napoleon (Bible – Apollyon) as the messianic anti-christ who attempts to seat himself as both military and religious head of the western world. It was in fact Napoleon who placed the Pope’s crown on his own head and held the Pope prisoner for a period of 42 months, thus fulfilling a famous Bible prophecy.

This is again one of the most famous prophecy of nostradamus, in which he directly mentions a name. If The letters PAU, NAY, LORON are re-arranged they form “Napaulon Roy”,or Napoleon Bonaparte, the fabled emperor of France. In this quatrain Nostradamus mentions about the rise of napoleon and describe napoleon as “more of fire than of blood”.The ‘Piuses’ of the third line are the Popes Pius VI and Pius VII, who were imprisoned.


7. Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion :

Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion

” From the human flock nine will be sent away,

Separated from judgment and counsel

Their fate will be sealed on departure

Kappa, Thita, Lambda the banished dead err. “

The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members. Although the exact timing of the death of the crew is unknown, several crew members are known to have survived the initial breakup of the spacecraft. However, the shuttle had no escape system and the impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was too violent to be survivable.

The mission had generated huge media interest because of the participation of a teacher Christa McAuliffe who was supposed to be the first Teacher in Space. Among America’s Darkest hours the Challenger disaster distinctly stands out as it was called an Educational mission because of McAuliffe’s presence.

The Rogers Commission appointed by the then president Ronald Reagan, found the cause of the crash to be a defective O-ring made by Thiokol. Believers of the prophecy somehow arrange the letters from Kappa, Thita and Lamda to fit the name of the company. However, they tend to ignore the fact that seven died in the disaster, not nine (nine will be sent away from the human flock).


8. Princess Diana’s death :

Princess Diana's Death

Princess Diana of Wales died on August 31, 1997 after sustaining extensive injuries from a car accident. At that time, she was with her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed, Fayed’s bodyguard, and the driver. The only person who survived the accident was the bodyguard . Earlier, it was thought that the paparazzi were to blame, but a 1999 French judicial investigation conclusion pointed the finger at the driver, Henri Paul who was found to be under the influence of alcohol and had traces of a tranquilizer in his body. The fact that Diana’s name is in the text speaks a lot to Nostradamus’ followers because specific names are a rarity in his works.

” The penultimate of the surname of Prophet

Will take Diana for his day and rest:

He will wander because of a frantic head,

And delivering a great people from subjection. “

Pay careful attention here: The father of Princess Diana’s boyfriend, Dodi Al-Fayed, was named Mohamed (“the Prophet” who gave birth to islam).

“wander because of a frantic head”, could refer to the world-wide grief shared by people of many nationalities whose only contact with the Princess was through photographs. We know for a fact that Diana was a public figure, infact she was ranked 3rd on the BBC’s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, outranking The Queen and other British monarchs !!

“Delivering a great people from subjection.” Diana’s death aroused an unprecedented expression of emotion in England. Here was a nation reputed to be emotionally reserved, repressed and instinctively cynical of all things sentimental. But suddenly the nation was rocked by a tidal wave of compassion with people leaving public offerings of flowers, candles, cards and personal messages outside Kensington Palace for many months after her death.


9. Assassination of John and Robert Kennedy :

John & Robert Kennedy

” The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,

The evil deed predicted by the bearer of a petition

According to the prediction another falls at night time.

Conflict in Reims, London, and pestilence in Tuscany. “

Believers are certain that the deaths of the Kennedy brothers are part of the Nostradamus prophecies that came true. John F. Kennedy, who heralded a new future for America was assassinated in the afternoon of November 22, 1963. The thunderbolt is the prefect analogy for a sniper’s bullet coming out of nowhere which killed JFK who was travelling in a Presidential motorcade with his wife, the Texan governor, and the governor’s wife.

5 years later Robert F. Kennedy decided to run for president (he had served as the Attorney-General when JFK was president). ‘The Great American Dream’ hopes were renewed by the political rise of Robert Kennedy, who won a decisive victory in the California primary. The Kennedy charisma was back and, riding on a wave of political support and public euphoria, Robert seemed destined for the White House. However just a few minutes after delivering his victory speech in New York, Robert Kennedy was assassinated.

The last line however continues to remain a mystery.


10. 9/11 Terrorist Attack :

9_11 Terrorist Attack

“ Volcanic fire from the center of the earth

will cause trembling around the new city:

Two great rocks will make war for a long time.

Then Arethusa will redden a new river. “

“ In the year 1999, in the seventh month,

from the sky will come the great King of Terror,

bringing back to life the great King of the Mongols.

Before and after, Mars to reign by good fortune. ”

The mention of “New City” ,”Center of earth”(world trade center) and “Towers”(Twin Towers) is believed to foretell the 9/11 terror attacks. Arethusa is believed to be another anagram used by Nostradamus, which many connect to “Laden”. On that fateful morning, the hijackers intentionally crashed the jets into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings (which housed the offices of Morgan Stanley, Bank of America and Lehman Brothers among several others). Both towers collapsed within two hours, destroying nearby buildings and damaging others. There were no survivors from any of the flights.

More intriguing, however, are the following four lines.

” In the City of God there will be a great thunder,

Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,

while the fortress endures,

the great leader will succumb. ”

They were written before 9/11 by a college student named Neil Marshall. He included them in an article in which, ironically enough, he was debunking Nostradamus. He wanted to show that if you write something vague enough it can be interpreted to mean almost anything. An unknown hoaxer lifted the lines from Marshall’s article and began to circulate them via email. In fact for a brief time following 9/11, Nostradamus became the most popular search term on every internet search engines.
