A short yet fascinating history lesson.

Nostradamus was a 16th century Frenchmen known widely for his prophecies. Although some argue he wasn’t able to see the future, others disagree. Several predictions directly from his book can be seen as events that have already happened.

“Fire will burn the blood of the just in London in the year 66”

Many people believe this refers the Great Fire of London which took place in the year 1666. It wiped out a huge chunk of the city leaving 70,000 homes out of 80,000 destroyed.

“The two greatest ones with be at war with one another”

It is believed this was a prediction of World War II seeing that the Allies were against the Axis.  Along with this predictions is a predictions of Hitler himself. “From the depths of West Europe, a young child will be born of poor people, he who by his tongue will seduce a great troop”

The last, and by far the funniest thing he did was right before he died he had a medal plaque inscribed with something and told a trusted friend to bury it with him. Not one person knew what it revealed. After several of his prophecies came true, people began to believe what was buried with him was the biggest prophecy he had every seen. So, hundred of years later in 1700 everyone feared this great prophecy and they decided to dig him up and see what was inscribed in the medal. When they did, the only thing written on it was ‘1700’.
