I came across some prophecies about a 'Great French King' that would
appear before the Anti-Christ comes. I had to chuckle ... a French King
and monarchy reborn? A 'Great' French King even ... Anyways,
I'll pass this along and ya'll can decide for yourselves what these mean.
Some don't say 'French' ... but they do say 'King' and fit in with the others
that say 'French.
Some of these I found to be frightening .... hope they don't happen.
I put the person's name, a little something about them, and then the
prophecy quote under their name.
1 - St. Mehodius (4th Century) Bishop. Died a martyr -
'A day will come when the enemies of Christ will boast of having conquered
the whole world. They will say: 'Christians cannot escape now!' But a
Great king will arise to fight the enemies of God. He will defeat them, and
peace will be given to the world, and the Church will be freed from her
(this one sounds like it's just wishful thinking to me)
2 - St. Remigius (5th Century) Bishop of Rheims, France -
'Take notice that the Kingdom of France is predestined by God for the
defense of the Roman Church which is the only true Church of Christ.
This kingdom shall someday be great among the kingdoms of the earth,
and shall embrace all the limits of the Roman Empire, and shall submit
all other kingdoms to it's own scepter.'

'When the entire world, and in a special way France, and in France
especially the provinces of the north, of the east, and above all

greatest miseries and trials, then the provinces shall be comforted
by a prince who had been exiled in his youth, and who shall recover
the crown of the lilies. This prince shall extend his dominion over the
At the same time, by the will of God, a most holy man shall receive the
Papacy, who will be most perfect in every spiritual perfection. This Pope
will have with him the great Monarch, a most virtuous man, who shall be
an eminent leader of the holy line of French Kings. This great Monarch
shall assist the Pope in the reformation of the whole earth. Many
nations and their princes that are living in error and impiety (at that time)
shall be converted, and an admirable peace shall reign among men during
many years because the wrath of God shall be appeased through their
repentance, penance, and good works. There will be one common law,
only one faith, one baptism, one religion.
All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome, and shall pay homage
to the Pope. But after an extended period of time fervor will cool,
iniquity will abound, and moral corruption shall become worse than
ever before, which shall bring upon mankind the last and worse
persecution of Anti-Christ, and the end of the world.'

great armies, and hurl back the tyrants out of his empire.

Monastery and Archbishop of Mayence. Chroniclre of prophecy.
' Our principle Doctors (teachers of the faith) agree in telling us, that
towards the end of time one of the descendants of the kings of France
(Gaul) shall reign over all the Roman Empire; and that he shall be the
greatest of the French Monarchs, and the last of his race. After having
governed well his kingdom, he shall go to Jerusalem, and lay down his

Roman and Christian Empire.

shall come to Jerusalem and lay down his scepter and crown on

his kingdom, he will go in the end to Jerusalem and will lay down
his scepter and his crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately
afterwards, Antichrist will come.
8 - St. Thomas a'Becket (12th Century) Archbishop of Canterbury.

Testament, and all the works of the Son of God, I understood....
Peace will return to the world when the White Flower again takes
possession of the throne of France. During this period of peace,
people will be forbidden to carry weapons, and iron will be used only
for making agricultureal implements and tools. Also during this period,
the land will be very productive, and many Jews, heathens, and
heretics will join the Church.
For the latter times will be more evil and corrupt in the eyes of God.
The children of God will be persecuted by means most hateful in the
eyes of God. The Throne of The Last Roman Catholic Empire will
crumble, and the scepter will fall out of the trembling hand of him who
sits on the throne. (By this time the Great King will be a very old man).
Hence all justice will cease, or all will be trodden under foot'

reign on earth.'

'Spoilation, pillaging, and devastation of that most famous city
which is the capital and mistress of France will take place when
the Church and the world are grievously troubled. The Pope will
change his residence and the Church will not be defended for
25 months or more because, during that time, there will be no Pope
in Rome, no emperor and no ruler in France. But after this, a young
captive Prince shall recover the Crown of the Lilies and shall
extend his dominions all over the world.

march. They shall arrive near Poitiers without meeting any serious
resistance, but there they shall be crushed by the defenders of the West,
who shall pursue them. From other directions their provisions shall be
cut off, and they shall suffer very serious losses. They will attempt to
retire towards their country, but very few of them shall ever reach it.
The Communists of Paris, after their defeat, shall spread themselves
through all France, and will be greatly multiplied. They shall seize arms;
they shall opress the people of order. Lastly, a civil war shall break out
everywhere. These wicked people shall become masters in the North,
East and Southwest of France. They will imprison very many persons,
and ill be guilty of more massacres. They will attempt to kill all the priests
and all the relious. But this shall not last long. People will imagine that
all is lost; but the good God shall save all. It will be like a sign of the last
judgement ... God shall come to help; the good shall triumph when the
return of the king shall be announced. This shall reestablish a peace
and propserity without example. Religious shall fourish again better

to the Holy See. Then the Pope shall send to France a special legate
... In consequence of the information received, his Holiness himself
shall nominate a most Christian king for the government of France.
