Famous Fulfilled Prophecies
Death of Henry II
The young lion will overcome the older one,
On the field of combat in a single battle;
He will pierce his eyes through a golden cage,
Two wounds made one, then he dies a cruel death.
(Century 1, Quatrain 35)
This quatrain foretelling the death of King Henry II of France in a jousting accident is one of the most famous, predocumented, and successfully
fulfilled prophecies in history.
"In June 1559, Henry II ignored all warnings that Nostradamus gave him and participated in a jousting tournament against the Comte de Montgomery.
Both men used shields embossed with lions. Montgomery was six years younger than Henry. A tournament is a field of ritual single combat.
During the final bout, Montgomery failed to lower his lance in time. It shattered, sending a large splinter through the king's gilded visor (golden
cage). Along with minor punctures in the face and throat, there were two mortal wounds. One splinter destroyed the king's eye; the other impaled his
temple just behind the eye. Both penetrated his brain. Henry lingered for ten agonizing days before dying a cruel death. "
I wouldn't say that he was wrong 100% of the time.
I googled Prophecy for Dummies and came up with no book of that title. Do you have an author or info where you can get the book? It is not on
