In 1840 the French magazine L'Oracle published a story told by the baron of Manonville in his diary. During the Revolution, in May 1793, he and some other royalists were in the abbey of Orval, that belonged to the Austrian Netherlands and was situated on the border with France. There was a war between Austria and France, and the republican troops of general Loison had sacked the abbey, but where chased by the Austrian army.

An old monk showed the baron a booklet, written in 16th century French, which for centuries had gathered dust in the archives of the abbey. The booklet was titled Sure Prophecies revealed by the Lord to a Solitary for the Consolation of God's children and was printed in 1544, in Luxembourg. The prophecies seemed to predict a restoration of the monarchy in France.

Scholars noticed quickly that there were a lot of similarities between both prophecies and the quatrains of Nostradamus, who possibly stayed between 1542 and 1544 in Orval...

Nostradamus and the Prophecy of Orval

Was it a fake prophecy... or a genuine?
