Marguerite de Navarre (French: Marguerite d'Angoulême, Marguerite d'Alençon, Marguerite de Valois or Marguerite de France),
Reference: See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marguerite_de_Navarre
In Nerac 24kms from Agen was Marguerite's court. It was seen as a centre of enlightenment, hope and communal well-being, facts immortalised in Shakespeare's Love's Labour Lost. Nostradamus lived in Agen from 1533 to 1539 and it, like Nerac, had become an intellectual hub but not one with the generosity of Marguerite's court. There is considerable evidence in Nostradamus' writings that he was influenced by this proximity, sufficiently enough for it to possibly be behind Nostradamus' hidden goals.
In my discussion on C6 Q100 I showed that it provided a cipher for Erasmus and this scholar was one of the many famous visitors to Marguerite's court during the years when Nostradamus was in Agen. Erasmus would have had many things in common with the people in Nerac for he had the same high degree of contacts with the English establishment as did Marguerite. There is therefore a logical reason to think the placement of the anagram in CVI Q100 may be intentional.
It is also known that Anne Boleyn was a close acquaintance of Marguerite as detailed in the Wikeipedia entry on Marguerite (see link at toof section):
This connection with Anne Boleyn can be found in the anagrams of the prophecies as I will demonstrate below. I will begin by highlighting one of Nostradamus significant pointers to the Bourbon line, the line which traces back to Marguerite of Navarre. This requires an introduction to a small time in history, the seven years at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
Florence and the brief Bourbon Kingdom of Etruria.
Wikipedia's entry on Etruria contains the following:
This kingdom and its heritage seems to be well documented in one of Nostradamus' Quatrains.
The Bourbon Lineage in C5 Q39
I believe that C6 Q100 provides evidence that Nostradamus' work was intended to be understood by persons with whom he had first been in contact during 1533 to 1538, people connected to the Bourbon line. The verse C5 Q39 has text that supports this idea since Nostradamus talks of Etruria in terms that demonstrate foreknowledge of its link to Marguerite d'Angouleme, the Queen of Navarre. And underneath the visible text lie powerful anagrams that confirm the connection.C5 Q39
The first line ties its sub ject to a descendant of Marguerite d'Angouleme, Queen of Navarre, who was, according to Wikipedia,:
and according to the same source's entry regarding the fleur-de-lys:
While the fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and members of the House of Bourbon
A most compelling piece of evidence arises from the third line line which says His ancient blood woven by long hand. In other words the real name of his ancestor is woven into the text in full without any form of abbreviation. There is such an anagram and it only occurs in this line of verse. The anagram is d'Angouleme (also de Angouleme), which is one of the popular names of Marguerite and her descendants. This appears next to another which then says equating d'Angouleme (gantique delonguema). The anagram for equating is only found in two other verses. Together they helanswer all the challenges posed by this enigmatic line and completes it so that we have His ancient blood woven by long hand = d'Angouleme.
It is pertinent to note that the connection between Etruria and the Bourbons only applies to the period 1801-1807CE and Nostradamus died some 230 years before these events. It is therefore surely extraordinary that all the details shown above fit so well.
There is as usual much more hidden in this verse and it bears on the lineage of Christ and Mary and the Bourbon line but it must wait; to introduce it here surely overloads and goes beyond the need of showing that the lineage of Marguerite is indeed a sub ject of Nostradamus' Prophecies.
But Marguerite, like Erasmus and Julius Scaliger was not one of the people to whom Nostradamus' secret was addressed, she died in 1549CE six years before Nostradamus' first published his works.
