Henry Epistle 1558, Religious Wars and the Quatrains in Nostradamus' Prophecies.


© Allan Webber March 2013, 2021.

In the past few weeks I have been preparing the way to present the connection between Nostradamus' Prophecies and the material in his Epistle to Henry dated 1558. Some of the preparations involved making a new translation of the original works to preserve the wording used by Nostradamus and to insert reference points that make it easier for myself and readers to find passages where they become relevant to my presentation.

I have also been using the material in the Epistle to identify those verses in the Prophecies that have the strongest connections.

It has for instance two sections that seem to narrate much the same tale with both preceded by poorly constructed biblical calendars and both covering a disorderly tale of the religious wars that Nostradamus claimed would befall mankind.

The framework of the Epistle to Henry 1558.

I intend to use this first section to present the groundwork that offers a real possibility of showing that Nostradamus' work is highly intelligible. I want to begin by using his own words to justify my approach. I intend to show that the Epistles narrative is not intended to be prophetic but is a cipher list with a set of repeated identifiers.

Using these I can show that these identifiers are found as anagrams in certain verses in the Prophecies. And these verses have wording that has high correlation to the wording used in the Epistle. I will also show some of the unusual patterns that lie in the key words this process identifies and which increase the probability that these words are the means by which Nostradamus Prophecies can be interpreted.

In my other papers readers can find that I have used both the Preface of 1555 and the Epistle of 1558 to unravel the three great mutations that Nostradamus foresaw. The Preface offers a great deal of information on the flood and fire-in-the-sky events and it also yields many of the secrets about the astronomic calculations employed by Nostradamus.

When one reads the latter part of the Epistle it is clear that Nostradamus is alluding to the mutation involving religion. It is about the main protagonists, the places, the wars and the effects upon the populace.

So I begin by showing some of the sections that highlight our path. The first of these is at the end of the 1558 Epistle where Nostradamus clearly links the content of the Epistle to his calculation method and the contents of The Prophecies' quatrains.

"All these figures represent the just adaptation of the divine letters to heavenly visible things, namely, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and the others conjoined, as can be seen at more length in some quadrins (quatrains). I would have calculated more profoundly and integrated them even further, most Serene King, but for the fact that some given to censure would raise difficulties"

Below is an early section in the Epistle which acts as a summary to the content, methods and intent of the Epistle.

"So I have dedicated my nocturnal and prophetic calculations, which are composed out of a natural instinct, accompanied by a poetic furore rather than in accord with the strict rules of poetry. And in the most part they have been composed and are in accord with astronomical calculations corresponding to the years, months and weeks of the regions, countries and most of the towns and cities of all Europe, including Africa and part of Asia. By changing of [these] regions [to ones] which approach the greater part of all these climates, and which consist of a natural [similar] grouwe can answer some one who needs to blow his own [trumpet/nose];  the algorithm will be as easy as the understanding of its meaning is difficult. Nostradamus Epistle 1558

And it follows, O most humanistic King that the greater part of the quatrains prophecies are so improper, that people have been given no way to see into them let alone understand them. 

"Nevertheless, I wanted to leave a record in writing of the years, towns, cities and regions in which most of the events will come to pass, even those of the year 1585 and of the year 1606. Action commencing from the present time, which is March 14, 1557, and going far beyond [this time] to the events which will take place at the beginning of the seventh millenary, when from much of what my profound astronomical calculations and other knowledge can make out there is a little extension where the adversaries of Jesus Christ and his Church will strongly proliferate."

The words in these passages were not chosen lightly and have great significance; for instance the enigmatic sentence given below is a guide that tells us his words don't apply directly to the names and places given but are sub stitutional allusions to those that are true.

"By changing of [these] regions [to ones] which approach the greater part of all these climates, and which consist of a natural [similar] grouwe can answer some one who needs to blow his own [trumpet/nose];  the algorithm will be as easy as the understanding of its meaning is difficult."


What we can uncover from reading the Epistle is the topical references which are to be used in searching the quatrains. In doing this research I have found some unusual patterns and I want to present them here so that they can be tested as I go further into the analysis of the relationship between the quatrains and the Religious Wars of the Epistle.

These patterns involve the use of capital letters as markers of key ciphers linking the quatrains to the themes in the Epistle.

The words I chose to start my research involved the ideas of religion raised in the Epistle. These were pagan, heretic, religion, sects, cults and faith. They also included words such as countries, touuns(towns), cities, estates and states.

Below are my findings for these and other key words. The columns show the lettering that forms the anagram in each verse (together with Centuries, Quatrain, line). I have used the symbol ſ in place of the long-ess found in Nostradamus' work because the long-ess may not show on all computers.

  Religion/s Pagan/s Heretic/s/al Sect/s Cults Faith/s

      5.84.1 hreetci   9.36.2 cult    
          9.80.3 tLuc    

Note the strange distribution of each of the words in the above table; religion/s and faith/s are confined to the last three centuries while ancient ideas such as paganism, heresy and sects are restricted in the main to those Centuries published before the Epistle.

Looking at the list involving cult we see that the only ones involving a marker based on a capital or a long-ess occur in the last three Centuries while all those before them have no marker. I have highlighted two verses where there is overlap between the words in this list; even with this limited data we can see potential signs of relevance with the idea of paganism being allotted to sects and cults. The other highlighted verse shown in red identifies one used later in this presentation.

      10.5.1 tnouu        
      10.30.1 tnouu        

It will be interesting to see whether the fact that all four anagrams of 'countries' occur in the second line carries any significant implications for the naming of countries within the quatrains. Also note that every one of the anagrams for touun/town is lacking a marker which may well imply my search for letter w as uu is wrong.

Another key word I have checked is Europe/s/an/ans and they confirm the results in the table. There are 36 verses where these words occur either in the text or as anagrams. There are 29 that occur as anagrams and of these 27 involve a capital or long-ess marker. The same pattern holds true for the anagrams of related words such as regions and nations. There are 7 true anagrams of 'places' of which four contain markers.

As interesting as the possibility of these sub jects being marked for special attention may be. there are other signs that we need to examine. We need to see if the content of the verses containing the anagrams discuss the same topics as appear in the Epistle namely war, religion, sects, three kings or allies, the barren lady, dissent, reformation, treatment of women and children, bloody massacres and other correlated themes. The analysis also needs to show that these threads run through all the examples of a single reference word in a consistent manner and to find whether other patterns worthy of examination appear within these groups. These will be the objectives of the next two sections.

The real meaning of Nostradamus' Epistle to Henry.

I am very satisfied with the progress of this most recent research for I have achieved what no one before has ever done; I have understood the significance of the Epistle to Henry. Why is this achievement so important? Because it answers many of the biggest puzzles surrounding Nostradamus' Prophecies.

No-one can claim to have decoded Nostradamus' work if they have no means to make intelligible the difficulties raised by the Epistle to Henry. Any claim to have such a solution should surely be hidden in Nostradamus own words and if there is a meaningful code there must be an accessible set of data enabling its decipherment. Any source of data should be clearly pointed to by Nostradamus or alternatively be a visible part of his work found in or closely attached to the Prophecies.

It is these foregoing aspects that give me the confidence to say this paper makes great advances in understanding the real meaning of Nostradamus' Prophecies. However as there is so much that is unveiled by my recent research it will take many months to show its full import and to display the elegance and strength of Nostradamus' techniques.

I begin by affirming that the patterns mentioned in the first part of this series of analyses are found in many other key-words. Capitals and the long-ess are an important means by which Nostradamus identifies the words that unify quatrains with identical themes. The key-words occur either in the text or as an anagram and the means of reducing the possibility of misplacement and error always lies in the context in which each is found.

Although we can make hasty, self-serving judgements of the import of a word it is only through the patterns that emerge from Nostradamus' instructions that we can build a holistic and consistent story.

Nostradamus' patterns involve a range of attributes of which capitals together with the long-ess are the most important. So where an anagram is missing this aspect it is either a product of chance or of lesser importance. This may be varied where all occurrences of a proper name miss this aspect but it is enhanced where all occurrences employ a marker of some kind.

Other aspects involve the consistent placement in the same line of every quatrain where it is found and the grouping of the quatrains particularly at the beginning, middle or end of the prophecies. Of course each pattern may be chance alone so their importance is secondary to context.

The context is based on the repetitive themes of Henry's Epistle which is not intended to be a prophecy in itself but a code-book where the ciphers can be found. And it is logical that it be here in the Epistle for it accompanies the Prophecies throughout time. And it is Nostradamus' instructions that form our starting and end points.

The cleverness of Nostradamus' writing is illustrated by a vast number of instances amongst which lie ones relating to his techniques. It is Nostradamus who tells us the guides I have stated above are meant to be used in the manner I have shown.

You will find many places in the Epistle of 1558 and the Preface of 1555 where Nostradamus emphasizes we are to notice objects that have names (stars, cities, towns, people and dates) and as such they are capitalised.

The following quotes are but two of many where he makes it clear these aspects provide the key to the code. In the latter part of the first there is also a hint we are to use patterns of similarity to aid the process while in the latter part of the second quote there is a quote in Latin implying these markers (capitals etc) are part of what we see.

So I have dedicated my nocturnal and prophetic calculations, which are composed  out of a natural instinct, accompanied by a poetic furore rather than in accord with the strict rules of poetry. And in the most part they have been composed and are in accord with astronomical calculations corresponding to the years, months and weeks of the regions, countries and most of the towns and cities of all Europe, including Africa and part of Asia. By changing of [these] regions [to ones] which approach the greater part of all these climates, and which consist of a natural [similar] grouwe can answer some one who needs to blow his own [trumpet/nose];  the algorithm will be as easy as the understanding of its meaning is difficult. Nostradamus Epistle 1558

But when judgment comes to perfection with the celestial judgment that you wish to show: you will gain knowledge of future causes. Rejecting distant fantasies from the imaginations that will happen limits  this feature [of future-seeing] to the premises suited to supernatural divine inspiration. And  giving celestial figures, places, and the time the property held by a hidden virtue  lies in this power and divine understanding.  In the presence of these the three times comprise eternity because the revolution that causes them is the past,  present and future: quia omnia funt nuda and aperta, etc. (Latin: because all are naked and exposed) Nostradamus Preface 1555

One of the other claims by Nostradamus is that there is a connection between the content of the Epistle and the quatrains and because it would be  overwhelming to establish the extent of this relationship I will only present a few to show the veracity of Nostradamus ' claim and the implications for my further presentations.

All these figures represent the just adaptation of the divine letters to heavenly visible things, namely, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and the others conjoined, as can be seen at more length in some quadrins (quatrains). I would have calculated more profoundly and integrated them even further, most Serene King, Nostradamus Epistle 1558

Below I present my first example using Quatrain 8 in Centuries 1 in two sections of a single table. The first shows the quatrain in English in the left column while the right holds the relevant passage from the Epistle of 1558.

The most prominent theme that unites them is the reference to changing/new laws but there are others involving the nature of upheaval due to a single person.

 The second section shows the original French wording as given by Erika Cheetham (Perigree Press,1989) and in the right column I show the anagrams that comply with the rules I set out above. They are shown in their English form/s followed by their actual appearance in the text.

C1 Q08 - English   Epistle
How often are you captured, O city of the sun
Changing laws that are barbaric and vain
Bad times approach you. More are dependent.
Great Hadrie will revive your veins.
H9a.1 The youngest of them will sustain and augment the Christian monarchy, elevate sects and suddenly cast them down, Arabs retreat, kingdoms unite and new laws are promulgated
C1 Q08 - French Markers (Anagram)
Combien de fois prinſe cite ſolaire
Seras changeant les loys barbares et vaines
Ton mal s'approche. Plus ſera tributaire

La grand Hadrie recourira tes veines
Societal (citeSola)
Monasterial (ireTonmalsa)
Sepulchres (chePlusSer)
Evangelistaries/Lineages/Evangelises (ratesveinesLag)

Note that the fourth line refers to reviving veins and the context of this reference validates the anagram for lineages while four of the other words monasterial, sepulchres, evangelistaries and evangelises fit to the themes found in both the Epistle and the second line of text.

It is by this means that we can see the connection to the message of the Epistle and at the same there is evidence that even more detail of relevance is to be found.

These rules are not vastly different to the ones I have used for years but now they have the authority of Nostradamus' instructions which via the marker system confine the choice even more than my own.

The Religious Divide.

The process I am using shows me that there is a remarkable story in the Prophecies and it is much the same story that is glanced upon in the Epistle to Henry and the Preface to Caesar. It is however very specific in its details.

Nostradamus' tale involves the horrendous religious wars that affected his past and his present and which would manifest itself in a series of great wars in our century.

There is of course a context involving Islam, Christianity and pagans but the feature that emerges strongly from the anagrams chosen by Nostradamus is the ideological division in Christian religions.

The Roman Catholic Church is the major target for all these groups but this threat is from three other Christian sects.

The prominent sects are ones derived from the splits around the mortal nature of Christ and it is this divide that produced the past present and future wars that Nostradamus includes in his Prophecies. Nostradamus is very consistent in this and in his description of his method he tells us he uses the past to illustrate the future on the basis that everything is cyclical and events follow the order of the chain.

One of the reasons that I can be confident of the above is the very unusual nature of complex anagrams that reference Christian sects. The most prominent references are to Arianism, Pentecostalism, Nestorianism and Catharism and mostly there are no references to other groups inside or outside Christianity.

I have chosen to use the verse below to illustrate my points even though there are countless others and I did so because it contains words that illustrate in a powerful manner Nostradamus reliance on highly relevant context. The verse I use is Centuries 1, Quatrain 54. This verse is at the heart of my papers on the great mutations of this century since it provides key astronomic clues and its relevance is discussed in detail in the fore-mentioned link.

This quatrain is easily linked to a small passage in the Epistle (see below) because it shares the idea of astronomic revolutions that follow the order of the chain.

C1 Q54 - English   Epistle
Two revolutions caused by the evil scythe
making a change of reign and centuries.
The mobile sign thus moves into its house:
Equal in favour to both sides.
H7b.1 I have calculated the present prophecies according to the order of the chain which contains its revolution. This is done all by astronomical doctrine and my natural instinct.
C1 Q54 - French Markers (Anagram)
Deux reuolts faicts du maling falcigere
De regne et ſiecles faict permutation
Le mobil ſigne a ſon endroict ſi ingere

Aux deux egaux et d'inclination
Degree (gereDe), dualism (sdumali)
Degeneration (ationDeregen)
Agennos.Doctrines (gneaSon.endroictS) Albigensis (bilSigneaS)
Directions/Considerations (aSonendroictSi)

Besides the astronomical relevance there is another meaning to the word revolution since it can be a time of rebellion. It is this wording which unites anagrams found in the verse with the religious war theme implied in all of Nostradamus' works.

In the accompanying anagram list there are two words that are adjacent that tell us we are dealing with the theme of Christ's mortality.

In the third line we have Agennos doctrines and Agennos means without a father. The term Agennos is one of the actual Greek words that dominated discussion at the Nicaean Council of 325 CE. The extent of its relevance to Nostradamus is shown in detail in my paper called Nicea_Agennos.

There are two words in this list with which most people will have no familiarity but they are critical to the meaning. These two words are Albigensis and dualism and both of these occur as anagrams only in this verse and both relate to the religion of the Cathars a dualistic Gnostic sect based on principles similar to those found in Arianism. And Arianism was made a crime called heresy by the Nicaean Council.

The Cathars were driven to extinction via the first crusade that was ever conducted against a Christian sect and the first that was under- taken in the homeland of the Crusaders. This action against the Cathars was called the Albigensian Crusade.

The unique features of this war including the terror with which it was prosecuted are what Nostradamus links to wars which are still to come. And we can see this is the cyclical claim made by Nostradamus in the Epistle where he says I have calculated the present prophecies according to the order of the chain which contains its revolution.

So I believe that there is great connectivity between these ideas and a consistency with Nostradamus' themes all of which implies these words are deliberately placed and not accidental. Accordingly they form a platform that is more detailed and upon which we can build further branches in these wars of religious division.

Gateways to Families involved in Religious Wars.

As I progress with this presentation I am showing the multi-layered meaning in Nostradamus' Prophecies while at the same time illustrating how the Epistle acts as a multi-layered code book for finding the start of the stories of meaning to Nostradamus. Not all of these keys lay in the names and topics for many lie in the structure of the Epistle.

Even though much of the material of the Epistle seems incoherent and irrelevant to the known history of the world there is a meaningful value system that it reveals. Nostradamus makes much of family and lineage in both the tables of Biblical figures and his narrative about the great Dame who passes from being barren to become the matriarch of a dynasty involved in wars and empire building all of which brings out varying responses from the populace.

This dynasty is involved with the conflicts between pagan, Christian and Eastern religions and their involvement culminates in the creation of a world ready for and fostering the rise of an Antichrist.

This idea of lineage can be found throughout the hidden content of Nostradamus' Prophecies and it takes the form of stories of the prominent families involved in religious wars of the past and following the part they play in the wars of the centuries beyond that of Nostradamus' birth in 1503 CE.

Earlier I used some of Nostradamus' words in the Epistle to Henry to establish that his references to the order of the chain refer to repeated cycles linking past, present and future. I also reported that this intertwined time basis is a constant feature found in his quatrains. But there is another sense of these words that ties in to the topic of this article in which the linkage between past, present and future is an allusion to the generations of several families.

 It is easy for me to demonstrate that there are gateways between the Epistle and the Prophecies with none being more visible that that provided by Nostradamus when he says I have calculated the present prophecies according to the order of the chain which contains its revolution. (H7b.1). This ties in extraordinarily well with the wording of Centuries 3 Quatrain 79 which says The fatal everlasting order through the chain will come to turn through consistent order.

C3 Q79 - English   Epistle
The fatal everlasting order through the chain
Will come to turn through rational order:
I have calculated the present prophecies according to the order of the chain which contains its revolution. All this is done by astronomical doctrine and my natural instinct. (HEE21b)
C3 Q79 - French Markers (Anagram)
L'ordre fatal ſempiternel par chaiſne
Viendra tourner par ordre conSequent
Males.after.Lord (Lord.refat.alSem), a.Simple.fate (efat.a.lSempi),
Older.Chains (

Although the anagrams and text in this verse confirm the themes are intertwined events crossing several wars it would be a distraction to introduce all its threads so I have concentrated only on the content of the first line.

In the right column I have shown the anagrams of the first line based around the capitalised letters and the sequences from where they come.

Alone they seem to have little merit.  However when looked at in alliance with Two revolutions caused by the evil scythe making a change of reign and centuries from verse C1 Q54 which is the previous verse in this paper it can be seen that this cluster validate the remarks with which I opened this article.

Besides the astronomical relevance there is another meaning to the word revolution since it can be a time of rebellion. It is this wording which unites anagrams found in the verse with the religious war theme implied in all of Nostradamus' works.

The keys that underpin the above verse are determined in the same manner as in each of the foregoing and this is shown in the next two tables. These verses occur one after the other. In each of these I restrict my analysis to the first line even though there are other valuable links in the others. 

The next verse illustrates the same connectivity but it is also the verse before C3 Q79 given above which links the order of the chain to passage H7b in the Epistle. By this means we see that connections exist between separate clusters of the Prophecies and the Epistle.

This verse was mentioned earlier as having links to the Epistle and here it can be seen that the first line holds markers suggestive of an ancient lineage from Christ based on the male line. The verse preceding this C3 Q78 L1 has a similar allusion to this theme in its first line.

C3 Q78 -French Markers (Anagram)
Le chef d'Eſcoſſe auec six d'Alemaigne
Magdelaine (dAlemaigme), Male.Lineage (Alem. aigneLe). ſſ codes cause IX (d'Eſcoſſe auec s)

It implies a male lineage code based on Nostradamus' use of ſſ lettering and offers potential names of which one is Magdelaine.

This name has a unity with the reference to the Lord found in the equivalent place in C3 79 while the reference to male lineage in Quatrain 78 is also consistent with the idea of lineage of Jesus.

In each contributing part there is allusion to a single story, the fate of Jesus' lineage.

But these are skeletons of truth needing more flesh to be put upon them and this I will do as I present more verses.

And there is a tale to tell that will give meaning to this account of war in which the ancestral chain is broken at the Phocen Port (Marseille) only to be taken uin a modern war in the Atlantic at a time when European people suffer from the use of quantum-physics based antiparticle weapons. These terms are all part of the hidden message of these verses. These tales are developed throughout my other papers and can be found at my website.

I believe the above evidence is enough to conclude that the Epistle's allusion to the order of the chain ties it very tightly to the Prophecies and that the rest of the Epistle provides a similar gateway for finding key verses. So, via the use of unique phrasing the Epistle provides the key words leading to verses that flesh out its own deliberately jumbled story. 

The phrases are the trunk from which come many branches and only when the twigs, leaves, flowers and seeds are present do we see the full beauty of the tree. That these branches exist can be shown by following the trail of one of those indicated above. There are eight occurrences of anagrams for lineage and of these only the five that include a capital letter show high relevance. The sequences in which they are found are shown below.

C3 Q78 L.1 (above) Magdelaine (dAlemaigme) Male.Lineage (Alem. aigneLe))
C3 Q90 L.1 De-Charny Lineage (ed.Hyrcan. naieLeg
C9 Q19.L.3 Marauding (granduMain) Englander (neLegrand) Duman Lineage (anduM.aineLeg
C10 Q08 L.2  Lineages (Senegali
) galilean-Seed (De_Se- negalia_l)
C10 Q48 L.1 DuPont.Lineage.Trouble.Satan.Pass (u Pont_d e_Laigne Trouble s_paS Sant_a)

The text of Quatrain C3 Q78 in this list and displayed in full earlier is closely tied into the story of Geoffroi De Charny, the person whose surname is mentioned in C3 Q90 (see following link for De Charny).

This thread illustrates that the key-list in the Epistle can be expanded thus providing us with a tree to understand each Prophecies proper place and purpose.

For instance, given that Magdelaine, De Charny and Dupont are prominent family related names found amongst different religious affiliations and taking into account there is much more given in other lines of the above verses I feel there is enough to show the word 'lineage' found by using the gateways and messages in the Epistle is a new key-word to be added to those found directly in the Epistle.

The Lineage of Magdalene

Although there are many more gateways within the Epistle to Henry it is essential that I divert from their presentation. I will return to this task later and show the paths to such things as the meaning of the three brothers and the reason Nostradamus uses such an emotive word as Satan in his work. But first I need to show that these paths from the Epistle do provide consistent tales.

To do this I will concentrate on all the anagrams for Magdelaine/Magdalene and the names that are found in association with them. I will present all the anagrams for Rosemary, Beaufort and Hautpuls and in so doing show how tightly they are clustered and how they provide tales with both internal consistency and finite detail of specific events.

I won't at this time present the text of the verses where these anagrams are found. However I present them after looking at their hidden content and it is then possible to see how all the data comes together.

I begin with the name Magdalene which occurs only once. (Note that each of the following presentations are made ufrom anagrams found in the text of the line):

  • Magdalene CVI. Q75 A-Rosemary-Legend named-Years Portrays Magdalene Englander Espousal Recalls-a-Purpose Hautpuls Baronet Ancestors.

All we have is a collection of words based on key anagrams where sequences are shown by the use of hyphens. I have organised their order so that there is some sense of flow. Of course I could be wrong in choosing the order however as a group they do seem to have a consistency with the theme of a dynastic lineage based on planned marriages. To find such a connection would only be of passing interest if it depended only on one verse.

The anagram for Magdelaines is interesting because its associated words seem to offer a rationale to the change in spelling of the name.

  • Magdelaines CV. Q49  Uncle-Pleased Semipagan Maidens name-latinised  Pleasure-Seen Africa Years Sons-Quailed-Cruellest-Rapes Persecute 

The Magdelaines anagram is the only one to be found in The Prophecies and its tale needs to be validated and expanded by further references. It is with this in mind that I move to a name raised in the Magdalene entry for which there are two other verses with that anagram as key, namely the family Hautpuls.

  • C3 Q2 Hautpuls-Son-be(a)  Beaufort-Argyle. Englander Compares Rapes (to) A-Corpse (which a) Paradisal-Rogue Raised
  • C5 Q42 Hautpuls-Son Rosemary Beaufort-Army Ensue (then) France-Fear Carefree Royal (and) Offer Argyle (a) Deformable-Agent (which) Lamberton-feared

The first part of this pair of verses holds the tone of an illegitimate male child raised by a person who is not his father. This Englander is as much a rogue as the father and fits to the title of the marauding Englander seen in CIX.Q10 about a lineage trail (see previous article). The text of the latter verse actually refers to a bastard son. The Argyle-Beauforts raise the child but bestow their own name on the child. The second of the current verses under discussion suggests the son of the Hautpuls leads an army against the French who, recognising his lineage, seek to transform its threat.

 There is one other verse with an anagram of the name Beaufort and it tells us more about this nobleman's activities.

  • C2 Q58 Beaufort Seafront Desperations Foretaste Treason beaufort-deport any-alien Proudest-Ideals Reports Idolaters (to) Loyalest Patrons

The name Rosemary is only found as anagrams in C5 Q42 and C6 Q75 both of which verses are already given above. This leaves three Magdelaine occurrences of which one was briefly raised in the previous article. The parts of these three verses most relevant to the foregoing themes are laid out below.

  • CIII.Q78 Magdelaine Males.Lineage Remodernise Presagient Treasures (to) Present(ing)-Present Europeans Codes.
  • CIV Q94 (via) Cousins-Navies Aliens-Pyres-Seen. Rogue Reasons Grim Angels-Named Magdelaine; (a) nonthematic-Adage-seen (by) Seaborne Baron 
  • C10 Q74 Measure Sombre Times Jesux tomb-Appear Magdelaine. Loosening-Mens Guard. Stories Sequel Terrorists enter tomb.
This last group takes us into the future and sets the scene for many of the themes raised in the Epistle. And the text of these eight verses all run vertically and horizontally parallel to the stories I have unfolded above.

Below are the verses on which the above is based. It shows the translated and original text. The anagrams that can be found in the line are shown in the section titled Markers (Anagram).

C3 Q02 - English   Epistle
After combat and naval battle
The great Neptune in his highest belfry: 
Red adversary will become pale with fear, 
Putting the great Ocean in dread.
This King will commit incredible crimes against the Church. Human blood will flow in the public streets and temples, like water after an impetuous rain, coloring the nearby rivers red with blood. The ocean itself will be reddened by another naval battle [HEE25]
C3 Q02 - French Markers (Anagram)
Apres combat et bataille naualle 
Le grand Neptune a ſon plus haut befroy 

Rouge auerſaire de peur viadra paſle 
Mettant le grand Ocean en effroy
Compares (Apres_com)  a corpse (A pres_co)

paradisal Rogue (iadra_paſl e_Roug)
Anne offer My latent Code (d_Oce an_en effro y_M ettant_l)

The above verse contains names that repeat themselves in the lineage cipher series. It also alludes to the relevance of a corpse and the strong ties this series has to his coding methods

C2 Q58 - English   Epistle
With neither foot nor hand because of sharp, strong tooth
Through crowd to fort of port & the elder
Near the portal treacherous proceeds
Moon shining, little great one led off

Secondary links through order of the chain and the port of Marseille in C3 Q79

C2 Q58 - French Markers (Anagram)
Sans pied ne main dend aygue et forte
Par globe au fort de port et laine nay 
Pres du portail deſloyal tranſporte 

Silene luit petit grand emmene
Seafront (forte San) desperations (orte San) foretaste treason
Beaufort deport (be_au_fort de_port) any alien 
proudest-ideals loyal Patrons (res_du_port  ail_deſ   loyal   tranſpor )  reports idolaters 

C2 Q58 links one of the family names to naval action, a particular battle and the attitudinal significance of a family member.

C5 Q42 - English   Epistle
Mars raised to his highest belfry 
Will cause the Savoyards to withdraw from France: 
The Lombard people will cause very great terror 
To those of the Eagle included under the Balance.
The people who deliver the world from its benign and voluntary servitude are those presenting themselves to the protection of Mars and Jupiter. By robbing all of their honors and dignities they form a free city, constituted and sitting in another smaller Mesopotamia [HEE14]
C5 Q42 - French Markers (Anagram)
Mars eſleue en ſon plus haut befroy

Fera retraire les Allobrox de France

La gent Lombarde fera si grand effroy

A ceux de l'aigle comprins ſouz la balance

Cabalan Soulz (ſouz_l a_balanc )  Galilee (e_l'aigle) exclude (ceux_de_l')

C5 Q42 strengthens the probability that the family name center on Hautpul, Rosemary and Beaufort. These names have strong association with prominent families with whom Nostradamus would have had contact, Hautpul was the family name of the lords of Chateau les Rennes which was within walking distance of Alet Les Bains. This latter town was where Nostradamus' predecessors and cousins were based and where he lived in the 1520s.

C3 Q78 - English   Epistle
The Scottish chief with six Germans
Captive of the Eastern seamen:
They will pass Gibraltar and Spain,
Present in Persia for the fearful new King.

And the [unfaithful] one, who, to his great confusion and later repentance, will want to ruin her, will have three regions where the difference in distance is extreme, namely, Romany, Germany and Spain in which will form diverse sects [set up] by armed force [causing] the 50th to the 52nd parallel to be abandoned.  {HEE9]

C3 Q78 - French Markers (Anagram)
Le chef d'Eſcoſſe auec six d'Alemaigne

The above verse expands on the activities of the family line at a time when the daughter of the Barren Lady is married into  the British Royal family.

C6 Q75 - English   Epistle
The great Pilot will be commissioned by the King, 
To leave the fleet to fill a higher post:
Seven years after he will be in rebellion
Venice will come to fear the Barbarian army.
And while this renewed Triumvirate will last for seven years, the renown of such a sect will extend throughout the universe. It will be sustained because of the sacrifice of the holy and immaculate host at a time when the lords of Aquilon are two in number.....Therein all the East trembles in fear of the brothers, not brothers of the North [HEE8]
C6 Q75 - French Markers (Anagram)
Le grand pilot par Roy ſera mande

Laiſſer la claſſe pour plus haut lieu attaindre 

Sept ans apres ſera contrebande

Rosemary  a Legend (Roy_ſera_m a nde_Le_g) named Years (y_ſera mande) Portrays (t _pa_Roy_ſ) Magdalene (a_mande_Le_g) Englander (nde_Le_ grand)

baronet (ontreba) ancestors  (es_ſera_cont) aptness (Sept_ans )
Bernardi arab  increase (eniſe_cra indre_Ba arba) Invaders envied (e_viend d_ra Veniſ)

In C6 Q75 the repetition of the family names serves as a tie. This provides greater detail that will identify the period when all these events take place.

C4 Q94 - English   Epistle
Two great brothers will be chased out of Spain, 
The elder conquered under the Pyrenees mountains:
The sea to redden, Rhône, bloody Leman blood of Gemany   
Narbonne, Béziers contaminated by Agde.
The second [brother] is more reverent and advances if accompanied by the Latins. This will become the second way (the Great St. Bernard Pass ) a furious and trembling path to Mount Louis descending [then] to mount the Pyrenees , which will not, however, be translated to the ancient monarchy. There will be a third event in which human blood inundates and for a long time Lent will not include March. [HEE8]
C4 Q94 - French Markers (Anagram)
Deux grans freres ſeront chaſſez d'Eſpaigne

InC4 Q94 the code method using eSS and Zeds is explained. In this part of the series the Magdelaine is seen as the focal point of the family.

C10 Q74 - English   Epistle
The year of the great seventh number accomplished, 
It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter 
Not far from the great millennial age, 
When the buried will go out from their tombs.
 This will be near the seventh millenary, when the sanctuary of Jesus Christ will no longer be trodden down by the infidels who come from "Aquilon" [the North]. The world will be approaching a great conflagration. [HEE10]
C10 Q74- French Markers (Anagram)

In the last of this series the text gives the epoch in which these events take place and ties it into understanding (episteme) the significance of the Christ tomb stories.

On the basis of the evidence I have uncovered I believe Nostradamus did see into the future and he faithfully recorded it but the nature of truth is shaped by both the observation and the observer. It is the environment related by Nostradamus that gives away the clue that he did see through time but the meaning of what he saw depends on the mechanism by which it was acquired.

I do not say, my son, that the knowledge of this matter cannot impress itself upon your feeble brain, nor do I say that very distant future causes are not  knowable by a reasoning creature. If they are simply the creation of a goodly creature's  intellectual soul out of current events, then they are not too greatly hidden from him nor, on the other hand can they be said to be revealed at all.
But the perfect causes cannot be acquired without divine inspiration since all prophetic inspiration receives its prime motivating force from God the Creator, then from happiness and nature. Wherefore causes that are indifferent are produced indifferently the presage only partly comes true where it has been predicted.  Because where human understanding is created intellectually it cannot see hidden things except by the voice coming from limbo via the thin flame, showing in what direction part of the future causes will be inclined. 
Nostradamus Letter to Cesar 1555
