Did Nostradamus predict the French Revolution?  | Scary Predictions | Myth Stories


Nostradamus predicted close to 1000 futures
in his 1555 book, The Prophecies. Many consider him a prophet. Some reckon he’s a buffoon. One thing’s for sure: his work is timeless. Today we’ll show you another prediction
from Michel De Nostredame that some suspect foretold a turning point in European history. This, like his other forecasts, have led to
many wondering whether or not Nostradamus was onto something. His prophecies, communicated as short poems
called quatrains, are thought by some to be divinations of what is to come. But whether he’s an oracle or not, we’ll
leave that up to you. NOSTRADAMUS:
THE FRENCH REVOLUTION The following quatrain is believed to foretell
a time of great change in France, that in turn sparked a period of worldwide transformation. It reads: “Songs, chants, and refrains of the slavish
mob,” “Whilst the Princes and King are captive
in prison,” “Shall be received in the future as oracles
divine” “By headless idiots deprived of judgment.” France. 1789. The air is strong with revolt. The French commonfolk are sick and tired of
working for a pittance while those in power get fat and line their pockets. Change, Mythstorians, is coming. Back then the French populace was divided
into three groups. These were the First Estate, church elders;
the second estate, the nobility, and the Third Estate, the common folk. They were the majority and paid most of the
taxes, while the rich got the best jobs. But, change is afoot. The nation is struggling. The economy is poor and the year’s harvest
is for nowt. France’s King Louis XVI (16th) wants higher
taxation, but is met with demands for change. July 14, 1789. Paris, France. A mob of violent revolutionaries conquer the
Bastille, a prison and Royal power symbol. The mob backs representatives from the Third
Estate known as the National Assembly. The group negotiates more rights for the common
folk. The assembly soon starts running the country. Let’s look once again at Nostradmus’ forecast. “Songs, chants, and refrains of the slavish
mob,” This may refer to the revolution itself and the common folk who demanded change. “Whilst the Princes and King are captive
in prison,” “Shall be received in the future as oracles
divine” “By headless idiots deprived of judgment.” All of these next three lines, may refer to
what happened afterward. Glorified terror had taken hold of the country. In 1793 King Louis XVI, along with his wife,
Marie Antoinette and the royal family are imprisoned. Later that year, both the King and Queen lose
their heads to the guillotine. During that same year, Maximilien Robespierre
was made the head of the Committee of Public safety. Vague legislation called the Law of Suspects
is passed. It allows for the imprisonment and extermination
of threats to the Revolutionary Government. Robespierre used this law to annihilate thousands. He wholeheartedly believed that he was just
in his actions, as evidenced by this 1794 quote. “If the basis of popular government in peacetime
is virtue, the basis of popular government during a revolution is both virtue and terror;
virtue, without which terror is baneful; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing more than speedy, severe
and inflexible justice.” This lasted until 1799 when a statesman by
the name of Napoleon Bonaparte took power. And his reign over France is another event
Nostradamus is also said to have predicted. So why not join us in the next mythical video?
