A Few Interesting Facts About The Life And Prophecies Of Nostradamus

The real name of the person we know as Nostradamus is Michel de Nostredame. He was a seer and apothecary that also published numerous prophecies that have become very well known in every part of the world. In fact, the book that he wrote which was called Les Propheties first appeared in the year 1555. Since that time, this book has been published over and over again.

Nostradamus has a huge following and the reason for this is that some of his prophecies have actually been fulfilled. However, academicians beg to differ and say that the prophecies of Nostradamus have actually been wrongly interpreted and that these prophecies are not tenuous and are not worth any merit. What is worse, they argue, is that the sources listed by him do not offer any real evidence that certain events will or have in fact taken place.

That being said, there is still a mass of people that believe in the prophecies of Nostradamus who was born on fourteenth or twenty first of December in the year 1503. He was born in the southern parts of France and more particularly in Saint Remy de Provence. He was in fact, one among nine children that were born to a father who was a grain dealer as well as notary.

At fifteen, he got admission to the University of Avignon and there he studied for his Bachelors degree. However, after a year he left the university which had to shut down on account of a plague. Still, the young Nostradamus kept busy by studying herbal remedies. Later, he became an apothecary and got admission to the University of Montpellier where he wished to study to get a doctorate in the medical field.

He was however expelled, but he still remained committed to his studies and became well known for making the rose pill that would (some thought) provide relief from the plague.

He married in the year 1531 and became father of two children. Soon, however, in 1534, his wife and children passed away on account of the plague. He became an assistant to Louis Serre who was a well known physician who was trying to find solutions to the plague problem in Marseille. He then (in 1547) settled down in a place called Salon de Province in a house that still remains today and here he got married to a wealthy widow and had six children with her.

But, a visit to Italy would change things for him, as he soon started becoming involved in the occult. He authored an almanac in the year 1550 and this proved to be a major success which made him want to write more. Unfortunately, in 1566, troubled by gout, he became even more ill and soon, on the first of July, breathed his last.

His famous book, The Prophecies was a collection of some very important long term prophecies. Some of the more famous prophecies of Nostradamus include the French Revolution, exile of Napoleon and the rise of Adolf Hitler as well as two world wars and the nuclear decimation of Hiroshima as well as Nagasaki.
