Michel de Nôtre-Dame, better known as Nostradamus, was not a simple astrologer, he did not read tarot cards or play to predict good or evil and in fact, he was a man of science.
However, in life he was considered a great astrological consultant and since his first publications, as one of the most important prophets in history, but what is true in the prophecies of Nostradamus?
Simple charlatan or visionary genius?
Skeptics and a broad sector of the scientific community simply point out that the prophecies of Nostradamus, many of which seem to coincide with several future events and alien to the existence of their author, are just just that: simple coincidences or tendentious interpretations and little reliable.
But on the other hand, there are also those who firmly believe in this Renaissance prophet, in his prophetic verses and in his supposed ability to see some of the most important events in the future of humanity.
Today, more than 500 years after the birth of this man, I want to ask you which side are you on? Do you really know who Nostradamus was? What do you know about his prophecies? How much falsehood or how much of amazing reality do you think is in his works?
I invite you in Scientific Eye, to observe some interesting facts about the figure of this man and to know some of his most peculiar prophecies to determine how true the prophecies of Nostradamus are.
Who was Nostradamus?
Nostradamus (Michel de Nôtre-Dame) was born on December 14, 1503 in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. During his youth he studied medicine at the University of Avignon in France and showed a deep interest in mathematics and astronomy. After becoming a doctor, he treated thousands of plague victims in various regions of France and Italy.
On the other hand, his interest in chemical and physical sciences, as well as astrology and psychic issues, aroused in him a taste for certain occult practices and the supposed possibility of predicting the future.
In addition, while he was on a trip working as a doctor he frequented meetings with other doctors, alchemists and practitioners of the cabal, which also influenced that taste for the practice of prediction.
As a result, throughout his life he made numerous predictions published in books of verses that soon became as popular as controversial and even dangerous for Nostradamus himself.
To prevent possible persecutions by the Inquisition, something that already seemed inevitable, he wrote his prophetic verses in a very complex style, using different ancient languages, performing intricate puns and everything that could hinder the understanding of the inquisitors, which obviously made his predictions become extremely complex and gave rise to numerous interpretations.
With the passage of time, the inevitable happened and everywhere it was said that what Nostradamus published were data that the devil himself provided. In his last years of life, Nostradamus lived persecuted, lost his contacts with the aristocracy, popularity and prestige he had. He became ill and on July 2, 1566, at the age of 62, Michel Nostradamus ceased to exist.
But he left a large number of prophecies, several of which today many belief are a true record of what would happen in the future.

Birth and apogee of Napoleon
This is one of the most controversial prophecies for something very clear and at the same time strange, Nostradamus, at the beginning of the French Renaissance refers to a man who occupies freedom and is called Hister.
While the followers of Nostradamus and the most tendentious argue that it is clearly Adolf Hitler, many researchers and historians have analyzed the situation meticulously by determining that it is simply the Danube River as it was formerly called. Studying the word according to the laws of the anagram there are also those who argue that this word refers to hysteria.
However, what many find interesting is that in Sofia, Bulgaria, since February 21, 1941, the news that the Nazi bridge over the Danube was ready was spreading and only a month later, the troops Hitler’s invaded Italy.
