Did Nostradamus Really Predict World War II?

The Mayan calendar has led to mass speculation that the World is on the brink of destruction and now people are turning to the quatrains of Nostradamus to see if they can find clues. It is true that there are many references to the possibility of a Third World War and has proposed its own version of interpretation in our 2012 Doomsday: World War III series, but is Nostradamus really right or is decoding his quatrains open for interpretation by anybody.

So, in looking for clues about a possible World War II, let´s take a look at the French Seers predictions of World War II and discuss whether there is any true grounding in the quatrains or whether it is merely the imagination, words skills and knowledge of history the scholars really play with.

It has been said by scholars that the French Seer accurately predicted World War I and World War II. has previously documented its findings about World War I and came to the conclusion that Nostradamus would surely have made more references to the Great War if that is indeed something he was predicting, particularly given the amount of potential references to World War III. The same principle would surely also be applied for World War II, yet scholar´s only bring two to the table.

Century 4 Quatrain 68

The two greatest ones of Asia and of Africa,

From the Rhine and Lower Danube they will be said to have come,

Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian side.

The first line of the above quatrain speaks of great countries from Asia and Africa. The first must refer to Japan who were allies of Hitler´s Nazi Germany, but although much of the war was fought on African soil between the British and American forces against the Wehrmacht, there were no African countries directly in World War II.

Again in the second line, the Rhine and the Lower Danube is only partially correct. The Rhine is a reference to Germany though the lower Danube runs through Hungary and the former Yugoslavia. Though Hungary was a member of the axis power and sided with Hitler, Yugoslavia was invaded and divided between Germany, Italy and Hungary so again is not entirely accurate.

Malta was the centerpiece for British naval forces and the “Ligurian side” is on the west coast of Italy, so whereas the quatrain is accurate with the location they were again on opposing sides and don´t really ring true as an accurate prophecy.

Century 2 Quatrain 24

Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers:

Greater part of the army will be against Hister


The greater one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage


When the Germany child will observe nothing.

Some scholars classify that “Beasts ferocious with hunger” is a reference to the German army, (others say he means the allied army) “will swim across rivers.” Note Nostradamus doesn´t mention which rivers so could be anywhere. However, in the next line he does mention “the greater part of the army will be against Hister.”

As identified in the article Antichrist: Part IV, the word “Hister” is widely believed to be a play on Hitler´s name. However, here again we see scholars offering different theories, as the word Hister is the ancient Latin word for the Danube – which purports to the opening sentence. Thus again we possibly have reference to Yugoslavia and Hungary above. Yet World War II was mostly fought in France, around the Rhone, Seine, and Rhine.

When people are proposing their theories about the Nostradamus predicting World War II, they often pair it with the rise of Hitler, which, unlike the two proposals above is a much more airtight theory.

 Century 3 Quatrain 35

From the depths of the West of Europe,

A young child will be born of poor people,

He who by his tongue will seduce a great troop;

His fame will increase towards the realm of the East.

Hitler was born to Austrian peasants by hoodwinked an entire nation to believing he was the person to lead them glory and restore the pride of Germany. Hitler was also well known in Russia and Japan.

An interesting point to make is that during the Second World War, Nostradamus quatrains were dropped over Europe predicting the defeat of France. They were fake, but were used for propaganda, because predictions of a prophet are what people believed in. Or in other words, it is what the elite want you to believe. Are we seeing the same principles today with the Mayan Calendar doomsday theories and the prophecies of Nostradamus predicting World War III?
