Whether you believe in the power of prophecy or not, one thing is for sure - Nostradamus' life and predictions are shrouded in mystery and intrigue, and the secrets he left behind continue to captivate and inspire people to this day.

I’m sure you are as excited as me to know more about him. Let me tell you some amazing facts about him.

Nostradamus was a French astrologer, physician, and seer who lived during the 16th century. He is best known for his book "Les Propheties," a collection of 942 quatrains in which he purportedly predicted future events.

Nostradamus' predictions were highly cryptic, often written in a mixture of French, Italian, Latin, and Provençal, making them difficult to interpret. However, his followers claimed that he accurately predicted major historical events, including the French Revolution, the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, and the two World Wars.

While many people still believe in the accuracy of Nostradamus' predictions, others view them as mere coincidence or the result of a vague and open-ended writing style. Regardless, his work continues to captivate and intrigue people to this day.

Out of his numerous predictions that turned out to be true, one of them is the prediction of The Great fire of London in 1666.

Now let's explore what he actually foretold about Great fire of London;

One of the most commonly cited quatrains is this one:

"The blood of the just will be demanded of London, burnt by fire in the year 66. The ancient Lady will fall from her high place, many of the same sect will be killed."

Isn’t it scary? It's hard not to feel a sense of foreboding and horror while reading these curtains. Continue reading our post as we dig deeper into this.

While it is not entirely clear if this quatrain is actually referring to the Great Fire of London, many people believe that it is. In the years leading up to the fire, London was plagued by religious tensions and political unrest, with many people of the same sect being killed in violent conflicts. Additionally, the "ancient Lady" could be interpreted as a reference to the city of London itself, which was often referred to as the "Lady of the Thames."

Whether or not Nostradamus actually predicted the Great Fire of London is still a matter of debate, but it's clear that his quatrains continue to inspire curiosity and fascination in people around the world.

Some skeptics argue that Nostradamus's predictions were so vague and open to interpretation that they could be applied to almost any event in history. But others believe that his words hold a deeper truth, and that he was able to see into the future in a way that few others could.

Another quatrain that has been interpreted as referring to the Great Fire of London is:

"The trembling so hard in the month of May,

Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury in Taurus:

Venus also, Cancer, Mars, in Virgo,

Hail will fall larger than an egg."

Some interpret this quatrain to suggest that a disaster would occur during May, when Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, and Mercury were aligned in Taurus. The reference to hail "larger than an egg" could be seen as a metaphor for the flames that would ravage the city.

Want to know what actually happened on September 2nd, 1666? Let us get you to the horrific scenery of London at the time of the Great Fire.

In the summer of 1666, London was a bustling metropolis with narrow streets and tightly packed buildings made of timber and thatch. Open flames were commonly used for lighting and cooking, and the hot and dry weather had made the city a tinderbox waiting to ignite.

On September 2nd, a fire broke out in the bakery of Thomas Farriner on Pudding Lane. Despite efforts to extinguish the fire, it quickly spread throughout the city. High winds fanned the flames, and the tightly packed buildings only fueled the fire further.

Over the next four days, the fire raged through the city, destroying over 13,000 buildings and leaving tens of thousands homeless. The firefighters of London were ill-equipped to handle such a massive blaze, and many citizens were forced to take matters into their own hands, using whatever tools they had to try and control the flames.

As the fire spread, panic gripped the city. People fled their homes, carrying whatever belongings they could salvage, and sought refuge wherever they could find it. The streets were clogged with people and carts, and the air was filled with smoke and ash.

Despite the devastation, there were also stories of heroism and resilience. Ordinary citizens worked together to fight the flames, risking their lives to save their homes and their neighbors. Some even formed human chains to pass buckets of water from hand to hand, in a desperate effort to contain the fire.

In the aftermath of the fire, the city was left in ruins. The Great Fire of London forever changed the landscape and architecture of the city, and forced officials to reconsider the way that buildings were constructed and maintained. But even in the midst of this tragedy, the people of London began the process of rebuilding, determined to create a new city from the ashes of the old.

Horrifying!! Isn't it…?

Let’s not forget it is not his only prophecy that turned out to be true. There are many others.

Almost all of his predictions turned out to be accurate from the Great Fire of London to the Rise and Fall of Empires to the Invention of Modern Technology, Nostradamus’s words continue to fascinate and intrigue us to this day.

The intriguing nature of Nostradamus' prophecies has captured the imagination of people for centuries, fueling endless discussions and debates about their potential meanings and implications for the future.
