FROM wars to space travel, it’s claimed Nostradamus has foreseen the major events that have shaped the world.
The French astrologer, who was born Michel de Nostradame, made a host of predictions before he died in July 1566.

His legion of devotees say Hitler, the Moon landing and the Covid pandemic have all been predicted by Nostradumus.
Among his thousands of cryptic prophecies, are also believed to be those which chillingly detail exactly how our world will end.
Here’s what’s in store for 2023 according to the French soothsayer.
MYSTERY MARS MISSION DISASTER
The race to colonise Mars is being led by Elon Musk but Nostradamus predicts this could suffer a set back in the coming year.
The founder of Space X has said that humans could even land on the Red Planet by the year 2029.
But Nostradamus has foretold that that the 2023 could see that schedule knocked off course.
According to the French mystic “celestial fire when the lights of Mars will go out”.
CANNIBALS WALKING THE EARTH
The soothsayer has a bleak prediction for the world at a time of rising food prices.
Humans will begin to take desperate measures in order to survive, including resorting to cannibalism.
“No abbots, monks, no novices to learn; Honey shall cost far more than candle-wax,” he said
“So high will the bushel of wheat rise, that man will be eating his fellow man.”
WORLD WAR 3
Nostradamus is worryingly predicting a larger conflict could stem from the war in Ukraine.
“Seven months the Great War, people dead of evil-doing,” he wrote.
Or it could refer to the ongoing conflict between China and Taiwan which threatens to drag the United States into a terrifying nuclear war.
But the French city of Rouen bizarrely appears to escape the Armageddon in the scary prediction.
“Rouen, Evreux shall not fall to the King,” wrote Nostradamus.
A new Pope to succeed Francis is among the predictions made by Nostradamus for the coming year.
Pope Francis will be the last true Pope and the pontiff who takes his place will create a scandal says the mystic Frenchman.
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will be Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.
The far out Frenchman has predicted a “Celestial fire on the Royal edifice”.
This has been interpreted as suggesting that from the ashes of civilisation a new world order will emerge.
But others believe this could refer to the “end of times” or the start of a new world order.
Nostradamus had predicted temperatures will rise further and sea levels would rise to unexpected levels.
He wrote, “Like the sun the head shall sear the shining sea: The Black Sea’s living fish shall all but boil.
“When Rhodes and Genoa half-starved shall be, the local folk to cut them up shall toil.”
NEW WORLD ORDER
Nostradamus talks about the new alliance of two great powers coming together in his writings.
Intriguingly he says this new alignment will be between a strong man and a weak one or even a male and a female leader.
The alliance seems to work despite itself but sadly, its good effects will not be long lasting.
