He will cause the escutcheon of Florence to bloom.
The blood royal will be so very mixed,
be constrained by Hesperia:
One will wait until his term has expired,

Towards Spain Redbeard to the

When a bearded star will fall in Artois.
By the shaven

Overburdened he will not pass the gate:
He will speak with such great
fury and rage,
That to fire and blood he will consign the entire sex.
The child of the great one not by

He will cause all those of the balance to tremble,
from the Pyrenees to Mont Cenis.

Ships sunk to the bottom, taken by Trident.

tranquillity of the great number,
By land and sea counsel countermanded:
Near Antonne Genoa, Nice in the shadow

Come suddenly the terror will be great,
Hidden by the principal
ones of the affair:
And the lady on the charcoal will no longer be in sight,
Thus little by little will the great
ones be angered.

and near the Alps
the Cock will ruin him.
No longer will the great one be in his false sleep,
Uneasiness will come to replace
A phalanx of gold, azure and vermilion arrayed
To subjugate Africa and gnaw it to the bone,
Of the regions subject to the Balance,
They will trouble the mountains with great war,
Captives the entire sex

And he will not want to lodge in the cities:
Aix, Carpentras, L'Isle, Vaucluse Mont, Cavaillon,
all these places will he abolish his trace.
All degrees of Ecclesiastical honor
Will be changed to that
of Jupiter and Quirinus:
The priest of Quirinus to one of Mars,
Then a King of France will make him one of Vulcan.

And in thirteen years to the Barbarian Satrap:
On both sides
they will cause such loss
That one will bless the Bark and its cope.

Through the coming of the great legislator:
He will raise the humble, he will vex the rebels,
will not appear on this earth.

The Barbaric League will be driven
Of the two laws the heathen one will give way,
Barbarian and Frank in perpetual strife.

Seven months in advance it will deliver a nocturnal omen:
The Eastern wall will fall
Seven days the enemies directly to the gates.
At the conclusion of the treaty outside
Will not go he who is placed in despair:
When those of Arbois, of Langres against Bresse
the mountains of Dôle an enemy ambush.
Those who will have undertaken to subvert,
An unparalleled realm,
powerful and invincible:
They will act through deceit, nights three to warn,
When the greatest one will read his Bible
at the table.
He will be born of the gulf and unmeasured city,
Born of obscure and dark family:
who the revered power of the great King
Will want to destroy through Rouen and Evreux.
Through the Suevi
and neighboring places,
They will be at war over the clouds:
Swarm of marine locusts and gnats,
The faults of
Geneva will be laid quite bare.

The great city will be vexed
Some great ones among them led astray in exile,
Byzantium hard pressed by the head of Persia.

In the Frank land he will be inundated by water:
Of Trojan blood will

And he will be confined safely be the Spaniards.

Against Orléans they will cause disturbances.
In the Cyclades, in Perinthus and
In Sparta and the entire Pelopennesus:
Very great famine, plague through false dust,
Nine months will
it last and throughout the entire peninsula.
At the market that they call that of liars,
Of the entire
Torrent and field of Athens:
They will be surprised by the light horses,
By those of Alba when Mars is in Leo and
Saturn in Aquarius.
After the see has been held seventeen years,
Five will change within the same period
Then one will be elected at the same time,
One who will not be too comfortable to the Romans.
Under the land of the round lunar globe,
When Mercury will be dominating:
The isle of Scotland will produce a
One who will put the English into confusion.
He will transfer into great Germany
and Flanders, Ghent, Bruges and Boulogne:
The truce feigned, the great Duke of Armenia
Will assail Vienna and Cologne.

Then it will come to stir up the great Empire:
In the Aegean
Sea the impediments of wood
Obstructing the diverted Tyrrhenian Sea.
The rose upon the middle of the great
For new deeds public shedding of blood:
To speak the truth, one will have a closed mouth,
Then at the time
of need the awaited one will come late.
The one born deformed suffocated in horror,
In the habitable city
of the great King:
The severe edict of the captives revoked,
Hail and thunder, Condom inestimable.
the forty-eighth climacteric degree,
At the end of Cancer very great dryness:
Fish in sea, river, lake boiled hectic,
Béarn, Bigorre in distress through fire from the sky.
Milan, Ferrara, Turin and Aquileia,
vexed by the Celtic nation:
By the Lion and his Eagle¹s phalanx,
When the old British chief Rome will have.
The incendiary trapped in his own fire,
Of fire from the sky at Carcassonne and the Comminges:
Foix, Auch, Mazères,
the high old man escaped,
Through those of Hesse and Thuringia, and some Saxons.
Quatrains - Century VI
Around the Pyrenees mountains a great throng
Of foreign people to aid the new King:
Near the great temple of Le Mas by the Garonne,
A Roman chief will fear him in the water.
In the year
five hundred eighty more or less,
One will await a very strange century:
In the year seven hundred and three the heavens
That several kingdoms one to five will make a change.
The river that tries the new Celtic
Will be in great discord with the Empire:
The young Prince through the ecclesiastical people
the scepter of the crown of concord.
The Celtic river will change its course,
No longer will it include
the city of Agrippina:
All changed except the old language,
Saturn, Leo, Mars, Cancer in plunder.

Through long rain the length of the arctic pole:
Samarobryn one hundred leagues
from the hemisphere,
The will live without law exempt from politics.
There will appear towards the North
Not far from Cancer the bearded star:
Susa, Siena, Boeotia, Eretria,
The great one of Rome will die, the night
Norway and Dacia and the British Isle
Will be vexed by the united brothers:
The Roman chief sprung
from Gallic blood
And his forces hurled back into the forests.
Those who were in the realm for knowledge
Will become impoverished at the change of King:
Some exiled without support, having no gold,
The lettered and
letters will not be at a high premium.
In the sacred temples scandals will be perpetrated,
They will be
reckoned as honors and commendations:
Of one of whom they engrave medals of silver and of gold,
The end will be in
very strange torments.
In a short time the temples with colors
Of white and black of the two intermixed:
Red and yellow ones will carry off theirs from them,
Blood, land, plague, famine, fire extinguished by water.
The seven branches will be reduced to three,
The elder ones will be surprised by death,
The two will be
seduced to fratricide,
The conspirators will be dead while sleeping.
To raise forces to ascend to the
In the Vatican the Royal blood will hold fast:
Flemings, English, Spain with Aspire
Against Italy and France
will he contend.
A doubtful one will not come far from the realm,
The greater part will want to uphold
A Capitol will not want him to reign at all,
He will be unable to bear his great burden.
from his land a King will lose the battle,
At once escaped, pursued, then captured,
Ignorant one taken under the golden
Under false garb, and the enemy surprised.
Under the tomb will be found a Prince
Who will be
valued above Nuremberg:
The Spanish King in Capricorn thin,
Deceived and betrayed by the great Wittenberg.
That which will be carried off by the young Hawk,
By the Normans of France and Picardy:
The black ones of the
temple of the Black Forest place
Will make an inn and fire of Lombardy.
After the files the ass-drivers
They will be obliged to change diverse garbs:
Those of Saturn burned by the millers,
Except the greater
part which will not be covered.
The great King abandoned by the Physicians,
By fate not the Jew's art
he remains alive,
He and his kindred pushed high in the realm,
Pardon given to the race which denies Christ.
The true flame will devour the lady
Who will want to put the Innocent Ones to the fire:
Before the assault
the army is inflamed,
When in Seville a monster in beef will be seen.
The feigned union will be of short
Some changed most reformed:
In the vessels people will be in suffering,
Then Rome will have a new Leopard.
When those of the arctic pole are united together,
Great terror and fear in the East:
the great trembling supported,
Rhodes, Byzantium stained with Barbarian blood.
Within the land of the
great heavenly temple,
Nephew murdered at London through feigned peace:
The bark will then become schismatic,
liberty will be proclaimed everywhere.
Coins depreciated by the spirit of the realm,
And people will be
stirred up against their King:
New peace made, holy laws become worse,
Paris was never in so severe an array.
Mars and the scepter will be found conjoined
Under Cancer calamitous war:
Shortly afterwards a new King
will be anointed,
One who for a long time will pacify the earth.
Through adverse Mars will the monarchy
Of the great fisherman be in ruinous trouble:
The young red black one will seize the hierarchy,
The traitors will
act on a day of drizzle.
For four years the see will be held with some little good,
One libidinous in
life will succeed to it:
Ravenna, Pisa and Verona will give support,
Longing to elevate the Papal cross.
Within the Isles of five rivers to one,
Through the expansion of the great Chyren Selin:
Through the drizzles
in the air the fury of one,
Six escaped, hidden bundles of flax.
The great Celt will enter Rome,
a throng of the exiled and banished:
The great Pastor will put to death every man
Who was united at the Alps for the
The saintly widow hearing the news,
Of her offspring placed in perplexity and trouble:
will be instructed to appease the quarrels,
He will pile them up by his pursuit of the shaven heads.
the appearance of the feigned sanctity,
The siege will be betrayed to the enemies:
In the night when they trusted
to sleep in safety,
Near Brabant will march those of Liège.
The King will find that which he desired so
When the Prelate will be blamed unjustly:
His reply to the Duke will leave him dissatisfied,
He who in Milan
will put several to death.
Beaten to death by rods for treason,
Captured he will be overcome through his
Frivolous counsel held out to the great captive,
When Berich will come to bite his nose in fury.
His last hand through sanguinary,
He will be unable to protect himself by sea:
Between two rivers he will fear
the military hand,
The black and irate one will make him rue it.
The device of flying fire
to trouble the great besieged chief:
Within there will be such sedition
That the profligate ones will be in despair.
Near the Bear and close to the white wool,
Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo,
Mars, Jupiter, the Sun
will burn a great plain,
Woods and cities letters hidden in the candle.
Neither good nor evil through
Will reach the confines of Perugia,
Pisa to rebel, Florence to see an evil existence,

against his people,
A native of Blois will subjugate the Ligurians,
Memel, Cordoba and the Dalmatians,
seven then the shadow to the King, New Year¹s money and ghosts.
The shadow of the realm of Navarre untrue,
It will make his life one of fate unlawful:
The vow made in Cambrai wavering,
King Orléans will give a lawful
In life, fate and death a sordid, unworthy man of gold,
He will not be a new Elector of Saxony:
From Brunswick he will send for a sign of love,
The false seducer delivering it to the people.
the Garland lady of the town of Burgos,
They will impose for the treason committed:
The great prelate of Leon through
Undone by false pilgrims and ravishers.
Banners of the deepest part of Spain,
from the tip and ends of Europe:
Troubles passing near the bridge of Laigne,
Its great army will be routed by a band.
Garden of the world near the new city,
In the path of the hollow mountains:
It will be seized and
plunged into the Tub,
Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.
The Meuse by day in the land of Luxembourg,
It will find Saturn and three in the urn:
Mountain and plain, town, city and borough,
Flood in Lorraine, betrayed
by the great urn.
Some of the lowest places of the land of Lorraine
Will be united with the Low Germans:
Through those of the see Picards, Normans, those of Main,
And they will be joined to the cantons.
the place where the Lys and the Scheldt unite,
The nuptials will be arranged for a long time:
At the place in Antwerp
where they carry the chaff,
Young old age wife undefiled.
The three concubines will fight each other for
a long time,
The greatest one the least will remain to watch:
The great Selin will no longer be her patron,
will call him fire shield white route.
She born in this world of a furtive concubine,
At two raised high
by the sad news:
She will be taken captive by her enemies,
And brought to Malines and Brussels.
unfortunate nuptials will be celebrated
In great joy but the end unhappy:
Husband and mother will slight the daughter-in-law,
The Apollo dead and the daughter-in-law more pitiful.
The royal prelate his bowing too low,
flow of blood will come out of his mouth:
The Anglican realm a realm pulled out of danger,
For long dead as a stump
alive in Tunis.
The uplifted one will not know his scepter,
He will disgrace the young children of the
Never was there a more filthy and cruel being,
For their wives the king will banish them to death.
In the time of mourning the feline monarch
Will make war upon the young Macedonian:
Gaul to shake,
the bark to be in jeopardy,
Marseilles to be tried in the West a talk.
Within Lyons twenty-five of one
Five citizens, Germans, Bressans, Latins:
Under a noble one they will lead a long train,
by barks of mastiffs.
I weep for Nice, Monaco, Pisa, Genoa,
Savona, Siena, Capua, Modena, Malta:
the above blood and sword for a New Year's gift,
Fire, the earth will tremble, water an unhappy reluctance.
Betta, Vienna, Emorte, Sopron,
They will want to deliver Pannonia to the Barbarians:
Enormous violence through
pike and fire,
The conspirators discovered by a matron.
Near "Sorbia" to assail Hungary,
herald of "Brudes" (dark ones?) will come to warn them:
Byzantine chief, Salona of Slavonia,
He will come
to convert them to the law of the Arabs.
Cydonia, Ragusa, the city of St. Jerome,
With healing help to
grow green again:
The King's son dead because of the death of two heroes,
Araby and Hungary will take the same course.
Weep Milan, weep Lucca and Florence,
As your great Duke climbs into the chariot:
The see to change
it advances to near Venice,
When at Rome the Colonna will change.
O vast Rome, thy ruin approaches,
of thy walls, of thy blood and substance:
The one harsh in letters will make a very horrible notch,
driven into all up to the hilt.
The chief of London through the realm of America,
The Isle of Scotland
will be tried by frost:
King and Reb will face an Antichrist so false,
That he will place them in the conflict all
A very mighty trembling in the month of May,
Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter and Mercury in Taurus:
Venus also, Cancer, Mars in Virgo,
Hail will fall larger than an egg.
The army of the sea will stand
before the city,
Then it will leave without making a long passage:
A great flock of citizens will be seized on land,
Fleet to return to seize it great robbery.
The shining deed of the old one exalted anew,
South and Aquilon they will be very great:
Raised by his own sister great crowds,
Fleeing, murdered in the thicket
Through an object the eye will swell very much,
Burning so much that the snow will fall:
The fields watered will come to shrink,
As the primate succumbs at Reggio.
The earth and air will
freeze a very great sea,
When they will come to venerate Thursday:
That which will be never was it so fair,
the four parts they will come to honor it.
The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great
King of Terror:
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
The present time together with the past
Will be judged by the great Joker:
The world too late will
be tired of him,
And through the clergy oath-taker disloyal.
The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
Not far from the great millennial age,
When the buried will
go out from their tombs.
Long awaited he will never return
In Europe, he will appear in Asia:
of the league issued from the great Hermes,
And he will grow over all the Kings of the East.
Senate will ordain the triumph
For one who afterwards will be vanquished, driven out:
At the sound of the trumpet
of his adherents there will be
Put up for sale their possessions, enemies expelled.
Thirty adherents of
the order of Quirites
Banished, their possessions given their adversaries:
All their benefits will be taken as misdeeds,
Fleet dispersed, delivered to the Corsairs.
Sudden joy to sudden sadness,
It will occur at Rome for
the graces embraced:
Grief, cries, tears, weeping, blood, excellent mirth,
Contrary bands surprised and trussed up.
The old roads will all be improved,
One will proceed on them to the modern Memphis:
The great Mercury
of Hercules fleur-de-lis,
Causing to tremble lands, sea and country.
In the realm the great one of the
great realm reigning,
Through force of arms the great gates of brass
He will cause to open, the King and Duke joining,
Fort demolished, ship to the bottom, day serene.
A treasure placed in a temple by Hesperian citizens,
Therein withdrawn to a secret place:
The hungry bonds to open the temple,
Retaken, ravished, a horrible prey in
Cries, weeping, tears will come with knives,
Seeming to flee, they will deliver a final attack,
Parks around to set up high platforms,
The living pushed back and murdered instantly.
The signal to
give battle will not be given,
They will be obliged to go out of the park:
The banner around Ghent will be recognized,
Of him who will cause all his followers to be put to death.
The illegitimate girl so high, high, not low,
The late return will make the grieved ones contended:
The Reconciled One will not be without debates,
and losing all his time.
The old tribune on the point of trembling,
He will be pressed not to deliver
The will, non-will, speaking the timid evil,
To deliver to his friends lawfully.
a griffin will come the King of Europe,
Accompanied by those of Aquilon:
He will lead a great troop of red ones and
And they will go against the King of Babylon.
A Great King will come to take port near Nice,
Thus the death of the great empire will be completed:
In Antibes will he place his heifer,
The plunder by sea
all will vanish.
Foot and Horse at the second watch,
They will make an entry devastating all by sea:
the port of Marseilles he will enter,
Tears, cries, and blood, never times so bitter.
The walls will be
converted from brick to marble,
Seven and fifty pacific years:
Joy to mortals, the aqueduct renewed,
of fruits, joy and mellifluous times.
A hundred times will the inhuman tyrant die,
In his place put one
learned and mild,
The entire Senate will be under his hand,
He will be vexed by a rash scoundrel.
the year 1609, Roman clergy,
At the beginning of the year you will hold an election:
Of one gray and black issued
Never was there one so wicked as he.
Before his father the child will be killed,
father afterwards between ropes of rushes:
The people of Geneva will have exerted themselves,
The chief lying in the
middle like a log.
The new bark will take trips,
There and near by they will transfer the Empire:
Arles will retain the hostages,
Near by, two columns of Porphyry found.
Scorn from Nîmes, from Arles and
Not to obey the Hesperian edict:
To the tormented to condemn the great one,
Six escaped in seraphic garb.
To the Spains will come a very powerful King,
By land and sea subjugating the South:
This evil will
cause, lowering again the crescent,
Clipping the wings of those of Friday.
The Religion of the name of
the seas will win out
Against the sect of the son of Adaluncatif:
The stubborn, lamented sect will be afraid
the two wounded by A and A.
Triremes full of captives of every age,
Good time for bad, the sweet for the
Prey to the Barbarians hasty they will be too soon,
Anxious to see the feather wail in the wind.
For the merry maid the bright splendor
Will shine no longer, for long will she be without salt:
bullies, wolves odious,
All confusion universal monster.
The end of wolf, lion, ox and ass,
deer they will be with mastiffs:
No longer will the sweet manna fall upon them,
More vigilance and watch for the mastiffs.
The great empire will be for England,
The all-powerful one for more than three hundred years:
forces to pass by sea and land,
The Lusitanians will not be satisfied thereby.
