Book sales for the 16th century astrologer Nostradamus have skyrocketed over the past few weeks after some suggested that he forecast the death of Queen Elizabeth, who died earlier this month at the age of 96.

Nostradamus May Have Predicted Queen’s Death
Daily Mail  reported that the week before the Queen’s death on September 8, a mere five copies of Mario Reading’s Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies For The Future  had managed to entice paying customers. A week following Her Majesty’s passing, however, the book sold nearly eight thousand editions; successfully managing to top the bestseller charts  by September the 17th.
In his book, which was first published in 2006 by Watkins Publishing , Reading interprets one quatrain as, “Queen Elizabeth II will die, circa 22, at the age of around 96,” in one of the book’s passages.
Sure enough, the Queen did pass away in 2022 at the age of 96. Reading’s book is a translation of the prophecies of Nostradamus, who lived from 1503-1566.

Nostradamus Predicts King Charles Will Abdicate
Nostradamus also addressed the future of King Charles, predicting that he would abdicate the throne and hand it over to his second son Prince Harry, who is now fifth in line for succession after quitting his royal duties and moving across the world to California with his American wife Meghan Markle.
Nostradamus reportedly said that Charles would abdicate because of “resentments held against him by a certain proportion of the British population, following his divorce from Diana, Princess of Wales,” book author Mario Reading explained, as per Fox 9 .
“Because they disapproved of his divorce, a man who later they considered unworthy; The People will force out the King of the islands; A Man will replace who never expected to be king,” Reading added.
I looked back through this Nostradamus book I read in 2020 & I had highlighted its prediction that #QueenElizabeth  would die in 2022.
The prediction is on page 108 & King Charles' proclamation was yesterday on the day of the Full Moon.

Nostradamus’ Other Predictions
Before the passing of the Queen, it had been reported that Nostradamus predicted the war in Ukraine, adding that France may end up facing a threat from the east.
“Blue-head shall white-head harm in such degree, As France’s good to both shall e’er amount,” Nostradamus reportedly predicted.
However, Nostradamus expert Bobby Shailer suggested that this might actually be a prediction of a third world war, which would take place in the “next few years.”

The Sun  reported that other predictions made by Nostradamus that have been interpreted as being correct include World War II, the September 11 terrorist attacks, the atomic bomb, and the French Revolution. Some even say that Nostradamus predicted the COVID-19 pandemic.
A Yearly-Horoscope alleges that over 70 percent of Nostradamus’ prophecies have come true so far.
“Virtually every single quatrain has come nearly or completely true,” Reading said of Nostradamus before his death in 2017, according to The Express .
Nostradamus’ 2023 Predictions
Some predictions that Nostradamus made for 2023 include either a world war stemming from Ukraine or a conflict between China and Taiwan, with the ominous line, “Seven months the Great War, people dead of evil-doing.”
The ‘great war’ in Nostradamus’ prediction for 2023 will last 7 months.

He also predicted that a new Pope will succeed Pope Francis, describing Francis as the last true Pope since his successor will be involved in a major scandal.
The world continues to be in mourning for the Queen, who reportedly died “peacefully” at her home Balmoral in Scotland on September 8. As we continue to mourn her, it will be interesting to see what other predictions made by Nostradamus come true in the future.
