The 2024 prophecies of Nostradamus are just as terrifying as you could expect

Even half a millennium after his death, Nostradamus remains history’s most famous astrologer. This French apothecary, physician, and reputed seer, among the rest, is best known for his book Les Prophéties, a collection of 942 poetic quatrains allegedly predicting future events.

His quatrains have been re-read and re-interpreted for many, many years, as many believe that most of his predictions did come true.

It is said that he predicted the Great Fire of London, Hitler’s rise to power, both World Wars, and the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those interested in his work, which was written in a combination of Greek, Italian, Latin, and Provençal, believe he also predicted the September 11 terrorist attacks and even COVID-19.


Over the years, it was determined that his predictions were real to a great extent, and sadly, what he wrote about the year 2024 is not bright.

Environmental Disaster

The Frenchman described the year 2024 as a catastrophic for the environment. He predicted a complete disarray and painted a photo of floods and the Earth drying out due to the disastrous ecological imbalances.

A “very great famine through pestiferous wave” could refer to devastating floods that wipe off crops, spread diseases, and cause mass starvation, rather than plain floods.

If these visions are accurate, we may be in for even more disastrous climate events this years than most of us fear.


Conflict between Chinese and Russian Navy

It has been written by many journalists, economists and geopolitical experts, that China’s position in the world would soon change as they would raise as a global power. According to many, if this happens, it may lead to a Cold War between China and the States.

In one of his quatrain which opens with a vision of ‘combat and naval battle’, Nostradamus writes that the ‘Red adversary will become pale with fear / Putting the great Ocean in dread.’

As per many experts, ‘red adversary‘ is a reference to communist China and the rest of the quatrain refers to a confrontation at sea, which might have far-reaching consequences for world peace.

The Nostradamus Royal Tumult

The French astrologer made plenty of predictions about the royals that turned out to be true. Among the rest, he predicted the death of Henry II. In a quatrain, Nostradamus wrote, “the young lion will overcome the older one,” and that he will “pierce his eyes through a golden cage,” and that “two wounds” will ensure a “cruel death.”

Henry II was pierced into his eye and skull during a joust with one of his young soldiers when the soldier’s lance shattered. He then died from a slow and painful death from sepsis.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II was also predicted by the famous prophet, and he was said to have guessed her exact age at the time of her death.

For the year 2024, Nostradamus refers to someone he calls the “King of the Isles,” who has had a controversial divorce and who is “driven out by force.” He wrote the King would be replaced by “one who will have no mark of a king.”

A new Pope

“Through the death of the very old Pontiff / A Roman of good age will be elected,” Nostradamus wrote.

Many believe that there indeed could be a change happening considering Pope Francis’ advanced age and health issues in recent times. According to his writing, the incoming pope will ‘weaken his see’ and continue in office for a some time.


One possible interpretation of “weakening” is that the church’s leadership, under the next pope, will lead to a reduction in its influence and integrity.

Living in the year of 2024,we are yet to witness if any of the prophecies of the great Nostradamus would come true.
