Nostradamus: Election 2016 examines the prophecies of Nostradamus and asks whether he predicted the outcome of the current presidential battle.
Some experts on Nostradamus’s prophecies say that the French seer has already predicted the result of the 2016 presidential election in his 1555 book Les Propheties.
They point to his description of the rise of the “masculine woman” also known as “The Queen” or “The Blonde One” and also of the “great shameless, audacious bawler”. The latter they assume refers to Donald Trump.
They further point to Nostradamus’s reference to “rigged elections” and of great unrest following the results.
Here are some translations of a few of his verses:
The great shameless, audacious bawler,
He will be elected governor of the army:
The boldness of his contention,
The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.
The masculine woman will exert herself to the north
She will annoy nearly all of Europe and the rest of the world.
Two failures will put her in such an imbalance
That both life and death will strengthen Eastern Europe
There are alternative translations as well. You can read more over on the History Channel and make up your own mind.
In any other election this might seem super wacky but it seems par for the course this time around.
Nostradamus 2016 Election Winner Prediction
So who does Nostradamus predict will win the 2016 election? Well that first verse seems to be a clue that means Donald Trump will win the election.
Do the lines “The great shameless, audacious bawler, He will be elected governor of the army” predict a Trump victory?
Or does the fact the “masculine woman” will “exert herself to the north” mean Hillary will win?
UPDATE: You can see what the show’s conclusion was of who Nostradamus predicted will win the 2016 election here.
Current betting odds have Clinton to win at 4/1 and a Trump victory at 8/1.
However, things change fast in politics so you might be better off just grabbing a few beers and popcorn and settling in on election night for a nail-biter!
