Nostradamus Dies at 62

Renowned French apothecary and prophet Nostradamus was born Michel de Nostradame in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, France in December of 1503. Nostradamus worked as a doctor treating people who were sick with the plague when he had a psychic revelation.

From then on, he became a seer, publishing various prophetic collections, the most popular of which, “Les Propheties” was created in 1555. These collections have been interpreted over centuries and many of his followers credit him with anticipating several major events around the globe, from Hitler to the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Nostradamus died on July 2, 1566 due to complications from gout and edema. The day before he had predicted his own death to his secretary, saying: “You will not find me alive at sunrise.”
