It is said that within a few years of his setting into Salon, he began moving away. He would spend hours in his study at night mediating in front of a bowl filled with water and herbs. The meditation would bring on a trance and vision. He believed that that visions were the basis of his prediction for the future. In 1550, he wrote his first almanac of astrological information and predictions for coming year. The publication received huge popularity and spread his name all across French which encouraged him to write more and then he came up with many more predictions which later happened, directly or indirectly.
Later, he planned to write 10 volumes which would contain 100 predictions which forecasted the next 2000 years. In due course of time, he ran into many controversies too, where many people even ended claiming him to be psychic, insane and devil’s servant. Despite all this, he became famous and in demand by many of Europe’s elite. Wife of King Henry II of France, was one of the Nostradamus’ greatest admirer, after reading his Almanacs of 1555 where he hinted at unnamed threats to her family, she called him Paris to explain and draw up horoscope for her children.
A few years later she also made him counselor and physician in ordinary to King Henry’s court. After some time, Nostradamus also explained another prophecy from centuries, which was assumed to refer to King Henry. The prophecy explained that young lion who would overcome an older one on the field of battle, and the young lion would pierce the eye of the older one and he would die a cruel death.
Nostradamus warned the king that he should avoid ceremonial jousting but king didn’t. After three year when King Henry was 41 years old he died in a jousting match when a lance from his opponent pierced the King’s visor and entered his head behind the eye deep into his brain. He held on the life for 10 days before finally dying of infection.
