This short focuses on the prophecies of Nostradamus as they relate to Catherine de Medici, who was the wife of Henry II, King of France. She is pleased when she hears that each of her three sons will sit on a throne, but events do not unfold as she expected. Toward the end, the focus shifts to World War II and prophecies about who will be victorious.Written by

With the Germans occupying 2/3 of France and a puppet regime running the rest of it, in 1942 there was a lot of interest in the fate of that troubled country. MGM did this short subject about the great seer Michelle Nostradamus who gave a prophecy to Catherine deMedici, Queen consort of France, married to Henry II.
In 1558 her husband was killed in a freak accident during a tournament while showing his jousting skills. One right after the other, Francis II, Charles IX, and Henry III ascended the throne of France and all had tragedy and early death associated with them.
Indeed the woman survived all of her sons. She had hoped to make good marriages for them and that her husband would surely have about 20 more years on the throne.
What was that which that Scot Bobby Burns said about the best laid plans?
Nice and factual history lesson.
