Nostradamus predicted his own death.....and even beyond!

Nostradamus was a 16th century Frenchman who could, apparantly, predict the future. In his writings, he forwarned many disasters such as the Great Fire of London in 1666, the rise of Hitler and the Second World War.

Nostradamus even predicted his own death in 1566. Before he died he went to an engraver and asked him to engrave a date on a small metal plate. He then instructed the engraver that the engraved plate should be placed in his coffin.

In the year 1700 it was decided to move the coffin from the grave where it had lain for more that 134 years to a more prominent site. Before it was lowered into the earth the coffin was opened. Inside the coffin a metal plate was found bearing the date 1700.
