New Evidence for Lost Treasures of Orval in Amazing EVP... Listen here to Nostradamus, telling you where to start your True Treasure Hunt, in his own voice!

Part 1: Q 20 - C 9


It is the spring of 1791 and among the brave citizens of Paris there are rumours circulating about thousands of nobles who are ready to abduct the royal family from the French capital. People are talking of a widespread conspiracy that can put an end to this wicked Revolution.

King Louis XVI is a prisoner in his own country now. His wife, Marie Antoinette, secretly writes letters to her brother, the Austrian Emperor. She begs him to help them. Couriers smuggle the letters abroad, but the cold dark walls of the Tuileries Palace have eyes and ears and the brave men are killed; their messages are intercepted by republican agents and the codes are broken. Louis XVI understands that if he wants to start a counter-revolution with a chance to succeed, he has to secure his communications. In other words, he has to use a code that can not be broken...

The royalist general de Bouillé has a considerable army at his disposition in the district Metz, in the northeast of France. His headquarters, in the fortress town of Montmédy, can be a ‘safe place' for the royal family. The border with the Austrian Netherlands is close, and in the case of an emergency, the royal family can retreat to the nearby Abbey of Orval, just across the border.

General de Bouillé thoroughly prepares the flight of the royal family from the revolutionary Paris. Beyond Châlons-en-Champagne, he can secure the route with carefully selected soldiers. A few centuries earlier, the famous prophet Nostradamus seems to have foreseen these events in one of his dark verses - quatrain 20 of the ninth centurie:

The night falls, trough the forest of Reims they come

In two parts to Orval, Herne, the white stone.

Now that the monk is in Varennes, in black and grey,

will the choice of Capet be the cause of storm, fire, blood, axe...

When general de Bouillé reads these lines, he realizes how helpful it might be if he only had to talk about ‘Q20, C9' and would be fully understood by his fellow conspirators. They only need to know that the key to the code can be found in the quatrains of Nostradamus; if someone says ‘20,9', it will be immediately obvious to everyone what the real message is. Such a code can not be broken by someone who does not know the keyword is: ‘Nostradamus'.

The king and the queen have to take the route through the Forêt de la Montagne de Reims, to Montmédy and Orval. ‘Vaultorte' is an anagram of ‘Orvaulte', the old French word for 'Orval'... and what do we find in the realm of the Abbey of Orval? A white menhir - a white stone! - called ‘Le Blanc'! If the royal family is not even safe in Orval, they will find a refuge deeper into the Austrian Netherlands, in the village of Herne (county of Hainaut). Agathe de Rambaud, the nurse of the Crown Prince, has a cottage there.

‘The monk, black and gray' is the king - a man of chaste habits who is disguised in grey. And ‘Varennes' is on the route between Paris and Montmédy, where Louis XVI, a distant descendant of Hugh Capet, together with general de Bouillé would unleash a storm of fire and blood upon the revolutionary forces. What general de Bouillé can't possibly imagine at that moment, is that the royal family will be arrested in Varennes, and that their flight to Orval eventually will lead the king and his wife to the bloody axe of the guillotine...

The fortune of the Bourbons and the jewels of the queen are entrusted to the royal hairdresser, Leonard. He has to bring them in safety in the Abbey of Orval, where they will be part of the general's war chest that has to finance the counter-revolutionary forces...

Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and their children never reached Orval. But Leonard did. And together with the royal hairdresser disappeared the Bourbon Treasure somewhere in or around the abbey...

The Abbay of Orval

From the Orval website :

While the 17th Century was to be one of disaster for the Low Countries, for Orval it was to be the highest point of its development. Two Abbots acquired a reputation throughout the whole Order. The first, Bernard de Montgaillard, from southern France, managed, despite the opposition of the community, to have himself appointed Abbot of Orval by Archduke Albert and Isabelle (1605). From that moment he devoted himself to his monks who finally became very attached to him. He put the monastery back on its feet economically and restored the buildings. But more especially he was a precursor in giving his community reform constitutions which led to an increase in fervour. Novices came in great numbers; in 1619 the community was composed of 43 members: 27 professed monks, 8 lay brothers and 8 novices.

Shortly after Bernard de Montgaillard, a new catastrophe hit Orval ; in August 1637 at the height of the Thirty Years War, the troops of the Maréchal de ChâtiIlon pillaged and completely gutted the monastery and its dependencies. The reconstruction took place in a climate of insecurity through to the end of the century.


In 1789 the French Revolution broke out and all the possessions of Orval across the border were immediately confiscated. The abbey lived through various alerts, more or less serious, until the decisive day, 23rd June 1793, when the revolutionary troops led by General Loison sacked and burned the monastery Everything was wiped out. The community withdrew to its refuge in Luxembourg and then to the Priory of Conques. The community was officially suppressed on the 7th November 1795 and its members disbanded. For more than a century the charred walls of Orval were at the mercy of the weather and of stone- and treasure-seekers.

Nostradamus in Orval

Nostradamus stayed for some time in the abbey of Orval. Some scholars have said that he was the - anonymous - author of the "Prophecy of Orval", that emerged after the French Revolution. Possibly, he wrote the Prophecy of Orval when staying in the abbey. And maybe, he has conceived there some of his famous quatrains.

Or... were the real authors some royalists who wanted to communicate with eich other in a code that could not be broken?

The Nostradamus Code


Is it possible that the royalists have used the quatrains of Nostradamus to communicate in a code about the War Chest that never was found? Maybe they were waiting for the right moment to use the Treasure of the Bourbons. But Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were decapitated and the right moment never came... And then, suddenly, the treasure was lost... There are "hidden treasures" in some quatrains of Nostradamus - or some quatrains attributed to Nostradamus - and it is possible to place those stanzas in Orval...

Q 7, C 9:

Qui ouurira le monument trouué

Et ne viendra le serrer promptement

Mal luy viendra, & ne pourra prouué

Si mieux doit estre Roy Breton ou Normand

Q 81, C X

Q 66, C VIII:

      ANTI – TERRORISM !!!

      I the Oriental Chyren (Hindu Leader) who had experienced various events regarding the incidents as depicted by the French Astrologer-cum-clairvoyant, the Fortune Seer as you know the Fortune Teller, the famous French Astrologer Dr. Michael Nostradamus, who discuss about the Hindu Leader & wrote about him. & as relayed by Hindi News Channel “Aaj Tak” & “Discovery Channal” dated 22/12/07. for me as I am as per his predictions and I have experienced those events in my life as the ‘HINDU LEADER”

      Till date America desperately tried that India should not come up as super power with competition world wide. Not only this but other nations of the world also tried this but all in vain. The Islamic Jehadi terrorist devils Musharuff (The king of Terror) and Osama Bin Laden retaliated Jehad by 11/9 incident on World Trade Centre and reprimanded America about Jehad by terrorism which made India’s stunt to drive out & uproot terrorism through out the world tangible.

      The terror Demon Parvej Musharuff when ascended to power in Pakistan and after taking reins of Pakistan in his hands no sooner than 2 year passed the 11/9 incident took place and Parvej Musharaff was one of the ‘Brain Behind Terror’ and so also Dr. Michael Nostradamus has depicted in his prediction about him as ‘The king of Terror’ It is pertinent to note, I was the first to tell all on 24 & 25/01/2007 mentioning in my writings that Musharaff’s power play of terrorisms will be danger and so it is today.

      It is therefore worth and being brought to discussion through this news channel & media, I am needed as the ‘HINDU LEADER’ and INDIA is needed by America in the final stage of IIIrd World War as enemy’s. enemy is friend and as per this view I and my India will ever help America.

      Against Pakistan sponsored terrorist causing bomblast taking toll on numerous innocent lives of citizens , the State Government and also the Central Government failed to take stringent steps to eradicate terrorism & its roots and so terrorisms has grown vehemently stronger & so it is mercilessly needed the terrorists camps to be destroyed & ruined, but the present government finally plays, every policy for gaining VOTE BANK and consequently to be in continuous ‘POWER PLAY’, they do not act to kill terrorism permanently & so apprehension reins in Governments & so they need to be replaced by blessing of Goddesses Mahur, Ambejogai, Tuljapur blessed Power of India needs to be given in my hands to aim eradication & uproot terrorism out of world which I have aimed since April’06 for that first I wrote to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India to permit The Shri Ram Janam Bhumi Trust to construct and build great monument of Lord Ram and with that their purpose, I observed ‘Guru Charitra Penance’(Parayan) from 14/08/06 to 27/08/2006. Therefore on 16/10/2006, I wrote to eradicate Pakistan sponsored terrorism through Indian Army, Navy & Air Force or else give power in my hands as like in the hands of Man of God (Angel). Time and again this I have mentioned in my writings & therefore on 07/05/2007 and on 09/07/2007 I have twice walked by footstep from Bhiwandi to Siddhivinayak temple, Prabhadevi, Mumbai, in protest of cruel & terror acts of terrorism and endavoured a lot to bring awareness against terrorism but in no vain and today awareness is a ‘pay no need’ topic keeping negligible aware ness level against terrorism and so I m compelled to bring our this all before Media and TV channel, News channel to serve the first step towards eradication & uprooting terrorism.

      Since April 2006 I have come before the world with plea to uproot and end terrorism but really speaking I have commenced this task in 78/79 and with powers of God & Goddesses the happened incidents & events to occur in future are through me as the medium, HINDU LEADER and so I could not resist my desire then to observe penance & fast on every Thursday, and consequently I started visits to Aaudumbar, District Sangli a pious, holy sanctified, pure, blessed place of Datta the Lord for offering prayers & utsav & thereafter observed complete panance of Guru Charitraparayan with a resolution to study the holy hymns of Lord Datta since 28/04/2001 further 12 years all this events and incidents experienced by me and now being experienced are depicted in the compendium Centuries by ‘Dr. Michael Nostradamus’ listening the inner urge within me to uproot terrorism I started my task in which I came across the compendium which fits me in descriptions.

      I appeal all men, society, Castes and creeds, countries and continents and finally the anti terrorism attitude in World to be with me to strike the dagger in the heart of terrorism the most destructive demon. The III rd World War has begun with Sunnis against Siahs, against Christaininty & I aware my entry on the stage of World war, as Hindu Leader to bring ultimate Justice in the Cosmic world as a Hindu. I favor no political party, but also, I m not against any one but I rely on public awareness to fight out & oust terrorism and to erradicate & uproot terrorism not only through Pakistan but all countries sponsoring nurturing terrorism to hoist Saffron Flag of Hinduism on my India to bring back the all expected “Ramarajya”, and I am born for that.

      Those conducting research on CENTURIES and Dr. Micheal Nastradamus note that no other person fits like me as the perfect Hindu Leader as described by the Great Seer, Greatest Clairvoyant of the World, and so everyone to note & be aware, I the Hindu Leader bring out this facts before the World through media news channel and TV channel.

      And finally to verify & testify, I the Hindu Leader urge America to be precautious in near further as destructive danger from Pakistan Iran and Saudi Arabia, which America will experience soon, be aware of terrorism which most destructive demon is creeping in our neighburhood and finally to take toll on you the innocent you!
