In 1999, the year 2000 Millennium was quickly approaching, and an anxious world wondered if Nostradamus was predicting another frightening event for mankind. Nostradamus quatrain #10-72 was dated July 1999, and Nostradamus followers all over the world rushed to see if they might figure out this Nostradamus prophecy before it occurred. Many so-called Nostradamus "experts" thought the word "Angolmois" was an anagram of "Mongolois", and announced that a Mongolian antichrist, or "King of Terror" was going to invade the Middle East in July of 1999 to start the battle of Armageddon. A major TV network ran a Nostradamus special on the event, and dozens of self proclaimed Nostradamus "experts" explained their theories on this frightening prediction.
The following interpretation of this Nostradamus quatrain was published in numerous Nostradamus books far in advance of the July 1999 event:
In the year 1999 and seven months,
From the skies shall come a great and terrible King of Terror.
To raise again the great king of the Mongols,
Before and after, War shall reign at will.
The original translation of Quatrain #10-72 did not contain the words "King of Terror" or "king of the Mongols." These phrases were added later by overzealous Nostradamus fans trying to predict the battle of Armageddon in July 1999. When the month of July passed quietly, all these Nostradamus "experts" quickly blamed Nostradamus for the error. The original version of the prophecy actually translates as follows:
NOSTRADAMUS PROPHECY #10-72
In the year one thousand nine hundred ninety nine, seventh month
From the sky comes a "grand Roi deffrayeur"
To resurrect the great king of the "Angolmois".
Before and after, war reigns for a good-cause.
The meaning of the word "Angolmois" was unknown. And who was this "Grand Roi deffrayeur" who was going to arrive out of the sky in the month of July? The word "Angolmois" has no roots in any language. If you search through the world's dictionaries, you'll find only one word in any known language that is spelled A-N-G-O-L. That word is ANGOLA, a former Portugese trading colony in Africa. And the phrase "grand Roi deffrayeur" translates as "Great Leader of frightening power." The now corrected quatrain reads as follows:
PROPHECY #10-72 (corrected translation)
In the year one thousand nine hundred ninety nine, seventh month,
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf, sept mois,
From the sky will come a great Leader of frightening power
Du ceil viendra un grand Roi de-ffrayeur
To resurrect the great King of the Angol-people:
Resusiter le grand Roy d'Angol-mois:
Before and after, War reigns for a good-cause.
Avant apres, Mars regner par bon-heur.

Quatrain #10-72 was actually predicting that in July 1999, a great world leader possessing a frightening amount of power would arrive from out of the sky into a former Portugese African kingdom (Angola? Morocco?) to resurrect an African king upon his native throne. And believe it or not, on July 24th, 1999, the world's most powerful leader did in fact arrive out of the sky into the former Portugese African kingdom of Morocco to witness the resurrection of young Prince Hassan upon the throne of his deceased father, King Hassan, exactly as Nostradamus predicted. This great leader then got back into his airplane and flew off to Sarajevo to deliver a speech to a group of brave soldiers who'd just fought in a war for the good-cause (bon-heur) of preventing a genocide.
