§ 592.Assassination of the duke of Berry

19th century:
§592. Assassination of the duke of Berry (1820) and the impasse of Charles X (1830): X-92.

X-92:
Under his father's eyes the son shall be killed,
The father then among the cordes of rush.
Genevan people shall struggle hard,
The head lying down in the heart of the events as a stem.

(Devant le pere l'enfant sera tué,
Le pere apres entre cordes de jonc,
Genevoys peuple sera esvertué,
Gisant le chief au milieu comme un tronc.)

Keys to the reading:
the cordes of rush: An assemblage of numerous slender fibers, a metaphor for the Chamber of Deputies.

Genevan people: the Parisians who will imitate a democratic regime of Geneve (Torné-Chavigny, 1861, p.233).

Summary:
Under his father's eyes the son shall be killed: «On the 13th of February, 1820, the duke de Berri [the second in succession to the crown] was assassinated by a fanatic named Louvel as he was coming from the Opera.» (HH, XIII, p.24) «The prince hearing the sobs of his desolate spouse said to her: "Dear Caroline, calm your despair, stand steady for the child you bear in your inside." These words unveiled the hope that had been only conjectured... Soon, at this scene of desolation came to gather Mister (count of Artois, father of the duke de Berri), Madam, the duke of Angouleme and the duke of Bourbon. All of them surrounded this bed of death... Already the shades of death enveloped the prince; he turned his last look at his companion whom he didn't recognize any more. "Caroline, I am dying happy, I am dying in your arms..."» (Delandine, Vie du duc de Berry, cité Torné-Chavigny, 1861, p.232)

Then, the father on the throne September 26th, 1824, named Charles X, was destined, as his brother Louis XVIII, to be caught in his reign by the Chamber of Deputies: «The new ministry was formed Jan. 4th, 1828, with Martignac as leader of the cabinet. The king had made haste to say to his new ministers, "M. de Villele's system is mine"; and the chamber made haste to write down in its address that M. de Villele's system was "deplorable." The whole history of the Restoration is epitomised on this simple juxtaposition of facts.» (HH, XIII, p.39-40).

The Parisians imitating the democracy of Geneve shall struggle hard. The head lying down in the heart of the events as a stem: «Charles X was at St. Cloud. The day the ordinances appeared (July 26th) he was stag-hunting until the evening at Rambouillet. Partly owing to an incomprehensible carelessness and partly to avoid the unpleasantness of the struggle, he had kept out of reach of the storm which had assailed his crown. He was told :"Stocks have fallen"; and replied, "They will go up again." Then they said, "Paris is in a state of anarchy." To this he answered, "Anarchy will bring her to my feet." The most faithful royalists, trying to make the king realise his position, found him incredulous. Even on the 29th, when the revolutionists, after three days' fighting, were driving the army from Paris, Charles X, six miles away, kept on repeating that every measure was being taken to suppress the insurrection.» (HH, XIII, p.47-48).

§ 593. The revolution of July

19th century:
§593. The duke of Berry assassinated (1820.2.13); The revolution of July (1830): III-96.

III-96:
The chief of Fossano shall have his throat cut,
By the conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound:
The event accomplished by those of the Tarpeian Rock,
Saturn in the Lion the 13th of February.


(Chef de Fossan aura gorge copee,
Par le ducteur du limier & levrier:
Le faict patré par ceulx du mont Tarpee,
Saturne en Leo xiij. de Fevrier.) (№2)

Keys to the reading:
Fossano: a city of Piedmont in the kingdom of Sardinia, 60 km south of Turin;

The chief of Fossano: The duke of Berry, whose parents being Charles X and Mary-Theresa of Savoy, daughter of Victor Amadeus III, king of Sardinia, may in this sense be the chief of Sardinia (Le Pelletier, 1867, p.256-257);

copee: For coupée; shall have his throat cut: «On the 13th of February, 1820, the duke de Berri was assassinated by a fanatic named Louvel as he was coming from the Opera» (§592, X-92). This expression is not a description of the deed in detail, but a paraphrase of assassination to fit it to the following verse 'conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound';

ducteur: Celui qui conduit (Godefroy). Conductor;

The conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound: A sheer hunter. This expression refers to the fact that Louvel himself had been pursuing the royal princes as vivtims of his assassination as if in chasing preys since 1814, when he saw the enemies of France in all of the Bourbons restored, which also explains his political motive of the crime. And it does not mean, as Le Pelletier (id.) and Ionescu (1976, p.352) following him intend, the profession of Louvel, because he was not a stableman (palefrenier), but a saddler (sellier). Perhaps, the bloodhound and the greyhound symbolize two daggers, a big and a small one, that Louvel had with him when he stroke the prince with the former (cf. Bellart, 1821, p.10-12);

patré: Patrer, To bring an action to its final accomplishment, to its utmost consequence (Ionescu, id.);

the Tarpeian Rock: of the ancient Roman Republic. From its top were thrown down to death the criminals of state;

Saturn in the Lion: During the revolution of July, 1830, Saturn was in the sign of Lion (Ionescu, id.): January the 1st, 137.2°; October the 29th, 150.0°;

the 13th of February: Just the day of the assassination of the duke of Berry in 1820 (Le Pelletier, id.).

Summary:
Ionescu's has accomplished the preliminary interpretation of Le Pelletier. He says that this quatrain involves four events in 1830:

«1. The Revolution of "July", which determined the abdication of Charles X.

2. The fall of Charles X, who was the last king of the Bourbons.

3. The duke of Bordeaux loses his title and goes into exile by the maneuvers of Louis-Philip of Orleans, who is allied wih the revolutionists. The duke of Bordeaux being the son of the duke of Berry, assassinated in 1820, was the only Bourbon with the right to succeed to Charles X.

4. The prince of Bourbon-Condé is himself also assassinated. He had also the right to the throne of France. Certain historians are of opinion that Louis-Philip is not foreign to this murder.

In brief, we may say that the year 1830 was the year of the Revolution of July and, at the same time, the year of the liquidation of the Bourbons in France...Le faict (the event of assassination of the duke of Berry in 1820) sera patré --- i.e. shall be brought to the finish --- par ceux du mont TARPEE --- i.e. by the Revolution of 1830. The disapperance in 1820 of one Bourbon shall be therefore continued in 1830, when all the other Bourbons shall be exterminated in turn.» (Ionscu, id.).

§ 594.The prince of Condé found hung

19th century:
§594. The last of the princes of Condé found hung (1830.8.27): I-39.

I-39:
At night in his bed a supreme person strangled,
Because of having too much supported the blond elite.
Three parties shall suffer the usurped empire,
A certified card shall put him to death, a packet being not read.


(De nuict dans lict le supresme estrangle
Pour trop avoir subjourné, blond esleu,
Par troys l'empire subroge exancle,
A mort mettra carte, pacquet ne leu.)

Keys to the reading:
suprême: Le plus élevé en valeur [the highest]. Le dernier [the last] (avec une idée de solennité ou de tragique) (Petit Robert);

A supreme person: the last male member of the family of highest rank, i.e. Louis-Henry-Joseph, the duke of Bourbon, prince of Condé (1756-1830);

subjourner: Séjourner, Lat. subdiurnare, Rester longtemps à la même place (Petit Robert):

subjourné, blond esleu: Séjourner sous le blond esleu;

the blond elite: The duke of Bordeaux, blond and king elite by the double abdication of his grandfather Charles X and his uncle Louis XIX (the duke of Angoulême) August 2nd , 1830;

subroge: metaphor of usurpé (usurped);

exancle: Lat. exanclare, to suffer, to endure;

carte: A certificate.

Summary:
« By night, in his bed, the last of the Bourbons-Condé shall be strangled, because of his having been too long loyal to the young King with blond hair, a King elect by the abdication of his parents. The power usurped by the tutor (Louis-Philip) shall be objected by three parties: the legitimists, the Bonapartists and the Republicans. A testament shall cause the death of the prince of Bourbon-Condé» (Torné-Chavigny, 1860, p.28).

Indeed, his testament, forced to make a year before by his young mistress Baroness of Feuchères engaging Louis-Philip to take her under his protection in exchange of gaining an advantageous one from the prince, left all of his properties to the next to the last of the sons of Louis-Philip, the young duke of Aumale, and several millions to Madame de Feuchères» (E. Dentu, 1861,p.9-12; p.6).

And his parcel of private manuscripts shall never been read in public. In fact, all the circumstances of his death having been evidently against the conclusion of suicide by the justice under the royal authority, the feigned papers half burned are found in the fireplace of his chamber thoroughly checked in vain in the morning, for the first time later in the evening by the secretary of the king, seemingly announcing his determination of suicide, instead of the real, authentic and undamaged documents of the prince containing naturally his explanations of pretended "suicide" (E. Dentu, id.,p.19-20).

§ 595.Death of Bourbon-Condé

19th century:
§595. Revolution of July; Death of Bourbon-Condé (July-August 1830): I-41.

I-41:
A siege in a city, and by night assaulted,
Few escaped; not far from the sea being the conflict.
A lady of pleasure, returning of the memories of his late son.
A poison and letters hidden in the hearth.


(Siege en cité, & de nuict assaillie,
Peu eschapes: non loing de mer conflict.
Femme de joye, retours filz defaillie
Poison & lettres cachées dans le plic.)

Keys to the reading:
A siege in a city: The three days' fighting in Paris (July 27th-29th, 1830);

by night: In the sense of clandestinely (Ionescu, 1976, p.622). In fact, in the Prophecies of Nostradamus we find 37 uses of the word night (nuict), whose 21 being in the proper, 8 in the sense of clandestinely (I-41, IV-8, IV-78, IV-93, V-83, VI-53, VII-2 and IX-13) and 8 in the ambivalence;

conflict: that between Charles X and Louis-Philip;

his late son: The duke of Enghien assassinated by the order of Napoleon in 1804;

A poison and letters: «The letters containing the dishonoring avowal (poison) of one's suicide» = poyson & lettres (§624, VIII-82) (Torné-Chavigny, 1861, p.270);

plic: The anagram of lict (licp ⇒lict ⇒lit) = foyer (hearth) (cf. id.).

Summary:
«Nightfall interrupted the fighting. Nothing disturbed the silent solemnity of that terrible night but the footsteps of the troops as they evacuated the town in order to mass themselves round the Tuileries. On the morning of the 29th, fighting began again. On the right bank, the people had only to get possession of the vast enclosure of the palace formed by the Louvre and the Tuileries. Since the day before they had been besieging the front of the Louvre before St. Germain l'Auxerrois [a siege in a city]. The Swiss, posted in the colonnade, directed a murderous fire on the assailants. A blunder, made while changing the battalion posted there, left the colonnade unprotected; in an instant the people stormed the entrance and broke in through the windows, firing from those which looked on to the courtyard. The Swiss, taken by surprise [by night assaulted], were seized with a panic, the officers were unable to restore order, and they were chased by the people as far as the place de la Concorde. The crowd then for the second time made their way into the conquered palace.» (HH, XIII, p.47). The Swiss troops belonging to the king suffered mortal defeat, few of them escaping (id.).

«The duke [of Orleans] found himself in a difficult position between the revolutionists who had offered him a throne, and Charles X, to whom he owed so much ! Very opportunely, owing to an alarm raised in Paris, on the 3rd of August a little band of Parisians marched on Rambouillet. At the same time the duke of Orleans sent Marshal Maison, Schonen, and Odilon Barrot to Rambouillet. He had given the Parisians to understand that Charles X mignt prove dangerous, and he warned Charles X that sixty thousand Parisians were marching against him, and that he had better provide for his safety. Thus he got rid of the old king [being the conflict]. Charles X and his family were accompanied as far as Cherbourg [not far from the sea] by his cousin's three envoys. Thence he went into exile where the elder branch of the Bourbons was to die out.» (HH, XIII, p.49-50).

And later in August, « a testament shall cause the death of the prince of Bourbon-Condé» (Torné-Chavigny, 1860, p.28). Indeed, his testament, forced to make a year before by his young mistress Baroness of Feuchères [a lady of pleasure] engaging Louis-Philip to take her under his protection in exchange of gaining an advantageous one from the prince, left all of his properties to the young duke of Aumale, and several millions to Madame de Feuchères» (E. Dentu, 1861,p.9-12; p.6).

And his parcel of private manuscripts shall never been read in public. In fact, all the circumstances of his death having been evidently against the conclusion of suicide by the justice under the royal authority, the feigned papers half burned and broken in pieces are found in the fireplace [hidden in the hearth] of his chamber thoroughly checked in vain in the morning, for the first time later in the evening by the secretary of the king.

They read as follows: «Saint-Leu and its dependencies belong to your King Philip. Do not pillage nor burn the castle nor the village. Do not do a wrong to anyone of my friends and my people. You are off my intention. I have to die only in hoping happiness and prosperity for the French people and for my fatherland. Farewell forever. L.-H.-J. DE BOURBON, PRINCE DE CONDÉ. P.S. I wish to be buried at Vincennes, by my unfortunate son.» (E. Dentu, id.,p.19).
