§738 A princely couple assassinated; the Great War unlatched (1914.6.28): IX-10.

IX-10 (§738):

A monk and a nun exposed to death by a child,
Shall die in Servo, bereft of their lives by a glassware.
Foix and Pamiers shall set up the camp
Against Toulouse and Carcassonne, dispersing cavalries.

(Moyne moynesse d'enfant mort exposé,
Mourir par ourse & ravy par verrier.
Par Fois & Pamyes le camp sera posé
Contre Tholose Carcas dresser forrier.

NOTES: Monk : « Moyne (Monk). – This word has the same root as the word monarque (monarch), μόνος (alone, solitary, only), and Nostradamus by the phrase: MOYNE MOYNESSE designates a monarch and his spouse.» (Torné-Chavigny, 1861, p.51). In fact, of 7 usages in all of the word moine, moyne or moynesse in the Prophecies of Nostradamus, only 3 (I-44, VI-60 and VI-73) are in a proper sense and 4 (I-95, IX-10bis and IX-20) are figuratif in the sense of ‘monarchical or princely’.

A monk and a nun: = deux heron (§737, X-63). Torné-Chavigny’s comment that in this quatrain « a monk and a nun designate a monarch and his spouse » is most probable because its second hemistich predicts a military confrontation of the antagonistic camps. And the situation of this royal couple that they are firstly imperiled by a child and secondly bereft of their lives leads us to the historical scene of a tragedy of the assassination of archduke of Austria Francis Ferdinand and his wife Sophie at Sarajevo (Serajévo) on June 28th, 1914, and in this context the ordinary term « ourse » (she-bear) may particularly suggest, as an anagrammatic enigma, « Serajévo (Sarajevo) » via « ourse » → « seruo » → « servo ».

Mort exposé
(Death exposed): = à mort exposé (to death exposed), the preposition à (to) being eliminated for the sake of prophetic tangling.
Cf. « Cueur, vigueur, gloire le regne changera.» (III-15, §323) ↔ « Le regne changera de cueur, de vigueur et de gloire.»; « son oncle, qui ses enfans par regner trucidez» (VIII-89, §324) ↔ « son oncle [= Louis XIV], pour qui ses enfans par regner [= ses dauphins] [seront] trucidez [par la maladie]»; « Quand Rod.& Gennes leur faudra le biscuit.» (II-3, §99) ↔ « Quand pour Rod. & Gennes [il] leur faudra le biscuit.»

Par ourse
: = par servo (at or in Servo [Serajévo]). 

Verrier: « adj. Glass. – m. Glass-blower, glass-maker; glass-basket (or) –rack (or) -stand» (Dubois). 

Par verrier
: = by car, verrier (glassware) representing in this case the windshield of glass of the princely vehicle (cf. The exhibits of the Museum of Military History (Heeresgeschichtliches Museum) in Vienna).

A monk and a nun exposed to death by a child, Shall die in Servo and bereft of their lives by a glassware
: « When the princely couple [A monk and a nun] passed the streets of Serajévo (Sarajevo) [in Servo] by car [by a glassware], a young Bosnian [a child] named Gabrinovitch (Cabrinovitch) [1895-1916], a typographer, threw at the car a bomb that did not attain its occupants [exposed to death], but injured some persons of the suite. Notwithstanding this warning, the Archduke continued his visit, while the police, reprimanded severly by him, did not take special precautions. A few moments later, a Bosnian student, Gavrilo Princip [1894-1918], fired at the Archduke and his wife two shots of revolver which caused their nearly immediate death [Shall die in Servo and bereft of their lives by a glassware].»
(Gauvain, 1922, p.2).

Forrier: = a dispersed cavalry. « forrier, s.m., fourrageur; fig., avant-coureur.» 
(Godefroy); « fourrageur n.m., Forager, dispersed cavalier.» (Suzuki).

Foix and Pamiers shall set up the camp Against Toulouse and Carcassonne, dispersing cavalries: If we are on the way to the truth, the confrontation of the camp of Foix and Pamiers against that of Toulouse and Carcassonne merely symbolizes the world-wide conflict called the Great War between the Allies (Ententes) and the Central Powers (Alliances) but locally germinated, the camp of Foix and Pamiers, sparsely populated regions, referring to the latter and that of Toulouse and Carcassonne, with large populations, to the former (cf. Middleton and Heater, 1989, Unit 6-3 Europe: Alliances and Ententes;
Ploetz, 1998, p.715); « World War I. The immediate cause of the War was the spread of nationalism in the Balkans, as shown by the assassination at Sarajevo and the determination of the Austrians to destroy the Serbian ‘hornets’ nest’ The reasons why this conflict could not be localized lie further back. Among them was the division of Europe into rival camps [the camp ... against ...] by a system of alliances, originally defensive in character but made dangerous through a lessening of international trust by successive crises – Morocco in 1905, Bosnia in 1908-9, Agadir in 1911. Anglo-German relations had worsened because of naval rivalry and, to a much lesser extent, trade competition.» (Palmer, p.305).

The list of populations of the cities quoted and the belligerent countries:
« Foix: 4,960; Pamiers: 6,245; Toulouse: 59, 630; Carcassonne: 15,752 (as of c.1830):» (MacCarthy). 
« Austria-Hungary: 50,000,000; Germany: 65,000,000; Turkey: 27,000,000; Bulgaria: 4,250,000; Serbia: 3,000,000; Russia: 170,000,000; France: 39,500,000; Britain: 45,000,000; Montenegro: 500,000; Italy: 34,500,000; Portugal: 5,500,000; Romania: 7,000,000; Greece: 3,000,000 (as of 1910).» (MacEvedy, 1982, p.43).
« Japan: 52,000,000; USA: 94,000,000; China: 325,000,000 (as of 1911)» (Williams, 1968, p.437).

Comparison of totals:
Foix + Pamiers = 11,205.
Toulouse + Carcassonne = 75,382.
75382/11205 = 6.7
The Central Powers (Austria-Hungary + Germany + Turkey + Bulgaria) = 146,250,000.
The Allies (Serbia + Russia + France + Britain + Montenegro + Italy + Portugal + Romania + Belgium + Greece + Japan + USA + China) = 779,000,000.
779000000/146250000 = 5.3

The analogical usage of place-names of this sort is seen also in the quatrain III-62 (§507) as to Tyrrene.
