§754 Ex-Tsarina Alexandra ruthlessly executed; The sensible also victims to the Bolsheviks (1917-1921): VI-72.

VI-72 (§754):

By the feigned fury of divine emotion,
Shall the wife of the great be harshly violated:
The sensible intending to condemn such a doctrine,
Immolated victims to the ignorant people.

(Par fureur faincte d'esmotion divine,
Sera la femme du grand fort violee:
Juges voulans damner telle doctrine,
Victime au peuple ignorant imolee.)

NOTES: By the feigned fury of divine emotion, Shall the wife of the great be harshly violated: « ... ‘the presidium of the Ural Regional Soviet has sentenced you to be shot ...’ The Tsar registered blank incomprehension; turning his back to Yurovsky to face his family, he managed an incredulous stutter – ‘What? What?’ – as those around him were rooted to the spot in absolute terror. ‘So you’re not taking us anywhere?’ ventured Botkin, unable also to comprehend what had just been said. ‘I don’t understand. Read it again ...’ the Tsar interrupted, his face white with horror. Yurovsky picked up where he had left off: ‘... in view of the fact that the Czechoslovaks are threatening the red capital of the Urals – Ekaterinburg – and in view of the fact that the crowned executioner might escape the people’s court, the presidium of the Regional Soviet, fulfilling the will of the Revolution [By the feigned fury of divine emotion], has decreed that the former Tsar Nicholas Romanov [the great], guilty of countless bloody crimes against the people, should be shot ...’ Instinctively, the Tsaritsa and Olga crossed themselves; a few incoherent words of shock or protest heard from the rest. Yurovsky, having finished reading the decree, pulled out his Colt, stepped forward and shot the Tsar at the point-blank range in the chest... But at least Nicholas was spared the sight of seeing what happened to his wife [the wife of the great] and family. For in that moment, Ermakov had turned and fired his Mauser at the Tsaritsa only six feet away from him as she tried to make the sign of the cross, hitting her in the left side of the skull, spraying brain tissue all around, as a hail of bullets from the other assassins hit her torso. Alexandra crumpled sideways on to the floor, her warm, sticky blood and brain tissue spreading across it in a mist of steam [Shall the wife of the great be harshly violated]. Next to her, poor lame Alexey,... » (Rappaport, 2008, p.188-189).

The great
[le grand]: = Nicholas II. In fact, 45 of the 47 cases in all of the word ‘grand (great)’ as a singular noun with or without a definite or indefinite article (le grand [the great], un grand [a great] or grand [great]) in the Prophecies of Nostradamus designate a particular person or deity of importance in history or mythology as follows: Napoleon Bonaparte (II-24, II-58, II-85, III-10, III-53, V-2, VIII-62), François of Lorraine, second Duke of Guise (V-1, V-28, VII-29), Constable Anne de Montmorency (II-82, IV-34), Charles II of Lorraine, Duke of Mayenne (I-85, II-55), Napoleon III (II-26, VIII-11), Hitler (III-58, VII-24), Mussolini (VI-6, VI-52), Emperor of Japan Hirohito (VI-80, VI-90), Pluto or Hades (I-84), Dragut (V-23), Bey of Tunis (VIII-50, 1573), Charles of Guise, Cardinal of Lorraine (VII-17), Charles X (IV-84), Henry III of France (III-55), Louis XIV (X-94), Louis XVI (VIII-24), Pius VI (II-63), Duke of Wellington (VIII-1), Eugène Beauharnais (V-61), Algerian dey Hussein (V-69), Sultan Mahmed II (IX-62), Camillo Cavour (VIII-33), Pius IX (V-22), Bismarck (VI-40), Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria (I-26), Nicholas II (VI-72), William II of Germany (IV-13), Francisco Franco (VIII-26), President Truman (V-83), SCAP General MacArthur (II-92), Nocholae Ceausescu (II-57). In the remaining two cases (II-2 and X-20), the word ‘grand (great)’ as a singular noun means respectively ‘a great hung on the branch (grand pendu sus la branche, i.e. a large blade of a guillotine)’ and ‘a great annihilated (grand neanty, i.e. a great of valuables reduced to nothing)’.

By the way, there are three cases of the word ‘grand’ as an adjective with a noun in ellipsis in the context as follows: VI-91: Quant il naistra du grand un filz Agrippe (a son of Agrippina = Nero) (When Nero shall be born from the great [Nero]), IX-19: Le grand bastard yssu du gran du Maine (The great bastard issuing from the great [bastard] of Maine) and X-53: La plus grand [pellice = pelisse] (the greatest pelisse]. And there are one case of the word ‘grand’ as an adverb as follows: II-66: Peu de temps grand la fortune changée (Before long the fortune greatly changed).

Finally, as to the plural form: ‘les plus grands (the greaters)’ of the word ‘grand’, its 7 cases in all are similarly designating particular persons of importance in history as follows: IV-47 (the important Huguenots killed in St. Bartholomew in 1572), VIII-41 (the Girondists executed by Robespierre), IX-3 (the French, the Austrians and the Neapolitans against Roman Revolution in 1848-1849), VII-8 (the leaders of Tuscany against the translation of the Italian capital from Florence to Rome in 1871), X-57 (the Orleanists against the Restoration of Prince Chambord in 1873), III-54 (Spanish royalist generals against the Popular Front) and IV-68 (Hitler and Mussolini).

The wife
[la femme]: = The wife of Nicholas II, Alexandra. In fact, the word ‘femme (woman)’ in the Prophecies of Nostradamus always refers to a particular woman or wife, to a particular group of women or a womanly generic character as follos: IX-52 (the French women in the age of wars of religion), IV-52 (the women of Calais besieged by the French in 1558), IV-57 (Margaret of Valois, wife of Henry of Navarre, whose love for her having perished in favour of his new mistress Mme. de Sauve), X-35 (womanly generic characteristics), VIII-13 (Catherine de Medici), X-9 (Marie Antoinette), VIII-63 (Josephine Beauharnais, first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte), I-88, IV-54 and VIII-63 (Marie-Louise of Austria, second wife of Napoleon I), I-41 (Sophie Dawes, Baroness of Feuchères, a young mistress of Louis Henry II, Prince of Condé in 1830) and VI-72 (Tsarina Alexandra, wife of Nicholas II).

Therefore, the interpretation of the phrase: ‘la femme du grand (the wife of the great)’ as ‘the mass of lower people (la femme) of the great tzarist empire (du grand)’ by Vlaicu Ionescu (1976, p.427) is hardly recommended. In fact, in order to represent a great empire or state, Nostradamus prefers the explicit expression: ‘le grand Empire/empire (the great Empire/empire)’ (e.g., I-32, VI-67 and X-87 for the first French Empire; V-45 and V-95 for the Holy Roman Empire; III-97 for the Ottoman Empire; X-100 for the British Empire; X-32 for the third French Republic).

: « The catalogue of Romanov murders did not end at Ekaterinburg. The big Moscow meeting in early July had taken account of the fate not only of the Imerial Family, but also of their closest relatives, as part of the systematic destruction of the dynasty. Only one day after the murders at Ipatiev House, on the night of 18/19 July, 90 miles away at Alapaevsk, Alexandra’s sister Ella, her companion Sister Barbara and the five Romanov Grand Dukes and Princes being held with them suffered an even more horrific death at the hands of the ruthless Urals Cheka. That night, men came for the prisoners at the schoolhouse where they were being held, took them by cart out into the nearby forest under cover of darkness and made them walk to the mouth of a disused mine. Here, the victims were beaten about the head with rifle butts and then one by one hurled down into the waterlogged pit. Only Grand Duke Sergey, who had struggled at the surface and been shot in the head, died quickly. Grand Duchess Ella and her companions were left to die a slow, agonising death from a combination of traumatic injury, thirst and starvation. But at least their bodies were found – only three months later. Across Russia as a whole, the murder of the Romanovs marked the beginning of an orgy of terror, murder and bloody reprisal that would caracterise the savage Russian civil war – a war which would claim 13 million lives. The signal to crank up repressive measures against counter-revolutionary activity came in August, first with the murder of the head of the Petrograd Cheka, Moisey Uritsky, and then with a failed assassination attempt at Lenin on the 30th. The rapidly expanding Cheka was now given free rein for acts of revenge; whole families of hostages, such as the wives and children of Red Army officers who went over to the Whites, were imprisoned in prototype concentration camps (created that autumn) and many were murdered. From now on the sons would be held accountable for the political sins of their fathers. Such acts of retribution escalated during the civil war and became endemic under Stalin. The cold-blooded murder of the Romanov children and with it an attempt at the systematic liquidation of the entire dynasty had been the ultimate litmus test of the amorality of Bolshevik policy [such a doctrine].» (Rappaport, id., p.213).
