19th century:
§603. Duke of Bordeaux, his destiny off the throne (1830-1873): III-91.

III-91:
The tree that had dried to be dead for a long time,
In one night shall come to green again:
A king with a chronic illness, a prince with his leg splinted,
Afraid of enemies shall make the sail bound.


(L'arbre qu'avoit par long temps mort seché,
Dans une nuit viendra à reverdir:
Cron. roy malade, prince pied estaché
Craint d'ennemies fera voile bondir.)

Keys to the reading:
L'arbre qu'avoit par long temps mort seché: = L'arbre qui avoit seché mort par long temps, le pronom relatif « qui » se remplaçant parfois par « que » chez Nostradamus selon les usages exceptionnels du 16e siècle: « As regards the relative pronoun, the most noteworthy feature is the use of que for qui in the nominative, first as a singular, and later as a plural pronoun as well.» (Rickard, p.70); cf. celuy qu'à nul ne donne lieu (§28, IX-29); ung monarque qu'en paix & vie ne sera longuement (§490, I-4); Celui qu'aura la charge de destruire temples & sectes (§261, I-96); Le chef qu'aura conduit peuple infini (§428, I-98), et aussi II-10, III-94, V-38, VI-15, VI-19, VIII-28 et VIII-88;

Cron.: = chronique (chronic) (cf. Brind'Amour, № 8, p.453);

estaché: Estache, attache, lien, pieu poteau, pièce de bois (Godefroy);

pied estaché: a leg splinted;

prince pied estaché: the duke of Bordeaux with his leg splinted (cf. Le Pelletier, I, p.262, note 4).

Summary:
A prince with his leg splinted, Afraid of enemies shall make the sail bound to cross the Channel: «In August 1830, the duke of Angoulême was compelled, with his father Charles X, his nephew the duke of Bordeaux, now on the throne as Henry V after the double abdication of his grandfather and uncle, the mother of the ten-year-old king, duchess of Berry, and his wife Mary-Theresa, daughter of Louis XVI, to go into exile in England out of the rebel France. This time, the duke of Bordeuax is withdrawing his right of pretending to the throne, until he shall be in good fortune» (§602, IV-85). It was indeed after a very long time that he decided to do so, when the royalist movement of fusion of the Bourbons occurred in France after the instant collapse of the second empire in 1870 (= The tree that had dried to be dead for a long time, In one night shall come to green again). But, the fusion was not attained at last, and the duke of Bordeaux, then the count of Chambord, did not stripped off his destiny of remaining a king without kingdom (= a king with a chronic illness).

As to the count of Chambord, cf. §708,§709,§712,§713.
