A Celtic chief in the conflict wounded,
Seeing his subjects fall, dead near to a cave:

And helped because of strangers numbered four.

Aupres de cave voyant siens mort abatre:
De sang & playes & d’ennemis pressé,
Et secourus par incognuz de quatre.)

Keys to the reading:
A Celtic chief: = Napoleon III, 15 uses among 18 of Celte or Celtique in the Prophecies meaning French;

Near to a cave: «On the pavement of the street of Lepelletier.» «The street of Lepelletier is very narrow, and often it has been a question of enlarging it. The word cave is an extremely characteristic detail of the event, and locates the fact.» (Torné-Chavigny, 1860, p.44; p.48);

Mort: for morts;

Abatre: for s’abattre (to fall).

A Celtic chief in the conflict wounded: « Mr. Chaix d’Est-Ange, Attorney General, said, “His Majesty has not at all been attained.” Certainly the Emperor has not been attained by the bombs, but a piece of glass injured his face; every one remembers what was said in those days: “The Emperor, returning to the Tuileries, took his child in his arms. When the latter, getting sight of the blood of his father, cried: Bobo, papa (Sore papa); the father, impassible till then, melted into tears”.» (Torné-Chavigny, id.,p.48).

Seeing his subjects fall, dead near to a cave: with blood and wound and enemies pressed, and helped: «On January 14th, at half past eight in the evening, when the Emperor arrived by car at the Opera (then located in Montpensier Street), three bombs were thrown by hand next to his car and he was not attained, but in the packed crowd over 150 people were injured, eight died. It was the first attack by a chemical explosive, produced an impression of horror and exasperation.» (Seignobos, 1921a, p.275)

Because of strangers numbered four: «The police arrested four Italians, three of them were but instruments; the fourth, Orsini, was remarquable.The criminal did not ask mercy for himself; he asked freedom for his unhappy country. He did not go so far as to demand that the blood of Frenchmen should be shed for the Italians, but only that France should interdict the support of Austria by Germany. Orsini and his accomplices were condemned to death on the 26th of February. Orsini was executed on the 14th of March, with one of his accomplices.» (HH, XIII, p.132-133).

As to the case of Orsini, cf. §633(VIII-43), §634(IV-65), §644(V-8), §645(V-9).
