These days, it’s hard to believe anything or anyone. For example, last week the weatherman said it was going to be sunny all day, yet lo and behold, I got caught in the middle of a storm! Not to mention, TikTok predicted that the world was going to end on July 5, 2022, and well, I'm still here and very much alive.
That said, I don't pay too much attention to predictions about the future, as they are often misleading. But what happens when a source does in fact predict a significant event in history?
Keep reading to learn all about the book Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future, which speculated a prominent death in 2022.

Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future is a book by Mario Reading. In the book, Reading relays the prophecies, written in poetic quatrains, of 16th-century French astrologer Nostradamus. These prophecies allegedly predict future events.
Nostradamus's book predicted Queen Elizabeth's death.
In the TikTok below, creator @akashiccookbook reviews Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future. She opens the book up to a chapter that reads "Succession to the U.K. Throne," with a prediction date of 2022.
The chapter reads, "The future King Charles III and his Princess Consort, the former Camilla Parker Bowles, will find themselves faced with a constitutional crisis on the death of Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II."
A few pages later it notes that the Queen would die at the age of 96.
As a refresher, Queen Elizabeth II did pass away on Sept. 8, 2022, at age 96. Nostradamus's prediction was spot-on.
