Mabus on Memory Alpha

Mabus is a name given only once in the works of Nostradamus, in Century II, Quatrain 62. Mabus is often considered to be a predecessor to a third antichrist, a subject of Nostradamus in popular culture. The most recent and continuing interpretation of "Mabus" is that of ObaMA BUSh, the final two kings of what was left of French monarchy preceding the Second Coming of Jesus Christ which occurred on December 30, 2018 A.D., the beginning of the "age to come" foretold by Jesus in Mark 10:30.

Century IIEdit

« Nostradamus Century II, Quatrain 62:
MABUS then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will run. »
English translation from, Nostradamus, Century II


Kabbalistic permutations of the name Mabus:

  • M-A-B-U-S
  • A-B-U-S-M
  • B-U-S-M-A
  • U-S-M-A-B
  • S-M-A-B-U


Some have interpreted the writings of Nostradamus as predicting a series of three antichrists. However, skeptics dismiss the name "Mabus" as a synonym to an incarnate antichrist. The verse in question (II.62) says that Mabus will die, but says nothing about the appearance or actions of "Mabus." Under this interpretation, the death of Mabus is a historical marker.

Recent attempts have linked the name "Mabus" to "Obama" looking at it as an anagram, as was previously done with "Saddam", "Osama" and "Bush". The tendency to try to adapt the quatrains to recent events can be traced back to the time of Nostradamus himself.[1]


  • At the time of Nostradamus, the Flemish painter Jan Gossaert signed "MABUSE" in his works.
  • Mabus Point is a cape on the Antarctic coast.
