Nostradamus: On a Qutrain with the Devil
 
26:50
Nostradamus died over five hundred years ago, but his prophecies have lasted throughout the centuries. Some believe he predicted 9/11 and Adolf Hitler’s rise before WWII — among so many other prominent events around the world. There are even those among the Christian and New Age Movement today that liken him to a prophet. But are his prophecies true? How did he receive this gift of foretelling future events? Who helped him go from writing small-town Almanacs predicting weather, crops, and writing predictive satires about Kings and Queens, to becoming the personal seer of the Queen of France, Catherine de’ Medici? Find out in this intriguing documentary produced by the Black Banners of the East - Exposing the False Prophet… Nostradamus.

The shortest, yet hardest video to make. I am so glad its done and over with. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Bartholomew%27s_Day_massacre Henry of Navarre was later reported to have said of Catherine: I ask you, what could a woman do, left by the death of her husband with five little children on her arms, and two families of France who were thinking of grasping the crown—our own [the Bourbons] and the Guises? Was she not compelled to play strange parts to deceive first one and then the other, in order to guard, as she did, her sons, who successively reigned through the wise conduct of that shrewd woman? I am surprised that she never did worse. The St. Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572 was a targeted group of assassinations and a wave of Catholic mob violence, directed against the Huguenots during the French Wars of Religion. Traditionally believed to have been instigated by Queen Catherine de' Medici, the mother of King Charles IX, the massacre took place a few days after the wedding day of the king's sister Margaret to the Protestant Henry III of Navarre.

11 Most Haunted Locations in France
 
07:49
From grand mausoleums in the middle of paris, to chateau that attract millions of people a year, here the 11 most haunted locations in France Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 11. Chambord The most well-known and debatably the most amazing chateau in the Loire River Valley is the Château de Chambord. It displays distinct French renaissance architecture and when construction began 1519, it was built specifically to act as the hunting lodge of Francois I. Francois spared no expense in having this one completed, and some believe that Leonardo Da Vinci was even involved in the design. The primary architect was Domenico da Cortona from Italy, who also helped design the Hotel de Ville in Paris. The northwestern facade of this iconic building is quite imposing and it displays nearly perfect symmetry. This could certainly be most impressive building constructed under the impactful rule of Francois I. However later on, the house in turned into an improptu hospital during the franco prussian war. People claim to see the ghosts while taking a tour. 10. The Pantheon Paris This tourist attraction in the Latin Quarter of Paris contains the crypts of some France’s most notable characters, especially during the French Revolution. Some claim the architecture of this monument is completely flawless! It was originally built as a church but displays Neoclassical architecture, which was inspired b y ancient Roman architecture. This mausoleum houses over 100 remains or prominent. Famous residents include Voltaire, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Louis Braille and Marie Curie. For a long period of time, no women were placed here. Until Marcellin Berthelot, was married with his wife Sophie. Another sort of eery thin g about this place is the fact that some the urns here don’t contain ashes, only remains of people’s hearts. Strange but true. 9. Tuileries Garden This public garden is located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in Paris. It was created in 1564 though didn't open until 1667 due to many mysterious circumstances. And rumour has it that this place is home to one of the spookiest ghosts in all of France, his name is l’homme rouge des tuileries, though many refer to him as the Red Man of the Tuileries. The stories say he was a butcher murdered on the orders of Catherine de Medici for the crime of knowing too much about the private affairs of the crown, his death knell sounded when he stupidly proclaimed to an astrologer that he knew the exact date and time when the queen of France would leave this world. Legend has it that his appearances foreshadow dramatic, often sinister moments in the nation's history, such as right before the palace fire of 1871. 8. Le Mont Saint Michel This island commune located in Normandy France can be found around half a mile off the country's northwestern coast and rumour has it, is devastatingly haunted by a multitude of unruly, restless spirits. On one of the bloodier days in its history, a tremendous battle from the hundred years' war took place on these surrounding island beaches. It is here that the infamous captain Louis d'Estouteville led his platoon in to slaughter over two thousand Englishman. As the tides rose to cover those sandy shores, the waters were stained with the red blood which covered the cold beach, the ghosts of those soldiers as well as the spirits of many monks who once lived and later died here, and even the famous captain himself are all rumoured to now haunt this creepy island. 7. Dome Des Invalides In addition to the Pantheon, and Pere Lachaise cemetery, which we mentioned in one of our haunted places to avoid videos, the tomb of the former French Emperor Napoleon is quite impressive. It seems almost too big for this infamously short guy. Located at the Hotel des Invalides, the dome his remains are under was actually originally built as a royal chapel that took nearly 30 years to construct. After the Revolution, the French turned the area into a hospital for injured soldiers. An immense excavation took place underneath after Napoleon’s remains were returned from St. Helena island in 1821. Eight of his greatest battle victories are inscribed in the marble beneath him. His sarcophagus contains allegedly 6 different, caskets and each one is made of different material. This includes ebony, oak, and tin. It’s still a mystery exactly what’s inside the large tomb.

Documentary Films: Getting to Know the Real Catherine the Great
 
47:16
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Documentary Films: Getting to Know the Real Catherine the Great Empress Catherine II of Russia (1729-86), commonly known as Catherine the Great, was one of Russia's greatest and most energetic rulers. Following in the footsteps of her predecessor Peter I (Peter the Great), she pursued the Westernization and territorial expansion of Russia. Born into a German royal family, she married the heir to the Russian throne, the future Peter III. As an intelligent and energetic woman, she wanted to be accepted into her adopted land of Russia and so learned its history and language. After Peter III became an unpopular ruler, was forced to abdicate and a few days later was murdered, Catherine became the ruler (Empress) of Russia. In 1767 Catherine issued a famous edict known as the "Instruction" in which she advocated social and economic reforms. However, she also insisted in it that Russia's vast territory needed a strong central government and that she as Empress should, therefore, have absolute power. As she stated in the "Instruction": "The sovereign is absolute; for, in a state whose expanse is so vast, there can be no other appropriate authority except that which is concentrated in him." She further stated in the "Instruction" that "the landlords' serfs and peasants... owe their landlords proper submission and absolute obedience in all matters, according to the laws that have been enacted from time immemorial by the autocratic forefathers of Her Imperial Majesty... and which provide that all persons who dare to incite serfs and peasants to disobey their landlords shall be arrested and... punished forthwith as disturbers of the public tranquillity, according to the laws and without leniency." (A Source Book for Russian History, G. Vernadsky, trans. (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1972). In her court at St. Petersburg, she promoted the culture and ideas of Western European countries, such as France, England and Italy. She patronized Italian opera and fine arts, French literature, philosophy and etiquette, and English ideas. She built sumptuous palaces and other buildings in her capital, St Petersburg, mostly designed by foreign architects that she admired. One of these buildings, the Hermitage, was built to house her collection of magnificent European art treasures and it survives to this day as one of the world's greatest art museums. She corresponded with French writers and Enlightenment philosophers (philosophes), such as Voltaire. She attempted to be, like Frederick the Great of Prussia, an "enlightened despot", and to bring in social reforms inspired by Locke, Montesquieu and Beccaria. She drew up of a new legal code, built schools (though these were to be mostly for the children of the aristocracy), constructed hospitals, promoted women's education, and introduced smallpox vaccination. She encouraged Russian trade, industry and the exploitation of the country's natural resources in order to increase the country's wealth.

Epcot Impressions De France in 4k
 
19:30
This is the 18 minute film that has been shown at the France Pavilion at Epcot since opening day in 1982. It is shown every half hour until park closing in the Palais du Cinema. The movie is projected onto five adjacent screens, giving 200° coverage. In my opinion, even after 36 years 'Impressions De France' is still one of the highlights at Epcot as it is a perfect marriage of images and music. Although certain aspects are dated this does not matter. Does one dismiss a work of art simply because it does not reflect current styles or fashions? No, of course not. This is a classic film which I hope will play at the French Pavilion forever, it is a wonderful snapshot of what France once was and I doubt whether it could or would be made today. For me it is now the only thing at Epcot that is guaranteed to bring joy to my heart and I know that many others have a love for it that is unmatched by anything else at Walt Disney World's second park. I tried to keep the camera as steady as I could without using a tripod, the video is shot in 4k at 24fps to match the film. I was sat in the back row of the cinema during the last showing, whilst it was fairly empty unfortunately a couple of heads do intrude into the frame somewhat. I hope that this does not interfere too much with the enjoyment of the film. I do not pan the camera at all but keep it locked onto the middle screen with part of each of the screens either side. With this wide angle view I manage to capture just under half of what a person in the Palais du Cinema can see. Here is the list of the scenes from an official list, one day I would like to visit them all: 1 The cliffs at Étretat in Normandy. 2 Gliding through the Marais Poitevin, a swamp area near La Rochelle. 3 Château de Chenonceau; in the Loire Valley, then from the gardens. 4 Horsemen and hunting dogs cross the Cheverny Forest. 5 Aerial shot of Château de Chambord. 6 We fly over the red rooftops up to the bell tower of the church in the Vézelay village. 7 Vezelay Church interior, with church bells in the background. 8 In the horse cart we ride through Riquewihr Village near Germany. 9 Moving through the market place in Beuvron-en-Auge, Normandy. 10 French pastries. 11 Wine harvest at the Monbazillac Vineyard. 12 Interior of a Cognac cave. 13 The Fountain of Apollo at Versailles. 14 The Palace of Versailles Garden. 15 The Versailles building and the Hall of Mirrors. 16 Flying over Castle Beynac in the Dordogne Valley. 17 Man chopping wood with Chateau Montpoupon. 18 La Roque - Gageac in the Dordogne Valley (bicyclists). 19 Chateau Montpoupon, bicyclists racing toward us. 20 Bugatti race cars in Cannes. 21 Hot air balloons take off near Chaumont Castle on the Loire river. 22 Hot air balloons in front of the cliff city of Rocamadour. 23 French Alps in the spring. 24 Mountain climbers on rocky peaks in Chamonix. (French Alps) 25 Skiers in Chamonix. 26 La Rochelle Harbor. 27 On board a Brittany fishing boat at sea. 28 A rocky beach in Normandy. 29 Mont Saint-Michel. 30 Interior of Notre-Dame-de-Penhors church in Pouldreuzic, Brittany. 31 Wedding reception in full swing at a Brittany farm to traditional Brittany folk music. 32 Couple walks along the cliffs of Normandy in Étretat. 33 The cliff city of Bonifacio, Corsica. 34 Villefranche near Nice. 35 Calanque cliffs near Cassis. 36 Pier in front of the Carlton Hotel in Cannes. 37 Cannes Harbor at twilight. 38 Racing along railway tracks in the small Lozère town of Chapeauroux next to the Allier River. 39 Gare du Nord (North rail station) in Paris. 40 Champs-Élysées at twilight featuring the Arc de Triomphe. 41 Seine River in Paris. 42 Notre Dame de Paris. 43 Through the archways at the Louvre, the Republican Guard 44 Eiffel Tower. 45 Aerial shot of Étretat Cliffs. 46 Aerial shot of the Pyrenées of Cirque de Gavarnie 47 Aerial shot of Château de Chambord. 48 Aerial shot of French Alps near Mont Blanc. 49 Finale - Eiffel Tower.

Brian Sewell in Florence & the Last of the Medici.
 
39:22
In episode 3 of his Grand Tour, Brian Sewell visits Florence. Includes the 'Last of the Medici' scene. Warning: This video contains personal opinions, do not watch it if you are afraid of hearing something that you might not like! For a purely practical Florence guide visit Rick Steves guide instead at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzDnJi-JeNI However, if you like a highly-opinionated, very critical art/travel guide by an extremely plummy & witty white haired elderly Englishman then watch this instead. Brian Sewell writes for the London Evening Standard and is noted for artistic conservatism and his acerbic view of the Turner Prize and conceptual art. Sewell has been described as "Britain's most famous and controversial art critic." Brian worked at Christie's auction house, specialising in Old Master paintings and drawings. The full ten part series is available to buy on DVD as 'Brian Sewell's Grand Tour' in the UK or 'Brian Sewell's Grand Tour of Italy' in the United States. A wonderful description of Brian from The Guardian's post-filming interview: "An old primrose Mercedes stops on a snowy bend and from its leathery recesses emerges a man with white hair and small, beady eyes, a soft blanket pulled tight around his shoulders against the cold. The man begins to speak, his voice improbably delicate; he sounds like a dowager duchess carefully recalling a large turd she was once mistakenly served during tea at Claridge's." From the same interview: "On the last day of filming, one of the crew looked him straight in the eye and said: 'We all think it's been absolute hell working with you', a compliment that Sewell simply batted back. He is, rather disingenuously, I would say, highly indignant at what he has learned of television. 'I was promised that it would be my programme. That it would be all my research. I set down my criteria. "Yes, yes, yes," they said. "You can have all that." But my researches were buggered up by some 22-year-old with a degree from Nottingham. The nitwit had no idea. He didn't know if we were in the 18th or the 19th century and had me, as it were, chasing after Browning and the phenomenon of Chiantishire. I think simply this: they [TV people] are fundamentally unserious. They know nothing. They see things only in their own petty, boxed-in terms, and they cannot understand it when they have a presenter who has no vanity.' In particular, he hated the way he was expected to come up with pictures. If he mentioned a duel, swordsmen would be booked; if he mentioned dancing, music would be arranged. He found all this ridiculous, as you can see in one scene when a young 'nobleman' and his lady can be seen prancing around to, bizarrely, the sound of a hurdy-gurdy. For a while, Sewell watches, poker-faced. Then, unable to contain himself any longer, he explodes with laughter. It is to their credit that the people at Five have kept the laughter in. 'It's moronic,' he says. 'Moronic. The day-by-day tedium of it. Nine weeks. What hell. " Despite Brian's suffering, I rather enjoyed the series. Which by the way, was filmed in reverse, starting in Venice. What a treasure he is. The full interview can be read here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2005/nov/13/art

Château de Chaumont - Loire Valley- France 4K by Drone
 
03:21
The Château de Chaumont (or Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire) is a castle in Chaumont-sur-Loire, Loir-et-Cher, France. The castle was founded in the 10th century by Odo I, Count of Blois. Passed to the Norman knight Gelduin (or Hilduin), that consolidated all the fortifications. His great-granddaughter, Denise de Fougère, it came as a dowry to her husband Sulpice d'Amboise and the castle passed into the hands of Amboise family for five centuries. After Pierre d'Amboise rebelled against Louis XI, the king ordered the castle's destruction. Later in the 15th century Château de Chaumont was rebuilt by Charles I d'Amboise. Protected as a monument historique since 1840, the château was given into state ownership in 1938 and is now open to the public.

Dundrennan Abbey - 12th century Cistercian monastery, Scotland
 
03:05
Royalty Free Music from Bensound.com Dundrennan Abbey, in Dundrennan, Scotland, near to Kirkcudbright, was a Cistercian monastery in the Romanesque architectural style, established in 1142 by Fergus of Galloway, King David I of Scotland (1124–53), and monks from Rievaulx Abbey. Though extensively ruined (the transepts are the main surviving parts), Dundrennan is noted for the purity and restraint of its architecture, reflecting the austere Cistercian ideal. It is also built from very hard-weathering grey sandstone, so the original architectural forms and mouldings are well preserved. Mary, Queen of Scots, after the Battle of Langside, spent her final night in Scotland here, in 1568. From neighbouring Port Mary, she crossed the Solway Firth to Workington, and shortly after was imprisoned by the English.

La Hougue Bie Jersey Heritage Visit Jersey
 
03:54
La Hougue Bie Jersey Heritage Visit Jersey Hougue is derived from an Old Norse word meaning mound, and seems apt to describe the man-made hill rising from the earth. As with most Neolithic sites, the details surrounding its use are unclear. However, archeological work in the area has discovered that the site was likely used for ceremonies, and some ancient burials.Although it was not used primarily for burials, the site is one of the most well-preserved passage graves in the world. Passage graves were constructed out of giant stones forming a crawl space through a mound of earth. They are found extensively through Europe, but are not usually as well-preserved as La Hougue Bie.The passage grave is similarly fascinating in that it is oriented to receive the sun’s rays and illuminate the farthest recesses of the chamber on the solstice. A few vases were also found in the passage, but without any more information to better understand how it was used and by whom, the 62-foot passage remains a great mystery.With the addition of the two chapels in the medieval period on top of the mound, the site walks visitors through the history of spirituality in Western Europe, and is a fantastic example of pagan sites co-opted by later Christianity.In the Chapel you can see the faded image of fresco paintings of angels over the alter, these were believed to have been painted in the 14th century, unfortunately they were over painted by the victorians in the 19th century. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTxqMJkGKPq6opHzNAVOi9w?sub_confirmation=1 Create Your Free Website - on https://goo.gl/icUWWd Post Free Ads: https://goo.gl/3eRpAc https://goo.gl/iEb9lM https://goo.gl/VubkqA International Classifieds https://goo.gl/wZWWfc https://goo.gl/y3IEEJ https://goo.gl/OjQNJG

Assassination of Henry the Fourth of France (May 14, 1610)

He was the first monarch of France from the House of Bourbon, another branch of the Capetian dynasty (through Louis IX, as the previous House of Valois had been through Philip II). He was assassinated in 1610 by François Ravaillac, a fanatical Catholic, and was succeeded by his son Louis XIII. Baptised as a Catholic but raised in the Protestant faith by his mother Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre, Henry inherited the throne of Navarre in 1572 on the death of his mother. As a Huguenot, Henry was involved in the French Wars of Religion, barely escaping assassination in the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre. He later led Protestant forces against the royal army. As Head of the House of Bourbon, Henry was a direct male-line descendant of Louis IX of France, and "first prince of the blood". Upon the death of his brother-in-law and distant cousin Henry III of France in 1589, Henry was called to the French succession by the Salic law. He initially kept the Protestant faith (the only French king to do so) and had to fight against the Catholic League, which denied that he could wear France's crown as a Protestant. To obtain mastery over his kingdom, after four years of stalemate, he found it prudent to abjure the Calvinist faith. As a pragmatic politician (in the parlance of the time, a politique), he displayed an unusual religious tolerance for the era. Notably, he promulgated the Edict of Nantes (1598), which guaranteed religious liberties to Protestants, thereby effectively ending the Wars of Religion. Considered a usurper by some Catholics and a traitor by some Protestants, Henry became target of at least 12 assassination attempts. An unpopular king immediately after his accession, Henry gained more status after his death. He was admired for his repeated victories over his enemies and his conversion to Catholicism. The "Good King Henry" (le bon roi Henri) was remembered for his geniality and his great concern about the welfare of his subjects. He was celebrated in the popular song "Vive le roi Henri" and in Voltaire's Henriade.

Pour la première fois l'Opéra a accepté d'ouvrir ses portes pour des prises de vue en drone pour s'approcher au plus près de la toile et faire redécouvrir le faste et l'abondance du Palais Garnier. Pour ce tournage exceptionnel, Freeway Prod a conçu spécialement un drone proto-type afin de filmer le plafond de la salle principale et l'oeuvre de Chagall en contre-plongée (Innovation technique Freeway). Diffusion sur ARTE prévue en septembre 2014.

Without the money and patronage of the Medici we might never have heard of artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo or Botticelli.

ECOUEN MEDIEVAL MUSEUM -- ECOUEN, FRANCE (NEAR PARIS) 2010
 
01:13
Ecouen, France is just North of where I live in Paris-Saint-Denis, France. My idea: stay overnight in the Hotel Campanile near Ecouen, not far from Paris. Not very expensive, and pretty comfortable, as French hotels go. In the morning, either walk to the Château d'Ecouen, or ask the hotel to call you a taxi, but first, check out, and leave your bags there for later in the day. Spend the morning (they open at 10 am, I think) visiting this, arguably the best collection of medieval art, items and rooms in the world. The castle's history is fascinating, and there are even some nice gardens. The surrounding woods are lovely, but be careful! There are old gypsum mines there, and it's dangerous! Stay on the paths. (Gypsum is used to make plaster of Paris.) This museum is free many days, and way, way cheaper than most museums in central Paris. All around Paris, right OUTSIDE the city, you may see more interesting, less-crowded sights, and they're certainly cheaper! This museum has the best boutique ever -- their Spring, 2010 selection was wonderful! Gifts galore, at fabulous prices. For as little as two euros fifty eurocents, you'll find wonderful treasures to carry away and share or cherish. This place is so big, and budgets are tight so they cannot open it all, every day. So you have to keep going back! I must have been there twenty times already! I get frustrated when I cannot see the great things I saw before, but such are the limits of the French culture ministry. Alas. The first Sunday of each month, lots of stuff in France is FREE! They call it "heritage days," and these started nearly ten years ago, and are a GREAT way for EVERYONE to be able to enjoy the wonders of France -- for free! Ecouen CAN be reached via public transportation from Paris, but it's a bit tricky. After you've spent the morning feasting your eyes, feast your palate in their gorgeous restaurant. What a setting! After lunch, if the weather is nice, spread that bedsheet you packed in your bag for the day, and take your siesta out on one of the lawns. There you'll be, perched high on hills, with a marvelous countryside all around you. Feel like a prince, or a princess, even if for only an hour or so! Then, go back in and see more of this museum! The gardens are not famous, but they are ample and wondrous to stroll. The architecture of the castle is fascinating. Of course, there are tours. But I just wander. And wander. And wander . . . Later on in the afternoon, when your "eyeballs are stuffed," as I like to say, go back to the Hotel Campanile, pick up your bags, and then go into Paris, or move on on your wonderful tour of Ile-de-France, "the Greater Paris region." Don't be a sap! Central Paris is for squares. Even if you've GOT the do-re-mi, why throw it away in those same old boring haunts everyone else has seen? Why not stay in Senlis? Saint-Denis? Houdan? Verneuil-sur-Avre? AND SO ON! All around Paris are marvelous castles and abbeys. I've lived here 16 years, and haven't even scratched the surface!
