Things I Like: Nostradamus (Reign)

Nostradamus Reign CW

One of the few notable historical figures in Reign outside of any royal family, Nostradamus is seen in the show as the “servant” of Queen Catherine de Medici. Despite her high-standing with the Catholic Church, nobody seems bothered that his “powers” could be considered demonic. He does predict that Francis would die and it would be Mary’s “fault”.

Nostradamus sees the future Reign CW

His powers are very limited, he has visions that can change with turning events. Though he does predict that one of Mary’s ladies would perish. In the show, he’s pretty talented with medicine, more of a doctor than a psychic.

But couldn’t see that King Henry II would throw him in the dungeon on a falsehood that he was in Catherine’s bed. Eventually he is let go.

After King Henry’s death, he and Catherine have a falling out. He ends up disappearing for most of the show after that.

Nostradamus helps King Francis II Reign CW

Until we find out that he was helping King Francis II with his terminal illness. Unlike his mom, Francis always treated Nostradamus kindly and with proper respect.
