The world's most prolific seer made a great number of predictions and many of these have yet to come to pass.
Michel de Nostradamus, who lived in 16th-Century France, was so well known for his predictions of the future that his name has become synonymous with the idea of prophesizing future events.
He wrote a book - 'Les Propheties' - which is still analyzed and referenced even to this day.
But what specifically did he have in mind for the year 2022 ?
While it's difficult to pinpoint exactly which dates his predictions refer to, some believe that there are certain predictions that can be narrowed down to the present time.
One such example is a reference to a conflict in Europe, about which Nostradamus wrote: "Blue-head shall white-head harm in such degree, as France's good to both shall e'er amount.
Some have interpreted this as a reference to World War III, while others have dismissed it, instead noting that it could simply refer to two competing teams attempting to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Another topic that Nostradamus repeatedly covered was the climate - something that does have significance in the present day due to global warming."Like the Sun the head shall sear the shining sea,"
he wrote. "The Black Sea's living fish shall all but boil. When Rhodes and Genoa, half-starved shall be, the local folk to cut them up shall toil."
Some have interpreted this as a reference to out-of-control climate change.
He also made predictions about the economy and the rising price of food."No abbots, monks, no novices to learn; honey shall cost far more than candle-wax,"
he wrote. "So high the price of wheat, that man is stirred, his fellow man to eat in his despair."
Whether any of his writings genuinely refer to future events however is, as always, open to interpretation.
