This leader will the prophecy implies advance from Partha and Media; this implies bases inside Iran. It has been said in the past that this leader will be the great chief Iran is waiting for; for the action takes place in areas near Iran like Greece and Spain. In the past interpretations I have also interpreted about a fleet being destroyed in the Adriatic Sea; all these are adjoining water bodies.
This Nostradamus prophecy I think ties up and is a part of the other prophecies concerning the attack on Iran which acts as a trigger to the World War - 3. The Persian leader is probably the one who comes to the aid of Iran; Third Antichrist. This also ties up with the advance of the third Antichrist into France; this probably looks like the route he takes.
There are a lot of isolated quatrains which Nostradamus has composed which if tied together could help decode the exact sequence of events leading to World War 3.
Century 3 - 64.
