Comment by Van Berkel

Source text: 2000-Chomarat-facsimile
L'an que Saturne en eau sera conioinct,
Auecques Sol,le Roy fort & puissant:
A Reims & Aix sera receu & oingt,
Apres conquestes meurtrira innocens.

Translation (Van Berkel, 2002)
The year in which Saturn in the water will be together
With the Sun, the very powerful King
Will be received and anointed at Reims and Aix,
After conquests he will murder the innocent.

Van Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a horary chart quatrain.
The first and second line indicate a conjunction of the Sun and Saturn in one of the water signs Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.
In the imagination period (October 16, 1524 - February 27, 1554), there was a Sun-Saturn conjunction on July 12, 1534 on the last degree of Cancer. This conjunction was almost exactly in opposition with Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn. For this reason, July 12, 1534, has been supposed to be the composing date instead of June 28, 1533, when there was also a Sun-Saturn conjunction.
The fulfilment date of this quatrain is around July 29, 2308.


Comment by Halbronn
Halbronn links the compilation of the quatrains 04-86 and 09-86 to 1593, the year in which in France a new king had to be appointed. According to Halbronn, quatrain 04-86 reflects the dream of French kings to become Germany's emperor. This quatrain, which he linked to Charles III of Lorraine, one of the pretendents to the throne, originates according to Halbronn from the (catholic) camp of the League, which resisted against Henry of Navarre, the protestant pretendent, who in the course of 1593 would convert himself to catholicism. In June-July 1593, the Sun and Saturn were in Cancer.
Elsewhere on this site, Halbronn's article Les deux quatrains "86" du couronnement contains his full comment upon this quatrain.
