Nostradamus Prophecy: the Exile of Franco

From Castille, Franco will bring out the assembly,
The ambassador will not agree and cause a schism:
The people of Rivera will be in the crowd,
And they will refuse entry into the Gulf
(Century 9, Quatrain 16)

In this spectacular quatrain, Nostradamus gets the names exact! Spanish dictator Francisco Franco (mentioned in first line) and his predecessor, Primo de Rivera (the people of Rivera), are mentioned outright. In 1936, the leftist-leaning Republican government had Franco exiled to the Canary Islands (and they will refuse entry into the gulf.) He later returned to Spain and organized a military junta. Afterwards Spain the experienced a by a full-scale civil war.
