Storyline

The literary horror classic theme traces to Voltaire, the Illumination author 'philosopher' who who was a bitter enemy of Louis XIV's absolute monarchy. He had himself been a victim himself for three years of the 'lettre de cachet', a practice which gave the crown discretionary powers to have any subject arrested and incarcerated indefinitely without form of trial. Secret prisons in desolate fortresses are documented, as author St. Mars was governor under war minster Louvois, as well as anonymous prisoners and even masks, but an iron mask for years would have been fatal by infection. For a royal brother there are no indications, as royal births were very public court events. Written by KGF Vissers
