The French

Revolution

"I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long."
Marie Antoinette

Who Betrayed Marie Antoinette? 

As the French Revolution grew ever more bloody, the royal family knew they had to escape if they hoped to survive. With the help of deeply loyal friends, the royals managed to escape the Tuileries palace on the night of June 20th...and were well out of Paris before their escape was discovered. But then disaster stuck. The fiercely loyal but inexperienced Duc d'Choiseul, waiting with fresh horses for the family, panicked when the family was delayed in reaching him. The Duc dispersed the horses and his soldiers, hoping to avoid capture. Thus the royal family, who could go no further without horses, were recaptured by revolutionaries. In this event, the Duc did not merely panic, but had been sent a note stating that the family had been recaptured, and to disperse his men. Come back in time to the beginning of the French Reign of Terror, and help discover who betrayed that most maligned of women, Marie Antoinette.
