    One thought on “The Man Behind The Iron Mask

    1. Mary Catelli on said:

      A review of the legends and the realities.Yes, there was a prisoner kept masked -- velvet, it seems, not iron. But things expanded from there. From Voltaire's hints, where he points out with great portentousness but, unfortunately no accuracy, that no one prominent vanished the year the man was arrested, that lead to the most common story, the twin of Louis XIV -- not, as it turns out, plausible, because all accounts agreed that the man in the mask was tall, and Louis XIV was, in fact, rather sh [...]

      An odd little book, but one I once stayed up all night reading. Noone looks at the tale of the Man In The Iron Mask, made famous by Dumas (please, let's not think about Leonardo di Caprio) and applies wit, intelligence, research skills, and clear good sense to reach some elegantly sensible conclusions. We know there was a real prisoner, kept in special cells and kept hidden away--- though masked in velvet, not iron, when transported ---and we know that a host of wild guesses exist about his iden [...]

      Close enough to four stars, though I often lost track of the various names. A look into how the Man in the Iron Mask became widespread legend in France and possible explanations. Emphasis on possible. If you want definitive, too bad.

      Who hasn't heard the story of the man in the iron mask and wondered who he really was? Maybe Noone tells you more than you want to know about all the solutions to the mystery that have been proposed, beginning with Voltaire. Get ready for a roller-coaster ride through 17th century French and English history -- well written but with lots of names to keep track of - some famous, some not. I had been wanting to know more about Louvois, Louis XIV's minister of war, and I was not disappointed by the [...]

      What I enjoyed learning: the prisoner in the iron mask was NOT the identical twin of the king. Dumas' d'Artagnan was a real Musketeer, Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan, who lived during the time of the prisoner. There was a real prisoner who was taken in a sedan chair for two hundred miles wearing an iron mask when he was being transferred.
