Day One -- The Louvre
You may know of Cardinal Richelieu from many sources, including the caricature of him in many versions of The Three Musketeers. Perhaps as much as any one, he made the power of the French throne and his master Louis XIII admired and feared the world over. We'll see more of him later on when we get to Vendée, where this master of geo-politics began his career in the early 1600's.
