Hey, everyone and, I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I am here with a little about the man in the iron mask, it is claimed by writer Voltaire, that he was King Louie the 14th's older brother and, rightfully the true king, but king Louie had him put into prison with an Iron Mask, for 34 years so nobody would know. Sounds insane but if you think like a greedy, power hungry person it does some what make sense. Who ever it was. What a awful experience it must have been. What have you heard about the man in the iron mask? Photo is from Wikipedia, but my main source for the information is a show called forbidden history.

@TRBRocks420 I have read about this but the man was arrested in 1669, he would have been almost 31 years old if he was Louis twin, where was he before that? And why choose one twin over the other. He is mot likely Mazarin's valet who just knew too much.

I did not know it was a true story!! I will have to watch the Forbidden History program--I see that I can access it on Amazon Prime, that's great. I gave up pay TV and now have a Roku box that my ex gave me with his Netflix and my son added me on his Hulu and Amazon Prime so I have free TV!! I've seen both the 1929 and 1939 versions of the movie and they were both very good. I see from looking it up that there are also more modern versions. I did read the book about 40 years ago and it was very entertaining.
