The man in the iron mask was the twin brother of French king, Louis XIV imprisoned for over forty years at Château d'If off the coast of France to prevent his taking the throne.

Before he was confined, the man in the iron mask fathered a son in secret. The child and his descendents were raised to believe they were the rightful heir to the throne, and to take it when the time was right.

In 1914, the last descendent — by which time the family line had established itself at the top of the Marseilles underworld — made his move to restore the country's monarchy but was stopped before he could achieve success.

Behind the scenesEdit

While based on the historical masked figure, the legend of the prisoner being a relation of Louis XIV is derived from the story published in the 19th century by novelist Alexandre Dumas.
