From the update:
And now something completely different – Cardinal Richelieu! Nobody expects the French Inquisition…
The Red Eminence, as he was known, was a powerful clergyman acting as the French King Louis XIII’s First Minister. Richelieu transformed France into a strong central power and wielded not inconsiderable influence during the war.
Our model is firmly inspired by Henri Motte’s depiction of Richelieu besieging La Rochelle as seen above – a brooding piece of art that should have any gamer worth their salt heading for the Thirty Years War section of our new webstore!
