Sounds like a royalty to me! I thought that the French Revolution was to remove that sort of thing? [:D][:D][:D]

One thing that the French have a corner on - perfume! Lace.

And not a bad army overall!

No doubt though. After many years of campaigning some of those officers were longing more for their estates than for the field of battle.
