Okay, finally done. I'm tired now, it's 4AM. This chapter was very interesting. Sakamoto-sensei is starting to incorporate more history into the story and it's making everything a lot more dramatic and interesting. Next volume comes out in late December, I'll start it whenever I get a raw.

Title: n°20 The Great Crime of "Lèse-Majesté"
Narration: The first estate, "those that prey",
the second estate, "those that fight",
and the third estate----
"those that plough".
In the age lasting until the 18th Century, the "Ancien Régime" (Old Regime)
an individual's life was decided in advance based on their "birth" and "status" rather than their personal abilities.
Under this absolute monarchy, a system with the royal family at the apex, the third estate (commoners) which made up 98% of the people were exploited by the ruling class that made up a mere 2%.

Page 206-207:
Narration: In the 18th Century, there was no Garden of Eden where people frolicked in equality across all of France-----
Title: n°20 The Great Crime of "Lèse-Majesté"

Page 208:
[That king has some good taste in silly statues.]

Page 209:
Charles: Everything is perfect. How beautiful...
It's like a paradise on Earth created by God...
Damiens: Somewhere in those lights you can see through the front gate
is his majesty, the king......
Long ago, the lord of a manor let me see a 1 Louis D'or,
the coin that has the king carved on it...

Page 210:
Damian: I wonder what kind of face
his majesty, the king, really has...

Page 211:
Damian: We can see those lights so well from this dark place,
but from where they are, they probably can't see us at all...
Even though
we're definitely right here------...
...I no longer wish for anything else.

Page 212:
Damian: All I want is for everyone to know that us workers
gettin' covered in mud and dust until we're pitch black, are alive..
Doc, I just remembered somethin' I've gotta do. I'm gona have ta say goodbye here.
Charles: Huh?

Page 213:
Damian: Doc, I'm sorry. It looks like in the end I dragged you all over the place all day and never gave you the money I owed.
But I'm gonna need to ask something else. When Jack dies, could you bury him for me? Even the corner of a potter's field is fine.
Charles: P-Please wait!
Monsieur Damiens!!!
!!!
M...
Monsieur Damiens!!!

Box: 3 Months Later
March 26th 1757
Someone: Recently this January, his royal majesty was attacked by a vulgar ruffian at the Palace of Versailles.
Everyone remembers this incident, yes? Rumors about it spread all over Paris...

Page 215:
Anne: Today, he was judged by the Chambre de la Tournelle
and he has been sentenced for the basest, and most unpleasant punishment between heaven and earth, the punishment for the crime of "Lèse-Majesté".
The criminal's name is Robert-François Damienss.
The father of a child which was previously accepted to our house for medical treatment.

Page 216:
Anne: Honestly... It was it was fortunate that Jean-Baptist disposed of that child so quickly, avoiding any lasting damage.
It would be trouble for the family for rumors of us having the son of such a criminal in our house...
The criminal had been hired as a servant and stole 240 Louis D'or from his master's residence. Then that hoodlum was on the run
it had already been declared that he be hanged to death.

Page 217:
Anne: And at the moment his royal majesty had just exited from "the queen's living room" and was about to board his carriage----------
Drunk and in desperation, this petty thief
committed the most evil act in all of French history-----...

Page 218-219:
Anne: He pointed a blade at the king of France---!!!

Page 220:
Guy: Th-That man!!!
Capture him... but do not kill him!!!
Anne: Most fortunately, thanks to his thick coat
Guy: His majesty is all right! It was just a scratch!!
No, it could have been coated in poison! Send the knife to be inspected!
Anne: it had no lasting effect on his royal majesty's life...
Guy: This villain...
Show us his dirty face!!!

Page 221:
Charles: It's odd.
No matter how many times I hear this story, I cannot see his face----...
Anne: What a blessing...

Page 222:
Anne: It has not been done in 150 years, not since the great criminal François Ravaillac assassinated Henry the 4th.
Our Sanson Family will be committing the execution of "Écartèlement", tearing apart of the four quarters of a living body----...!!!
T/N: This specific phrase doesn't seem to be common in English. It's usually just called "dismemberment", "disruption" or being "drawn and quartered". But this is a specific kind that only occurred 5 times in French history. Historically, Robert-François Damiens was the last man to have this punishment.

A suivre dans le volume 3.

[Okay, all done. Next volume comes out in December.]
