Two sixes!

My lucky day!

Think so?

You saw my last roll.

Yes, but it was your last roll.

Well, it's alright.

Hell's going to be a dark place.

Marquis du Mareil!

Count du Montgomery!

From the city marshal of Foix.

'The City Marshal of Foix reports that he

is informed by a reliable agent that... '

Go on.

'The City Marshal of Foix reports...

...that he is informed by a reliable

agent that the Duke de Foix...

- ... visited the castle. '

- And?

- 'And left again for the Spanish border. '

- What?

Those damned idiots!

I've got troops posted all along

the border and they've let him slip again!

Once they lay hands on de Foix,

then France is saved.

He's the head in front

of the whole movement.

And without him, all the rest alike.

Sheep without a shepherd!

But he comes and goes as he likes.

He propels his rising at his own leisure.

And every day, my position weakens,

my influence wanes.

Couldn't you occupy his castle?

Arrest his womenfolk?

Yes, and set the whole countryside in

a blaze and lose my one chance...

...to lay this scoundrel by the heels?

His wife and sisters...

Where a whole regiment would have failed,

one man might succeed.

He would have to be a clever man.

There may be time!

Call Rivarolle!



Gil de Berault!

Gil de Berault!

Gil de Berault!

Come down.

By order of the cardinal.

To His Eminence Berault.

Captain, please tell your men to conduct

me to my friend, the cardinal.


Show this gentleman

the way to the cardinal.

I'm afraid your sentence is suspended.

Better my sentence than myself,

Your Eminence.

I'm not so sure of that.

But I am going to give you

a chance to prove it.

By serving France as you

have never served her before.

Not another duel, Your Eminence?

Yes. Of wits.
