Bastille Storming

Bastille Storming

When members of the Third Estate stormed the Bastille and kick-started the French Revolution, the infamous fortress and prison held just 7 old men captive, none of them political prisoners. They were the only ones in there at the time and one of them was a drunk, lunatic Irish guy named Whyte de Malleville who had no idea what was going on.
