Montaigne dispossessed noble ambassador spy (Ambrose Bouchard du Paix)
I was born to a noble line the only son of a marquis, a title that was supposed to be mine one day.
My father cared little for our lands or the people in it and worked them to the point of ruin to fund his increasingly opulent lifestyle. When the funds ran out he borrowed and gambled more. When the debtors came he sold off our estates piece by piece.
I thank Theus that my sister was married off while our family name still meant something.
I always had the best teachers available more to help my father brag about his spending than any concern of my education.
Now the land and title of my birthright is gone and I am noble in name only.
What else was I going to do?
