A few quick bits about the storming of the Bastille.
Thousands were involved with the storming of the Bastille, and near 100 people did not survive. Of everyone only 650 were named 'Conquerors of the Bastille' and just 1 was a woman.
Rumors and images were circulated at an incredible rate, adding to the reputation of the event.
Only 7 prisoners were found inside and two were certified. (insane)
A famous character who dwelled in the Bastille was The Man in the Iron mask. He was forced to wear an iron mask and not even the guards knew who he was. His story was somewhat fabricated, whereas records indicate that there was indeed a man kept in a mask for a few years, the mask was made of velvet and he was treated well.
