This is an original 1896 monochrome photogravure of Gabriel de Lorges, the Comte de Montgomery. He was a captain in the Scots Guard, and unfortunately was responsible for fatally wounding King Henry II in a tragic jousting incident. A splinter broke off his lance, going through Henry's eye and piercing his brain. Although the king reassured Gabriel from his deathbed that he was not at fault, the poor guy felt so terrible that he dropped out of the Scots Guard and converted to Protestantism, thereby making him an enemy of the state.
