51. 32.iv - Midnight's Conclusion
The Great Fire of Versailles led to a chain reaction. It reignited Anglo-French rivalries and many of the citizens of Versailles - proletariat and bourgeois alike - revolted to remove British influence from their city. A revolution formed and after about fifteen years of warring - losing and winning, dying and surviving - the French eventually rid their lands of the British entirely. It was quickly succeeded by a recession and economic strife - as Britain had control over many of the trade routes by both land and sea.
But these were also freed up. But that's a different story.
