So since I had fun speculating on Kamijo’s character as Louis XVII becoming a vampire etc. etc. (back when La Vie en Rose came out), and I was right, I thought I’d have fun picking this one apart too. xD

Well, my guess this time was that that red-cravat-clad figure was Beethoven, at first because of the striking resemblance to the famous 1820(-ish) Stieler portrait of the musician. This one’s bending it a bit more I think, though, but I don’t know much about Beethoven’s life. I do know that the timelines would KIND of make sense in age - if that was Beethoven waltzing into baby Louis XVII’s cell, it would have had to have been somewhere in between 1793 and 1795, because 1793 is when Louis XVI had his head lopped off, and 1795 is when Louis XVII died in prison as a widdle baby. :(

Beethoven himself was born in December 1770 (speculated; his birth records aren’t known but his baptism records are), so he would have been mid twenties during Louis XVII’s imprisonment. Only thing was, I’m pretty sure during the 1790s, Beethoven was establishing himself in Vienna, Austria, and as 1790s = crazy French Revolution tiems (including war with Austria), I don’t see why Beethoven would up and leave his musical studies/establishment to hang out in Paris. :P

(But I’m not an expert on Beethoven at all sooo eheh).

And the scene when supposed-Beethoven is teaching Kamijo to play - we could assume Kamijo’s Louis XVII is in his twenties or so, placing it at about 1810s? Beethoven was going deaf around then I think, and he took very few music students, was poor trying to take care of his family, etc. etc. And I don’t think he liked France very much (so why save the dauphin ?!).

Uhm. So it doesn’t seem logical that the guy is Beethoven, but the resemblance was too much, and it seems like a fun way for Kamijo’s character to say ‘heyyyy I learned from one of the best ;D!’ So … so … *throws historian-self out the window*

Actually I think he just didn’t go deeply enough with this XD Beethoven looks the same after 10 years, he has white hair when he meets Louis in The Temple, he was ~25 about that time so it doesn’t make sense. But still, it’s him for sure. It’s a changed story. In original Louis died, so we should expect too much historical truth xD

Yeah definitely, but I mean the Louis XVII thing was way more plausible so I was impressed with that. Then it was like *random Beethoven from left field* xD!

Pleasantly surprised by Kamijo’s preview. I’m going to go history nerd for a sec here and speculate that, yes, while the ‘Louis’ thing is prolly Kamijo appealing to his Interview obsession, I couldn’t help but notice the paintings in the background: LeBrun’s famed portrait of Marie-Antoinette, and one of what looks like the dauphin, who would have been Louis XVII.
Remember the ‘Louis XVII’ thing that kept popping up in Kamijo’s preview? Plus all the pre-French Revolution terms? My speculation is that he’s pulling the vampire thing, but that the story is he’s Louis XVII, the dauphin (heir to the throne) of France. xD
Review time! Recall that Louis XVI was executed in January 1793. His heir, therefore, would have been his son the dauphin, Louis XVII. Of course with all the crazy revolutionaries running around, it wasn’t like there was gonna be a king anytime soon. And to top it off, the poor dauphin died as a child … I think in prison (Marie-Antoinette and the fam were being held in the Temple at the time, if I recall? Correct me if I’m wrong ^^).
In any case, fast forward to Napoleon’s fall in 1815. Guess who gets plopped back on the throne during the Restoration? Louis XVI’s widdle brother, the Comte de Provence, now known as Louis XVIII. See that? The 18th. They skipped from the 16th to the 18th because Louis XVI’s son would have been the 17th.
But obviously he couldn’t take the throne since he was dead.
OR DID HE DIE?
/dork
You can thank me later. ;DD

OMG YES. I analyzed his preview the same way, actually. Everyone was taking on the whole “Kamijo’s mimicking Lestat” point of view but I really paid attention to the historical theme he was putting in this. You explained it very well!

*high fives* I’m glad someone else saw the historical theme&#160;! (I’m not an Anne Rice fan so I was impressed at the historical fiction potential here). And thanks for the kind words. :)

Months later &#8230;. I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT I CALLED IT. SO THERE.
