The fictitious and grandiloquent confession of Charles, Count of Artois, later King Charles X, supposedly given to a Spanish priest. Charles' attempt to overthrow finance minister Jacques Necker provoked the storming of the Bastille in 1789, following which Charles did leave France, but he did not go to Lisbon nor confess his sins in tears at his own wickedness as suggested here, but travelled in exile around Europe (including a stay in Holyroodhouse), returning to France following the restoration of his brother as King Louis XVIII.
