Man of War – Excerpt No. 72

However, there were perils inherent to being a French member of royalty. Bernard often spoke of avoiding Spain altogether. If captured they would use him as a bargaining chip to gain concessions.

If this was France, then his Father would have him hunted down and enlist the help from his extended family. His options on where to go were limited, especially if his father put a price on his head. Still, finding him would be made more difficult if he was not recognised on sight.
