Cardinal Richelieu by chriskuhlmann Cardinal Richelieu by chriskuhlmann
The head of the French Church and Louis XIII's chief minister. Power hungry, cynical and seemingly devoid of humanity the Cardinal is a red cloaked spider, weaving webs of intrigue from the shadows of the French court. He is famous for the utterance: "If you give me six lines written by the most honest man, I will find something in them to hang him."

An interior illustration from Triple Ace Games All For One: Régime Diabolique. An RPG loosely based on the world of Alexander Dumas. For more info visit the website: [link]

Ah, Armand Jean du Plessis, the ol' Cardinal de Rich. Say what you want about him, but he was one based statesman.

Your drawing is beautiful, but your comment on the cardinal of Richelieu is absolutely false. It is one of the biggest Secretary that my country, France is had.

Could be based on either his portrait or George Arliss's performance in the 1935 movie (a good portrayal, by the way).

I took a look at that bust on your [link]. I see the resemblance - but try that Arliss film - for a change he does look like the historical figure he is portraying.
