Sometimes, the oldies are better then everything new they are throwing at us...
And that is definitly something that goes for Le Chevalier D`Eon, a 24 episode long anime, based on the manga of similar name, from 2006.
The series is placed near the end of the reign of France's Louis XV, when an emmisary of the crown, Lia de Beaumont, is found dead in a casket drifting on the Seine. Her brother swears to avenge her, and this spirals him down into a scheme of events he never anticipated.
Working in concert with Maximillien Robespierre, she actually bestowed the psalms on royalty in europe, but that the plan is that the people overthrow the ruling castes and rise to the true power, as nobility is a thing from the past. As they travel through Russia and into England, d`Eon learns some harsh truths... and a very unexpected conclusion.
Crippling foot pain was their plan all along
