I think this question is broken...
@NSDCars5 I already sent a PM (so as not to spoil the correct answer) message to @jfitzpatrick.
I kinda spoiled the answer anyway...
Yeah, that was what I was kinda not-subtly hinting at.
Legends and Rumors About the Man in the Iron Mask
The most popular of all the legends regarding this prisoner pertains to his lineage. It has been said that the Man in the Iron Mask was the twin brother of King Louis XIV. The story goes on to say that the man was kept hidden because of his rights to the throne. Another story says that the prisoner was indeed the king’s brother, but not his twin. This one varies too.
What I had read about it from The World's Greatest Secrets said he was either the king's twin brother or a paramour of the king's mistress (who happened to involved herself in the arts of black magic, which was a crime by default- so in order to silence this man and kept anyone from ever know about him and find out about the king's mistress shady affairs, the king had him masked for the rest of his life). Either way, it's still a mystery!.
