The following narrative of the captivity of the little King of the Temple is to be distinguished from the numerous works treating the same subject, inasmuch as it is based entirely on official documents and authorised testimony, intentionally omitting the touching and doubtful legends under which the thread of this sorrowful story has too often disappeared. It does not follow that no deduction is allowable. The gaps in this confused chronicle are numerous and, in order to set forth the peripetia without too many interruptions, one must indeed sometimes have recourse to the subterfuge of argument; yet it has been made use of with reserve and through necessity, preferring, in the absence of certainty, an avowal of doubt to a rash affirmation. From the comparison of these presumptions and these indisputably authentic facts results a fresh solution of what Louis Blanc calls the Mystery of the Temple, a partial but unexpected solution which will perhaps astonish my readers, which will shock some of them, and which, it is to be feared, will satisfy nobody completely, since it does not lead to the desired end.
