Near Paris, Kingdom of France
5 October 1789
- Bishop: 1789. Paris is starving, and the price of bread just tripled. Working-class women are about to change the course of the revolution.
As a laundry woman looked towards a crowd of protesters, the foreman grabbed her and slapped her bottom.
- Foreman: Mind your business, sweetheart.
Théroigne de Méricourt pointed her pistol at the foreman.
- Théroigne: And you mind yours, citizen.
- Bishop: Théroigne de Méricourt. She was the 18th century Joan of Arc - and she didn't take no for an answer.
Théroigne was seen stopping a cart loaded with food and pointing her pistol at the driver.
- Théroigne: That bounty could feed a hundred starving poor. Or one nobleman.
- Driver: Villainous whore! Find a brothel and make yourself use-
Théroigne pulled the driver off the cart and hijacked it.
- Driver: Woah!
- Bishop: While Méricourt was fighting to keep Paris fed, Antoinette and the royals were throwing parties.
- Antoinette: Bring us more of this cake!
Théroigne was shown gathering a group of women.
- Théroigne: Let's tell the royals that our families must eat too!
- Bishop: For the Templars, this march isn't about bread, it's about royal blood...
As the crowd marched, Templar thugs infiltrated it.
- Crowd: Bread! Bread!
- Templars: Blood! Blood!
- Bishop: This bread march really ignites the revolution. Protect it, and keep it peaceful.
Arno set out to protect Théroigne and the march.
- Bishop: Okay, Initiates. Keep Méricourt and her Amazon alive. Powerful people don't want this march to happen.
- Théroigne: We must march to Versailles!
Citizens! Haven't you had enough?
Stand up for your rights, citizens!
- Guard 1: Who are we looking for, anyway?
- Guard 2: Théroigne de Méricourt! I told you a hundred times...
- Bishop: Heads up, Initiates! Check the roofs for snipers.
- Guard 3: You remember the signal?
- Guard 4: What signal?
- Guard 3: The signal that they see Théroigne! The signal is the sound of an owl.
- Guard 4: What does an owl sound like?
- Guard 3: You've never heard an owl?
- Guard 4: Won't they start shooting when they see Théroigne?
- Guard 3: They had better start shooting.
- Guard 4: I'll just keep an ear out for gunshots then.
Arno escorted Théroigne and her ally to a crowd of women being held back at a gatehouse.
- Bishop: You have to take out the gatehouse captains, or this march will never make it out of Paris.
- Théroigne: Kings and nobles pay no tax, while we shoulder the burden for them! We must band together, citizens!
Citizens! We rally to be heard by the King! We do not want violence, we want the King to see how his citizens live!
We speak for the hungry! We speak for the shivering! We speak for Paris!
Come on, citizens! Let's show the King what it means to be hungry!
We ask for food, and they feed us grapeshots! Forward to Versailles, citizens!
Citizens! No more delays! To Versailles! Open this gate!
The King awaits, citizens! Break down this gate!
- Crowd: We're with you, Théroigne!
They can't stop us!
Arno killed the first captain.
- Bishop: One down, two to go, Initiates.
Arno killed the second captain.
- Bishop: Just one more captain in the way.
Arno killed the last captain.
- Bishop: Nice one, Initiates. The gatehouses are clear. Ah, of course. The last line of defense. Fucking cannons. Get over the wall and spike the cannons before the crowd breaks through the gate.
- Guard 3: Whiff of grapeshot at a bunch of ladies? Easiest fifty francs I ever earned.
- Guard 4: Aye. Should be a piece of cake.
- Guard 5: That powder dry? I don't want another misfire on my hands.
- Guard 6: Dry as a bone, sir.
- Guard 5: Where's this damn crowd? Said they'd be here by now.
- Guard 6: Maybe the gate captains held them up some.
- Guard 7: I heard it's all fishmongers marching on Versailles.
- Guard 8: Fishmongers? I wouldn't want to be in the King's shoes right now.
- Guard 7: I've seen those fishwives gut a carp in the blink of an eye.
- Guard 8: Good thing there's a few cannons between us and them.
Arno spiked the first cannon.
- Bishop: One cannon down.
Arno spiked the second cannon.
- Bishop: That's two.
Arno spiked the last cannon.
- Bishop: And that's the last cannon! Méricourt leads this march all the way to Versailles. Nice work.
The Assassins protected Théroigne de Méricourt during the march, which continued to Versailles, after which King Louis was forced to move to Paris.
- In the scene with Marie Antoinette, two goblets are present. These are identical to the one found at the Assassin hideout.
