Mmmmmm but was there any expectation at the time of keeping that? He's much more a politician than a religious figure (though actual Richelieu was pretty religious).

I made those categories late at night, and need to work on them, anyway.

Probably not universally, no. But that's true of everyone on that list.

(There is a bit in the novel where Richelieu is about to do something that will affect Our heroes negatively and Athos distracts him by starting to babble about his mistresses. Which suggests to me that even if everyone knew that Richelieu wasn't exactly chaste, it was not 100% uncontroversial.)

Yeah. I need to rewrite that list so it makes sense. Hang on:

People who are flirting outside wedding vows, serious relationships and/or vows of celibacy:
Milady, Athos, Constance, Queen Anne, Adele, Married Woman, Flea, Emil Bonnaire, King Louis, Richelieu

People who knowingly flirt with people they should not flirt with, though they themselves are free,
Aramis, d'Artagnan, Remy, Porthos

People who have, on screen, only flirted with people with whom they're in a relationship:
Marie Bonnaire, Jacques, Charon, Suzette, Vadim, Marie de Medici, Guard Captain, Duke of Savoy, Duchess of Savoy

Random other people who flirted:
Spanish Ambassador, Waitress, Ninon, Alice, Agnes

You're right, anon. Every other religious person so far has been really good about keeping their vows, so Richelieu is an outlier and deserves the spot.

Surely that visiting Duchess who was trying to seduce King Louis counts as well?
