Relationship to the True story of the Bal des Ardents[edit]

There is an event in 28 January 1393. Bal des Ardents, where Charles VI of France (the mad king of France) almost died dressed as hairy wild man (in resin-soaked costumes covered with flax to look like hair) along with 5 other members of the nobility in a dance at a party of the nobility -- all chained together. The king's brother Louis, Duke of Orléans "accidentally" caused a torch to be brought to them and 3 of the dancers died and the king was wounded.

This is clearly the precedent for the Hop Frog story. 71.225.92.207 (talk) 04:35, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Cool. Did you see that it's already mentioned in the article? --Midnightdreary (talk) 20:27, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
