In the 16th century, the world of the aristocrats was slowly being overturned
by the bourgeoisie; hungry for wealth and power

In order to survive the hierarchical ladder, the bourgeoisie attempted clever deceptions
through politics and enterprising, encroaching on the power of the aristocrats, and
toppling their position in economy and society.
The aristocrats were aghast by the transition, but they endured it.

as they salvage any integrity they have left having deceived their way
to the top from the alley of the pestilence ridden slums.
