Fouquet was found guilty and sent to the most isolated prison in France, high in the Pyrenees Mountains
Originally, the supreme courts of France were inclined to let Fouquet off with simple a banishment. Louis XIV however, knew Fouquet would still have considerable power and influence in France even being forced abroad and therefore changed is sentence to life imprisonment.
Most historians believe that Fouquet was actually sent to Pignerol de Savoy in the Alps of northwest Italy near the French boarder. But you get the point…According to legend, Fouquet was joined only by Eustache Dauger who served as his manservant. Dauger later became the basis for the legendary tale of The Man in the Iron Mask
