Within the kingdom of France, a growing number of the population eventually came to dislike her, accusing her of being profligate, promiscuous and of harboring sympathies for France's enemies.
During the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette was convicted by the Revolutionary Tribunal accused of treason to the principles of the revolution and was executed by guillotine on Place de la Révolution on October 16th, 1793.
At first, the Princess of Moss appears as the ghost of Marie Antoinette, wearing an exquisitely elaborated long dress fashioned in blue and gold. She floats down from above and hovers around the screen, attempting to damage the hero via physical contact. Looks can be deceiving, though, and the ripped-open cocoon in the background should hint the player about the Princess's true nature.
After sustaining enough damage, the Princess will stop floating and reveal a much less pleasant form: a monstrous gigantic moth which rips out of her back. The insect itself is the real identity of this foe and the human skin is just a disguise to conceal its monstrous nature, letting it move among society without being discovered.
Once transformed, it becomes much more mobile in midair and generally tends to fly high above, out of the reach of most attacks. It flies across the screen expelling poisonous dust in its path and occasionally makes swoops and dives at the hero.
- Her name is a mistranslation of "Princess of Moths" or "Moth Princess".
- The Princess of Moss wears an elaborated 18th-century long dress fashioned in blue and gold. Variations of this apparel are very common in many of Marie Antoinette's portraits.
