OriginEdit

Balthasar Gérard was the assassin of the Dutch independence leader, William I of Orange (William the Silent). He killed William I by shooting him twice with a pistol, and was afterwards tried, convicted, and executed. Roman Catholic king Philip II offered a reward of 25,00 crowns to whoever killed the Dutch leader. During his escape, he had a pig’s bladder tied to his waist to keep him afloat as he swam the moat, but he tripped and was caught by a servant and halberdier.

It had somehow fallen briefly into possession of John Bellingham, who successfully killed British Prime Minister Spencer Perceval.

CollectionEdit

This artifact was originally found by Subhas Chandra Bose and was in his cache of artifacts. It was collected by agent Gerald Stewart July 19, 1945.

EffectsEdit

When worn around the waist, the user can successfully assassinate any leader; the user must commit the act their self. However, they will be caught soon after the attempt and will likely be brutally harmed.
