The second secret of Marie Antoinette and Alessandro Cagliostro, the secret wealth of the French monarchy, is given to Arsène Lupin by Josephine Balsamo in the book The Countess of Cagliostro. This is the world of Arsène Lupin (1924). Since the time of Julius Caesar, the Kings of France have been passing down a secret, which Arsène Lupin has now learned, in The Mystery of the Hollow Needle. The fabled needle has the most incredible riches one could conceive, including the money of the French monarchs and a collection of pearls, diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and queens' dowries.
