La Marseillaise de les Blancs

The Catholic and Royal Army also had a version of the Marseillaise. This tune was a major aid in defeating the first republican army thrown against it, when the aged commander of the "blues" thought he heard a reenforcment army approaching and was shocked to see they were attacking instead.

La Marseillaise de les Blancs
Come on, Catholic army!
The day of glory has arrived.
Keep the Republic at bay,
the bloody standard has been raised!
the bloody standard has been raised!
Do you hear in the country
the impure cries of the renegades?
They come all the way into your arms
to take away your daughters and your wives.
To arms inhabitants of Poitou!
Form your battalions!
March on!
March on
The blood of the Blues will redden the fields

Allons armée Catholique,
Le jour de gloire est arrive.
Contre-nous de la République,
L'étendard sanglant est levé,
L'étendard sanglant est levé!
Ontondez-vous dans tchiès campagnes
Les cris impurs diaux scélérats?
Le venant duchque dans vous bras
Prendre vous feuilles et vous femmes.
Aux armes Poitevins! Formez vous bataillons!
Marchons! Marchons!
Le sang daux Bieux rougira nos seillons!


Une Foi, un Roi, Une France.
Vive le Roi.
