In belated vengeance for the French Revolution, the Prince beats the Volk off.

Couldn't black set up an inescapable mating net with 22...Qxa2 and Bb5? The Q sacrifice looks interesting with 22...Qxa2 23. Qxg7+ Kxg7 24. Rdg1 Kh3? 25. Ng8# or 24...Kh8? 25. Rg8# but I don't see the mate after 24...Kxf7
