Paintballing was invented by King Louis XIII of France in 1626.
Increasingly miffed by the number of his noblemen being killed or wounded in duels, the French monarch was keen for the aristocracy to find less lethal ways of settling disputes.
The toff duellists first tried pillow fights but, after le Comte de Rouen was tickled to death, they settled on paintballing as a way of satisfying their honour.
