Marie Antoinette arrived at the Conciergerie in the Temple Prison, Paris on August 2, 1793. She was captured, and taken from her daughter, Marie-Thérèse. King Louis XVI, had been executed earlier in the year and her son, Louis Charles, had been taken from her a month earlier. She would reside here in the slimy dark brick room for 2 months until her trial. She had limited food and water supply
Marie Antoinette's trial took place on October 14, 1793. She stood in front of a crowd and judges and was unrecognizable from her latest living conditions. She was accused of treason, theft, and sexual abuse of her own son. The tables started to turn for a bit when she begged for mercy against false accusations of her son. However, the verdict was the same. She would go to the guillotine in two days.
In Marie Antoinette's final hours she was carried through the streets of Paris in a cart and had things thrown and screamed at her. She sobbed in utter despair and was carried to the guillotine 2 days after her trial on October 16, 1793. She was executed at 12:30 pm and as her head was shown to a triumphant crowd shouting "long live the republic!!" The last monarchy was dead.
