Hello there. I'm King Louis XVI. I was the last king of France. I'm going to tell you a story about the execution of me. Let's go back in time in the era of the Radicals and the Monarchs
We were the French Republic which was a form of government in which the country is considered a "public matter". One good thing about republics are that positions are directly/indirectly elected versus being inherited.
Let's discuss about Moderates and Radicals. Moderates believed a monarchy could work, supported individual rights, and limited the power of a king by adding a legislature.
