If all of my studies of Rousseau and the philosophies point to anything, the monarchy must fall!
How dare they slaughter thousands of our people with that wretched guillotine!
Good moral values WILL prevail!
My fellow Frenchmen! I will lead us out of this misery as "The Uncorruptable"! DOWN WITH THE MONARCHY!!!
The evils committed by the King will only be repaid by his death!
OFF WITH THE KING'S HEAD!!
Off with the heads of ALL who appose the revolution!!
1794, Robespierre's Trial and Execution for His Corruption
In the end, Robespierre was tried and branded an outlaw after his motives for using his power were questioned. Being brought to the blade shortly after a botched suicide attempt, Robespierre and 21 of his allies were executed by the same weapon he had once so vehemently apposed.
