Hi, I am the ghost of Louis XVI. You may see me as the bad guy or the antagonist of the French Revolution. Now that I am dead I can re-watch past events. Today I'll take you on my adventure in the French Revolution.
Robespierre was an intelligent and deceiving man. He fooled all of France into not trusting each other and accusing each other of treason against the revolution. 17,000 people were executed by the guillotine and about 200,000 people were arrested in that same year.
The Reign of Terror did eventually come to an end. Robespierre was eventually taken down when a group of his enemies teamed to get him out of power. He was eventually arrested and held captive with his accomplices. During this time a fight broke out in the room where they were held captive and it led to an attempted suicide by Robespierre. Robespierre survived with a shattered and was still executed. His last words were to thank someone in the crowd for handing him a handkerchief for the blood dripping from his mouth.
