Killing the Executioner

It was on this day in 1794 that the French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre, the primary driving force behind the regicide of His Most Christian Majesty King Louis XVI, was sent to the guillotine to be executed at the Place de la Revolution by his own former comrades grown weary if his tyranny and paranoid bloodlust. Couldn't have happened to a nicer fella. Vive l'France! On this occasion justice truly was served.


  1. It should have happened much sooner than it did!

  2. Ah, the 'mills of the gods'...and in this case, they didn't even grind that slowly.

    Did you see EMV's post on the play, DANTON'S DEATH? Some of the comments were quite amusing:

  3. It is a sort of Poetic Justice.
