Ghastly caricature by James Gillray of Louis XVI being separated from his family. The corpulent Louis clutches a goblet of wine while a haggard and whorish looking Marie Antoinette throws her hands helplessly in the air. Sans culottes gleefully watch a priest give their former King a last prayer. ~ Leah Marie Brown

'Charlotte Corday' Painted by Paul Jacques Aimé Baudry (1860). Corday's decision to kill Jeam-Paul Marat was stimulated not only by her revulsion at the September Massacres, for which she held Marat responsible, but by her fear of an all-out civil war. She believed that Marat was threatening the Republic (through his radical, writings), and that his death would end violence throughout the nation. She also believed that King Louis XVI should not have been executed
