Execution of Louis XVI, January 21, 1793, 10:22 in the morning

Dublin Core

Title

Execution of Louis XVI, January 21, 1793, 10:22 in the morning

Description

This image shows much the same scene on the platform as the preceding one, but the surroundings are much more in evidence. Visible here are the troops. Eight to nine thousand were mobilized to avoid any efforts at rescue. This is clearly the last moment as Louis XVI has his coat off and his hands secured behind his back. The confessor steadies the King.
