The King Returns to Paris

Dublin Core

Title

The King Returns to Paris

Description

From Berthault’s series of great moments in the Revolution, this engraving presents a version of events on 6 October 1789 favorable to the King. Reminiscent of orderly ceremonial royal appearances, this image suggests that the outcome stemmed from the King’s own will and that his heroic intervention prevented the massed National Guard units from firing.

Creator

Pierre-Gabriel Berthault (engraver)
