Pope Pius VII (14 August 1742 – 20 August 1823). He was born Barnaba Niccolò Maria Luigi Chiaramonti. He reigned as Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church from 14 March 1800 to his death in 1823. Chiaramonti was also a monk of the Order of Saint Benedict in addition to being a well known theologian and bishop throughout his life.

In 1796, during the French Revolutionary Wars, French troops under Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Rome and took as prisoner Pope Pius VI. He was taken as prisoner to France, where he died in 1799. The following year, after a sede vecante period lasting approximately six months, Chiaramonti was elected to the papacy, taking the name Pius VII.

Pius at first attempted to take a cautious approach in dealing with Napoleon. With him he signed the Concordat of 1801, through which he succeeded in guaranteeing religious freedom for Catholics living in France, and was present at his coronation as Emperor of the French in 1804. In 1809, however, during the Napoleonic Wars, Napoleon once again invaded the Papal States, resulting in his excommunication. Pius VII was taken prisoner and transported to France. He remained there until 1814 when, after the French were defeated, he was permitted to return to Rome, where he was greeted warmly as a hero and defender of the faith.

Pius lived the remainder of his life in relative peace. His papacy saw a significant growth of the Catholic Church in the United States, where Pius established several new dioceses. Pius VII died on 20 August 1823 at age 81.

In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI began the process towards canonizing him as a saint, and he was granted the title Servant of God.

Portrait of the Duchess of Polignac, a favourite Queen Marie Antoinette she was considered one of the great beauties of pre-Revolutionary society, but her extravagance and exclusivity earned her many enemies.
She escaped the guilotine but died in Austria in December 1793, shortly after hearing of the execution of Marie Antoinette.

For all your patriotic third estate flower arrangements. A little unexpected Revolutionary ceramic at the Sèvres museum, a bit fancier than most of the ones on display at Carnavalet. #frenchrevolution #frenchceramic #bouquetiere #latergram @biggerandredder

Another still of Robespierre and Saint-Just from the 1989 film « la Révolution Française . »

cake and coffee break after buying a little bit of casual summer reading. oh, the woes of a curious history student. (there's a reason behind this combination I promise. I wouldn't deviate from early modern history without reason!) #coffee #icedcoffee #books #reading #study #englishcivilwar #frenchrevolution #history
