On this day in history, October 16th 1793, the Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, is guillotined after being found guilty of high treason by the Revolutionary Tribunal. Marie Antoinette was the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Francis I and Maria Theresa. She married the heir apparent to the French throne in 1770, and upon Louis-Auguste's ascension, she became Queen. Marie initially was popular with the people, but she gradually fell out of their favour. She was accused of promiscuity and of harbouring sympathies for one of France's greatest enemies, her home, Austria. In addition to this, she was a notorious spendthrift, to the point that many blamed the whole of France's economic problems on her. The decision to execute the king and queen marked an important turning point in the Revolution. Mere revolution was different than regicide, and with this radical decision, the leadership further alienated supporters from their cause and moved closer to a revolution of extreme radicalism. The usurpation of the Revolution by the radical element along with its resulting radical policies caused the Revolution to implode, as men who once supported the Revolution saw it turn into another extreme necessary of overthrow and abolition.

October 16, 1793 – Execution of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, at the Place de la Révolution in Paris, France.
Born Maria Antonia, better known as Marie Antoinette, was the last Queen of France before the French Revolution. She was born an Archduchess of Austria, and was the penultimate child of Empress Maria Theresa and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor. She married the Dauphin in April 1770, who in 1774, became Louis XVI of France. Despite her initial popularity, a growing number of the population eventually came to dislike her, accusing her of being profligate, promiscuous, and of harbouring sympathies for France's enemies, particularly her native Austria. The Affair of the Diamond Necklace damaged her reputation further. During the Revolution, she became known as Madame Déficit because the country's financial crisis was blamed on her lavish spending.
During the Revolution, after the government had placed the royal family under house arrest in the Tuileries Palace in October 1789, several events linked to Marie Antoinette, in particular the June 1791 attempted flight to Varennes and her role in the War of the First Coalition, had disastrous effects on French popular opinion. On 10 August 1792, the attack on the Tuileries forced the royal family to take refuge at the Assembly, and on 13 August the family was imprisoned in the Temple. On 21 September 1792, the monarchy was abolished. After a two-day trial begun on 14 October 1793, Marie Antoinette was convicted by the Revolutionary Tribunal of high treason.
Preparing for her execution, she put on a plain white dress, white being the color worn by widowed queens of France. Her hair was shorn, her hands bound painfully behind her back and she was put on a rope leash.
Marie Antoinette was guillotined at 12:15 p.m. on 16 October 1793. Her last words were "Pardon me, sir, I meant not to do it", to the executioner, whose foot she had accidentally stepped on after climbing to the scaffold. Her body was thrown into an unmarked grave in the Madeleine cemetery.
Both Marie Antoinette's and Louis XVI's bodies were exhumed in 1815, during the Bourbon Restoration and reburied at the Basilica of St. Denis.

A Sneak Peek Of Our French Revolution Play!

Learning about the causes of the French Revolution and the class system with a fun simulation. The third estate has to sit on the floor and hold on to the table leg with their dominant hand and “farm”. If the hail (ball of paper) touches them then they had a bad harvest and can’t make ends meet and they have to lie down. #boom #frenchrevolution #thirdestate #iamthesunking

a little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now #whosthere #frenchrevolution

"the declaration of the rights of man and citizen" ahhh I love history..💕

The Storming of the Bastille marks the start of the French Revolution. This took place on July 14th, 1789. The Bastille was a French royal fortress where prisoners and weapons were held. The fortress was a target for the revolutionaries and later was mobbed by an armed crowd. (#Bastille #social #political #1789 #FrenchRevolution)

The general consensus seems to be I have corpse hands.

Помимо многих интересных мест, конечно не могла пройти мимо любимой Galerie Lafayette. Куда же без небольшого шоппинга на День рождения?!🛍

Вчера на экскурсии в Лувре обсуждали с экскурсоводом отношение французов к большим брендам. Со времен французской революции жители Франции не симпатизируют ничему дорогому и слишком элегантному, видя в этом серьезное расслоение общества. Так, в столице красоты и моды большинство с презрением относятся к известным брендам, в том числе когда они финансируют крупные события, реконструкцию известных исторических зданий, реставрацию произведений искусства. "Мы и без этих денег проживем!" - об этом свидетельствуют заявления в парижских газетах.🗞⠀

Мне кажется, это было у Франсуазы Саган, в одном из ее произведений, когда нищий любовник предлагает своей девушке лечь под нож неопытного студента-хирурга, а не с помощью обеспеченных друзей воспользоваться услугами врачей в дорогостоящей больнице без необходимости оплачивать эти услуги. О да, конечно, там были и другие мотивы, не без этого.
Ничто не достается нам даром, но стоит ли пренебрегать жизнью человека или жизнью произведения искусства для того, чтобы сказать потом, что мы обошлись без чужих денег и без чужой помощи?! Ваше мнение?⠀

Вот так милый пост про День рождения превратился в точку зрения, не самую притом популярную:)⠀

Liberty guinding the people
A Liberdade guiando o povo
La Liberté guidant le peuple

It is a painting by Eugène Delacroix in commemoration of the July Revolution of 1830. A woman representing Liberty guides the people over the bodies of the defeated, wielding the tricolor flag of the French Revolution in one hand and brandishing a musket with a bayonet in the other.
