Trial of Louis XVI



Here is an excerpt from the trial of Louis XVI in December of 1792. It is interesting to note the brevity and acuity of the king's answers, which once again give lie to the myth that he was a weak-minded idiot. Share

Poor King! By the way, might you consider posting more on the trial, and on those involved (Malesherbes, Desèze, etc.)?

I might later in the year but in the meantime, some of it is covered in the novel Trianon.
