On this very day 220 years ago, Marie Antoinette was executed on Place de la Concorde in Paris. She was found guilty of treason the morning of October 16 1793, and was beheaded at 12.15 that very day. She was just weeks before her 38 th Birthday, and her Husband had already been executed as well.
They cut her hair and wheeled her out hoping to humiliate her, but she remained dignified and regal till the very end. Nobody can deny the fact anyone capable of remaining regal moments before an execution is truly extra ordinary. One of my favorite quotes by her is, ” Trial and tribulation first show you who are”
A true Queen till the very end.
