You don't have to worry, no one will tell you off. He looks so sad and you can see just how miserable he was before he was murdered, I believe this was drawn three days before his execution.

He was surprisingly calm before the execution, one historian on the TV had said “he ate very well and had a good night sleep.” I don’t know had he said or wrote this: I beg my wife to forgive me for all the harm I done her/ or /for all the troubles she may had experienced during our marriage.

(To my mind) i think that it is quite a realistic portrait of what he looked like. And its of course a very emotional picture too. Just a man in a terrible situation ...

He looks so haggard and careworn. The feeling or feelings I'm getting is from his eyes he looks mournful, or like he is pleading. It is poignant.

Ehh, Peasant*

The thoughts and emotions, are endless.

Louis was strangely calm even in the worst situation...I think it was part of his charachter. The lines you quoted, Marja Vera, belonged to his testament, I think.

And those words are very interesting… I don’t think they were only connected to the revolution and the misery she had experienced as the kings wife. I think those words have deeper, more private meaning. :idea:

Yes, I also think so. They were not connected, or not oly, to the Revolution. I was also touched by them
