Mme Campan escaped, which has been stated only due to the fall of Robespierre. She lived in the end of her life at Mantes and died in 1822. Her Memoires sur la Vie privee de la Reine Marie-Antoinette published the year after her death. Of course, Madame Royale survived and her story is very much worthy of further reading. :wink:



i read that!!! but it was translated

Post Re: So who was guillotined?
I’m not sure where to post this question and I have searched through a lot of the topics so please excuse me if this is already in another thread... (and would appreciate re-direction)

I would like to know where exactly was the place where MA and Louis were guillotined – and was it the same spot?

We thought it may have been the Place de la Concorde? (Which was renamed from place de la revolution?) But not specifically where .... couldn’t find any information around that spot whilst there ....

Any help would be great!

I flipped through the site and the youngest person was in prison and they were 14 years old. And the oldest person who was either executed if I can recall was 96. I think.

The youngest person was 14 and he was condemned to 20 years in prison.


"SAINT - MARRY A.F ., 14-year-old, born in Paris, ex-nobleman, condemned in 20 years of imprisonment, and six hours of exhibition, waited its age, as persuaded to have declared itself enemy of the people, and been a party to the conspiracy of the prison of Luxembourg where he was detained."

However I have yet to remember the oldest person.

It is very strange, from a foreigners point of view, that there is so little information in a place of so much significance!

The reason maybe is that it is a place that is so versatile that there has been different purposes had been intended at different times. For instance it could have been a market. While you think that Marie Antoinette was guilitoned there, some one else would think " Oh. That's where the old market used to be."
