Datebook: August 13 - King Louis XVI Declared an Enemy of the People 220 Years Ago

Aug 13, 2012

Louis the 16th had the misfortune of being king around the time the French had enough of absolute monarchy. His assistance in the American Revolution and a series of domestic reforms led France into a financial crisis which erupted into the French Revolution. As a result, Louis was arrested and executed by guillotine - the only French king ever to be executed.
