Marie Antoinette should not have been executed because of the false image of her, the King’s actions and crimes she did not commit.

The court that testified against Antoinette went so far as to create false evidence that was used against
Maximilien Francois Marie Isidore de Robespierre was elected by the National convention, and was leader of the ‘twelve-man Committee of Public safety’, which governed France at the climax of its revolution. Rapidly, the committee had forced upon its country policies, in hopes of stabilizing the French economy as well as the creation of a stronger and more successful French army. It started a number of counter-revolutionary uprisings, unleashing the Reign of Terror. However, Maximilien Robespierre was not father of the French Revolution, in fact, he was an unimportant character until 1791, and only became significant to the French revolution during his rise to power in 1793. Robespierre had been known by his peers as ‘the incorruptible’.
In conclusion, Jefferson was a principled leader who followed his morals.

Based on the information in these documents, Jefferson stood out as a principled leader, who wanted to do what he believed was
The author of the source further cites a contrasting view by mentioning that Voltaire believed that the black race was inferior to the white race. This emphasises Voltaire’s contrasting ideas in scientific socialism and political socialism. This source differs from others as it also features elements of his last questionable words before his inevitable death and how it was unrecognised by the Catholic Church by denying him a proper burial. In the source, he has mentioned to have supported ideas of anti-Semitism and
It did to Javert in the book Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, and is the reason why Jean Valjean is the reason Javert had no other choice than to take his own life. When Valjean has Javert trapped in the barracaid he tells him “you are free” (pg. 264) but reality was that those words really made Javert a prisoner of his own mind. Javert believed that once a criminal always a criminal, and that all criminals wanted revenge and would do anything to get it. That took a big turn when He was proven wrong by Valjean when he didn’t take revenge on him and set him free because it went against all of his beliefes that’s why Javert told Valjean to “take your revenge” (pg.
Marie-Antoinette did not have a close relationship with the king and instead bid her time with extravagant parties, gambling, and material items (Bienvenu). Supposedly, Marie-Antoinette did not become politically active until the beginning of the French Revolution, opposing reforms that would take away royal absolute power ("Marie-Antoinette"). The French government was going downhill as finances were poor and the people were starving. Many of the French people grew angry with Marie-Antoinette's careless lifestyle. On October 6, 1789, a crowd stayed outside of the Palace of Versailles, demanding that the royal family move to Paris.
Why save someone while ruining the lives of multiple others? It’s a simple question which is presented every time Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It’s unfortunate, however, that Jean Valjean didn’t think his decisions all the way through, particularly the decision to save Champmathieu. Jean Valjean made the wrong decision when he went to the court to save Champmathieu because he ruined the lives of factory workers, is unable to help the common folk, and put his life on the line for someone who couldn’t give much back to society. In both the theatrical and literary version, Jean Valjean explains how much these factory workers depend on him to live and provide for their family.

“Death is not the greatest loss in life.The greatest loss is what dies while still alive.” This quote by 2pac relates to the tragedy of Julius Caesar.Caesar had so much potential and did many things for Rome. Caesar was murdered for the sole fact that others were afraid of a tyrant running Rome. I think that Caesar did not deserve to be murdered for the fact that he had a different view than other people. In (act II,scene 1,line 32-34) the text says “And therefore think him as a serpent’s egg which,hatched,would as his kind grow mischievous and kill him in the shell.” This text is saying that he is evil and should be killed.Conspirators should not have killed Caesar.Just because someone has different views and opinions that you don't like you can't murder them for that.Murder should not have been the answer to this situation.Especially to someone that had helped Rome and their military by conquering and expanding their empire. Brutus says in (act II,scene 1 line 20-25) Caesar might act like a tyrant and turn on the people that helped him get that
Marie also had a brief moment on the balcony before her husband, as the crowd thirsted for her blood. This was to be their last time in Versailles. From then on, they were to become royal prisoners in Paris. In January 1793, the current National Assembly, or Convention voted on Louis’s punishment.
