This is the start of the slow agony of the greatest king of France, surrounded by his relatives and doctors. To Jacobins, the king's decapitation was the people's coronation.

At a trial on 17 January , the National Convention had convicted the king of high treason in a near-unanimous vote; while no one voted "not guilty", several deputies abstained. Ultimately, they condemned him to death by a simple majority. Often viewed as a turning point in both French and European history, Louis' death inspired various reactions around the world.

Flight to Varennes

The monarchy was abolished on September 21, ; later Louis and his queen consort, Marie-Antoinette , were guillotined on charges of counterrevolution. His sister Elizabeth would follow him to the guillotine. Louis XVI approved French military support for the American colonies in their successful struggle against the British , but the expense nearly bankrupted the country. Louis convened the Estates-General in an effort to solve his budget crisis, but by doing so he unwittingly sparked the French Revolution. Ultimately unwilling to cede his royal power to the Revolutionary government, Louis XVI was found guilty of treason and condemned to death. He was guillotined on January 21, His wife, Marie-Antoinette , was guillotined nine months later, and their son Louis XVII died at the age of 10 while imprisoned by the Revolutionary government.

Louis XVI attempted to work within the framework of his limited powers but won little support. For the next two years, the palace remained the official residence of the king. Prodded by the queen, Louis committed the family to a disastrous escape attempt from the capital to the eastern frontier on June 21, However this would have involved splitting up the royal family and Louis and Marie-Antoinette decided on the use of a heavy, conspicuous coach drawn by six horses. Due to the cumulative effect of a host of errors, which in and of themselves would not have condemned the mission to failure, the royal family was thwarted in its escape after Jean-Baptiste Drouet, the postmaster of Sainte-Menehould, recognized the king from his portrait.

Louis was officially arrested on August 13, and sent to the Temple, an ancient Paris fortress used as a prison. On 21 September, the National Assembly declared France to be a republic and abolished the monarchy. The Girondins were partial to keeping the deposed king under arrest, both as a hostage and a guarantee for the future. The more radical members — mainly the Commune and Parisian deputies who would soon be known as the Mountain — argued for Louis's immediate execution. The legal background of many of the deputies made it difficult for a great number of them to accept an execution without due process of some sort, and it was voted that the deposed monarch should be tried before the National Convention, the organ that housed the representatives of the sovereign people.

Execution of Louis XVI

Louis is executed on the 21st of January Then, the following August, Marie-Antoinette is transferred, alone, without her children or sister-in-law Madame Elisabeth, to the jail of La Conciergerie. It is located within the premises of the main Courthouse of Paris, next to the Revolutionary Tribunal. For an ordinary prisoner that would mean that trial is imminent. But Marie-Antoinette is no ordinary prisoner. She may have some value as a hostage in war negotiations with the Austrians, and the National Convention sends emissaries to that effect to the enemy. He is not ready to compromise the hopes of a victory against the French armies for the sake of an aunt he does not know.

 Да хватит тебе, Эдди! - Но, посмотрев в зеркало, он убедился, что это вовсе не его закадычный дружок. Лицо в шрамах и следах оспы. Два безжизненных глаза неподвижно смотрят из-за очков в тонкой металлической оправе. Человек наклонился, и его рот оказался у самого уха двухцветного.

 Должно быть, где-то замыкание. Желтый сигнал тревоги вспыхнул над шифровалкой, и свет, пульсируя, прерывистыми пятнами упал налицо коммандера. - Может, отключить его самим? - предложила Сьюзан. Стратмор кивнул. Ему не нужно было напоминать, что произойдет, если три миллиона процессоров перегреются и воспламенятся.

Мы узнали об этом лишь благодаря оперативности КОМИНТа.  - Стратмор внимательно посмотрел не.  - Я должен найти его партнера, прежде чем он узнает о смерти Танкадо.

Он не хотел, чтобы оно попало в АНБ. Но чего еще можно было ждать от Танкадо - что он сохранит кольцо для них, будучи уверенным в том, что они-то его и убили. И все же Сьюзан не могла поверить, что Танкадо допустил бы. Ведь он был пацифистом и не стремился к разрушению.

У нее даже перехватило дыхание. Почему. Сьюзан охватила паника. Она быстро проверила отчет программы в поисках команды, которая могла отозвать Следопыта, но ничего не обнаружила. Складывалось впечатление, что он отключился сам по .

В руке его поблескивал пистолет. Беккер, отступая к стене, вновь обрел способность мыслить четко и ясно. Он почувствовал жжение в боку, дотронулся до больного места и посмотрел на руку. Между пальцами и на кольце Танкадо была кровь. У него закружилась голова.

 Что ты здесь делаешь? - спросил Хейл, остановившись в дверях и с недоумением глядя на Сьюзан. Скорее всего он надеялся, что никого не застанет в Третьем узле. Сьюзан постаралась сохранить спокойствие. - Сегодня суббота, Грег. Могу задать тебе точно такой же вопрос. Однако она отлично знала, чем занимался Хейл. Он был законченным компьютерным маньяком.
