With problems besetting the young republic, the Convention had to end the contentious trial of Louis XVI. How would the trial proceed? Who would determine the King’s guilt and punishment? When would the judgment take effect? These are just some of the many questions the deputies grappled with as they dealt with the King’s conviction and sentencing.
This episode explores the Convention’s votes on the King’s guilt, the proposed appeal to the people, and the punishment for the King. It also introduced the important revolutionary Bertrand Barère.
