Maximilien Robespierre (Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre) was born on May 6th, , in Arras where his father was based as an advocate. Robespierre and his three younger siblings were brought up by diverse relatives after their father dramatically lost his way in life after the death of his wife in childbirth in Inevitably, Robespierre, intoxicated with power, overreached himself. By threatening to extend The Terror, he frightened many of those politicians who'd previously kept their heads down to side.

At last a book that gives a fair, and dare I say it, positive view of Robespierre. I have long been an admirer of The French Revolution and especially of Marat and the great Robespierre. Most books are sympathetic to the great orator Danton and to the poster boy of the revolution Camille Desmoulins/5.
