Robespierre and the Reign of Terror
Maximillion Robespierre rose in rank in the Commity of Public Safety, leading the revolution. Believing that fear was the way to create liberty, he installed a policy of swift, harsh justice stating that all who are criminal must be executed. This policy and his staple of terror; the guilloteen, would end many lives and convict many others, ultimately provoking fear amoung all the French. the terror only came to an end when the head of Robespierre fell just like all those he convicted.
