      Two centuries after the French Revolution, Maximilien Robespierre is still regarded as its towering figure. Perceived by some as the champion, indeed the incarnation, of the Revolution's purest and noblest ideals, among others he will always be remembered as the reasoned advocate of the Terror, the defender of mass killing during the Revolution's darkest and most tragic phase.

      Augustin Robespierre led up the steps to the guillotine on 28 July Augustin was with his brother in the hall of the Convention on the day of 9 Thermidor (27 July ), when the deputies voted for the arrest of Robespierre, Saint-Just and Couthon after a heated discussion. Louis-Antoine-Léon de Saint-Just was born in central France, the son of a cavalry captain. His mother, the daughter of a wealthy local notary and a woman of egalitarian notions, wished to reduce the nobility to the level of the middle class. The family eventually moved to Blérancourt, a rural town.
