Lady Gaga my ass... In the aftermath of the French Revolution ornate carriages reappeared on the streets of Paris the day after the execution (28 July 1794) of Maximilien Robespierre, which brought an end to the Reign of Terror and signalled the commencement of the Thermidorian Reaction.
Ornate carriages reappeared on the streets of Paris the day after the execution (28 July 1794) of Maximilien Robespierre, which brought an end to the Jacobin-era Committee of Public Safety and signaled the commencement of the Thermidorian Reaction. There were masters and servants once more in Paris, and the city erupted in a furor of pleasure-seeking and entertainment. Theaters thrived, and popular music satirized the excesses of the Revolution
Following the fall of the Robespierres in the July 1794 Thermidorian Reaction, Bonaparte was put under house arrest at Nice for his association with the brothers.[note 5] He was released within two weeks and due to his technical skills was asked to draw-up plans to attack Italian positions in the context of France's war with Austria. He also took part in an expedition to take back Corsica from the British, but the French were repulsed by the Royal Navy.
Anne Marie Louise de Domangeville, the comtesse de Pange; Anne Marie was among the men and women sentenced to die along with Madame Elisabeth on May 10th, 1794. At the time, Anne Marie believed that she may have been pregnant; Madame Elisabeth convinced Anne Marie to report this to the court, and she was granted a stay of execution. She was released from prison after the Thermidorian Reaction.[photo: Daderot]
