1 min read

Even though this new device was effective, and not that popular, within months it would be in almost constant use, killing people in their thousands. In fact, within a month of its first use, one of the inventors of the guillotine was killed by guillotine. Antoine Louis, the man who invented the device would become one of its victims during the initial phase of the Reign of Terror. The man who it was named after, Dr Joseph Ignace Guillotin, although being condemned to die at the hands of Maximillien Robespierre, escaped its clenches and died of natural causes many years later.
