The Martyr King

Today is the 214th anniversary of the martyrdom of His Most Christian Majesty, Louis XVI, by the Grace of God, King of France and Navarre. The top picture to the left is, of course, a formal portrait of His Most Christian Majesty in his State Robes. The lower picture is of the execution by an anonymous artist, with a tip of the Red Beret to Tiberge at GalliaWatch.

Tiberge's post at GalliaWatch.

From Tea At Trianon, a post on the reforms he introduced in an attempt ameliorate the lot of his people. Not enough, since the freemasonic Revolution had already determined his over throw and death! The Reforms of Louis XVI.

Also from Tea At Trianon, Mme Vidal's post on the death of the King. Death of Louis XVI.

And, his last words, also from Tea At Trianon. Last Words of Louis XVI.

A brief biography from an Anglican source: Online Anglican Resources

From the 1911 ed. of the Encyclopædia Britannica.

From Wikipedia.

All over France today Masses were celebrated in his memory. May God use their graces for the Holy Souls in need, since I am convinced that, whether l'abbé Edgeworth actually cried out, "Ascend to heaven, son of St Louis!" (See "Death of Louis XVI", from Tea At Trianon,) it happened and he is in no need of our prayers. May his prayers and the prayers of all the martyrs of the Revolution help to bring about the defeat of the Revolution, the instauration of the Social Reign of the Sacred Heart of Christ the King and the Immaculate Heart of the Most Holy Mother of God, Mary our Queen, in France and throughout the world, and the restoration to the Throne of his Forefathers of the Legitimate King of France and Navarre, His Most Christian Majesty, Louis XX!

Vive la France! Vive le roi!

May God prosper the return of the monarchs to their thrones and to the Church, and me he protect them always in the years to come.

Sympathy for overthrown monarchies helped to convert me to this faith, and among those royals, Louis XVI was near the top. Whatever Robesperre et al gained from that bitter day, it is from that event's horror destined to be lost, and retrubution will one day be doled out by the Man they wished was never conceived!
