Jardin des Tuleries-72dpi-800w

On October 6, 1789, as the French Revolution be an, King Louis XVI was brought against his will to the Tuileries Palace, located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde, Paris.
Queen Marie Antoinette and the Dauphin were allowed to promenade in the Jardin des Tuileries on the evening of September 18, 1791, during the festival organized to celebrate the new French Constitution, when the alleys of the park were illuminated with pyramids and rows of lanterns. How terrifying her thoughts might had been.
