What are the effects of Louis XVI's execution on France? Did it result in more bloodshed?
Reminder that LXVI was trialed as a traitor and not as a tyrant, and that what the French Revolution brought forth was radical nationalism and not democracy (republicanism existed for centuries prior).
His death is the reason Europe Great power tried so hard to put down Napoleon, for the fear of having the same fate with Louis. So, Napoleon was forced to play Total war game in Legendary Hard mode because of this guy.
>because of this guy
Because of the revolutionary government, anyway. ... although if you think about it, his build up of the French army and navy is what allowed Napoleon to wage total war in the first place.
Damn Louis. Revolution probably wouldn't have happened if he hadn't helped in the American Revolution and totally drained the finances. He could have done so much more . he did a lot of good shit before they lopped off his head at least.
>enforced a "each patient gets their own bed" rule at the biggest hospitals in Paris to improve recovery and hospital conditions
>paid for every prison to have its own infirmary to reduce prison illness and death; started enforcing penalties for prisons that didn't pass hygiene and basic comfort standards (each prisoner had to have their own bed, had to have enough meat/bread, etc)
lots more but I'm lazy.
