In this episode, we follow King Louis XVI of France through the last eighteen hours of his life, from the moment he is issued his sentence by the revolutionary government of France, to his tearful farewell to his family, to his last seconds on the scaffold. All this is learned from the primary source account written by Henry Essex Edgeworth, the King’s final priest and confessor.
