Within the French Revolution, there were many forms of leadership that were inevitably turned upon such as Louis XVI Napoleon end and then eventually Robespierre. All of these leaders took very different stances yet they all were killed by their people. Robespierre was the leader of the revolution in my opinion and was the main reason it spread through France as well as it did. If it wasn't for him and Maret the revolution wouldn't have ended up like so. Prior to Robespierre joining the Jacobins, he was a lawyer, therefore, he had prior speak experience. Once joining the Jacobins he led the revolution through spreading the radical ideas through the group and created a political power that was capable enough to set the City of Paris into a frenzy. Robespierre's words were eventually his downfall and ironically shot himself in the jaw for it. After his unsuccessful suicide, he was killed at the guillotine which he did to himself since he was one of the main influences that caused the reign of terror/guillotine.
