On May 22, 1791, three figures shook in the dark corridor of the duileri palace abandoned by the French royal family.
One of them was installing an iron door in a big hole cut in the wall.
His name was Garman.
He was a locksmith.
Another man who was passing tools to him was durey, the servant of King Louis XVI of France.
The third man, with a candle in his hand, lit up two people.
He was Louis XVI.
Their deeds are quite suspicious.
How could a dignified king have such behavior? It starts in 1774.
In May of that year, Louis XVI was promoted to the throne.
He faced a flawed and crumbling empire.
At this time, France was heavily in debt and the domestic situation was becoming increasingly tense.
Louis XVI tried to save this situation through reform, but failed.
The king, who had no ability to govern the country, simply ignored domestic political affairs and focused on recreation.
One of the ways of recreation was “locking”.
In fact, as early as when he was crown prince, his talent for making locks was revealed.
After becoming king, he decided to sprint to the top.
After many inquiries, he learned that there was a particularly magical locksmith Garman among the people, so he invited Garman to the palace and allowed Garman to enter and leave his bedroom freely.
Under the guidance of Garman, the level of Louis XVI lock advanced by leaps and bounds.
The locks he made are very creative and have different shapes.
Almost every lock is a work of art.
He once made locks into lively and lovely shapes such as carp, squirrel and duck.
There is a “salamander” lock.
After inserting the key and turning it for 3 turns, the “salamander” will spray water from its mouth.
Obviously, this is not just a lock, but a work of art.
If there is something good in the top, the bottom will follow.
Louis XVI’s hobby inspired many people.
They flattered the king with all kinds of locks.
In a parade to celebrate the birth of the prince, someone even carried out a special “big lock”.
Open the “big lock” door, and a lovely “Little Prince” comes out of it.
State affairs had long withered, and Louis XVI did not care.
Therefore, in 1789, the citizens of Paris captured the Bastille prison, which symbolized the feudal rule of France.
On October 6, Parisian civilians came to Versailles and asked Louis XVI to return to Paris.
The people of Paris demanded that he establish a constitutional monarchy.
Louis XVI agreed on the surface, but secretly wanted to suppress the revolution.
He wrote privately to the European courts to grant the cession of French territory and asked them to send troops to help him.
However, the monarchs could not reach an agreement on sending troops.
Louis XVI decided to run away after waiting for many days.
Before escaping, Louis XVI stored many secret edicts, oracles and letters with other European countries in the most reliable and confidential place.
So, there was the first scene.
After making a detailed plan, Louis XVI, his wife and others ran out of the duileri Palace on the night of June 20, 1791.
On the 22nd, Louis XVI and his party ran to Warren, where they were besieged and intercepted.
Louis XVI had to surrender and was taken back to Paris.
The two-day journey from Valen to Paris took four days.
Because everywhere Louis XVI went, he would be ridiculed and denounced by the local people, “scoundrel!” “Stupid pig!” Such curses were heard all the time, and some brave people spit at him.
Louis XVI felt wronged.
In his opinion, running away was his own business.
The whole of France was in the hands of the revolutionaries, who fled just to save his life.
The behavior of these people really baffled him.
In fact, people hate him because the big hole he dug was told to the revolutionaries by Garman, his most trusted locksmith.
The revolutionaries took out the most critical document from it: Louis XVI actually asked foreign countries to send troops to France to suppress the revolutionaries.
In December 1792, Louis XVI began his trial.
In front of him was the iron box taken out from the big hole.
The judge asked him, “you want to buy several representatives of the constituent assembly and the Legislative Council with a large amount of money.
What can you say about this?” Louis XVI said: “several people have put forward such ideas to me, but I didn’t agree.
” The judge asked, “who are they?” Louis XVI said, “I don’t know much about these people.
I can’t remember their names now.
” The judge asked, “who do you want to give the money to?” Louis XVI said, “I never gave money to anyone.
” But the judge had the evidence taken out of his iron box.
Louis XVI opened his eyes and saw his letters with those people, but said, “this is not my handwriting.
” The judge had to ask the most fundamental question: “did you hide the big iron box?” Louis XVI replied, “I don’t know anything about it.
Someone wants to frame me.
” Anyone, including Louis XVI himself, knew that he was dying.
On the morning of January 21, 1793, thousands of soldiers and dozens of cannons guarded the execution ground, and tens of thousands of Parisians came to watch Louis XVI beheaded.
Louis XVI was pulled onto the guillotine and looked at the glittering triangular knife on it (when the guillotine was invented, it was originally a straight knife.
Louis XVI modified it into a triangular knife because it was often rolled when cutting people).
He wanted to cry.
On the execution ground, when the executioner wanted to bind him, he stared at the man and told him, “I’m the king.
I don’t need to be bound.
” The priest told him that Jesus was also bound during the crucifixion, and he agreed.
Then he left the ring, pulled a few strands of hair as a relic, stretched his neck and put it on the wooden yoke.
The priest said, “the son of St.
Louis has ascended to heaven!” As soon as the executioner pulled the rope, the triangular knife fell, and Louis XVI’s head was different.
[cool review] men are afraid of entering the wrong industry and women are afraid of marrying the wrong man.
This story tells us with the fact of blood: as a man, how important it is to choose his career accurately! Choose the right, happy life.
If you make a wrong choice, for example, if you are clearly suitable to be a locksmith but become a king, you may suffer from depression and world weariness, or even disaster.
The choice is wrong, and the efforts are in vain.
