In addition, Robespierre was one of the main driving forces behind the reign of terror, a 10 month post-revolutionary period in which mass executions were carried out.

Among people who were condemned by the revolutionary tribunals, about 8 percent were aristocrats, 6 percent clergy, 14 percent middle class, and 70 percent were workers or peasants accused of hoarding, evading the draft, desertion, rebellion, and other purported crimes.

The Terror took the lives of between 18,500 to 40,000 people, with 1,900 being killed in the last month. In an act of coincidental justice, Robespierre was guillotined without a trial in 1794.
