So I found this book that has articles about important historical figures. I tried to find Robespierre in this book and look where I finally found him. In a chapter about people who misused their power. There he is besides Ivan the Terrible, Hitler and Stalin. Yeah… Just the right spot for him…

My honey is so upset about this :D
