The character I chose for my French Revolution, Hero or Villain? was Georges Danton. I believe that he was a hero, but he was not like the other members of the Revolutionary party and later government that was so gungho or bloodthirsty. He usurped the king instead through more unorthodox methods that didn’t actually involve him. He was important in rallying the French people against the threat of Prussia when it was on France’;s doorstep and required serious thought to the fact that they would have to move their capital from Paris. He would later go on to oppose the Reign of Terror and speak out against it and Maximillian Robespierre.  To which he was made an enemy of the revolution and was beheaded via guillotine.
