Louis XVI or Louis-Auguste   de France (Versailles, 23 August 1754 - Paris, 21 January   1793) ruled as King of France and of Navarre from 1774 until 1791, and   then as King of the French from 1791 to 1793. Suspended and arrested   during the Insurrection of 10 August, he was tried by the National   Convention, found guilty of treason, and executed by guillotine on 21   January 1793. He was the only king of France to be executed.

Although Louis was beloved at first, his   indecisiveness and conservatism led some elements of the people of   France to eventually view him as a symbol of the perceived tyranny of   the Ancien Regime. After the abolition of the monarchy in 1793, the new   republican government gave him the surname Capet, a reference to the   nickname of Hugh Capet, founder of the Capetian dynasty, which the   revolutionaries wrongly interpreted as a family name. He was also   informally nicknamed Louis le Dernier (Louis the Last), a   derisive use of the traditional nicknaming of French kings. Today,   historians and French people in general have a more nuanced view of   Louis XVI, who is seen as an honest man with good intentions, but who   was probably unfit for the herculean task of reforming the monarchy, and   who was used as a scapegoat by the revolutionaries.
