    (July 27, 1768-July 17, 1793)
    Birth name is Marie Anne Charlotte Corday d'Armont
    Sympathized with the Girondist political movement
    Murdered Jean-Paul Marat (July 13, 1793)
    Executed by guillotine (1793)
    She initially supported the monarchy at the start of the French Revolution.
    She stabbed Jean-Paul Marat while he soaked in a bathtub.
    She had planned to kill Marat before the French Convention, just as Brutus had killed Caesar.
    Her action turned Marat into a martyr in the eyes of many.
    She refused a priest on the day of her execution.
    She was described as 'exceptionally beautiful.'
    She supported the moderate Girondists over radical Jacobins such as Robespierre.
    She killed Marat because he was largely responsible for the bloody Reign of Terror.
    Her 'trial' was a complete farce.
    She said at her trial: 'I killed one man to save 100,000.'
    She was beheaded only four days after her crime.
    She is seen as somewhat of a hero to many today.
