Ludvig den 16. ble giljotinert
Kong Ludvig den 16. av Frankrike ble giljotinert på Place de la Révolution (nåværende Place de la Concorde) i Paris. Nasjonalkonventet kjente ham skyldig for landssvik med 683 stemmer av 721 den 15. januar 1793. Dagen etter ble han dømt til døden med 361 stemmer mot 360.

Den avsatte kongen opptrådte med stor verdighet under rettssaken, og selv om han var resignert var han var fremdeles verdig da han steg opp på skafottet. Han holdt en kort tale der han tilga «... de som er årsaken til min død ...» Han erklærte seg deretter uskyldig for det han var anklaget for og uttrykte håp om at blodet hans ikke skulle falle tilbake på Frankrike. Mange øyenvitner mener at den dødsdømte kongen ønsket å si mer, men general Antoine-Joseph Santerre fra Nasjonalgarden avbrøt ham med en trommevirvel. Kongen ble deretter raskt giljotinert.

    During the last couple of months svartkrutt.net has been regularly updated. The most important changes are done in the English section. The Norwegian and English pages are now quite similar regarding content, and all articles are translated to English.

    I also want to urge everyone that still uses the ancient Internet Explorer version 6 to upgrade to version 7. Version 6 is not supported on these pages anymore, and the layout may look strange if you are using this browser. You can also upgrade to, for example, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome or Safari.

    Below is a list with the most important updates changes this autumn.

    • Forum and chat: Upgraded with the latest versions.
    • Search enhancements: A new search box with about 500 predefined alternatives is added to the front page. Note: The alternatives drop-down does not work with the Safari browser.
    • Translations: All articles are translated to English.
    • A couple of new pages are added: About this site, Movies, Links, News archive and Contact.
    • Articles: The article main page is updated
    • Sharing: It is now possible to share articles, news and other content on Facebook and delicious.
    • Printing: A new print icon is added on the articles with printer friendly versions of the articles. Printer friendly means that background colours, menus and similar graphical elements are removed from the print.
    • Language selector: It is now possible to select language on all articles (Norwegian-English or English-Norwegian)
    • Menus: New menu layout for articles that extends over two or more parts.

    • New menu
    • Layout: Some minor layout changes, for example, on the index page and on the top menu.
    • The Black Powder Book page: The page is rewritten and enhanced.
    • Validation: svartkrutt.net now validates according to the W3C-standard.
