I believe it includes Le Bas, Eleonore, Saint Just, and Robespierre.

I'm incapable of resisting. 1) Robespierre and Éléonore Duplay, 2) 19th century (take that as you will).

Once again, this is far more than three sentences. XD But that’s how I roll.

It’s also sad. In this 19th century AU, Robespierre was too ill to make his speech on 8 Thermidor and so he implored Saint-Just to do it for him (against S-J’s better judgment), so the Thermidorian Reaction went on as it had, only without Robespierre. Instead, he was subjected to being dragged out to watch the executions of his friends and brother.

We were five children: four daughters, Éléonore, Sophie, Victoire, Élisabeth; one brother named Maurice: he was the youngest of the family. My eldest sister was promised to Robespierre; my sister Sophie married M. Auzat, lawyer in Issoire, in Auvergne, under the Constituent; my sister Victoire never married. I married Philippe Le Bas.

Elisabeth Le Bas, Memoirs

I don’t know how I missed this but I thought I’d put it up. Yes, I missed this.

We’ve all done it.

Hush.

  1. revwarheart said: Did not Elisabeth Duplay have some things to say for her sister’s relationship to Robespierre?

If I recall she was virtually silent on the matter. She reported that Eleanore took care of her while she was with her child in…

This is all she says: “Ma sœur aînée était promise à Robespierre.” But she makes it pretty clear in her memoirs that she’s only telling her own story and barely talks about her family at all when they don’t intersect with it, as it were. (The above phrase comes from a brief note on her siblings and isn’t part of the narrative of her memoirs.)

Thanks for straightening that out, you two! I have a notoriously bad memory. XD
