Months ago, I saw a post relating an anecdote about how one time Maximilien Robespierre was walking in a procession (with Lindet, maybe? I think that’s who I was trying to draw?) and someone handed him her baby.

Apparently this happened a lot, because my fruitless attempts to re-find the post by Googling various combinations of “Robespierre given baby” turned up other instances of surprise baby presentation, but not the one I wanted.

This one stood out, though, because Robespierre somehow ended up stuck holding the baby for a few minutes as he walked, which is one of the most entertaining mental images I’ve had this year.

The only such incident I’ve ever heard of was with Pétion on the last day of the Constituante. Cf. notably the accounts of the Révolutions de Paris and the Patriote français (both available on Gallica).
