1. "On September 23, 1793, the King traveled from Versailles to a hunting lodge. The front wheel of his carraige hit a rock in the road, causing the coach to pitch to one side. Louis' head struck an ivory handle, causing him some pain but apparently little else. Two hours later, while alighting from the carriage, he fell to the ground, dead from the head injury." Sobel, p. 59.
