François Claudius Koenigstein also known as Ravachol was a French anarchist. He was guillotined at age 32 in 1892 after being found guilty of multiple crimes.

Ravachol became a romanticised symbol of desperate revolt and became glorified due to his implacable logic and his courage in front of the guillotine. A number of songs were composed in his honour, such as la Ravachole.

I find him fascinating and obviously, so damn handsome.

I’m sure someone has already submitted her, but I simply must express my undying love for Julie d’Aubigny/ La Maupin. Her life story is the wildest ride, my man. Dueling! Romance! Convent burning!
