Princesse de Lamballe was a friend and confidant of Queen Marie-Antoinette. During the Revolution she was imprisoned and refused to swear against the King. Because of this, she was torn apart by a deranged street mob at the corner of rue Saint Antoine and rue Pavee. Her impaled head was paraded north through the streets of the Marais to the Temple Prison where the Queen was being held and exhibited under her window.
