Louis XVI document signed, dated 16 August 1790. Signed ''Louis'' in bold, black ink, document is written in old French with ornate ink flourishes and an royal emblem along the left edge. Three years after Louis signs this document, he was sent to the guillotine as the only King of France ever to be executed. Caught up in the French Revolution, Louis XVI was suspended and arrested as part of the insurrection of 10 August 1792, just one month before the constitutional monarchy was abolished and a republic declared. He was tried by the National Convention, found guilty of high treason, and executed by guillotine on 21 January 1793. Document on one page is partially laid down and has toning throughout; overall in very good condition.
