Well, if you're going to die, at least insult your enemy's intelligence because no matter what, you've won in the end.

Georges Danton, who was also executed during the French Revolution, supposedly told the executioner just before he died, "Make sure to show my head to the people. It is well worth seeing."

He also defended himself so well during his trial that the court got annoyed with him and refused to let him speak.

Le marquis de Favras was not sentenced to the guillotine, he was hanged. The first known execution by guillotine was in 1792, I believe.

Somehow, I can't imagine he's the first person in recorded history to correct someone's spelling. Not that an obscure, unimportant tidbit like that would be easily searchable, but I just somehow doubt 1790 is the first time anyone ever went on record saying, "Yo, you spelled that wrong."
