For some historians and biographers, Maximilien Robespierre (1758-94) was a great revolutionary martyr who succeeded in leading the French Republic to safety in the face of overwhelming military odds. This biography focuses on Robespierre's formative years and the development of an iron will in a frail boy conceived outside wedlock.
