Mirabeau by C215, Illustres! : C215 autour du Panthéon.

Honoré Gabriel Riqueti, Count of Mirabeau, commonly known as Mirabeau, was an early leader of the French Revolution. His death in 1791 led to the conversion of the Panthéon into a mausoleum for France’s greats and he was buried there on April 4, 1791. Known as a moderate advocating for a constitutional monarchy his remains were removed from the Panthéon in 1794 as result of the discovery, at the 1792 Trial of Louis XVI, that he’d acted as a paid agent for the king.
