Golden arches

The vaulted ceiling of the Conciergerie Prison in Paris where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned in August 1793 - later on, she was taken from here and beheaded. Strangely enough, she is famous mainly because of the beheading. Her public life was a shambles, not because she was a bad queen, but because the press often involved her in scandles (almost all of which were untrue). Who is your favourite figure or monarch in history?

Nice, but maybe more of the arch on the right into the frame, so that you have three arches instaead to two and abit.

Very nice picture. Not too good on French History, so I will reserve my comments on the monarch. I do like the arches though.

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
