How did Marie Antoinette die and where was she buried?
Marie Antoinette was executed by guillotine by French Revolutionaries on October 16th 1793. She was beheaded after a short two day trial by the new French Republic which found her guilty of high treason. She was then buried beside her husband, Louis XVI, in an unmarked grave just outside of Paris. Upon the collapse of the French Republic and the reinstating of the French monarchy under Louis XVIII, the bodies were recovered and reburied in St. Denis in 1815, where they still remain to this day.
