IMPROVED ANSWER:

Marie Antoinette, was a very stubborn woman, who did not want to give up the throne as Queen of France. Instead of trying to rally the nation in support of a constitutional monarchy like that on England, Marie plotted to get military aid from other rulers of Europe, especially from her brother, Leopold II, of Austria. She refused to make any concessions at all to the revolutionists.

After an unsuccessful escape of the Royal Family of France, King Louis XVI, promised to accept a new constitution that limited his powers.

However, Marie now worked to get aid from abroad, and, when war with Austria and Prussia came in 1792, she passed military secrets on to the enemy. The people of France suspected such treason.

On August 10, 1792, they threw their rulers in prison. The king was suspended from office, and the monarchy was ended. Louis XVI died on the guillotine on January 21, 1793. Marie Antoinette was placed on trial on a charge of treason. She was executed on the guillotine on October 16, 1793.
