Marriage and Revolution

Oxford University Press

On 20 June 1791, Louis XVI and his family, rejecting cooperation, flee the Tuileries Palace. The idea of a republic gains ground among Parisians. After the king's arrest at Varennes, the Rolands witness weeks of resulting turmoil: pro-monarchy Feuillants secede from the Jacobins; a Cordelier petition on the Champ de Mars in July is repressed by troops, killing dozens and injuring many. During the wave of arrests, the Rolands help protect certain radicals. The Constitution is patched up, with the king taking the oath. Roland succeeds in his financial mission on Lyon's behalf, so hopes to be elected a deputy to the new Assembly.
