Marriage and Revolution

On January 22 1793, the day after the king's execution, Roland resigns. Why, and why then? The documentary evidence is discussed. The family returns to rented lodgings, intending to return to the Beaujolais. But his enemies (e.g. Collot) have not forgotten Roland, and it is argued that the Revolutionary Tribual was first proposed at the Jacobins as a means of putting him on trial. With the treachery of Dumouriez in March, further accusations result in a search of the Roland's papers, which is discussed, as is the subsequent hostile Brival report. Why does the Convention fail to sign off his accounts?
