Found inWikipedia, Nov. 10, 2014 (Marie-Anne Charlotte de Corday d'Armont; born 27 July 1768 in Saint-Saturnin-des-Ligneries, EĢcorches (present day Orne), Normandy, France; died 17 July 1793; known to history as Charlotte Corday; a figure of the French Revolution. In 1793, she was executed under the guillotine for the assassination of Jacobin leader Jean-Paul Marat, who was in part responsible, through his role as a politician and journalist, for the more radical course the Revolution had taken. More specifically, he played a substantial role in the political purge of the Girondins, with whom Corday sympathized. His murder was memorialized in a celebrated painting by Jacques-Louis David which shows Marat after Corday had stabbed him to death in his bathtub)
