Louis XVI was prevented by the inability and unwillingness to resolve the contradictions that developed in the country in time, namely: the food crisis that gripped the country, unemployment among the urban lower classes. After the rebellion on October 5 and 6, he moved to Paris and fell into complete apathy; power and influence increasingly passed to the constituent assembly. In fact, he no longer reigned, but was present, now adapting to the new order, then reacting against them in the form of secret appeals for help to foreign powers. In June 1791, Louis XVI made an attempt to escape with his family to Lorraine; the fugitives were detained in Jam and returned under guard to Paris. On September 14, 1791, Louis XVI took the oath of the new constitution, but continued to negotiate with emigrants and foreign powers, even when he officially threatened them through his Girondins ministry, and on April 22, 1792, with tears in his eyes, declared war on Austria. The refusal of Louis XVI to authorize the decree of the assembly against emigrants and rebellious priests and the removal of the patriotic ministry imposed on him caused a movement on June 20, 1792, and his proven relations with foreign states and emigrants led to the August 10 uprising and the overthrow of the monarchy (September 21), Louis XVI was – concluded with his family in Temple and charged with plotting against freedom of the nation and in a number of attempts against the security of the state, on January 11, 1793, the trial of the king in the Convention began. Louis XVI behaved with great dignity and, not content with the speeches of his chosen defenders, he himself defended himself against the accusations made against him, referring to the rights given to him by the constitution. On January 20, he was sentenced to death by a majority of 383 votes against 310. Louis XVI with great calmness listened to the verdict and on January 21 ascended the scaffold.
