Cachet du général en chef de l’armée de l’Ouest (1794).
The Army of the West (armée de l’Ouest) was one of the French Revolutionary Armies. It was created on 1 August 1793 by merging the armée des côtes de Brest, the armée des côtes de La Rochelle, and the armée de Mayence, and was sent to fight the revolt in the Vendee.
On April 19th, 1770 Archduchess Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna of Austria was married by proxy to the Dauphin of France, Louis-Auguste. The ceremony took place in the Augustinian Church in Vienna, the same place that the bride was baptized, and her older brother, Archduke Ferdinand, stood in for the groom.

Are you implying my historical analysis was not imparcial?
Is that counterrevolution I hear in the background?
Has the defender of the people turned against it?!
If I have ever once betrayed the welfare of the people, may my head be struck justly from my shoulders!
Why do you detect sarcasm when I proclaim the most apparent of truths? Do you doubt your own assertions? Was it perhaps you who were being sarcastic? Is it perhaps you who should have your head struck justly from your shoulders?!
Maximilien Robespierre rockin’ out.
