Anne de Lamoignon de Malesherbes, the comtesse Sénozan, was
the sister of William Lamoignon-Malesherbes, one of the men who defended
Louis XVI at his trial. Anne, who had been under house arrest since
1793 for having ‘suspicious connections,’ was brought to trial in May of
1794 with a group of other prisoners. This group included the sister of
Louis XVI, Madame Elisabeth.
All were found guilty of “conspiracy against the Revolution” and sentenced to death. Anne was 75 years old.
