Top 10 People Who Lost Their Heads

Blue_Devereaux
Who were executed or murdered by beheading? Henry VIII was forever having people beheaded, including a couple of his queen consorts. His daughters, Mary I (aka Bloody Mary) and Elizabeth I, were no slouches in the "off with her head" department either. Then there were the French.

The Top Ten

1 Marie Antoinette (1793 in the French Revolution) Marie Antoinette (1793 in the French Revolution)

I'll choose This one because I recall the name from school!

This is an odd list haha but unique - Curti2594

I think more people lost their heads in the French Revolution than in the rest of history. Thanks Dr. Guillotin.
And Max Robespierre.

2 Anne Boleyn (1536 by Henry VIII) Anne Boleyn (1536 by Henry VIII) Anne Boleyn was Queen of England from 1533 to 1536 as the second wife of King Henry VIII, and Marquess of Pembroke in her own right.

Anne boleyn would make an awesome queen, she should be one of the most famous woman of all time

AKA The Headless Ghost.

3 Lady Jane Grey (1554 by Mary I)

Queen for nine days.

4 Mary, Queen of Scots (1587 by Elizabeth I)
5 Louis XVI (1793 in the French Revolution)
6 Charles I of England (1649 by Oliver Cromwell)

Well, at the end, he had the same doomed fate with his grandmother Mary Stuart (Mary Queen of Scots). Like grandmother, like... Grandson!

Dethroned and executed! Democracy won! - Kiteretsunu

7 Catherine Howard (1542 by Henry VIII)
8 Sir Walter Raleigh (1618 by James I)
9 Saint Sir Thomas More (1535 by Henry VIII)

I'm sure he now live in Utopia. - keyson
