Did people have there heads cut off during french revolution?

The guillotine was the finest execution device available at the time. It was fast acting and virtually painless since it killed you in the "twinkling of an eye". It was low maintenance, it could be rapidly recycled when required for multiple users and it was accurate and error free. There would be no more botched executions with people slowly strangling while dangling from the gallows. Multiple axe blows were never needed and the government had made the law such that every case of Capital Punishment would be given the same form of execution. It was superior in every way, but it would remain a public spectacle for many years even though the audience dwindled after the novelty wore off because it lacked the drama and the excitement of a well choreographed public drawing and quartering.
