The Guillotine. ( pronounced ; Gee - o- teen) The 'G' is pronounced hard, like 'garden.. Used in the French Revolution of 1789.

The only other way of beheading was for the person to be executed, to have their head held across a block of wood, and an executioner would bring his axe down on the back of the neck. (King Charles (I) of England)

Other horrible methods of execution were, Crucifixion (Jesus Christ and St Peter), , Burning at the Stake(Joan of Arc), Drowning, "Hannging, Drawing and Quartering". Starvation(Doges Palace in Venixe). Stoning to Death (St. Stephen). Asphyxiation(Choking/throttleing). Poisoning(Socrates).

YES!!! Mankind has been very violent towards himself in the past.
