Best Answer

A huge number of people were imprisoned there - most of the famous people associated with the Revolution, with the notable exception of King Louis XVI, who was imprisoned in the Temple, and went directly from there to the scaffold. Danton was at the Conciergerie, so was Marie-Antoinette and the Duke of Orleans, as well as the masses of ordinary people who were condemned during the Terror. The Conciergerie was the last step before the guillotine, because the Tribunal was directly above it, and once a prisoner was condemned by the Tribunal they usually went directly out to the tumbrils in the courtyard and taken to the guillotine. If you want to know more about this, I have written a guidebook to Paris during the Revolution that is due to come out this spring - one of the walks it contains takes you on a very detailed tour of the Conciergerie, and tells you much more about who was imprisoned in this very formidable place!

How did the french revolution effect women?

Women during the French Revolution were viewed as lesser humans than men. They were excluded from the Declaration of the Rights of Men which granted all men in France certain rights. During part of the Revolution women were allowed to inherit property, but this right was revoked by Napoleon. In the later years of the Revolution women's right to express their views was reduced. Women's clubs were banned and violators were arrested. Women were imprisoned and executed.
