Place de la Concorde is among the largest squares in Europe. Its highlight is the so-called Cleopatra's Needle – an Egyptian obelisk donated to France as a reward for its role in deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs. A few fountains and monuments honoring big French cities are other centerpieces. During the French Revolution (1789-99), the then Revolution Square was a site of mass executions. King Luis XVI, his spouse Marie-Antoinette, and many royalists were guillotined here. Even a revolutionary leader Maximillien Robespierre was among the victims of Black Widow, as the guillotine was called.
