Best Answer

Dr. Antoine Louis was the original inventor of the execution device known as the Guillotine after Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin who had first proposed that beheading by a simple device should be used for executions to replace the cruel and messy methods of the era ranging from hangings and decapitation by sword to inhumane torture. Ironically Dr. Antoine Louis was indeed executed using his own invention during the Reign of Terror around 1973-1974.
