History must be heeded

It has often been said that it is wise to heed history for if we don't, it has a tendency of repeating itself. One example is Hitler's attack on Russia on June 22 1941 without the necessary winter preparations and failed just as Napoleon did on June 24 1812. Monarchs too no matter where they are around the world are equally not spared. What happened to King Louis XVI on January 21 1793 and Maria Antoinette on October 16 1793 as a result of the French Revolution, happened to Tsar Nicholas II and his family on July 17 1918. When the people rose, the end was brutal for the royalties. The first video is about the execution of Maria Antoinette by the guillotine and the second one, the execution of the Romanov family at the hands of the Bolsheviks in 1918.
