A plaque on the ground in front of the Obelisk of Luxor marks the place where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed. 

This site, inaugurated in 1763, was originally called Place Louis XV.

From November 1792 to May 1795 it was then referred to as the Place de la Revolution. It was the main place for public executions, including those of Louis XVI, the 21st of January, 1793, and of Marie Antoinette, the 16th of October, 1793.
