Who was Jean-Baptiste Fleuriot-Lescot?

Jean-Baptiste Edmond Fleuriot-Lescot or Lescot-Fleuriot was a Belgian architect, sculptor and a revolutionary. He was mayor of Paris for 2 months and 18 days in 1794.

Fleuriot-Lescot was a supporter of Maximilien Robespierre and remained with him on the night of July 27, 1794 after Robespierre was overthrown from the National Convention. He, Robespierre, Louis de Saint-Just, Georges Couthon, and others among their supporters were executed by guillotine the following day.

After he was guillotined, the office of mayor of Paris was abolished, and with the exception of two brief interludes in 1848 following the overthrow of Louis Philippe I and in 1870-1871 following the overthrow of Napoleon III, it wouldn't be restored until 1977.
