      Occurred when Maximilien Robespiere a member of the jacobins was appointed leader of the committee of public safety. Robespiere was extremely paranoid and arrested over half a million people and also executed 40,000 people( Bit ironic because when he was a judge earlier in his life, he quit the job as he couldn't bring himself to sentence people to death) as he thought they were plotting against him and the state. Eventually Robespiere was executed and the reign of terror ended.
