de Launay Bernard René Jourdan(1740—1789)

Bernard René Jourdan, marquis de Launay was a French governor of the Bastille, the son of a previous governor, and commander of its garrison when it was stormed on 14 July 1789.

He was dragged away and killed by those who had attacked the prison - he was literally torn to shreds. He was seized and dragged towards the Hôtel de Ville in a storm of abuse. Outside the Hôtel a discussion as to his fate began. The tormented de Launay, who had been badly beaten, shouted "Enough! Let me die!" and kicked a pastry cook named Desnot in the groin. De Launay was then stabbed repeatedly and fell to the street, his head was sawn off and fixed on a pike to be carried through the streets.
