The 10 August insurrection, also known as "the storming of the Tuileries Palace", was the French revolutionary insurrection upon king Louis XVI's reign in Paris on 10 August 1792.

The insurrection was led by Frédéric Rouille and Antoine Joseph Santerre with thousands of armed revolutionary extremists fighting against two-to-three thousand men, mainly Swiss Guards. The fighting was fast and brutal, and the Swiss Guards were massacred. During the confusion of the battle, the King escaped from the palace and took refuge with the National Assembly. This resulted in the abolition of monarchy and the creation of a new National Convention.
