Considered too conservative, Bailly would be succeeded as mayor of Paris by Jérôme Pétion de Villeneuve and was eventually sentenced to death after refusing to testify against Marie Antoinette. After being taken to the Champ de Mars, he was tortured by a frenzied mob for two hours in a ditch before being guillotined. It was said that Bailly's execution was "intended as an expiatory ceremony".
