"Hold on, Damiens! I'm coming! Death to the tyrant!"
―Auguste Tavernier calling out to the long-deceased Damiens, 1789.[src]

Robert-François Damiens (9 January 1715 – 28 March 1757) was a French domestic servant who attempted to assassinate Louis XV of France in 1757.

Damiens stabbed Louis with a knife, but the King survived. Damiens was immediately arrested and underwent brutal torture before being violently executed.

His accomplice, Auguste Tavernier, was eventually imprisoned in the Bastille.
