Alice Lisle

The trial of Alice Lisle at the 'Bloody Assizes' of Judge Jeffreys after Monmouth's rebellion of 1685 is one of England's most celebrated miscarriages of justice. This is the only occasion where Edward Rutherfurd incorporates a historical person into a fictional family tree. The story and trial appear in THE FOREST: 'Alice'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
