Jean-Paul Marat (May 24, 1743 - July 13, 1793), was a French revolutionary born in Switzerland.

He was a member of the more radical Jacobin faction during the French Revolution, helping to launch the Reign of Terror. He advocated doing away with the monarchy and raged against more moderate revolutionary leaders. In July 1790 he wrote "Five or six hundred heads cut off would have assured your repose, freedom and happiness. A false humanity has held your arms and suspended your blows; because of this millions of your brothers will lose their lives". He approved of the September 1792 massacres of jailed "enemies of the Revolution" and established the "Committee of Surveillance" whose role was to root out antirevolutionaries. Marat composed the death lists from which the innocent and the guilty alike were executed.-wikipedia.en
