Description: On 28 July 1835, King Louis Philippe survived an assassination attempt during the king’s annual review of the Paris National Guard commemorating the revolution. Giuseppe Mario attacked the procession with a self built weapon, that later became known as the Machine infernale, that consisted of 25 gun barrels fastened to a wooden frame that could be fired simultaneously. A ball only grazed the King’s forehead, but 18 people were killed.
