[FR] Les Quatre Sergents de La Rochelle sont des jeunes soldats français accusés sous la Restauration d'avoir voulu renverser la monarchie et guillotinés en 1822
Après un procès jugé d’avance, les quatre sous-officiers sont condamnés à mort et guillotinés publiquement en place de Grève le 21 septembre 1822. Accusés sans preuve et n’ayant participé à aucune rébellion, ils sont considérés par l’opinion publique comme des “ martyrs de la liberté ”.

[EN] The Four Sergeants of La Rochelle were soldiers who were guillotined in Paris in 1822 for plotting to overthrow the restored Bourbon monarchy of Louis XVIII of France. Their great courage initiated a liberal campaign and they became legendary.
