How a Brave Man Died (1912)
- Summaries (1)
His fearless spirit undaunted by many adversities, Murat, a former dashing leader of Napoleon's cavalry, and later King of Naples, lands with his followers at Calabria, in southern Italy, in an attempt to regain his kingdom. Although anticipating a rousing welcome by the people, Murat's expedition proves a complete fiasco. He and his friends are fiercely attacked by the coast guards, overwhelmed by force of numbers, and put to rout. Most of his followers escape in their ships, but Murat is captured and imprisoned in the Castle of Pizzo, where he is subjected to all sorts of indignities. After a mock trial he is condemned to death and is allowed only a half hour for religious consolation. At the appointed time the brave man is led out and forced to face a file of soldiers with leveled muskets. "Aim at my heart!" are his last words.
