Okay, no one's got it. Perhaps it was a bad question. His civil name was "Louis Capet".

Another question then: Who were the two contenders in the famous Chess World Championship Final in Reikjiavic, 1972?

No it was atually 5. The one thing I found most interesting about this was that those who voted for clemency all had older brothers, and thus fell into the grain of being more forgiving. The rest were all the first born sons who had to endure the rules and believed that if they had to live by them so did others. The King broke the rules, so he must be punished and Duc d'Orleans was a first born son

"Then in a nominal vote that lasted 36 hours, they pronounce in favor of the death penalty. The required majority being 361 votes, 387 vote in favor of the death penalty, but 26 of them, with a possibility of a suspended sentence.Only one voice, and Louis could have avoided the guillotine: Philippe-Égalité (formerly Duke of Orleans and cousin of the king)is among the Montagnards who voted in favor of the death penalty. Thus the king owes it to his cousin if he did not get a suspended sentence."
