Robert Emmet, the leader of the doomed July 1803 rebellion, was executed for treason by the British government in September 1803. He became a legend, fuelled by his speech from the dock after the judge pronounced sentence, his doomed romance with Sarah Curran (whose father, a Patriot advocate, had refused to help Emmet), the moving scenes from his last night in prison, and his courage and defiance at the scaffold. Two hundred years from his death, many nationalists can still recite by heart his famous death oration.
