1.Louis XVI

Louis VXI was warned to be wary of the date, the 21st. He refused to do any business on that day, but after the revolution he was arrested on the 21st, tried on a different 21st of the month, and finally was executed on yet another 21st of a different month, so perhaps they were correct about him needing to avoid that date.
