I'm assuming the answer is Dr Joseph-Ignace Guillotin (ie the harbinger of the guillotine). Please note that he did not invent the machine, but '...first promoted a law that required that all executions, even those of commoners and plebeians, be carried out by means of a 'machine that beheads painlessly' ...'
