>Domestically it helped deter further attempts but internationally it was a disaster since no direct links with the duke and assassination attempts were established (although he admitted to conspiring with enemies of France).<

Tim Clayton in his new book about "The Secret War Against Napoleon" gives a different view; that, internationally, the execution was not a great scandal, but only became one later after a long propaganda campaign creating the "Black Legend" of Napoleon.
