I do not know if we would call it happy; however, Robert is convicted of his "war crimes," but he is so badly burned and so "diseased" that he could never go to prison. He is allowed to live out his life, although before his trial he could have opted for euthanasia. He is taken care of by Juliet d'Orsey for the rest of his life.
