Storyboard Text

  • Before The Estates General Met [1789]
  • The Signing of the Constitution of 1791
  • Napoleon's Defeat/Banishment to St Helena [1815]
  • Before the estates general met in 1789 the first two estates of France (Clergy, nobles) were stepping on the throats of the third estate (peasants). When it finally met, after a long impasse the third estate formed the National Assembly sparking the revolution.
  • The Execution of Peasants
  • "enemies of the revolution" shall pay with their lives
  • At this time the peasants of France started to catch a break and their rights started to improve due to "The Declaration of the Rights of Man" and the newly formed constitution.
  • Napoleon's Rule (on marriage)
  • "The Emperor Napoleon, who lately possessed such boundless power and disposed of so many crowns, now occupies a wretched hovel, a few feet square, which is perched upon a rock, unprovided with furniture, and without either shutters or curtains to the windows. This place must serve him for bedchamber, dressing room, dining room, study, and sitting room" ~ Comte de Las Cases' diary
  • Haitian Revolution
  • What is being demonstrated here is how during the french revolution, even though the nobles, officials and clergy were the main targets, many peasants were executed even though they were fighting against the nobles.
  • This scene shows how when two people are married under Napoleons code they mutually benefit and it shows through the vows they must take."Husband and wife mutually owe to each other, fidelity, soccour, and assistance" is one such vow.
  • I now pronounce you husband and wife
  • During the Haitian revolution, African slaves revolted against their masters in order to gain freedom from working on the plantations such as this one. They would often kill their masters and burn the plantation to the ground.
