  • The Monarchy and Nobility during the French Revolutionby Tony Liu
  • I am noble
  • In Versailles, during the Old Regime...
  • 3 4 13
  • So we're out here idling around in the Hall of Mirrors. Life is good, we're surrounded by the finest things, and I don't even pay taxes! I mean, who wouldn't want this life? I blindly support the King, who then gives me more luxury!
  • The French Revolution has begun! Women are storming Versailles for bread, and our nobleman is forced to move to Paris! In Paris, the nobility is controlled by the Third Estate. The King signs the Declaration of the Rights of Man, giving up some of his power.
  • Ahhhh h hhhh
  • Oh no! The Reign of Terror! Robespierre is executing all of our nobleman's friends! He goes into hiding out of fear of the guillotine. Everybody opposing the new liberal government dies, so many revolutionary reforms are instated. Surviving nobles lose special titles, privileges, and a lot of their property.
  • Ah hhhh hhh
  • The ineffective new government eventually cedes power to Emperor Napoleon! Now, Napoleon gives our nobleman his title, and the social clout that comes with it, back. In return, our nobleman gives his support to Napoleon, solidifying his absolute power. 
  • Our nobleman meets his past self...
  • Well, nothing much has changed, has it? I still have my title, my money, and my social standing.
