The king is putting overwhelming taxes on his people. They cannot even feed themselves.
My children are dying because the taxes are too big. King Louis XVI is a madman!
I cannot believe that he is only taxing people in the 3rd estate! He is only taxing the poor people!
Marie Antoinette was the queen of France at the time*
They have taken the vast majority of our money! Bread is so expensive We cannot feed our families!
And yet the queen strolls around town with her healthy childern! I HATE HER!
The men raided the Bastille prison, and the woman raided the queen and king's castle.
Men: Lets raid their prison for supplies!
Woman: lets raid the queen's castle and take their food and kill her!!!!
So, all the woman of France participated in raided the king's castle . They planned to take kill the queen and take as much food as they could using only kitchen tools and anything sharp that they could find.
KILL THE QUEEN!!
Soon after, the king, queen, and their young managed fled to Paris. After that, chaos broke loose , and people started executing anyone that was rich using the guillotine.
We are fleeing to Paris
The king and queen ended up getting caught dressed up as poor people. They were then accused of treason and executed using the guillotine.
Here is your king!
This man is holding up the king's head.
By the end of the French revolution, at least 40,000 people were killed by the guillotine. Including Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.
