Factors that led to the Revolution
Hmm, I can't decide
Meeting of the Estates General
The French Revolution was a time in France where the common people rebelled against the nobles and monarchy, and tried to form their own government. The revolution ended when Napoleon took power in France.
Tennis Court Oath
Growing resentment among lower classes New ideas about government Serious economic problems Weak/indecisive leadership Food Shortage
Storming of the Bastille
The meeting of the Estates General was a convention where representatives of all the estates gathered. Since each estate had one vote, the third estate was always outvoted, and it was very unfair. This led to the forming of the National Assembly.
The Great Fear
When the National Assembly was locked out of their meeting room, they went to a tennis court and pledged to stay until they had written a new Constitution
The storming of the Bastille was when French commoners took over a famous prison in Paris to get weapons and gunpowder for the Revolution. It is symbolic for the French people and is celebrated on July 14th
The Great Terror was the period where Maximilian Robespierre was in power. It was called the terror because thousands were put to death at the guillotine, and solid evidence wasn't needed for you to be killed
