Wow, it sounds like the revolution is still happening, and affecting many people!
The church has been shut down! And to top that, the land has been taken by the government! I also lost my job!
Come with me, let's see what else is happening with the revolution!
Hello! I am Camilla the cat from France. I am so hungry because there is a shortage of food. Let's go look for some bread! For a while now, taxes have been rising and there has been poor leadership in the government. Follow me to the Estates General, where members from each Estate will be meeting to vote on various topics.
I wonder what's going on with Napoleon, he is losing all of his battles. I know this can't be good for France...
Once the citizens of the French Empire had enough of Napoleon's losing streak, they sent him away, first to Elba, and finally to St. Helens where he died in 1821.
I don't know what to do! Everyone is mad at me for losing the wars against Russia, Portugal, and Spain. I have to find a way to control all of Europe before I am overthrown!
Please come save me! I promise I didn't really commit a crime! I only support the king, so then they classified me as an enemy of the revolution. Now they are going to chop my head off!!
AHHHHH! Look, that man's head is about to be chopped off! I heard about a new invention called the guillotine that is being used to kill people in a humane way, but I guess it's actually true...
Now is your chance, run away, run away! I'm going to get out of here before they try to take my head next!
Let's see what these members from each Estate have to say about Napoleon coming to power:
He has reopened the churches and I have my job back!
I was allowed back into the country after fleeing, and was offered the same rights as before since I didn't fight for another country.
Now, all Estates share an education system, and scholarships are available if needed!
You see, in response to the revolution here, Austria and Prussia urged the officials here to put the king back in power.
Breaking news! France has just declared war on Austria and Prussia! But why?? People all over town are expressing their opinions on the streets.
This was because they were fearful of the idea of overthrowing a government spreading to their countries.
