Storyboard Text

  • Hmm, I've never thought about it like that. 
  • Because of the fall of the French economy, peasants were living a harsh life. They had to keep up with paying taxes, and their own personal expenses. Priests and nobles would constantly collect money from the peasants.
  • Because of the peasant being poor, they couldn't afford food. Because of that they often starved and lived in poor conditions. This was one of the following causes to the French Revolution. 
  • Salons were often held to discuss Enlightenment philosophies. They talked to one another and talked about their ideas and beliefs in a respectable manner. 
  • The people of Marie Antoinette and King Louis were angry at the lavish lifestyle they led. Their money could have been used for need instead of things they wanted.  The Palace of Versailles was a prime example of just that.
  • The Storming of Bastille was a turning point in the French Revolution. The citizens of Paris went to the prison and destroyed it with their bare hands. This was just the beginning to the revolution. It would trigger a series of events that would lead to the execution of the King and Queen.
  • The people were upset with King Louis's hesitation to accept the new decrees, so thousands of women marched to the Palace of Versailles.  They told the King and Queen that their children were starving because of the impossible circumstances they were under.
