Follow me my fellows .I promise to create a fairer andrepresentative government.
Committee of Public Safety
Our most important goal is to protect France against foreign and domestic enemies. Anyone that seems like a threat to us should be executed.
King Louis XVI was considered a traitor to France and was later convicted by a single vote and sentenced to death on January 21,1793
Reign of Terror
After the execution of King Louis XVI, Robespierre was viewed as incorruptible (trustworthy) and quickly rose to power.
Olympe de Gouges
Sentenced to death!!
On August 1793, the Jacobins, a radical revolutionary group led by Robespierre, created the Committee of Public safety to be responsible for protecting France from foreign invasion and internal rebellion.
Execution of Robespierre
Finally, the bloodshed is over.
300,000 people were arrested and 17,000 were executed (The nobles, clergy, peasants, and the innocents)
On November 3,1793 De Gouges who wrote the Declaration of Women's rights was condemned as a counter-revolutionary and denounced as an "unnatural" woman.
Women should have the same rights as the men. I do not believe that I did anything WRONG!
Fearing their own lives, people rebel against the committee of Public Safety, and in 1794, Robespierre was executed.
No!! I did any of it for the safety of our country. You guys can't do this to me.
