  • One Vote
  • The French Revolution occurred from 1789 to 1799. While France was considered the most successful and advanced country at the time, the civilian population was unhappy with their positions in society. This unhappiness led them to lead a revolution against their government and make massive changes in Europe and France. 
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • Who cares if they kicked us out? We'll just write our own constitution without them!
  • New ideas about government, social classes, food shortages, bad leadership, and economic issues were all factors leading to the revolution.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • With the third estate continually pressing for a new form of government, where they would be treated more fairly, they convinced the other estates to meet at the estates general to reform old laws. However, the second and first estate refused so the third estate formed the national assembly in an attempt to make laws for themselves and end the monarchy. 
  • The Great Fear
  • After the National Assembly formed, they found themselves locked out of the meeting room at the estates general by the other two estates. They then broke into an indoor tennis court and declared they would stay there until they created a new French constitution
  • Rumors of King Louis XVI planning to use the military against the National Assembly and that foreign troops were coming to Paris to attack citizens led to people from the third estate gathering weapons to defend themselves. While they had weapons, they lacked gunpowder which led to them raiding and destroying the Bastille Prison on July 14th.
  • As the revolution began to rise, rebellions popped up through out the country leading to a panic throughout France where citizens became outlaws and attacked feudal lords and their estates.
