  • French Revolution: Introduction
  • Factors that led to the Revolution
  • Ideas
  • Meeting of the Estates General
  • The French Revolution was a period of far-reaching social and political upheaval in France and its colonies. It lasted from 1789 until 1799. Not long after Napoleon took charge of France.
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • France was having trouble economically and with their leadership. Also food shortage was a problem and many new ideas were starting to spread around. The price of bread was a huge factor also.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • The Estates Generals met to try and make new tax laws. The one thing that made the third estate mad was that even though they had more people the third and second estate could override their vote.
  • The Great Fear
  • The National Assembly got locked out of their normal meeting room. So they ended up going and meeting in an abandoned tennis court and weren't leaving until a new constitution was written.
  • Louis was going to use military to dismiss the National Assembly. Many peasants stormed the big prison in search of gun powder to help them defend Paris. While doing this many were killed and some prisoners were freed.
  • Rumor was going around that outlaws were after the peasants. So the peasants hearing this panicked and started destroying stuff becoming the outlaws themselves. Armed with pitchforks, broke into nobles’ manors and destroyed documents that bound them to pay feudal dues or burned down the houses altogether.
