Declaration of the Rights of Man
The Reign of Terror
The End of the French Revolution - 1804
I am Napoleon and I shall be your emperor
A very prominent change that happened during the Revolution was the abolition of feudalism and the adoption of the Declaration of Rights of Man. This declaration reflected the influence of American revolutionary ideas, as it proclaimed the equality of all men, declared that sovereignty resided in the people, and asserted individual rights to liberty, property, and security.
The Reign of Terror was a period in which the French government executed thousands of opponents of the revolution, including the king and the queen.
After a period of turmoil and war, the general Napoleon Bonaparte became emperor of France in 1804. The ending result of this war was the abolition of feudalism, the adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of Man, and the establishment of the First French Republic (1792).
