Lets swear to write an new constitution for France!
The storming of Bastille
This is 1798 when France was broke. This was also a time when taxes were very low. Also it means that food prices were high and pay was low. This was due to the amount of the two previous kings had spent on the palace. France was spending more money than they actually collected in taxes.
The passing of the declaration of the rights of man
Liberty, equality and fraternity!
After King Louis called the meeting of the three estates the third estate formed into a group known as the national assembly. After that they made an oath known as the oath of the tennis court, promising to write a constitution for France.
The Beheading of King Louis XVI
This battle was the opening bloody battle of the French Revolution. This was on the date of July 14th, the French think of this day as independence day as Americans do for July 4th.
The rein of terror
The Declarations of the Rights of Man was a statement of the principals of the revolution. The assembly agreed and declared that all people had the rights of liberty, equality, and fraternity.
This is where king Louis XVI is getting beheaded after being convicted of treason. He was given this punishment after trying to leave France during the revolution.
During the rein of terror over 20,000 people were beheaded within twelve months. Maximilian Robespierre was the cause of this and decided that anyone he accused was to be beheaded even if they were not really an enemy of the country. The country was in fear of being beheaded.
You are all going to be beheaded because I want you too.
