However, one thing that has never happened was France being conquered and that is because of Napoleon he never lost a war. And because of this the people loved him and wanted him to be king a step away from democracy.
WE LOVE YOU NAPOLEON!!!
Eventually, Napoleon crowned himself king and took over most of Europe except Britain. Britain blockaded the french to stop them from getting supplies. So Napoleon pushed into Russia with 400k troops known as the grand army but got too cold and had to run home with 10K troops. After that, they went back to having a King Louis XVIII. Full circle no democracy at this point except for a few rights here and there.
And that's the long and short of the French Revolution.
Well, that just about covers it, folks. I hope you learned something today.
