Storyboard Text

  • Women’s March on Versailles
  • Declaration of the Rights of Man
  • Articles: 1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights. Social distinctions may be founded only upon the general good. 2. The aim of all political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression.
  • I will remain in power, through... Terror!
  • Reign of Terror
  • The women of Paris marched on the palace of Versailles because of the rising price of bread and poverty of the third estate. They demanded that the king and queen return to Paris and that the National Assembly provide food for the poor. This march actually worked and caused the royalty to return to Paris and caused women to have a larger, albeit still unequal role in the revolution.
  • Execution of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette
  • The declaration of the rights of man was a document that gave all male citizens their legal rights. It gave them liberty, property, security justice, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.
  • Rise of Napoleon
  • The reign of terror was the rule of dictator Maximilien Robespierre where he executed those who he believed were his competitors or those who were enemies of the revolution. It was called the reign of terror because of the terror it inspired and Robespierre's terror tactics, that made people fear his rule.
  • Fall of Napoleon
  • The ex-king of France Louis the sixteenth was found guilty of treason and executed by guillotine. His wife was executed as well for treason after many escape attempts. The guillotine was a machine with a blade that sliced through peoples necks and cut of their heads.
  • France was taken over by Napolean Bon Aparte, where he ruled as console, then dictator, and finally emperor. He was very strategically minded and talented in the world of warfare and created an empire that Europe hadn't seen since the time of the Romans. He set up many systems and government facilities in France during his rule.
  • While Napolean was successful for a time but, his undoing eventually came, as it does in all empires. He spread himself to thin, especially when he attacked Russia. His troops were not prepared for the oncoming winter and this severely depleted his military strength. He eventually lost his empire and was exiled, but he returned during the hundred days with an army. Unfortunately, he lost the battle of Waterloo and was exiled to St. Helens, where he later died.
