  • French Revolution : Introduction
  • I am Napoleon Bonaparte, I was the ruler of France from 1799-1815, and I ended the French Revolution!
  • Lets just gamble instead so we can earn more money!
  • Factors that led to the Revolution
  • Problem : Poor Leadership/ Foolish Spending
  • Effects: Struggling Economy/ Resentment from lower classes
  • We need more food for the citizens!
  • Meeting of the Estates General
  • We are the Nobles and we expect to get across our wants!
  • I'm just a poor peasant who is never given equal rights!
  • We are members of the Clergy, and we hold great value to religion!
  • The French Revolution lasted 10 years from 1789 to 1799. It began on July 14, 1789 when revolutionaries stormed a prison called the Bastille. The revolution ended in 1799, when General Napoleon Bonaparte overthrew the revolutionary government and established the French Consulate.
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • We aren't leaving these courts until a new constitution is formed!
  • Many factors played a role in the French Revolution such as; growing resentment among lower classes, new ideas about government. The French also suffered from serious economic problems. The French experienced weak leadership and a huge lack of food was shown.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • I'm becoming overwhelmed!
  • At the Estates-General meeting, the Clergy and Nobles expected to dominate. Under the rules, each estate’s delegates met in a separate hall to vote, and each estate was provided one vote. The two privileged estates could always outvote the Third Estate.
  • The Great Fear
  • We must destroy these horrible documents!
  • On June 20th, 1789, the National Assembly found themselves locked out of their meeting room. They broke down a door to an indoor tennis court, pledging to stay until they had drawn up a new constitution. The Members of the noble and clergy who favored reform joined in, then Louis stationed his mercenary army of Swiss guards around Versailles.
  • On, July 14th, 1789, a mob searching for gunpowder and weaponry stormed the Bastille. They overwhelmed the guards and seized control of the building. Several attackers killed the commander and clueless guards, later they paraded around the streets with the heads of dead men on pikes.
  • The Great Fear was a wave of senseless panic through France where peasants became outlaws. Peasants were armed with pitchforks/farm tools, as they broke into nobles’ manors and destroyed documents. These documents bounded them to pay feudal dues leading to heavy taxation.
