Before the French Revolution began devastating crop failures were happen throughout ,and at the same time heavy taxation has been set upon the people. Creating turmoil for its citizens and growing a fury inside them all.
It was in July 1789 that the people had enough. With them storming the Bastille.
Taking weapons of the prison to cause mayhem throughout the country.
It would be soon after this the signing of the “Declaration of the Rights of Man” would take place. With the new leaders hoping this would satisfy the masses for the meantime.
King Louis decided to abstain from being king of France for a while. With all the butchering and burning outside.
It would be in the beginning of 1792 that a dictatorship would be put in place by the Committee of Public Safety.
They would rule what is called the “Reign of Terror” to 1794 all while abolishing slavery ,imprisoning Catholic leaders ,and setting up a republic calendar.
Eventually the committee would be dethroned and help make the way for a council called the Directory take control. Who would continue their prejudice towards the Catholic.
With the Directory easily being shown becoming corrupt a man by the name Napoléon was able to create coup with no costs in 1799.
Soon after Napoléon would gain full control of France.
Napoléon would stabilize the country of France and rule for around 16 years.
It would be with the empowerment of Napoléon that the revolution finally ended.
