Storyboard Text

  • Before the French Revolution
  • We all love life in France. Everything here is wonderful!
  • Revolution Brewing
  • We live wonderful lives in the 1st and 2nd Estates. We are very rich and don't have to pay taxes.
  • I am not happy here in the 3rd Estate. My cost of living is too high, and I have to pay too many taxes.
  • Then Arrives King Louis XVI
  • I am King Louis XVI. It is now time for me to take over France!
  • Before the French Revolution, France was considered the most advanced country in Europe. It was highly populated, had great infrastructure, and was the Center of Enlightenment.
  • Fate of Louis XVI
  • Now I finally get to escape from this terrible place.
  • Do I know you from somewhere?
  • This shows how differently people lived in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Estates. People in the 1st and 2nd were very happy. The people in the 3rd, not so much. They wanted change, and fast.
  • Chaos in France
  • Louis XVI becomes the King in 1774 and inherits severe debt from the previous king. But he did little to help matters as he payed little attention to domestic affairs and spent lavishly.
  • End of King Louis XVI
  • King Louis attempts to escape from Austria, but was spotted by a postmaster and returned back to his own Palace. The Assembly then creates a limited constitutional monarchy.
  • Austria and Prussia, seeking a Western European ally, sought to reinstate the power of King Louis XVI and threatened to wage war. War begins. France responded yes and went to war.
  • TIME FOR WAR!!!!!
  • Monarchy is abolished after King Louis XVI is found guilty. Male citizens could now vote. Louis dies by guillotine. Many people not considered loyal to the new government were beheaded.
  • I guess it is now all over for me.
