  • French Revolution: Introduction
  • Factors that led to the Revolution
  • OooOOOH!!! Im going to buy these shoes because I don't already have enough of those!!
  • I really shouldn't have signed up for this, I have no idea what I'm doing.
  • Meeting of the Estates General
  • (1789-1799) The people of France are very upset with King Louis XVI. He is demanding the third estate pay taxes and now they are left with no money! They are going to start a revolution in hopes of gaining equality for every citizen!
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • There were five big reasons the revolution began. First there was growing anger with the third estate, new ideas among the government arose, they were facing serious economic troubles, weak and indecisive leadership and lastly a very large food shortage.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • The National Assembly was the meeting and gathering of representatives from the third estates who broke off from the estates general. From this they established the beginning of a representative government rather than an absolute monarchy.
  • The Great Fear
  • The Tennis Court Oath took place because the National Assembly discovered themselves locked out of their meeting room. They broke into an indoor tennis court in the palace and pledged to stay there until they had draw up an new constitution to rule France.
  • The storming of the Bastille took place because the third estate need gunpowder and weapons. The attackers killed several guards and paraded in the streets until the whole building fell. This later became a symbolic act of revolution for the French people.
  • The Great Fear was a time when rumors of novels hiring outlaw to terrorize peasant spread all through the countryside. Peasants then began to burn nobles houses and destroyed documents. They also armed themselves with pitchforks and farm tools.
