  • Women's March on Versailles took place on October, 1789. Furious Parisian women marched on Versailles about the high prices on bread, while killing some guards on their way to King Louis' castle. They gave Louis some demands: the National Assembly would take action to give out bread, and Louis and Marie Antoinette would have to go to Paris. King Louis agreed to this and left his palace forever. And the world may never know if Marie Antoinette really said, "Let them eat cake!"
  • Execution of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette
  • The National Assembly made a statement of revolutionary ideals, The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen was stated that men were born free and deserve equal rights, these rights included: "Liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression." The revolutionary leaders made "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" for their slogan.
  • Rise of Napoleon
  • I'll take that, thank you very much.
  • The Reign of Terror took place when Maximilian Robespierre was in power. Robespierre had led the Committee of public safety and also led Jacobins. Anybody could be executed by the guillotine for not being loyal to the revolution. There was a Revolutionary Tribunal (court for the trial of Committee's political enemies) in which they had two victims: the suspects that was accused were either innocent or executed. The guillotine had taken 40,000 lives during the Reign of Terror and nearly 200,000 were arrested.
  • Fall of Napoleon
  • Uh oh
  • Jacobins tried Louis for treason and when the convention found him guilty, they sentenced him to death. The guillotine took his life on January 21, 1793. Then Marie Antoinette was killed by the killing machine during the Reign of Terror.
  • ... And I pray God that the blood you are about to shed will never fall upon France!
  • In 1795, Napoleon defended the National Convention from royalists. In 1796, Napoleon lead a French Army against the Kingdom of Sardinia and Austria, he then won a series of victories. In 1799, Napoleon seized power, also known as Coup d'Etat. In 1801, he set up a method of tax collection, established a national banking system, set up lycées (government ran public schools to train officials), and he signed an agreement with Pope Pius VII. In 1804, he introduced Napoleonic Code and made himself emperor. Later on, Napoleon won many battles.
  • Napoleons power fell due to three horrible mistakes. His first mistake was setting up a blockade to stop trade and communication between Great Britain and other European nations, but that plan totally backfired, Britain made their own blockade and became stronger. His second mistake was when he upset Spain, so Spanish peasant fighters (better know as Guerrillas) did some sneak attacks on French troops then went into hiding. And during the Peninsular War, Napoleon lost 300,000 soldiers. And finally, Napoleon's worst mistake of all, the invasion on Russia. He sent 420,000 soldiers to Russia, but then Russia burned all live-stock leaving nothing for the Grand Army to eat. Then Napoleon did something rather stupid. He had his army stay in Moscow until October, then they all found themselves in Russia winter... Since most of his soldiers died of starvation, cold, exhaustion, and fighting, only 10,000 of his soldiers came back alive.
