Storyboard Text

  • I was quite shocked that the peasants decided to go against the king as they are basically just like sheep
  • I was hoping to play tennis but than there was a bunch of screaming men so I gave up on my dreams of playing
  • A bunch of angry peasants ran over to the national prison so I had to duck for cover. They are going to free the 7 people that the king has in-prisoned.
  • On 14th June the National Assembly was formed and people were whispering all around .
  • I have no idea on what is happening so I will have to go to Mops to get some tea and talk about what is happening in his kingdom 
  • The National Assembly had met but they had a few misunderstandings and mishaps so the peasants stormed out and met at the the tennis court
  • It's so crowded I can barley breathe!!
  • Let's jump forward to 14th of July 1789 where the peasants went completely nuts and started to attack the national prison. Apparently it reminded them of the king and his worst qualities.
  • OK so we will now reverse to August 4th when the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. This was the idea of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the Enlightenment
  • Adopted on September 3, 1791, France’s first written constitution echoed the more moderate voices in the Assembly, establishing a constitutional monarchy in which the king enjoyed royal veto power and the ability to appoint ministers. This compromise did not sit well with influential radicals like Maximilien de Robespierre, Camille Desmoulins and Georges Danton, who began drumming up popular support for a more republican form of government and for the trial of Louis XVI.
  • In April 1792 France declared war on Austria as they tried to attack. It was later on told that the king and queen of France tried to escape to Austria as it was "safer" there.
  • So the war was won by the French! Surprising am I right
