  • The French Revolution lasted 10 years from 1789 to 1799. It began on July 14, 1789. The revolution had ended in 1799 when Napoleon overthrew the revolutionary government and established the French Consulate.
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • The five factors that led to the revolution were: 1 . Growing resentment among lower classes 2. New ideas about government 3. Serious economic problems 4. Weak/indecisive leadership 5. Food Shortage
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • Wheres that gunpowder?!
  • Lets get them!
  • Louis was the name of the Estate General. People didn't agree with him and forced him to hold meeting of the Estates-General (an assembly of representatives from all 3 estates) to approve the new tax. Overall, Louis wasn't a very responsible person.
  • The Great Fear
  • Members of the noble and clergy who favored reform had joined. Then Louis stationed his mercenary army of Swiss guards around Versailles. The king had somewhere near 400 personal guards at the time until it became too expensive. So at the end of his reign he had 2,960 guards posted at Versailles in all.
  • On July 14th, 1789 a mob searching for gunpowder stormed the Bastille. They overwhelmed the guards and seized control of the building. Attackers killed commander and several guards.
  • Rebellion swept from Paris to the countryside. A wave of senseless panic went through France where peasants became outlaws themselves. They were armed with pitchforks and farm tools, broke into nobles’ manors and destroyed documents that bound them to pay feudal dues.
