Storyboard Text

  • On August 4, 1789, several liberal nobles and clerics willingly surrendered their superior rights at the assembly in an attempt to calm the affects of Great Terror.
  • On the same day as the abolition of Feudalism, the National Constitute Assembly adopted the Declaration of Man and Citizen, which stated the enlightened democratic principles of the assembly, as well as asserted their march to replace the ancien régime.
  • After the adoption of the Rights of Man and Citizen, the National Constitute Assembly began drafting France's first constitution, which wouldn't be officially adopted until September 3rd, 1791, ultimately establishing a constitutional monarchy
  • On October 5th, 1789, as many as 7,000 women showed their outrage at the price and scarity of bread by marching, armed, to the Palace of Versilles.
  • After King Louis XVI accommodated the demands of the hoard and the Assembly, he and his family addressed a crowd, and was ultimately deemed "suspicious", and returned to Paris to be kept under a watchful eye. On October 6th, 1789, the Palace of Versailles was no longer the residence of the King.
  • Overall, 1789 was very productive as far as reforming the country. Between the surrender of feudalism, drafting a constitution and putting it into effect and creating a constitutional monarchy, and the women having the courage to stand up for themselves and make a difference.
