Storyboard Text

  • The Meeting of the Estates General
  • Why do they get more representative votes than us?!
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • We must never separate and meet wherever!
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • We need to get in there to steal the weapons!!!
  • There's no weapons though...
  • The Meeting of the Estates Generals was planned by King Louis XVI (the 16th). He called together the generals to meet so they could make changes, but when they did meet, they were unhappy with the 3rd Estate having greater numerical representation. This relates to the Revolution because it is the cause of future events that are crucial to the Revolution.
  • The March on Versailles
  • We're tired of you eating like kings while we are in a deprivation of food!!
  • The National Assembly gets locked out of the meeting hall and they end up meeting at a nearby tennis court. This relates to the French Revolution because, later on, they become their own government and they gain control and play a major role in the Revolution.
  • The Reign of Terror
  • Off with your head!
  • The Storming of the Bastille started with the Parisians hearing of rumors of royal troops coming into Paris. The Parisians wanted to steal the weapons that they believed were stocked there, but there were no weapons and no ammo. This relates to the Revolution because the takeover of the Bastille was a moral victory and a tipping point in control and power from the monarchy to the people.
  • The Rise of Napoleon
  • I am ending slavery!
  • The March on Versailles was the event where several thousand women stormed the City Hall in Paris. They did so because they were tired of the queen living a lavish lifestyle while she did little to solve the food crisis that was going on.  This relates to the Revolution because it was the immediate solution to the food crisis.
  • The Reign of Terror was Robespierre basically killing anyone who posed a threat to the Revolution.  Approximately 7,000 people were beheaded and in total approximately 40,000 people died. This relates to the Revolution because when he failed,  it made the French realize that they should focus on peace within France and that's what they did.
  • The Rise of Napoleon started when he was given command of the French army, and with the army he had many victories. He also defended French's Directory against royalists. This relates to the Revolution because the French enjoyed having a sense of pride in their new country with the victories of Napoleon, which signaled a new phase of the Revolution.
