  • French Revolution: Introduction
  • Factors that lead to the Revolution
  • Meeting of the Estates General
  • We demand to make France fair!
  • The French Revolution was France's attempt to rule over Europe. The monarchy wanted to be the biggest empire in the country. Occurred from 1789-1799.
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • We're not leaving until there's a new constitution!!
  • Some factors to the revolution were the unfair estates and the taxing. The commoners were tired of having to pay taxes and the high price of just about everything. The weather also played a big factor taking out most crops which the commoners depended their paycheck to come from.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • The meeting of the Estates General was held because the people didn't agree with the ideas of King Louis. All three estates participated in the meeting to discuss what they thought would make France more fair. After discussion, the third estate became there own and named themselves the National Assembly.
  • The Great Fear
  • Nobody will terrorize us!
  • After the General Estates meeting, the National Assembly found themselves locked out of their meeting room. Not to be locked out, the National Assembly broke down the doors to an indoor tennis court and stayed there until a new constitution was written.
  • The Bastille was a prison in Paris that held gunpowder. The building was taken down because the National Assembly heard a rumor that King Louis was going to take them down with his strong military. The National Assembly raided the Bastille in search of gunpowder and to seize control to show how powerful they could be.
  • The Great Fear was what the french called the rebellion of the peasants. A rumor spread to the peasants that nobles were hiring outlaws to terrorize the peasants. In return, the peasants armed themselves and broke into nobles' manors and destroyed practically everything.
