Storyboard Text

  • To make sure that they had freedom, the National Assembly created the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Their motto was "liberté, egalité, fraternité," which in English means "life, equality, fraternity." This motto was very important, because it contained their Natural Rights, which are the rights that the French people believed every person had.
  • Long live the Resistance!
  • There had been less food during this time than normal, but a rumor had spread that there was bread in the Palace of Versailles. A group of women gathered together to march into the palace, and the king had to move to Paris.
  • Give us bread! We know you're hiding lots of food in there!
  • We need to feed our families!
  • During this time, many of the Sans-Culottes, or the lower class people, starting believing in different ideas. These people created the First French Republic, a new government. Some of them, like the Jacobins, killed anyone who opposed them, and so many people were afraid of them.
  • Don't tell anyone, but I think the Jacobin's plot of murder doesn't sound good at all.
  • I won't. I know they would force you to be killed if they heard you.
  • The king was afraid of what could happen, and tried to run away, but he was caught before he could. Radicals (people with violent ideas) in the new governing body, the National Convention, decided that he was a traitor.
  • The king has no more power, and we all have the right to say our opinions! Now we have equal suffrage!
  • Some of the radicals were very violent, and many people were afraid of them because of this. One man, named Robspierre, was a tyrant (a cruel leader), and he killed thousands of people using a guillotine, a machine that cut of a person's head.
  • Just before he was killed, the former king officially became a citizen instead of a ruler, and he was referred to as Citizen Capet. The revolution was really taking off, and many people felt a strong feeling of nationalism, or pride in a person's country. The city of Marseilles sent troops to Paris, and they sang a song as they marched, which later became France's national anthem.
  • *singing La Marseillaise, the new French anthem*
