Women marched to Versaille screaming "BREAD, BREAD" because they were starving. Once they arrived they captured the king and queen.
NOW IM IN CONTROLL!!
IS this a good thing?
whats gonna happen?
They imprisoned the King and Queen.But later on they both tried to escape under disguise but were captured and then guilty of treason.
Isn't this too much?
I cant believe how many people were killed!
The execution of the king took place and then when they showed his head cheers filled the crowd.The queen did not get executed she was still imprisoned.
When both the King and Queen fell out of power a leader rose to power.Maximilien Robespierre,he was known as "incorruptible" but acted like a dictator.
He punished anyone who disagreed with government policies. People who were found guilty were executed and halled to the streets for public execution.As a new government took control Maximilien was put to death.
