We shall support the was but we shall not kill the King!
We are in the middle of the Montagnards and the Girondins
The Montagnards were members apart of an influential faction. They spent their time plotting against the king and planning for the rise of the French Republic. They would punish anyone who dissagreed with them, this was called "the terror."
Execution of the King
Execute King Louis XVI! Off with his head!
My name is Maximilien Robespierre and I say we govern with fear! Let's call it the reign of terror.
The Girondins were a loose group of Republican politicians. They had more moderate thinking in comparison to the Montagnards
Committee of Public Safety
The Plains were a group with middle ground views. They were closer to the Girondins, but they never dared to speak out against the Montagnards.
Guillotine, Victims, and Rein of Terror
Lets keep it moving people
I only disagreed with them...I did nothing wrong
The execution of King Louis XVI reinforced the trend of a new radical government.
Please don't chop my head off!
The Committee of Public Safety came into control of the government. To defend France from threats, they adopted policies known as the Reign of Terror.
I saw this cool thing called a guillotine
Haven't we killed like 40,000 people already?
The Committee of Public Safety would kill all who rebelled. Almost 40,000 people were murdered during the Reign of Terror
