  • Estates General Meeting
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • We, the National Assembly, must never separate!
  • Reign of Terror
  • "Death to the traitors!"
  • The Estates-General was the legislative body of representatives from each of the three estates. A meeting was called for the Estates-General for the first time in 175 years by a French king. The reason for this was because crisis with a crumbling economy arose.
  • Robespierre is Executed
  • The Tennis Court Oath took place when the Third Estate declared themselves the National Assembly. It was unfair that the First and Second Estate were always outvoting the third. The Third Estate (National Assembly) was locked out of the meeting hall and met in a nearby tennis court to swear that they will always be one.
  • Continental System
  • The Reign of Terror was under Maximilien Robespierre's watch as he rose to leadership of the Committee of Public Safety. During this time, many citizens were arrested and/or executed with the use of a guillotine. The arrests and executions were "punishments" for those supposedly going against the Revolution.
  • The End of Napoleon
  • Within a year, members of the Convention turned on the Committee of Public Safety and the Reign of Terror was coming to an end. Robespierre was arrested and soon executed the next day. After the execution of Robespierre and other radicals, the amount of executions slowed and cut down.
  • Robespierre's Head
  • Britain was keeping Napoleon from his complete European empire. In order to get them to cave in, Napoleon brought up the Continental System. This created a blockade and ended trade between the two. It backfired and not only was Britain not fazed, but goods in Europe became scarce instead.
  • No more trade with Britain!
  • Napoleon is officially defeated during the Battle of Waterloo. Because of his loss, he was exiled and forced to go to St. Helena, a lonely island in the South Atlantic. Unlike after the Battle of Leipzig, he was not going to return this time.
  • I cannot come back. I have been exiled.
