As the roar of the French Revolution echoed throughout the rebellious souls of the bourgeoisie, an evident desire for a strong government was present throughout the nation. Even though the Tennis Court Oath ended in just an initial name change from the National Assembly to the Legislative Assembly, an internal change was soon recognizable within the Legislative Assembly as diverse factions arose. While conservative members pressed for a return to the old-regime, Jacobins demanded immediate action. These radicals spurred the murders of elites, nobles, and any other Frenchmen deemed to be a traitor.
