That was not the only problem France had though, they also had internal troubles, 10,000 French army officers and aristocrats had moved to the Austrian-controlled Netherlands to form armies and they allied themselves with France’s foreign enemies. Also many French citizens fought against the military draft called the levée en masse and against laws that tried to abolish Christianity in France.

During the French revolution there were over 88,000 people died to the guillotine. The three main causes of the French revolution were people being treated poorly, unfair taxes, and inequality.
