The French, not at all like the Haitian slaves, were under a legislature as nationals and were trying to overthrow their current government. In doing so, they wanted to create a new government where they had rights that could settle their social needs as well as repair the damages caused by the war and decrease France’s debt. France was going through an internal battle because for 175 years the estates general wasn’t in session and when it was in session in 1789, King Louis XVI asked for more money but locked out the third estate. The third estate had no voice, rights and were just poor peasants suffering from having to pay 40% tax. Louis XVI was the king of France and thusly was considered in charge of its monetary emergency and the disparity of the French society.
The 3rd Estate split away from the Estates General because their goals were being ignored. They wanted to form their own representative government. They went to the King’s Tennis Court and pledged an oath to stay until the King met their demand. They demanded an equal voice and a constitution that gave them power over their taxes, and property. The King was afraid of a National Assembly that only had 3rd estate members, so he forced the 1st and 2nd estate members to join the National Assembly.
The French Revolution was the cause of many changes to the mainland of Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth century. The Revolution was a conflict over absolute monarchism, social inequality or estate system and economic injustice with the enlightenment and the knowledge of other revolutions, such as the American Revolution were also factors that contributed to the French Revolution. The mighty reformation was a really frustrating time in the years of 1789 to 1799, and occurred over three stages, The Tennis Court Oath followed by The Great Fear then finally The Reign of Terror. After these three stages, The Rule of the Moderates that ended the French Revolution, Napoleon was the savior as he was instrumental to ending the frustrating
Bernadotte returned to Paris in deep disfavour and was placed in charge of organising the defence of a British invasion of the Netherlands. Bernadotte performed well and the invasion was repelled. When Bernadotte returned to Paris, his position was uncertain. He was appointed as ambassador to Rome but before he could take up his new position he received a completely unexpected offer from Sweden. The current King of Sweden was the elderly and childless Charles XIII.
The French Revolution started 228 years ago by the Parisians to liberate themselves from the oppression posed by the despotic, authoritarian and ignorant French monarchy. At the center of the French monarchy, the Parisians wanted to remove not only Louis XVI but also his seemingly arrogant and snobby wife, Marie Antoinette. Often, Marie Antoinette is portrayed as a conservative, extravagant and lavish elite who is a symbol of the inequality and lopsided wealth distribution. Nevertheless, recent studies about Marie Antoinette rebuke her widely known image and shows that she was, in fact, a relatively virtuous queen who sought to mollify the daily circumstances of the impoverished farmers, a caring mother for her son and daughter and a courageous
The classical view of the revolution which attained orthodoxy during the Nineteenth century was essentially a Marxist view. Georges Lefebvre perhaps articulated this perspective most prominently and framed the downfall of the Bourbon monarchy as a ‘social revolution’ which was the ‘culmination of a long social and economic development which made the bourgeoisie the masters of the world’ . This view was challenged by a revisionist school most commonly associated with Alfred Cobban mainly writing in the 1950s who framed the revolution as a political revolution rather than a social uprising as the classical interpretation argued. In 1661 Louis XIV had come of age, he had been king since 1643 but as he was only 5
Congress stopped trading with France and any alliance they had with them and tripled the size of the army. The new navy fought back to France and America seized almost 90 ships, thus leading to the French Revolution and the Quasi War. After these battles with France, the Federalists were in charge of Congress. Democractic-Republicans did not want to follow federal laws and others called for secession. These events all led to the signing of the Alien and Sedition Acts (History 1).
I believe one of the biggest causes was the unfair taxes. The unfair taxes was a cause for the french revolution. Despite being unprivileged of basic human rights, the third estate was also very heavily taxed. The third estate had very high taxes on many things. There was taxes on their land and produces [Document 1] In the diagram of [Document 2] The third estate had lots more land but that they had to pay more for there taxes.
Though the beginning of French revolution was just a movement for government reforms, but later it twisted ferocious that leaded to the abolition of monarchy and execution of King Louis XVI. To resolve the monarch’s financial crisis, the estate general was called by King Louis XVI on May, 1789. The member of the third estate made their own national assembly fearing to bear the financial burden, and pledged Tennis Court Oath, and decided to remain there until a new constitution has been made. In addition, July 14, 1789, angry people of France, saw bastille a place to vent their frustration and marquis De Launay along with his troop found no option else then to surrender to the mob. After coming to know about the fall of the Bastille, King Louis XVI removed the imperial troops from the French capital and brought back finance minister Jacques Necker However, he could no longer converse the Revolution, while the National Assembly (from July 9 formally called the National Constituent Assembly) became de facto the French
