In 1789, the French Monarchy’s habit of supporting democratic popular revolutions in North America backfired. Today, we’re talking about the French Revolution. Across the world, people were rising up to throw off monarchies, and Louis didn’t see the writing on the wall until it was too late. Today we’ll talk about how the French Revolution unfolded, and what (if anything) was really accomplished. You’ll learn about stuff like the National Assembly, the Tennis Court Oath, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen, the guillotine, Robespierre, and a bunch of other kind of unbelievable details.
