The French Revolution was an influential period of social and political upheaval in France that lasted from 1789 until 1799, and was partially carried forward by Napoleon during the later expansion of the French Empire.

The Revolution overthrew the monarchy, established a republic, experienced violent periods of political turmoil, and finally culminated in a dictatorship by Napoleon that rapidly brought many of its principles to Western Europe and beyond.

Inspired by liberal and radical ideas, the Revolution profoundly altered the course of modern history, triggering the global decline of absolute monarchies while replacing them with republics. Through the Revolutionary Wars, it unleashed a wave of global conflicts that extended from the Caribbean to the Middle East.

Historians widely regard the Revolution as one of the most important events in human history. The French Revolution certainly swept away the old regime. Though they had not intended it when they had helped spark the revolution, all of the perquisites of the nobility were swept away.

In France, as well as much of Europe, there would remain an admiration for the ideals of the revolution, embodied in the slogan, "liberté, egalité, fraternité". Revolution would periodically sweep the continent. Freedom would spread, even to the dark reaches of Russia where the serfs would be liberated even before the slaves in the United States.
