The French Revolution
King Louis XVI
Declaration of the Rights of Man
A dethroned king, a flamboyant queen, the storming of a fortress prison and an infamous bloodbath known as the Reign of Terror the story of the French Revolution is an epic tale of political rebellion and economic upheaval. From the grandeur of Versailles and the marriage of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, to the disintegration of the revolution nearly a decade later, The French Revolution details this pivotal period in European history, focusing on how the revolution shook the very foundations of monarchy, destroyed the last vestiges of feudalism, and planted the seeds of modern politics, diplomacy, and nationalism. Travel back to the days of the guillotine as HISTORY delves into the dark undercurrent of instability ushered in by the revolution and some of its most influential figures, including Louis XVI, Marie-Antoinette, Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat, Georges Danton, and Charlotte Corday.
