Reign of Terror
Committee of Public Safety
- With the creation of the National Assembly came great unrest in France.
- Louis XVI would threaten to arrest those who opposed him which infuriated the rioters further
- The rioters would storm a fortress known as the Bastille and steal numerous weapons.
- This day would be known as Bastille Day (July 14,1789)
- The National Assembly would make two large changes to French government:
- Created a bill of rights known as the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen
- Created the Constitution of 1791 which established a limited monarchy
- Jacobins → radical French group that convinced the French that the king was working against them.
- After convincing the French of this plot, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were arrested and the First French Republic was created.
- Maximilian Robespierre would become the leader of the Committee of Public Safety.
- Committee of Public Safety → group that maintained order in France
-Robespierre would kill any citizens that he believed were against the Revolution
- This would lead to the Reign of Terror → period of 11 months when 30,000 people were killed.
