1 what were the causes of the french revolution

1. What were the causes of the French Revolution?

  • The people of France challenged the existing social and political structures.

  • The three estates created unfair advantages for the 1st and 2nd estates.

  • Enlightenment ideas inspired the 3rd estate to question their position.

  • The financial crisis created many problems and Louis XVI failed to make effective reforms.


2 why was the calling of the estates general by louis xvi a significant event

2. Why was the calling of the Estates-General by Louis XVI a significant event?

  • The Estates-General was a representative body made up of the three estates.

  • The group had not met for 175 years, which allowed the French kings to rule with absolute power.

  • Each estate prepared cahiers, which documented their grievances and proposed reforms.

  • The Third Estate challenged the voting process because they had no political power.


3 how did popular revolts by the people contribute to the french revolution

3. How did popular revolts by the people contribute to the French Revolution?

  • The members of the Third Estate demanded change through violent protests.

  • The Storming of the Bastille, the Great Fear, and the women’s march to Versailles to demand bread demonstrated the people's desire for change.

  • The leaders of the revolution were moved to make reforms to address the social and economic problems facing France.


4 how did foreign reaction to the revolution help lead to war

4. How did foreign reaction to the revolution help lead to war?

  • Austria and Prussia feared the spread of revolutionary ideas.

  • They issued a declaration to protect the French monarchy, which may have led to their intervention in the revolution.

  • In response, the Legislative Assembly declared war on Austria, Prussia, and their ally Britain.


5 what changes did the radical government make in french society and politics

5.What changes did the radical government make in French society and politics?

  • The National Convention abolished the monarchy and declared France a republic.

  • Viewed as traitor to the revolution, Louis XVI was tried and executed.

  • The Committee of Public Safety was set up to manage the country's military defense and save the revolution.

  • Leaders wanted to erase all connections to the old ways of life.


6 what was the terror and how did it end

6. What was the terror, and how did it end?

  • The Reign of Terror was used to eliminate the external and internal threats to the revolution.

  • Revolutionary Tribunals were used to quickly try and execute the counterrevolutionaries.

  • All members of society were targeted, but the largest group of victims came from the peasants and sans-culottes.

  • Fearing for their own lives, the National Convention arrested and executed Robespierre, ending the terror.
