The French Revolution. Years of starvation, blood, and war. While a lot of things stayed the same, many things changed. France was started off ruled by an absolute monarch, and ended up with an Emperor; however, the two weren’t very different. Also, the revolution was a fight for equality, but many people still suffered from inequality. There was still a difference between the rich and the poor, and many people were left starving. France’s economy depended deeply on its agriculture, and people were continued to struggle with successful harvests. On the other hand, the French Revolution started off ruled by the despised King Louis XVI, an absolute monarch. Over the course of the revolution, France was taken over by the National Convention, the Committee of Public Safety, the Directory, etc. which implemented a lot of new things in France. For example, the new constitution. It played a major role in the changes of the revolution. The constitution created freedom, liberty, and equality for the Third Estates, like the right to vote. Additionally, the revolution greatly affected people’s outlooks on religion. Many people developed humanist thoughts that linked ideas like God and absolute monarchy together. In conclusion, the French Revolution faced many changes like religion and freedom, but also remained similar in some ways.
