My Characters name is Pierre La Crumpet and he is a land owning noble in Southern France. He is not a self made noble and actually pays his workers pretty decently for the time period. He is a very cocky man like most of the other nobles at this time in France. But he is able to survive because of his wits and his ability to adapt to any situtation.
The French Revolution was not successful, this is because so many people died for no reason. France would go full circle in their attempt to get a new form of government and ditch the monarchy. But in the end they ended up with another monarch named Napoleon Bonaparte, and it wouldn’t even die with him. After him would be more Bourbons and more Bonapartes until the real French Republic in 1870 was formed with the defeat of the French in the Franco-Prussian war.
