This journal follows Chloé Bourgeois, a bratty 15-year-old daughter of a French aristocrat, through the french revolution. Watch as Chloe fights her inner self, and how she changes throughout the three journals from her self-centered, sassy, old self, to someone new.
The French revolution left an indelible mark in history, but was the 10 dreadful years of terror really worth it? Did it change anything?
Well, what stayed the same after the revolution was the absolutism government France had. Before the revolution, during King Louis XVI’s reign, France was ruled under an absolutist monarchy. The main goals of the revolution were for everyone to be equal and that everyone had their natural rights and freedom; yet, after 10 atrocious years of the revolution, when Napoleon put an end to the bloody revolution, France still remained to be ruled with an absolutism.
However the revolution cannot be considered useless, some of the main goals were still achieved. Like when Louis XVI was executed, the old regime died with him, and with the help of the new governing system, peasants gained back a lot of their freedom as well as liberty; however, many nobles lost their priveledges and was stripped off of their titles along with many riches due to the new constitutions.
