A revolution is when a government is overthrown forcefully. Some revolutions are successful, others are not, but what about the French revolution? The French revolution was caused by an unequal social system known as the Ancién Regime, unequal taxation laws, famine from poor harvests and the system of government (absolute monarchy). The revolution ended with an absolute monarch and lots of death during the revolution. The French revolution shows to me that a revolution may not completely succeed. Even though the French revolution failed to remove the monarchy and prevent deaths, it still spread revolutionary ideas and helped France to become the nation it is today. From this unit I learnt that in a revolution the military is one of the most important assets, if you lose control of the military, you will lose control of your entire country. With Yvonne and myself, I made this video to introduce the French revolution.
