French Revolution. Deryk browning

Once the lower level nobility's realized what was taking place was unfair they decided to take a stand and not pay taxes forward. Due to political differences in monarchy and nobility income. What's going on is they're tired of just being there and paying for the kings selfishness, in other words why should the King Louis be able to splurge on himself and his wife for their own reasons. When their is a high majority of men, women, and children of lower classes struggling on a day to day basis. The men and women of the french nobility are distraught at the way the french monarchy is able to just over look the over all problems of the people. The people become outraged and in fact after multiple organizations upbringing and quick downfall finally say “We’ve had enough of this, and it's time to fight back.” Due to the napoleonic wars France became the dominant power in Europe, though the French grew rapidly under his power, the French would fall apart even more quickly. Every single win he had taken for France was demolished by his great ability to have a tremendous effect on his home country. So for this reasoning he is the antagonist in the French Revolution among many others.

In the midst of France turning into a war zone and alienation in the process a great drought was there to kind of put the cherry on the top of the ice cream. The prouis of the french people were completely the same they still wanted King and his massive debt creating monarchy and his wife Lady Antoinette to be liberated. Had the drought came a bit earlier in the years before the King and his wife had came in would it had been a less expensive debt ?. Yes because in order to put money in their pockets to keep the excessive spending, they needed a deeper pocket. But unfortunately the pockets were not their own the pockets to be taken from, They were the french peoples, though the drought came the royalty of france still thought they were above everyone else therefore placing a tax on the biggest amenities in the kingdom including Salt, Tobacco, and other highly purchased items in the Kingdom. Enraging the people of France and adding insult to injury, first the drought then taxation.

The war in some ways was successful but at the end of the day anytime over 40,000 people are murdered in cold blood I count that as a loss. Though the war created controversy in the kingdom. And finally the monarchy was destroyed when the king and queen was beheaded. There's never a win in death, at the time the French people were enraged creating radicals and the radicals are exactly what the word implies which is radical. Meaning extremists looking for any shape form or way to pursue one goal.

The war at Bastille during what was called the hour of death.

“Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), also known as Napoleon I, was a French military leader and emperor who conquered much of Europe in the early 19th century. Born on the island of Corsica, Napoleon rapidly rose through the ranks of the military during the French Revolution (1789-1799).” His first coalition was created and pursued at the very low age of just 26. After seizing political power in France in a 1799 coup d’état, he crowned himself emperor in 1804. Shrewd, ambitious and a skilled military strategist. Napoleon successfully waged war against various coalitions of European nations and expanded his empire.

Napoleon Bonaparte on his overly exaggerated horse in the pairntingthat he forced a man to do . When in fact he rode a mile and stood at only five feet six inches.

The man standing at only five feet and six inches basically fought for the French monarchy single handed. The man fought against his own to protect his King. But at what cost… Although the man had fought and protected his very nation well. The reign of terror repels everything good he had done. But he had flipped and crowned himself as said before, the emperor of France. He thought his power and smarts made him the best for the position. Which was not true, if it was he would not have been exiled send placing the bourbons in power.

Napoleon didn't know when to stop after his fast and sudden arrival to power. He went from general to the self proclaimed emperor of France once the people backing his movements voted yes to his plebiscite. Once he became emperor he ,loved to build an empire. He wanted to rule Europe and extend French power to the Americas. After the French Expedition failed miserably, Napoleon was desperate for money so one bad deal happened which went from the a part of the land to selling the entire Louisiana territory creating one of the worst deals imaginable named the “Louisiana purchase.”

Europe was wrecked by two decades of war revolving around France's efforts to spread its revolutionary Ideas, and the opposition of royalty. Led by Britain and Austria. War broke out in 1792 as Austria and Prussia invaded France, but were defeated at the Battle of Valmy. After Prussia was humiliated by. Napoleon opinion swung against France and stimulated and shaped German nationalism. As a result of the revolution countries such as Great Britain, Holland, Spain, Austria, and Prussia. We're worried enough about the revolution that they created a coalition and made war on France.
