Weather conditions had produced poor growing conditions for two years in a row and the cost of cereal grains and flour had risen sharply due to the shortage. Unavailability of… bread and the high prices and high taxes created unrest and even food riots.
Because it had its beginning among the majority and therefore it had staying power.
Good - the issue of the declaration of rights -It abolished the evil of the old regime -it established a limited monarchy -it set up 83 departments -it curbed the po…wer and wealth of the church Bad -The constitution didn't extend universal suffrage -lowered the clergy and made it alienated -the finance bulged and led to a rise in inflation -the mobs weren't kept in check -Slavery was still allowed -They were in debt
Nationalistic feeling were stimulated nationalism is a pride in one's country. it is a sense that nation provides the connection among those with a common language, history a…nd language.
The bad harvests rolled around in the 1780s due to poor weather conditions!
Effects of the French Revolution the Clergy and Nobles did not pay taxes and the king spent to much so France was in financial failure french rulers had feasts and peants had …barley anything to eat so it caused thievery and riots. The effects were laws changed power changed and many people died because one estate didn't want to be the one paying all the taxes
The seeds of the French Revolution were planted in part by philosophers of the Enlightenment spreading new ideals of justice, and in part by the dissatisfaction of the …population with the injustices that existed in society. King Louis XVI tried to deal with the crisis by assembling the old Estates General, a body of clergy, nobles, and commoners. But tile clergy and nobles clashed with the newer class of commoners. This latter group broke away and declared itself a National Assembly. Thinking that the king was planning to suppress the new assembly, an angry mob stormed the Bastille prison in Paris on July 14, 1789. Soon peasants revolted in the countryside and fighting erupted in the cities. The French's Revolution had begun. The National Assembly seized control. Traditional privileges were removed from the nobles and clergy, and the feudal system ended. In 1791, a new constitution changed the absolute monarchy into a constitutional monarchy. The National Assembly divided the Country into 83 departments of roughly equal size. When King Louis and Queen Marie Antoinette tried to flee the country, they were arrested and forced to sign the new constitution. Royalists throughout Europe tried to restore Louis to his former power. The French revolutionaries declared war against Austria and Prussia. The Revolution then entered a second, radical phase. Extremist Jacobins under Georges Jacques Danton, Jean Paul Marat, and Maximilien Robespierre came to power and set up the Commune of Paris. Massacres and anarchy followed. In September 1792, the National Convention abolished the monarchy and proclaimed the First French Republic. Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette were found guilty of treason, and the king was guillotined in January 1793. France suddenly found itself at war with all of Europe. The next phase, known as the Reign of Terror, saw a virtual dictatorship of the Committee of Public Safety led by Robespierre. Revolutionary zeal led to the death of 40,000 "enemies of the republic," including Queen Marie-Antoinette, by guillotining and mass drowning. Then Robespierre was arrested and himself guillotined, along with other terrorists. Another temporary government, the five man Directory, controlled France from 1795 to 1799. This period saw many elections, revolts, purges, and much general disorder. The end of the French's Revolution is marked by the beginning of the French Consulate under Napoleon Bonaparte.
The French revolution sent shock waves through the European monarchy. It left them all wondering who would be the next to be depose in a revolution. Many people around the w…orld were affected by the french revolution not just England. It changed the way that people thought about being run by a monarchy or a royal family. People started to realise that this was not the way that many countries should have been run and wanted a change. The main reason Australia is a democracy today was because of the french revolution and fight against the monarchy.
The cause was a country in serious debt, a couple of years of low yield crops that forced the price of grain up and forced the poor to do without. A starving citizen is unhapp…y and has a tendency to protest loudly. The huge debt had not been acquired by Louis XVI but by the two previous Kings. He was inept and indecisive and was not good at crisis management. The effect was a government and a citizenry in chaos that ended the monarchy and opted for what they hoped would be a more responsive form of government that could at least provide bread and the hope of a better future.
One good result of the Industrial Revolution is that it leads to may different inventions. And one bad result of the Industrial Revolution is that it pollutes the air too much…. It allowed common people to afford many things that were not available to people before, and gave them the ability to afford them by providing jobs.
The end of the absolute monarchy.
It caused other country's to want to have freedom,so when they were trying to stop wars they were just making more.
The negative aspects of the revolution are the guillotine and death of thousands. After the Revolution monarchy government resumed with out change. Many more revolutions happe…ned before the French achieved a Republic.
The French revolution A revolution is an event or a period of time when great and rapid changes take place. The causes of a revolution could be that the people want: a change …of government, more power, better living conditions, overall changes... The french revolution started because Louise the king of France married an Austrian princess called Marie Antoinette. Many people thought that Louis was alright but that Marie Antoinette was a lesbian... Also the peasants decided that it was not fair that they belonging to the third estate) should have to pay the biggest takes when the noblemen and clergy (priests, bishops etc) didn't. There were many other reasons for this revolution... The french revolution made a lot of changes happen... these changes were supposed to make France a fairer country, but it did not mean that it would be the end of the monarchy. Everyone in the National Assembly thought the king should still be the head of government but Louis refused to agree to the end of the feudalism or the declaration of the rights of man and the citizen... This was all a big change to France I hope my answer was useful to you, Thank you for reading... Michael age 13 Not really. The French and the American Revolution are emblematic of the moment and occidental human history when the Rationality and not the superstition or the violence of the force decide governing relationship.
The short term effects of the French Revolution: an unstable economy (inability to collect taxes), loss of hierarchy (1st, 2nd, 3rd estate dissolved, de-unification of France …(Normandy, Brittany, Gironde, Franch-comte, Duaphine, Provence), war with neighbors (every nation besides Russia).
It inspired the French to over throw their government to protect their natural rights.
It was divisive with many saying that the US owed France active and dedicated support while others felt that Europe's Wars were of no concern to Americans.
