In France the King ruled in the Ancien Regime.This means he had the divine right to rule.He thought he got his power from God. At first there was an assembly to make a constitution and then there was a legislative assembly called the "Convention Nationale". A policy of terror led by Robespierre and which caused the beheading of the king Louis XVI put an end at the first revolutionnary government. So by 1794 a new governmental system was created : the "Directoire", with an executive power of five persons and two legislative assemblies : the "Conseil des Anciens" (elder's council) and the "Conseil des Cinq Cents" (council of the five hundred). Napoleon put an end at the revolutionnary period with his coup of 1799 and he founded the "Consulat".

France co-worked with the US during the American revolution (not the French!), because the Americans wanted to rid themselves of the UK government and wanted to be an independent nation and the UK had always been the arch enemy of France. That was the only reason the French helped the Americans achieve their independence.

It was the government which took control of France after the royalty were removed. The new Republic of France was inspired by the US Republic, but the similarity mostly ends there.
