People were starving while the Aristocrats were living in luxury. So they finally had enough, stormed the Bastille, and then stormed the palace. They rounded up all the aristocrats and went on a bloody rampage by guillotining most of the aristocrats and their staff. This is when Napoleon Bonaparte, who was a Captain in the French Army, took over the command, became a general, and led the French revolution.
