Question and answer
what were the causes and effect of the french revolution and how did the revolution lead to the napoleonic era
The major cause of the French Revolution was the disputes between the different types of social classes in French society. The French Revolution of 1789-1799 was one of the most important events in the history of the world. [ The Revolution led to many changes in France, which at the time of the Revolution, was the most powerful state in Europe. The Revolution led to the development of new political forces such as democracy and nationalism. It questioned the authority of kings, priests, and nobles. The Revolution also gave new meanings and new ideas to the political ideas of the people. The
French Revolution was spread over the ten year period between 1789 and 1799. The primary cause of the revolution was the disputes over the peoples' differing ideas of reform. Before the beginning of the Revolution, only moderate reforms were wanted by the people. An example of why they wanted this was because of king Louis XIV's actions. At the end of the seventeenth century, King Louis XIV's wars began decreasing the royal finances dramatically. This worsened during the eighteenth century. The use of the money by Louis XIV angered the people and they wanted a new system of government. The writings of the philosophes such as Voltaire and Diderot, were critical of the government. French Revolution removed the king and queen from power and installed a democratic form of government. Other countries surrounding France, i.e. England, Prussia, Austria, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Ottoman Empire, and Italy were not prepared to abandon their monarchies. Eventually Napoleon was crowned Emperor of France and his country set about revolutions across Europe, which led to the Napoleonic era. ]
