French Revolution for Kids

French Revolution

The French Revolution, from 1789 to 1799, was a major transformation of the social and political system of France, from absolute monarchy to a republic based on principles of citizenship and inalienable rights. The French Revolution, a violent period with a lot of bloodshed, was one of the most important events in the history of Europe. The cause of the revolution has been attributed to economic hardships, disenchantment with the monarchy, high unequal taxes, government apathy and other socio-political factors.
