Introduction to French Revolution
In 1789 the people of France began the French Revolution. The revolution brought down their king and made France a republic—a country ruled by the people. This republic did not last, but France never returned to its old, unequal form of society. In addition, the ideas of the French Revolution spread to many other countries.
