THE FRENCH REVOLUTION
Before the French Revolution France had a system of government and society which was called the OLD REGIME.
In the 1780's France was experiencing many economic difficulties. LOUIS XVI called a meeting of the NATIONAL ASSEMBLY in order to discuss solutions to the difficulties.
However during the NATIONAL ASSEMBLY the 3RD ESTATE with some help from other ESTATES declared a new government which they called the LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.
Members of the LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY swore an oath not to disband until a DECLARATION OF RIGHTS had been written which would set out rules and laws on how the new government of France would function. This oath was called the ________?
This period was very chaotic. Not only was there a revolution occuring within the country to try and establish a new government but other countries were attacking France in order to put LOUIS XVI back on the throne & stop the revolution. THE NATIONAL CONVENTION was unable to control the situation and another more ELECTED government, replaced it called the REPUBLIC.
Under ROBESPIERRE a government called the COMMITTE OF PUBLIC SAFETY was established.
2. Louis called a meeting of another group, not the National Assembly.
3. Please check your book for 3. It's hard to determine what the answers should be because of so many blanks.
4. Check this site for the name of the oath.
5. See Number 3's comments.
2. = Estates General
4. = Tennis court oath/ or pledge
3. = Limited Monarchy or National Assembly
5. = Legislative Assembly
Thank you so much:-)
does this make sense?
However during the ESTATES GENERAL the 3RD ESTATE with some help from other ESTATES declared a new government which they called the NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.
Ms. Sue does Estates General fit in this. Also could I just use National Assembly instead of Limited Monarchy.
One more thing, which one would you prefer, pledge or Tennis Court Oath.
With help from other estates doesn't make sense. There were only three estates.
Check this site.
It's usually called the Tennis Court Oath.
