What were the demands of the French people?

In the French Revolution, women demanded the same and equal political rights as males, such as the right to vote, be elected to the assembly, and occupy political office. They were dissatisfied with the 1791 constitution because their requests were not met.

Women's activism in the revolution led to a new awareness of their rights. They demanded equality before the law, access to education, employment opportunities, protection from abuse, and the ability to own property. In addition, they wanted control over their own finances and sexual relations.

These are just some of the many demands made by the people on their government. There were also demands made for economic change such as abolishing feudalism and establishing a democratic society. Finally, there were demands made for cultural change including free public education for all children and the elimination of discrimination based on class, religion, or gender.

These are just some examples of many demands made by the people on their government during this time period. There were also demands made for social change including improvements in working conditions, health care, and living standards more generally. Finally, there were demands made for environmental change including protection of the environment and reduction of pollution.

These are just some examples of many demands made by the people on their government. There were also demands made for economic change such as abolishing slavery and establishing a democratic society.

Why did the French want equality?

What Motivated the French to Demand Equality? The French were justified in their desire for equality. Inequality was common in the ancient administration before to 1789. The privileged orders were the nobles and clergy. They were not subject to direct taxes such as the taille, or land tax. Their wealth came from lands and goods that belonged to the king, which they could not sell. The middle class was made up of free men who owned some property. They included farmers who had their own farms or small parcels of land, but also traders, professionals, and managers without any particular status besides being owners of capital.

The lower class was made up of slaves and peasants. Although slaves played an important role in the economy of France and other European countries at that time, they accounted for only about 10% of the population. Of the remaining 90%, the majority were farmers who worked the land owned by the nobles and the church.

In addition to being unjust, inequality was harmful to political stability. If the lower class grew increasingly oppressed, it could turn against those people who held power over it. This is what happened in France in 1648 when the peasant revolt broke out. It was quickly suppressed, but the spirit of rebellion remained among the people.

To avoid these problems, it was necessary to reduce the economic and social differences between the different classes.

Why were French citizens upset with the French monarchy?

The French government instigated a popular uprising against the French monarchy. The first reason was that monarchs and nobles lived in luxury while ordinary people were impoverished. The second reason was Louis's adamant desire to be an absolute ruler. Finally, Louis refused to share authority with the overwhelming majority of the people. These events led to the French Revolution.

The American Revolution was also about breaking away from a monarchy. However, it was more about freedom and liberty than just once alone with king George III.

In conclusion, the French and American Revolutions were both fought against kings who ruled over their countries without sharing power between themselves and their people.

What conditions led the French to revolt?

What circumstances prompted the French people to revolt? As a result of the French recession, tensions rose as jobs were lost and crops were poor. Socialists and utopian radicals debated the appropriate form of governance, while the incumbent administration was accused of corruption. As a result of the tension, there were violent uprisings.

The French Revolution began in 1789 with the establishment of the First Republic. It is commonly considered to have ended with the execution of Louis XVI in 1793 and the start of the Second Republic a year later. However, the term "French Revolution" is also used to describe other political changes that occurred within France after 1789. These include the Reign of Terror (1793-1794), the Constitution of 1791, the Empire (1804-1814), and the Bourbon Restoration (1815).

The French Revolution can be divided into two periods: the Revolutionary Period and the Napoleonic Era.

During the Revolutionary Period, known for its violence, Paris declared itself a republic and established laws that are still in use today. The supreme authority then passed to five committees who ruled by decree. In 1795, a new constitution was drafted and approved by a national assembly dominated by members of the revolutionary elite. This constitution created a single-chambered legislative body called the National Convention which was responsible for drafting or approving laws and exercising other powers delegated by the state government.

What were the political problems in the French Revolution?

The French Revolution happened due to a variety of factors, including inadequate economic policies, ineffective leadership, and exploitative political and social systems. The authoritarian monarchy, insolvency, and wasteful royal expenditures were among the primary reasons of the French Revolution. The American colonists' rejection of the British monarchy's attempt to impose taxes on them through Parliament was another factor that led to their war for independence. After winning this war, the Americans created their own government based on laws instead of on royal decrees. The new government was able to avoid many problems that had plagued the old one; for example, it did not depend on grants of land for support which allowed it to better represent its people.

During the French Revolution, many political problems arose which prevented it from achieving its goals. The problem of representation occurred when members of the National Assembly were unable to agree on how they would be elected. Also, there was no clear line of authority between the three branches of government - executive, legislative, and judicial. Finally, there were severe conflicts of interest within the ruling class which prevented them from being loyal to the nation. For example, the king was both head of state and head of church which meant he could not openly oppose the revolution. However, he did not want to compromise his position so he tended to take a neutral stance on most issues.

What about France’s social structure caused unrest?

The French government was in debt. They summoned the estates general, which sparked even more discontent. France's people would rather die than love freely, therefore they determined to fight for their independence even if it meant dying in the process.

France had no real army at this time so they asked for help from the English king Charles VI. However, the English refused so France turned to their old enemy Spain. A Spanish army under the command of Louis XII defeated the English at Saint-Quentin en-Yvelines on August 22, 1453.

This marked the beginning of France as an independent country. Before this date, France was just one part of the larger European kingdom of England. Now that it has become clear that France is not going to accept its status as a vassal state, there is war between them. The conflict will last until 1494 when France defeats England at the battle of Juarez. This ends the War of Castilian Succession and makes France ruler of both Spain and France.

The French monarchy will continue to grow in power and later on produce many great artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Giuseppe Verdi.

However, this also leads to the first revolution in 16th century France where the people decide to overthrow the monarchy because they believe the royal family is ruining France.
