Abstract The French Revolution shook the very foundations of monarchy, destroyed the last vestiges of feudalism, and planted the seeds of modern politics, diplomacy, and nationalism. This authoritative A&E Special masterfully brings the world of 18th-century France to life - a period driven by idealism, catalyzed by a society in crisis, and defined by carnage. Key personages such as Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Georges Danton, Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat, and Charlotte Corday are introduced.
