Peasants French Revolution Essay

Along with the peasants, the bourgeoisie felt the burden of poor economic times in pre-revolutionary France.

Prices were rising but wages were not, taxes were steep and this left the bourgeoisie angry toward Louis XVI whom they left responsible.

It should also be said that not all the nobles were against the king.

The young nobles, and some of the old ones, who had not yet gotten obscene on their own power still supported the king.

With no land, the nobles saw themselves to be as common as the common folk.

Even in their arrogance they saw that they were losing power.

These people were called Royalists, and were beheaded for their faith.

Before their own selfish revolution, the nobles had lost so much power, that their economic and political situation affected the other people in France, and led to the French Revolution and remotely, the rise of the middle class.

Now would be a good time to explain that the Revolution was not just one Revolution, it was a "series of revolutions, very different in their aims..."6 and subsequently the revolte nobiliaire began in 1787.

It was a revolt limited to the aristocrats, however, because they wanted to get all the power of France.
