The French Revolution is one of those few events in the history of mankind whose seismic aftershocks continue to reverberate down the centuries and far beyond mere man-made borders. The tempest that was unleashed when the people of Paris finally erupted and stormed the hated symbol of the Bastille, on July 14, 1789, did not just mark the end of a weak-willed 18th century monarch. Nor was it simply a case of downtrodden, poverty-stricken population rising up against their despised rulers in a desperate attempt to both seek revenge for their woes and to improve their lot. The Revolution was all these, but much more as well. The momentous events that shook France in the ten short years between 1789 and 1799 are among the most complex, fast-moving and sometimes contradictory of Europe's history.
