About French Revolution 

The French Revolution was a major political upheaval in France that took place over a period of 17 years from 1789 to 1814. The French Revolution began as a protest by noblemen against the Roman Catholic Church. The protesters wanted to break away from the medieval system of government and create a modern nation-state. 
The French Revolution started with a protest by noblemen against the Roman Catholic Church. On November 6, 1789, French King Louis XVI went to Paris' Cathedral to offer his support for the Catholic Church. However, several high-ranking aristocrats from the National Assembly walked out in protest. They believed that the king should have no say in politics and should only represent the people- not himself. This led to open rebellion against King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette of France. They eventually were executed by guillotine along with several other aristocrats who had supported them. This event is known as the Storming of the Bastille and marked the start of the French Revolution.
