Flashcard Content Overview

France has an undoubtedly unique history. A leading country in Europe, it's seen a fair share of conflict and polarizing leadership. In the late 1700s, changing social and economic conditions, along with a state of discontent with accepted leadership, led to major unrest in France. A decade-long revolution saw French citizens terrorized after they revolted, an economic decline due to poor leadership, and the emergence of a new leader in Napoleon Bonaparte. His tenure was marked by authoritarian rule, territorial conquests, and conflicts amongst European powers.

Both the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Era changed the face of Europe for the future, and in this flash card set you get to discover and review key facts and information on each of these important historical periods.
