In the late 1700s, a wave of revolutionary spirit spread across France, changing the nation forever. Over the course of several years, the French people struggled to find a replacement for the monarchy that had governed their nation for hundreds of years. Readers will discover how the people of France rose up to remove King Louis XVI from power, why they struggled to form a lasting new government, and how Napoleon Bonaparte took advantage of the situation to make himself emperor of France.
