nationalism in France. The Tennis Court Oath was a big event in the French Revolution, because it was the first time people realized that they had power against their government. This was a social, and political factor that lead to french nationalism. It was social because it gave the third estate much more power, and it was political, because it lead to the formation of the National Assembly. The Tennis Court Oath took place when Louis XVI locked everyone out of the Estates General. The people met next door in the tennis court, and decided that they weren't gonna stop meeting, until they had a new constitution. This caused the formation of the National Assembly. Jacque Necker Factors Leading to French Nationalism Bread was the main source of food for the French people at this time. When the population spiked from 20 million to 26 million, bread became very scarce. This threw the people into turmoil, because Louis wasn't doing anything to help. Riots broke out, and people were killed. Bread was a geographical factor because no grain was available to make bread with. Bread The Bastille The Bastille was a fortress in France that was seen by the people as a symbol of death, horror, and feudalism. When the people were threatened by the king's soldiers, they used the Bastille to provide the gunpowder needed to fight back. The people savagely raided the Bastille, after Jacque Necker was fired. They killed the guards and beat the governor. This was a sign from the people that they weren't to be taken lightly. This influenced the revolution socially, because it was the rise of the third estate. It was the end of feudalism. Just as the economy was going down the drain, the population raised 6 million people. This made it very hard to feed the entire nation. This had a huge social impact, because the third estate couldn't handle the extra mouths to feed. Worst Winter One of the reasons there was a scarcity of bread, was because France had the worst winter in 90 years. This killed many people's crops, and farmers lost their source of food. This is a geographical factor because the weather was the thing that caused it. Population Spike The Deceleration of the Rights of Man The Deceleration of the Rights of Man was a deceleration that ensured the equality of all. It was made by the National Assembly in 1789. It abolished class distinction, and stated that sovereignty belonged to the people. This deceleration also increased the freedom of press. The freedom of press gave the revolution a larger voice, which helped it expand. This deceleration was a political, social, and economical factor. Political, because it defined that sovereignty belonged to the people. Social, because it got rid of feudalism. And economical, because without Feudalism, many people were able to pursue a job based on their talents, which allowed a flourishing economy. Jean- Paul Marat Jean- Paul Marat was a former doctor, that had lost everything. Marat was an extremely opinionated, and paranoid man. He was able to funnel these emotions through a newspaper that came after the Deceleration of the Rights of Man. He used his voice to rally the people against the Nobility, which fueled the revolution. He was able to turn the people against the king on the slightest rumors. He was a political factor, because his loud opinions helped tear down the aristocratic form of government.
