unit iv: Enlightenment, French Revolution, and Napoleon
The French Revolution proved to be a watershed event in Western history, as the ideals of the revolution influenced and guided other European countries' governments and societies. Old regimes of Europe fell, political boundaries changed, and people challenged the authority of traditional rulers. Following the ideals of the French Revolution, reforms took place, constitutions were written, and new laws arose. Revolutionary ideas met opposition, and conservatives and reactionaries fought back by working to prevent revolution and to restore traditional rulers. pearson
