I would tell it just like a story. I say in 1789 the people of France began the French Revolution because the revolution would bring down their king and made France a republic, a country ruled by the people. And at the end Napoleon brought peace back to France.

The king was a bad man and had many bad men who were taking things that didn't belong to them from people like us, that isn't a good thing right!?

So people got angry and upset & called others who were also angry & upset to go to the bad & take back what they took & put the bad ones in jail... and everyone elected new people to look after everyone..

The French Republic had a group called the National Convention which was later taken over by the Jacobins, an extremist group. The Jacobins began a period called the Reign of Terror. They arrested anyone who was against the revolution and killed many, including King Louis XVI in 1793. It was only in 1795 that a less extremist government called the Directory took over. A new constitution declined the right to vote for all those who could not pay taxes. During the Revolution, a General named Napoleon Bonaparte became famous. He was a skilled leader and helped expand the territories of France, including a victory over the powerful Austrian Army. It was in 1799 that Napoleon Bonaparte did away with the Directory and the Revolution came to an end. He made himself the leader of a new government called the Consulate. Napoleon brought peace back to France. He rewrote the old French Feudal laws and created a new Napoleonic Code of laws, which remains in France even to this day. Napoleon declared himself the Emperor of France in 1804. France became a republic in 1871.
