FreNcH RevOLutIon....Or KiLLinG RevolutioN??

 17th Jan 2011

 I've come across a series of documentary of French Revolution.. it is interesting to watch history being told rather than reading it. From these documentary i've learn the real horror behind the French Revolution, the people behind the revolution, the execution of the monarchy. It describe how Mary Antoinette were feeling before the execution and many sordid detail of the gruesome events during the revolution. So many...many.... death. I am glad our country doesn't have to go through this sort of thing. You can check it out at the link below

French Revolution short documentary~click Here~

Here are some of the things included in the video ~(sort of a summary~)

The Wedding -The bride & the groom.
starting from the wedding of King Louis the 16th to Mary Antoinette from Austria , the 7 years without producing an heir, (king Louis have phimosis-heheh korng cari sendri arr maksud dia :) to the state of the french citizens that lived in  poverty due to mismanagement of the monarch.

King Louis  is not a natural born leader, he is so clueless and doesn't know anything about governing a country and he is inept in making decision.

His bride only focus is to live a life of luxury that her title can give her. She especially like making weird and bizarre hairdo. Even though the country is in financial crisis she keep on spending like nothing is wrong. Mary Antoinette was given the nickname "Madame Deficit. "   

one of the weirdest hairstyle of Mary Antoinette.Is that a ship??
Mary Antoinette was oblivious to the suffering of her people. She was later on chase by a mob of angry working women in her own castle, she and her husband were force to fled to France to be a prisoner of the revolution.


The Guillotine

~the beheading~

The French revolution gives birth to Guillotine.
So many life were taken by the sharp razor of the Guillotine. The Killing started in 1789 when king Louis troop went to France to capture the rebels. That is when the citizen fought back by forming the National Guard and they seize control of the prison ~Bastille~(because  there is where the gunpowder were stored) The governor of the Bastille ~Bernard de Launay~were dragged by the angry mob to the street... he was stabbed and kick until he shout " let me die". The crowd were eager to oblige and he was shot and stab. A revolutionary tradition was born his severed head was paraded on a pike. Later on most of the killing lead to beheading and the guillotine were use to represent fear and as warning to those who oppose the Revolution..... It soon earn a nickname ~The National Razor~

~Bernard de Launay's head were paraded on a pike~


Can you imagine this sort of thing happening in  our own country? People just willingly killing other people, riot all around........
Eventually the killing became the solution to any problem they encounter. If you even express sympathy to the victims, you will be next. Even the revolutionist such as Robespierre eventually succumb to the Guillotine.

to be continued...
