The Rise of the French Republic

Muqsit Buchh and David Kim

Conflict

After the Franco-Prussian War, Germany and other states are now unified Nation-States, leading to the weakening of the liberal France. After Napoleon III was captured the people needed to find a new, stable form of government.

Military Conflicts

This began with the Franco-Prussian War, which started when Bismarck accused William I of Prussia of insulting France. Overall, this war was a loss for the French, Prussia crushed France and captured Napoleon III. This defeat spelled the end of the empire of liberalism. Post war conflict occurred during the Paris Commune, during which socialists attempted to take over the government in Paris. Eventually, they were put down by the National Assembly in a bloody conflict at the conflict of 20,000.

Resolution

This smaller conflict, compared to the French Revolution, was possibly even more revolutionary in terms of changes in government. This is because the monarchy had ceased to rule major power, and France saw the rise of a new republic.
