About This Event
The French Revolution gave us so many good things in Western
civilization. However, living in Paris during the revolution could be
dangerous, especially if one was a noble or royalty. Moreover, the lightning
rod for the revolution was the French monarchy, occupied by Louis XVI and Marie
Antoinette. Consequently, they have not been treated well or fairly in the
telling of this tremendous story. Who were they really? Join Dr. Jerry Franz as
he takes this journey through the French Revolution, focusing on the lives and
thinking of Louis and Marie and the story of their children.
