“The tree of liberty could not grow were it not watered with the blood of kings.” – Bertrand Barère de Vieuzac
Happy Bastille Day! Prompted by the earlier dismissal of the King’s finance minister, Jacques Necker, Parisians stormed the Bastille in the center of Paris on this day in 1789. Although the prison only held seven inmates at the time, the event become the flash point of the revolution. Soon, cries of Liberté, égalité, fraternité would become a national motto. The armed conflict would continue with the beheading of King Louis XVI and end with Bonaparte’s coup of the government.
