In which John Green examines the French Revolution, and gets into how and why it differed from the American Revolution. Was it the serial authoritarian regimes? The guillotine? The Reign of Terror? All of this and more contributed to the French Revolution not being quite as revolutionary as it could have been. France endured multiple constitutions, the heads of heads of state literally rolled, and then they ended up with a megalomaniacal little emperor by the name of Napoleon. But how did all of this change the world, and how did it lead to other, more successful revolutions around the world? Watch this video and find out. Spoiler alert: Marie Antoinette never said, “Let them eat cake.” Sorry.

8:00 That's not Robespierre being guillotined. It's Couthon. Robespierre is the one who is holding a handkerchief on the left

The revolution happened in 1800, but tennis was invented in 1873. How did they meet in an indoor tennis room if tennis didn't exist yet????
