In 1789, the absolute monarchy doesn’t exist any more and the French people are just about to take on a political role and to learn what sovereignty implies. « The French Revolution has been accomplished in the name of the people », « A revolution for and by the people ». But who are these people that are now reigning over France? Discover those who made the French revolution in this Café Histoire.
