The revolution of 1830 and 1848-their impact/effect on France and Europe-Summary-The two later French Revolutions, the French Revolution of 1830 and the French Revolution of 1848, weretwo major events that not only impacted France, but the rest of Europe as well.The French Revolution of 1830, better known as the July Revolution, was triggered after Louis XVIII died,and his brother, Charles X, rose to power. He established the French Constitution that many citizens ofFrance opposed. On Tuesday, July 27, 1830, fighting broke out in the streets of Paris between militaryofficials and angered citizens. By that Thursday, the rebels gained control and forced Charles X to abdicateto Great Britain.The French Revolution of 1848 was started for reasons very similar to the July Revolution. The citizens ofFrance were once again angered by the way the country was being run, and were unhappy that only about1% of the population was allowed to vote. Thus, fighting once again broke out between French officialsand displeased citizens, and the citizens came out on top. King Louis Philippe fled to England and arepublic was then set up in France.Background of 1830-A couple of controversial decisions triggered the cause of the French Revolution of 1830, also known asthe July Revolution. After suffering from defeat in 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte abdicated the throne ofFrance. This led to the restoration of Louis XVIII to power as decided by the Congress of Vienna.When the restoration of King Louis took place after the French Revolution, King Louis XVIII wrote a newConstitution called "La Charte". This constitution gave the people rights similar to the "Bill of Rights" whichwould soon be taken away when Charles X takes the throne.After the French Revolution, King Charles X was chosen to rule hereditarily. This agitated France becausethey had no say in who would rule their country.After the French Revolution, France was left with old ideas of nationalism and democracy.When the July Ordinances were written, the people weren't given the rights they deserved, and theseideas gave the French people the thought to fight for what they wanted.
