On this day in history, August 16th 1793, the Levée en Masse is decreed by the National Convention during the French Revolution. The Levée en Masse qualified every able bodied male for service in the French military without the possibility of exemption. However, unlike other policies of conscription that bred anger and dissention, the Levée was instrumental in consolidating French national pride and unity. France, after the Revolution, was almost constantly at war with the powers surrounding it. These wars were sparked by reactionary powers wishing to squash the radicalism that destroyed a well established monarchy and by the Revolutionary government's own radicalism and desire to spread their beliefs to other parts of Europe. The Levée en Masse rose an army of more than 1.5 million men and while training all of these soldiers was challenging, the army saw surprising successes on the battlefield.

The room where it all started. On June 20th, 1789, the members of the Third Estate took the Tennis Court Oath, voting "not to separate until the constitution of the kingdom is established." #versailles #frenchrevolution #tenniscourtoath #thirdestate #revolutionfrancaise #révolutionfrançaise #salledujeudepaume #france #1789 #history #frenchhistory #histoire #histoiredefrance #revoluçãofrancesa #instadaily #instapic #frenchrepublic

This painting from 1783 by Élisabeth-Louise Vigée-Lebrun depicting Marie Antoinette holding a pink rose may be the most well-known portrait of the last queen of France before the revolution.
Born November 2, 1755 in Vienna, Austria, she married Louis XVI of France and became the Dauphine.
Despite her initial popularity, her admires decreased rapidly as she demonstrated her love for gambling, excessive spending and ignoring her duties. During the revolution she became known as "Madame Déficit" because the country's financial crisis was blamed on her lavish spending and social outings.
During the revolution, her family was under house arrest in Tuileries Palace in October, 1789. The attack on Tuileries in 1792 forced the family to take refuge at the Assembly and later imprisoned at the Temple.
The monarchy was established in September and the two day trail ended in Marie being convicted of high treason. She was executed by guillotine on the Palace de la Révolution on October 16 1793.

This was an amazing read! A remarkable account of an extraordinary man - General Alexandre Dumas. Yes, if the name seems familiar it's because he was the father of THE Alexandre Dumas who wrote such classics as The Count of Monte Cristo. Little did i know when I read the book of fiction back then, that it was based on the true story of none other than his own father! General Alexandre Dumas was by all accounts an outstanding individual - a man of valour and unyielding principles, gifted in combat and strength- a thoroughly admirable and accomplished man. That he rose to be a general at the time of the French Revolution is made even more remarkable given his origins as a bastard son of a French aristrocrat and his black slave. I confess that reading about him made me have a crush on him. That the book was a riveting read was partly due to the exploits of this man, and partly due to the marvelous writing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in biographies, history or just amazing adventures. #alexandredumas #generalalexandredumas #frenchrevolution #biography #pulitzerprize #extraordinary #prose #booksirecommend #booklover #booklover #bookoftheday #bookstagram #theblackcount #tomreiss

Last week I visited the Trappist monastery of Orval. I think I saw a monk's lifestyle I could get on board with! All day spent brewing spectacular beer in equally spectacular isolated forested surroundings, within the grounds of a gorgeous monastery. The abbey has quite the history since its founding in 1132, and the ruins of the old abbey which was destroyed during the French Revolution is still standing today. Well worth the trip guys, and the beer is certainly God-like! #orval #abbey #monastery #ruins #serenity #orvalvert #frenchrevolution #forest #tranquil #pilgrimage #gopro #travel #busking #BUSKtheGLOBE
