Maximilian Robespierre Quiz

The Maximilian Robespierre Quiz.

Revolutions breed disorder. In that disorder, the strong rise to power and the weak shrink from it. Of course, strength is not the only factor in determining the worth of a man. This is apparent as we study the odd figure that is Maximillian Robespierre. The man was an outspoken rebel against the status quo.

When his homeland of France began see rapid and unpredictable change, Robespierre cleverly positioned himself in places that would only solidify his power. He risked everything he had in the hopes of riding the tide of revolution to the top. In a way, he succeeded. The French Revolution was an attempt to address and fix a plethora of issues that plagued the commoners of the nation. However, there were several individuals of the higher classes who utilized their influence in order to better steer the tide of the Revolution. When Robespierre did this, he toppled a monarchy. What followed, however, was proof that he was not entirely able to control the forces which he was trying to wield in this period.

Ultimately, he was swallowed up by an iron tide he tried to rule. Before this, Robespierre was an accomplished statesman and orator. It wasn’t for no reason that the man was able to lead a nation. By studying Robespierre, we gain insight into the nature of rule and power. What’s more, he provides great insight into the machinations of the French Revolution in its entirety.
