Trivia Question: The French Revolution is considered to have begun with the storming of what prison?
Answer: The Bastille
The Bastille held debt prisoners and suspected saboteurs. This is one of the primary reasons why the revolutionaries targeted that location for their demonstration. Capturing the Bastille also served a second purpose since its armories provided the revolutionaries with valuable weapons.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
