Wat je gaat doen

Let's travel back in time to the year 1789, when France put an end to a Monarchy that had ruled for centuries… Did Marie-Antoinette really say « let them eat cake » and was Louis XVI a bad King? Why did the National Assembly that had just proclaimed the « Rights of Men » turn into a dictatorial government?

Through pictures of France then and now on a slide show, we'll walk in the footsteps of the key figures such as Voltaire, Lafayette, Robespierre, Dr. Guillotin and more. We will discuss the turning points leading up to the Revolution and ultimately the demise of Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette.

You will see on a map of Paris where each event took place so you can visit them on your next trip ☺ You will see exactly where the King, the Queen and many other high profile figures were executed with the Guillotine. You will understand why France went to war with the rest of Europe and relive the decisive events leading a young general to power: Napoleon!

This experience is adapted for anyone who has no or little knowledge of the revolution, as well as those familiar with it and wish to explore it further. All questions are welcome :)

LANGUAGE: English
LENGTH: Approx. 75 to 90 min based on Q&A.
ANY QUESTIONS? Feel free to contact me :)

MY OTHER ONLINE EXPERIENCES: Lafayette - Hero of two worlds; Rise of Napoleon; and coming soon: Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris!

Hi, I’m Thierry!

History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to make history entertaining and to show the human side of historical figures. I love sharing the little anecdotes behind the major events and I enjoy revealing the secrets of Paris hidden in the major landmarks or in the nooks and crannies.

Having spent 16 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, exhibitions, tours and reading hundreds of books.

So time travel with me on my Historic Walks and Online Experiences on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris, the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Top 10 Jewels Landmarks of Paris and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

I really enjoyed this experience. Thierry made the information easy to understand and it was very enjoyable. My friend and I were lucky in that we were the only two on the experience so we got to ask a lot of questions, and Thierry was very open to all of them. He was funny, engaging and really knew his stuff.

Thierry is a wonderful teacher. His knowledge of the French Revolution and what led up to it, and ultimately up to Napoleon, is very profound. His presentation is very well structured, he underlays all contents with pictures and cards. It's like being "there". Although I already knew some things, new connections became clear to me. I recommend this online experience without any restrictions. Thanks a lot Thierry. I am looking forward to seeing you soon personally on a tour in Paris.

Thierry is a passionate storyteller who told the story of the French Revolution perfectly for someone with very minimal knowledge about the topic! He helped correct some popular historical myths that I'll throw in at the next dinner party :)

Wonderful talk! Fascinating details, and very helpful map with labels and clear images. Well organized. Highly recommend. Possibly better than going to Paris because the geography is extensive and would be hard to accomplish on foot.

Thierry was absolutely excellent in his presentation on one of the most significant periods of Western history. He was organized, communicated very well, was fun and warm, and most of all, he was knowledgeable. One could tell that he loves history. I recommend this event to anyone that wants to understand France, and the word we live in today. My love and myself are separated by distance due to the quarantine and we found that this is a nice way to continue sharing experiences together.
