Explain the Reign

Answer :

The reign of terror was started in 1793 and continued till 1794.

• Maximillian Robespierre followed a policy of severe control and punishment. He was the leader of the Jacobins club whose members were the people who were not wealthy like shoemakers, pastry cooks, watchmakers, servants, etc.

• He jailed and punished all those people who didn’t agree with his policies and Guillotined (it is a device, named after Dr Guillotin, which has two poles and a blade with which the person is beheaded) the individuals whom he found guilty.

• Equal distribution of meat and bread, maximum upper limit were set on wages and prices, citizens were made to eat loaf made of whole wheat, churches were closed down and their buildings were made into barracks and offices, etc, were some of the policies followed by him.

These were the reasons that this period is considered as the reign of terror.
