2  Western philosophy grounded in the 18 th century. It held reason above all other abstracts or concepts of legitimacy.  This was not a singular school of thought, but rather a vast collection of rationality-based philosophies.  Took hold in Europe, the American Colonies, Russia, Scandinavia, parts of Latin America, and still some more.  Scholars refer to the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars as the endpoint(s) of the Age of Reason.


4  The great earthquake struck the Kingdom of Portugal on Saturday 1 1755.  Anywhere between 10,000 to 100, 000 people may have fallen because of it.  Besides that, the event severely disturbed the Kingdom’s colonial ambitions and strengthened pre- existing political tensions.  Modern geologists believe it may have reached close to a magnitude 9 on the moment magnitude scale.  The Lisbon Earthquake is the deadliest in recorded history.


6  Started 1793 June 27– Ended 1794 July 27  Extremely violent duration that lasted one year and a month after the start of the French Revolution; based on political rivalry between Girondins and the Jacobins.  The Guillotine, otherwise known as “National Razor”.  16,000 to 40, 000 dead  Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Antoine Lavoisier, etc.  Execution of several Reign of Terror leaders, including Robespierre, officially ended The Terror.


8  The Bastion de Saint-Antoine was originally built as a gate during the Hundred Years war and became a prison after the conflict was done.  The first king to send prisoners there was Louis XIII.  Rumors began to spread amongst the common people that a fair deal of arms and gunpowder were being stored there; they demanded to see this.  The storming of the Bastille, which occurred on July 14 1789, was one of the key events leading directly to the French Revolution.  July 14 th is now celebrated annually as Fête Nationale or ‘ Bastille Day’.
