A map illustrating the outbreak and course of the French Revolution (aka The Revolution of 1789 to distinguish it from the ones of 1830 and 1848) and the consequential conflicts between France, the largest and most populous state in Western Europe, and the other European powers. The French Revolution was not a single occurrence but an evolution of events that started with the collapse of the Estates-General, the dissolution of the monarchy, and the establishment of the French Republic, and it lasted until 1799 when Napoleon Bonaparte's coup d’état abolished the five-member governing Directorate and appointed him 'first consul' and ushered in the beginning of the Napoleonic era.
