    France

    Causes of revolution The French Revolution from 1774 to October 1789

    Use the following sources to answer Question 1.

    Madame de la Tour du Pin, lady-in-waiting to Marie Antoinette, writing about the impact of the harvest

    crisis on the people of Paris.

    Madame de la Tour du Pin, Escape from Terror, p.79

    Source 2

    Arthur Young writing about the food crisis in France on the 10th June 1789.

    Arthur Young, Travels in France during the years 1787, 1788 and 1789, p135

    At the beginning of the spring of 1789, which followed a terrible winter that had been very hard

    upon the poor, the Duc d'Orleans (Egalite) was very popular in Paris. He had sold, the previous

    year, a large part of the pictures of the splendid gallery of his palace, and it was generally stated that

    the eight million francs received from this sale had been devoted to relieving the misery of the

    people during the rigorous winter which had just ended. On the other hand, nothing was said,

    rightly or wrongly, of the charities of the Princes of the Royal family and of the King and Queen.

    The King also never appeared in public. Shut up at Versailles, or hunting in the surrounding woods,

    he suspected nothing, foresaw nothing, believed nothing.

    The 10th. Everything conspires to render the present period in France critical: the want of bread is

    terrible: accounts arrive every moment from the provinces of riots and disturbances, and calling in

    the military, to preserve the peace of the markets. The prices reported are the same as I found at

    Abbeville and Amiens 5f. (2.) a pound for white bread, and 3f. to 4f. for the common sort, eaten

    by the poor: these rates are beyond their faculties, and occasion great misery. At Meudon, the

    police, that is to say the intendant, ordered that no wheat should be sold on the market without the

    person taking at the same time an equal quantity of barley. What a stupid and ridiculous regulation,

    to lay obstacles on the supply, in order to be better supplied; and to shew the people the fears and

    apprehensions of government, creating thereby an alarm, and raising the price at the very moment

    they wish to sink it. I have had some conversation on this topic with well-informed persons, who

    have assured me that the price is, as usual, much higher than the proportion of the crop demanded

    Russia

    Causes of revolution The Russian Revolution from 1896 to October 1917

    Use the following sources to answer Question 1.

    Source 1

    Taken from the Bloody Sunday Petition by Father Gapon (January 1905)

    Sovereign, there are thousands of us here; outwardly we are human beings, but in reality

    neither we nor the Russian people as a whole are provided with any human rights, even the right

    to speak, to think, to assemble, to discuss our needs, or to take measure to improve our

    conditions. They have enslaved us and they did so under the protection of your officials, with

    their aid and with their cooperation. They imprison and send into exile any one of us who has the

    courage to speak on behalf of the interests of the working class and of the people. They punish us

    for a good heart and a responsive spirit as if for a crime. To pity a down-trodden and tormented

    person with no rights is to commit a grave crime.
