What you'll do

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 :)

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 come time travel with me on my Historic Walks (or Online Experiences) on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris; La Fayette; the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Kings & Queens; and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

Thierry is an excellent guide on a journey through the history of the French Revolution, filled with interesting facts and great images, and an overall highly polished presentation. It was great to revisit some stories or concepts that I had known about before, but to also learn so much more than I was aware of. I completely recommend this experience!

Having recently re-read "Tale of Two Cities" I wanted to find out more about the French Revolution. Thierry did not disappoint! His experience is very informative and detailed, covering the full timeline of the Revolution. Thierry is very engaging and the time flew by. It's a great value and you will learn a lot. I'll definitely consider taking one of Thierry's in-person tours if I ever visit Paris.
