Best Answer

The French Revolution started in 1789. There were a number of factors that led to the Revolution, including a series of wars that nearly bankrupt the crown. Louis XVI financial support of the American Revolution pushed the French debt even higher.

The last major war that pushed France to the brink of financial ruin was the Seven Years War which ended in 1763, and resulted in France loosing it's North American colony, and some islands in the Carribean. It also devastated the French Navy to the point it never really recovered.
