One of the major causes of the French Revolution was the "noble revolt" against paying taxes. Then when Enlightenment ideas drifted into Europe, especially France, people's perceptions about government and sovereignty started to change and they wanted reform.

The French government was dealing with a fiscal crisis of a cataclysmic proportion that had not been created by Louis XVI. It was a debt that had been inherited (It should be noted that he was ineffective and indecisive and that he was inept at best in the handling of something called crisis management.)

In France in 1848 the ruler Louis Philippe's leadership was unacceptable to the common people of the time. Philippe's ulta anti change policies were challenged by "republicans" who opposed monarchy along with "liberals" who were against the censorship of the press, governmental corruption and voting restrictions. Workers in cities were poor and they had no voting powers. Rioting in the streets of Paris, caused Philippe to flee France.

The 1848 revolutionists proclaimed a new government, the "Second French Republic". Universal male suffrage was proclaimed and guaranteed. A new leader, Louis Napoleon, a nephew of the great Napoleon, was overwhelmingly elected President of the new government.

The supporters of the new republic expected a stable government, economic prosperity and even a new, and higher level of foreign respect. Louis Napoleon took on the name of Napoleon III.

He legalized unions, created a new constitution, a new legislature, and became to many a leader with democratic intentions. He was a pretender, however, and in 1852 he was proclaimed Emperor, and he changed the second republic to the

second French Empire.

Not too much time passed and soon it became evident that the reforms of the 1848 revolution were tainted by Napoleon's secret police, returning to press restrictions, and granting the unions limited rights to strike. The election process fought for by the 1848 revolution, became state -controlled elections.
