What was the Reign of Terror?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What was the Reign of Terror?       
What was the Reign of Terror? The French Revolution was opposed by neighbouring countries who feared that unrest would spread across Europe. A Committee of Public Safety was set up in France to defend the revolution, and they executed any person who might oppose the committee.

This period became known as the Reign of Terror. It lasted for about a year, and during this time around 18,000 people were put to death. The French aristocracy was almost entirely wiped out, together with any political opponents of the regime.

The Reign of Terror finally came to an end when the head of the Committee of Public Safety, Robespierre, was accused of treason.
