Episode 59 “The Purge of the Girondins Part I”

With the revolution paralysed by factional feuds, the people of Paris moved to break the deadlock. This episode explores the weeks immediately preceding the Purge of the Girondins, including how Brissot and his allies rally support across the country. It also examines the differing opinions of historians in relation to the actions of the Girondins in early 1793. With foreign plots and rumblings of civil war, there’s plenty to unpack!
