the french revolution was a revolution that inspired many countries in europe. one of the disadvantages is that the kings of some of the countries were afraid of revolutions in their countries, and they began to destroy the rebels so as not to lose their thrones. the poets were happy about it and also the writers it inspired them as well and every one hoped for a great life. one of it's main principles was the equality between people infront of the low, and that we are all humans and should be treated as so. evrything went well until the frensh invasion on egypt and the some arabic countries. the attack was led by napolion bonaprat. they were defeated after staying in egypt for about three years. how can they be trusted while they said that the every nation has the right to deside whom it wants to its leader, every nation has the right to be free and to rule itself. but no doubt that if it wasn't for this revolution the contries would still be bequeathed

One of the primary tenants of the new French Republic was reason, or rationalism. Spirituality didn't exactly fall into this category, and the First Estate was subsequently dealt some pretty heavy hits. Revolutionaries wanted nothing to do with what they saw as a greedy and omnipresent regime. Churches and other institutions were effectively razed and a good number of priests found their heads rolling at the hands of the Republic. 

That's the First Estate.

Hope an expert can answer your question.

It affected them because since they too were absolute monarchies, they didn't want the people to take the power, like the french revolutionists. They wanted to be safe. this is why they made a coalation against france.
