    A revolution usually means a change in something. Take the American, French and Russian revolutions. They all sought for a change in the style of government(the American one was also breaking away from England). In the French Revolution, the French were tired of the king taxing just the third estate(the poor and middle class) while the first and second estate(the rich) were exempted from taxes. The King wanted to keep the rich happy. The middle class then rebelled and overthrew the king. And then they guillotined him and his wife. And then the radicals took over and tried to make everything equal but they just ended up killing a lot of people after they were paranoid that these people were supporters for the king. You should check it out. In the Russian revolution, the Bolsheviks overthrew the tsar after people were tired of food shortages and the tsar's incompetence in leading the army(it was during ww1). So they got rid of him and the communists took over. Again, very interesting. And there are a lot of comparisons between these two revolutions.
