Oh, Europe

Episode 7: The People’s Will and the Emperor’s Order

The Enlightenment starts to dominate the world of ideals all over the world. But before the French take to the streets to fight for liberty, equality and fraternity, they need some practical instruction from America. The revolution becomes an export hit throughout Europe. Only the British pin their hopes on the industrial revolution. And a man by the name of Beethoven composes our European theme tune. Symphony Number 9.
