Many historians have argued that the French Revolution introduced the world to the concept of “nationhood” Two of the central ideas of the French Revolution (1789-1799) were that France was a "nation" and that the national government must protect the liberties of citizens. Exactly what these concepts (the nation and liberty) meant in practice, however, changed as the revolution developed.
