La Commune de Paris by BeatrizAlbano

Few french historical events have been so (in)famous, heavily debated and politiced as the Commune.... A lot of things had been said about it on all ranges of the political spectrum, with details not always so clear.

Suitably, it had been portrayed (with varying accuracy and neutrality levels) in many medias and art pieces, french and foreign.

The Paris Commune (French: La Commune de Paris) was a revolutionary and socialistic government that briefly ruled Paris from 18 March until 28 May 1871. Though elected as the city council (in French, the "commune"), the Commune eventually proclaimed its own authority to govern all of France. The killing of two French army generals by soldiers of the Commune's National Guard and the refusal of the Commune to accept the authority of the French government led to its harsh suppression by the regular French Army in "La Semaine sanglante" ("The Bloody Week") beginning on 21 May 1871. Debates over the policies and outcome of the Commune had significant influence on the ideas of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.
