Theme: Change–Collapse of Government
You may use any situation from your study of global history and geography in which the collapse of a government led to significant changes in a country or region. Some suggestions you might wish to consider include collapse of the Roman Empire, collapse of Louis XVI’s government, collapse of the Tokugawa shogunate, collapse of Czar Nicholas II’s government, collapse of the Ottoman Empire, collapse of the Nationalist government in China [Guomindang], collapse of Batista’s government in Cuba, fall of Reza Pahlavi’s government in Iran, breakup of Yugoslavia, and collapse of the Soviet Union.
You are not limited to these suggestions.
Do not use a revolution from United States history in your answer.
