The Timeline of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848
The French people started a revolution in Paris which resulted in the end of the country's monarchy and created the French Second Republic.
Another revolution broke out in Vienna, Austria. As a result, the emperor announced freedom of the press and work began on the country's constitution.
When they found out about what had happened in Vienna, a group of young people gathered at Café Pilvax in Pest and decided it was time to act.
They visited the city's universities to recruit more activists and soon they formed a crowd.
They proceeded to Landerer's printing house and occupied a printing press to be able to print Petőfi's "National Song" and the famous 12 Points of the Revolutionaries.
The giant crowd marched to the National Museum where they announced their points and Petőfi gave a fiery performance of his brand new poem.
The next location was the Pest Town Hall where they had the 12 points accepted, then they went all the way to Buda where they freed political prisoners.
In the evening the National Theater put on Bánk Bán, which received standing ovation.
The first democratic government was formed and Lajos Batthyány was nominated as the country's first prime minister.
