answered-by-expert Expert Answer
  • Slavery in France
  •  The slave trade began in the seventeenth century. French merchants sailed from the ports of Bordeaux or Nantes to the African coast, where they bought slaves from local chieftains 
  • Slaves were then sold to plantation owners. Because of the employment of slaves in the colonies, the growing demands for sugar, coffee and indigo by the European markets were met.
  • Port cities like Bordeaux and Nantes owed their economic prosperity to the flourishing slave trade.
  • One of the important reforms of the Jacobin Club was the abolition of slavery in French colonies. The Convention passed in 1794  freed all slaves in the French overseas possessions. 
  • However, after being banned by the Jacobins, slavery was again reintroduced by Napoleon Bonaparte. 
  • Plantation owners considered as their right to enslave African Negroes in pursuit of their economic interests. Slavery was finally abolished in French colonies in 1848.
