Q- what was marseillaise? What led to formation of marseillaise?

Answer- Marseillaise was a patriotic song composed by the poet Roget De L’isle. Although Louis 16 signed the constitution he entered into secret negotiations with the king of Prussia. 

Rulers of the other neighbouring countries too were worried by the development in france and made plans to send troops to put down the events that had been taking place there since 

summer of 1789. Before this could happen, the national assembly voted in April 1792, and declared war against Prussia and Austria. Thousands of volunteers from Marseilles as they marched into Paris and so got its name. The Marseilles is now the national anthem of france.
