  2. The Swiss Confederation

  4. Napoleon III’s reign
Answer - C - The Boulanger Affair nearly destroyed the French Third Republic.

Key Takeaway: The Boulanger Affair was named after Georges Ernest Boulanger, a French general and politician. At the peak of Boulanger’s power, in 1889, it seemed as though he was going to attempt a coup d’état, trading the regime for a military dictatorship. This near-coup almost destroyed the French Third Republic. Boulanger died two years later.
