A revolution is a successful attempt by a large group of people to change the political system of an independent country by force.
In a country that practises democracy, a person can change the system of a country only by following the due process.

Frequently, revolution is an illegal act in every country that champions the rule of law, and any attempt made by any person with the intention to change the system of a country by force then it may be considered a criminal offence.

The Soviet Union came into being by a revolution that killed millions and later fell apart in a counterrevolution without much fighting, but in the French revolution (1789) there was so much bloodshed, the years right after the revolution in France are often called the ”reign of terror”.
