So I'm reading through Schama's Citizens and am thoroughly confused. I've gathered that at the beginning there were Feuillants and Jacobins, of whom the majority were followers of Brissot, the Girondins.

Then at some point the Jacobins center around Robespierre and the Girondins are separate?

I know this isn't right. What's the chronology here and what am I not understanding?
