For what reason did revolutionaries create a new calendar, rename roads, renamed the days of the week, and developed a new metric system

    They did it because the current calendar and the system was related to religious motives and the monarch's rule. They removed all religious allusions and names as well as the names of kings from France's history and made it a secular calendar, while implementing the metric system and decimalising everything.
