The Sacred Heart and The Revolution

Today I read somewhere an unsourced claim that blame for the French Revolution lies in the failure of the kings of France to fulfill a request of the Lord to consecrate France to His Sacred Heart. Does anybody know anything about this, and whether or not it derives from some approved source or apparition?

This is not the sort of thing we were taught in 'Church History III.'

Apparently the king made a promise to consecrate France to the Sacred Heart.

That is very helpful, DS. Thanks!
