The 1780s was a decade of the 18th century.

The decade saw the American Revolution come to a close and the first months of the new Republic. In Europe, the French Revolution continued, culminating in the execution of King Louis XVI in 1793. Other important events during the decade included the American invasion of Canada during the Revolution, the beginning of the Dutch War of Independence, and the sinking of the HMS Bounty.
