This storyboard does not have a description.
On July 14, 1789, people of the third class stormed the Bastille. It was a symbol of absolute despotism, and it was a prison that stored gun powder. People storming the Bastille was really the thing that kicked off the French Revolution.
After the revolution had started, people of the third estate were still unsatisfied with the ruling, so they turned to violence to get their way. They were unhappy with the feudal dues, so they stormed in to noble's mansions and tore up legal documents.
People were angry about the rising price of bread, so the women decided to take matters into their own hands. The women of the third estate marched 12 miles to get to Versailles. Once there, they stormed into the palace and demanded that King Louis and Marie Antoinette come to France and fix the problem.
