We want to outvote the Third Estate!
Before the Estates General met at Versailles, there was many public debating on how the votes should be decided.
We want our members to vote individually so we would dominate!
Since the National Assembly found themselves locked out of their meeting area, they moved to a tennis court nearby. The members took the Tennis Court Oath, pledging to continue to sit until they have given France a constitution.
Establish a new constitution for France!
A crowd marched to Bastille, a fortress that held political prisoners. The crowed was looking for weapons of the militia. 98 people were killed because troops fired into the crowd. The crowed invaded the fortress and released 7 prisoners, killed several soldiers, and the governor. At the end, they did not end up finding any weapons. The storming of Bastille indicated that the political future of the nation would not be decided by the National Constituent Assembly.
The assembly issued the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizens on August 27, 1789. It proclaimed that all men were born free and equal with natural rights to liberty, property, and personal safety.
Bread shortages continued and prices shot up. On October 5th, several thousands of angry Parisian women marched to Versailles, demanding more bread. The women forced the King and Queen to return to Paris, which they did and settled in the Palace of Tuileries. The assembly joined the King and his family.
We want our bread!
In July 1790, the Assembly issued the Civil Constitution of the clergy. This transformed the Roman Catholic church in France into a branch of the state.
The Roman Catholic Church will now be a part of our branches of state!
