Problems that led to the French Revolution
By msegalla, Updated
See what taxation was like in pre-revolutionary France!
I'm King Louis XVI of France. I continue to raise taxes for the citizens of this country. I might make poor decisions, but it's because I'm just too young to rule...
I'm Marie Antoinette. But you can call me "Madame Deficit" because I am spending all your tax money! Haha!
We Clergy of the First Estate don't pay taxes! But the citizens pay taxes to the Church!
We Nobles of the Second Estate ALSO do not pay taxes! Yay!
Life is becoming unbearable for us in the Third Estate!
We Peasants pay almost ALL of the taxes in this country! We cannot even afford bread to live now!
