See what taxation was like in pre-revolutionary France!

Storyboard Text

  • 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!
