  • There were financial crisis happening so the king called a meeting and put each of the three estates in different rooms so they could discus in privet. The old third estate didn't want to be called that anymore, so they had a meeting and made a Constitution. The King was wanting the vote on the financial crisis, to be a vote by order to try to fix it. This is a step away from democracy because the king is not letting everyone be equal.

  • The old third estate group of people didn't want to be called "third estate" so they came up with a new and better name. They deiced on being called The National Assembly. They took a pledge and made the constitution of 1791 which was the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen. This is a step towards democracy because the lower class people are protesting so everyone can be treated equal.

  • we wont leave until we get our way
  • Robespierre thought he had all the power. So if anyone talked about the king or queen then he killed them using a guillotine. Robespierre thought everyone needed to be republic. This was a step towards democracy because nobody could talk about kings or queens, so it is going to switch to a democracy.
  • Napoleon wanted to be emperor so he called the pope over and he crowed himself to show he loves power. He wanted a reformation and he thought he had the best military success. Even though he lost a lot of wars. This was a towards democracy because there was no monarch, just an emperor.
