The results of the votes are in.....The third estate will still pay tax!!
Maybe you should tax the first two estates
NO YOU ARE FIRED!
Once upon a time there was a country called France. They had a king named Louis, and his country was quite uneven. There were three populations. The first two were the clergy and nobility. They were rich. The third estate were starving peasants that had to pay taxes. Soon they had enough, so they overthrew the government. Page 1
Members of the revolution must stay loyal and remain together until we get a new constitution
The meeting of the estates general was a meeting held to "discuss taxes"....AKA a complete unfair meeting because the first two estates had 2 votes while the third had 1. The third would always lose because the first two don't want to pay tax. This time they had had enough. When Louis announced the results, a peasant stood up and said "make me". This was the peak of tension before the starved peasants rioted. Page 2
LETS GET THIS BREAD BOIS!!
MURDER THE TRAITORS!!!!!!
The king had hired 3 people. He fired each one of them when they told him to tax the first estates, which was very stupid in the long run. Page 3
Vive la Revolution!
The marvel in logic known as king Louis used his extreme smarts to stop the national assembly(a revolution group) by ..... locking them out of a meeting room? As you can see, King Louis isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. The Na held a meeting at a tennis court. They then made an oath that stated that they wouldn't stop until they had a new constitution.

The starving peasants had had enough. They were so angry that they marched to the Bastille prison and tore it with their bare hands. They then took a ton of political prisoners and murdered them. They stormed the building and stole weapons to form an army. This would lead to the reign of terror.... Page 6
The most iconic part of the revolution is under way. Welcome to TROT! Lawyer Maximilien Robespierre took power as France went to war with Austria and was in a state of disaster. Robespierre started TROT when he Guillotined King Louis. Daily he would execute a list of people deemed as traitors. Soon the people were angry with the blood and chaos so they gave Robespierre a taste of his own medicine and guillotined him, ending TROT. Page 7
