  • Long term causes of the French Revolution!
  • Here is your part, sir.
  • I expected more out of you peasant!
  • Estates General
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • We are no longer going to take his from them!
  • Some of the main two reason this was pushed  was mainly due to unfair working and social rules. Peasants would do all the work only for their noble to take all of it as rent, give the clergy 10% in tithes, and the King and Queen get about 60%. After all. of this is said and done, the noble halves what is left and takes that, only to leave the peasants what is left.
  • Storming the Bastille 
  • These were the people who represented each individual social class.
  • Revolution begins
  • After being locked out of the national assembly as it was called for what would of been the very first meeting, these peasants and all around lower class citizens who were to attend this then decided to have their own meeting in a tennis court nearby.
  • Vocab
  • Estate General - The people who represented the three social classes Cahiers - an exercise book or note book 1st, 2nd, 3rd estates - The 3 different social classes (Clergy, Nobles, Peasants) National Assembly - An assembly between the three classes  Tennis Court Oath = An oath taken by the people of the lowest class after being locked out of the last national assembly stating they wouldn't stand for the things exactly like this, taken on a tennis court Bastille - med-evil dungeon/prison in the middle of France King Louis XVI - King of France  at the time Jacques Necker -  Economic wiz, hired by the King of Britain to help with financial problems. Fired due to other estates opinion  July 14, 1789 - The day the Bastille was stormed, leading to Revolution
  • The Bastille was stormed for 2 reasons. To begin with the Tennis Court Oath got people up for a nice revolution, how ever they lacked the gun powder. They believed that there was just that in this fortress of demise. The second reason has to due with the fact that is just so happens  that this entire place signified monarchy and cruel punishhment
  • All of this led up to this. The inevitable, revolution. What else?
  • Since there was an extra slide I just thought why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
