It is hard to imagine that Paris, one of the most gorgeous and visualizing parts in the world, was once a trashy, filthy, putrid, dysfunctional, disgraceful, perverted, corrupted, chaotic, vile, bloody disgusting place. Hadn't not been for the people's courage to stand up to the unfairness of the laws, Paris would not be the beautiful place it's know as. Ladies and Gentleman! Boys and girls! Hear the tale of injustice and betrayal! Bloody gore and corruption! A story that would impact generations for many years to come.
The Meeting with of the Estates-General
This is unfair!
If you agree that only the third estate should pay their proprieties, say 'aye.'
Yes! From now on we are no longer the third estate, but the national assembly!

The Tennis Court Oath
Hey! They locked us out!

March of Bastille
I'll gash out his eyes!
Okay you simpleton, off with your head!
Quivering: Please, please have mercy on me...
Curse you Queen Antonitte!
King Louis XVl decided to hold a meeting with all three estates to help settle the peace with the taxes. The third estate, which was made up of the poor, wanted the first and second estate, made up of the wealthy and religious, to help out. But they had other plans.
The March of Versailles
Come down, you cowardly wench!
Did you ever think about giving away your dimes for once, you greedy saints!
They've surrounded the entire castle! We are damned!
When the third estate attempted to go back to the meeting, they were locked out! Having had enough of their games, the third estate decided to form their own group against the other estates.
Ah, let it be. We don't need them anyway. We'll just stick together.
Once they formed their new organization, the people decided to get some sweet revenge. They marched on to Bastille's notorious prison, killed all the guards, and tore down the walls.
I'll blow out his evil heart!
C'mon up everybody! Let's tear down this goon!
You have damned us all, Queen Antoinette!
The women themselves have proven to be quite savage. They believed that Queen Antoinette, the king's wife, was to blame for the hunger their poor children were enduring and that she had been hogging all the food for herself. So, they decided to take action and tear down Versailles until they had their hands on the queen.
Burn in hell, you witch!
Now we will make you suffer the way our children suffered!
