Louis the XV leaves France in debt due to lavish spending and poor harvest.
I want More Gucci!!!!
Louis XVI is now the king but is very indecisive and does not take the advice of J. Necker...
...but your Highness taxing the first two estates is the only..
... and it didn't help that the social classes were not equal. The first estate (Clergy) and the second estate (Nobility) had all the money but didn't pay taxes unlike the third estate.
The debt got so bad that the king had to call the estates-general but the three estates couldn't agree so the third estate made their won government, the national assembly, but The King closed their place so the went to an in door tennis court and pledged to make a constitution.
The Third estate's anger increased so the stormed Bastille to free prisoners (but really to get weapons) and now this day is celebrated through out France
Third estate smash!!
As violence increased the First and Second estate started leaving the country and with them was the king and queen this made the third estate suspicious and viewed them as traitors.
