Storyboard Text

  • The citizens of the third estate were upset as they were paying all of the taxes while the rest of the old regime lived in luxury.
  • These taxes are outrageous, and there not even enough food to feed my kids.
  • Louis XVI and Anne Boleyn were made aware of the situation with the third estate, and decided to call a meeting of the old regime at the Versaille palace.
  • Perhaps we should address this situation in the third estate.
  • When the reps of the three estates met at Versailles, they were told that they were going to have to vote on if the the other two estates should pay taxes.
  • When the third estate arrived to share their vote, they realized that they had been locked out of the palace. So they met on a tennis court, renamed themselves to "National Assembly", and throughouts efforts of Louis XVI, wrote a constitution for france called the "Declaration of the Rights of Man". Even though the third estate had written this constitution, it meant nothing as the king refused to sign it.
  • Through acts of some particularly violent women with large knives, King Louis XVI was forced to sign "The Declaration of the RIghts of Men" and change the government to a constitutional monarchy. All was good in France RIght? 
  • After Louis XVI had changed France to a constitutional monarchy, he refused to actually listen to the constitution. Also he was found guilty of treason after attempting to leave france to go to his wife's family in austria and raise an army to defeat his own people in france. However, he was caught ten miles to the border of france and sent back and put on trial. He was then sentenced to death and sent to the guillotine. The french people were overjoyed! But they were not prepared for the reign of their new leader Robespierre and the v violence that was going to ensue.
