  • Many educated member of the third estate started to think like the Enlightenment thinks did. Government started get deeper into debt and the leadership weaken.
  • The third Estate thought that the medieval ways were unfair and asked the king for a change. The king sided with the nobles and said that they would follow the medieval ways. The third estate went to a tennis court and said that they would not leave in till a new Constitution was written. ( Tennis Court Oath)
