  • That
  • 1789-1799 Peasants were starving with no money. They abolished the feudal system, and killed the monarchs.
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • Bread prices rose, people had new ideas about government, leadership was weak, there were economic troubles, and there was growing resentment in lower classes.
  • Storming of the Bastille
  • Delegates from each estate voted for major decisions. Each estate always had one vote, so the nobles and clergy could always outvote the commoners. This time, the commoners wanted change and created the the National Assembly.
  • The Great Fear
  • The National Assembly was locked out of their meeting room. They broke down the door to a tennis court, and they made a new constitution there instead.
  • People from the third estate raided this prison in search of gunpowder. This event is considered the start of the French Revolution. 
  • Peasants had an irrational fear that nobles sent outlaws to terrorize them. In the panic, many peasants became outlaws themselves. They burnt government buildings to get rid of the papers claiming their debts.
