The top 2 estates didn't have to be taxed and were happy with this arrangement. The rule was to the estates could send a group of representers. They would then vote by the group. The top 2 estates the nobility and the clergy thought they would win 2-1. But the third estate wanted to talk about not only taxes, but all the wrongs of the king. The king himself arrived in hopes to awe everyone into obidience. Unfprtanaly he was a idot.
