  • Long Term Causes of the French Revolution
  • The Third Estate Starves
  • Delegates take Tennis Court Oath
  • The French Revolution had caused people to be divided into estates. 1st estate,2nd estate, and 3rd estate. The first and second estate barely had to pay taxes, while the third estate had to pay taxes and work hard and they thought it was unfair.
  • Bringing in the Estates-General
  • Time to bring in the Estates-General!
  • The third estate had to pay more taxes than the first and second estate. The third estate had to do harder jobs, pay taxes that they thought were unfair and they barely had enough money for food. They suffered.
  • Bastille Believed To Hold Weapons 
  • Delegates of the 3rd estate wish to be the National Assembly. They take the Tennis Court Oath vowing to create a constitution, declaring themselves National Assembly. They swore "never to separate and to meet wherever the circumstances might require until we have established a sound and just constitution."
  • The french Revolution Begins
  • Here comes the French Revolution!
  •  King Louis XVI left France deeply in debt. He ruled from 1715 to 1774. The debt and borrowing money, all the money problems had become a serious problem around the 1700's. Louis XVI called in a financial expert named Jaques Necker. He coached the king on what to do to reduce money issues, but the crisis only deepened. They had no choice but to bring in the Estates-General. In preparation the king had the 1st estate,2nd estate, and 3rd estate prepare cahiers for the decisions and votes.
  • On July 14,1789, more than 800 Persians assembled outside the Bastille. Which was a medical fortress used as a prison for political and prisoners. The crowd of Persians demanded the weapons and gunpowder they thought was stored there. A handful of people were killed but no weapons were found. French to this day celebrate Bastille Day on July 14 as their national independance day.
  • The storming of the Bastille was the last event until the start of the French Revolution.
