The castle is nice and all, but we have no more money!
order in the court
Us men have to decide how we are going to vote these days.
We hereby declare the third estate to break off.
We are independent men.
The year is 1789 France is broke because the king spent all of their earning on a beautiful castle. In France food is expensive and they have taxes but taxes aren´t high enough and no one buys food because of the high prices.
July 14, 1789
Because of this problem a meeting was held called the meeting of estates. the government called all three parts to decide how they would vote. they also talked about the kings finacial problems an how they could solve them.
Hmm how about, " men are born free and equal in rights?"
Later that year the Third estate formed a national assembly. They were the strongest out of the three because they had the most representatives they then declared itself the national assembly and took and oath to force a new constitution on the king.
I am your ruler.
By the summer of 1789 the national assemlby was controlling the government of France. On July 14 a angry mob attacked a prison. They demanded for weapons and set all of the prisoners free. They then chopped of the heads of the organizers living in bastille.
In 1789 the French National Assembly wrote the declaration of the rights of man and citizens. It defined individual and collective rights at the time of french revolution.
Now that the king is killed the National Assembly takes over and now controls france. People are not used to this because they only had one ruller and now they have multiple.
