Storyboard Text

  • Long term causes of French Revolution
  • Sire, we are completely broke from the revolution.
  • We are not paying any larger taxes 
  • We will have to bring Jaques Necker in to help us solve this.
  • Estates General
  • Yay! He is here! He will help solve our problems and we don't have to pay and higher taxes!
  • Ladies and Gentleman! I present the estates general.
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • The French revolution had left King Louis XVI, and France bankrupt with financial troubles and the king's attempts at trying to reform government, Jacques Necker, had failed due to the 1st and second estate not wanting to pay more taxes and persuaded the king to dismiss Necker.
  • Storming the Bastille
  •     The Estates General was brought in to help settle and solve France's bankruptcy.  And the nobles and the people prepared their grievance note books for him to review. Each cahier within the notebooks contained complaints and called for specific reforms.
  • Revolution Begins
  • The third estate met privately and declared themselves to be the national assembly. Their meeting hall was locked and guarded so they moved their meetings to a tennis court. And on that tennis court, they vowed, "never to separate and to meet wherever the circumstances might require until we have established a sound and just constitution.
  • On July 14th, 1789, more than 800 Parisians stood before the Bastille and the crowd demanded weapons and powder. When they were dismissed and fired at, the enraged mob broke through defenses and killed the commander although they did not find any weapons, they decided to dismantle the Bastille taking it down brick by brick.
  • He killed Frank! Attack!! Hurry before they harms anyone else! Cover!
  • The Revolution had begun due to the third estate being overtaxed more than they could pay and the people were not happy. They marched to the castle to remove nobles and punish them for their misdeeds and unfair and unequal treatment towards the Third estate.
