The kings constant want for something new and more expensive brought more taxes on the third estate in result. which would lead to something bigger than the king and queen thought.
i dont think we have a solid gold room...
we should get one, just make another tax
With the already large debt France had because of the Palace of Versailles, the peasants were starting to get angry with all of the taxes put against them.
we barely have money for our families!...
As the 3rd estate was the biggest group in France they saw that it had unequal taxing systems under the Old Regime is biased and incorrect.
This is unequal, the Old Regime is flawed!
When the 3rd estate were ignored and locked out of their meeting room they went to an outdoor Tennis court and drew up they're new Constitution (Tennis Court Oath).
We will get our Justice! We will not be ignored!
On July 14, 1789, The Bastille (Symbol of Frances ruling over the people) was stormed by mobs that were freeing the prisoners, finding weaponry while burning and breaking it down. Which made them politically standout.
FREE THE PRISONERS AND FIND THE WEAPONRY!!
This soon brought the National Assembly to Officialize The Declaration of the rights of man and citizen.
...And with this Declaration we now have the right to strip power from the king.
