  • French Revolution: Intro
  • Let me tell you about the French Revolution.
  • Factors That Lead to the Revolution
  • Mom im hungry
  • Im sorry buddy but we can't afford food anymore because the king spends all of our money
  • Meeting of the Estates General
  • The French Revolution started in France. It was all started by the third estate because they had to pay more on taxes then the richer estates. They had less rights then the other estates as well.
  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • There were certain problems that lead to this great revolution. Economic troubles from the king and queens frequent spending was the major problem. They also had a very weak leader that went by the name of King Louis.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • The first and second estate could just overthrow the third estate on any decision. Even though the both of them combined didn't have nearly as many people in that social class. They still had an equal number of votes as the third estate which isn't fair for the third estate at all.
  • The Great fear 
  • A group of the people were locked out of the courtroom. So they called the meeting inside of the Bastilles indoor tennis court. They vowed not to leave until they had a set plan or they got to use the courtroom.
  • Foreign troops had already started on their way to France to slay French citizens. People of the third estates had started gathering weapons to defend it. The mob eventually did get in and steal gunpowder.
  • During this time basically everyone was afraid of everyone. You could be turned in and executed on the spot for minor and unfair things such as not calling someone citizen. It was unfair and dumb because most of the people killed were from the third estate and this law was set to help them.
  • All I did was call the kind lady madam!!!
