In 1789, bread crisis started. The peasants were the most affected because bread was the food that they ate the most.
WE ARE HUNGRY!
The crown had a lot of debts due to their very extravagant and high expenses, their contributions for the war against great Britain and the considerable debt inherited from Louis´s father.This brought a lot of economic trouble and decline
Should we do something.
No, we need the money for our debts and expenses, and by the way who cares?!
Marie Antoinette was best known as Madame deficit due to government money was spent on jewelry, gambling and on her whims.
These are beautiful! Im going to buy all of them.
They also spent money in other wars against their enemies.
Another cause of the bread crisis was that in that time the climate was really bad and it caused a bad harvest, so there was not enough wheat to make bread.
It was all we could collect thanks to the weather.
This is not enough!
Thanks to that, the price of the bread got higher and less accessible for the people in the third state making them angry.
