  • Inequality between the 3 Estates was occurring. The first Estate was made up of the Clergy who bathed in wealth and owned 10% of the land.  The second Estate was made up of nobles who where like the middle class. The 3rd  made up of the rest of the population. They had to pay taxes and many were poor while the other estates didn't have to pay a dime. The wars too left France without money & in debt.
  • Storming of the Bastille
  • The Estates would have a Estate General who would represent that certain estate. When needed to vote the estates would vote and than have 1 person from each each estate vote. It was unfair however because the 1st and 2nd estate favored to vote the same thing they where against the 3rd estate.

  • People & the group of the 3rd Estate heard rumors that the king was going to occupy the city of Paris with his soldiers. Scared this was true the people didn't want to get shut off o so they stormed the Bastille looking for more weapons and gunpowder only to kill a commander, 5 guards, free prisoners , and find no weapons to use. The people didn't like the Bastille so in return they started breaking it down and selling the bricks or giving them away.
  • With the storming of the Bastille That was the ticking time bomb which went off and started the revolution. The people took it to the streets the marching and someone had the head of the commander on a stick. King Louis XVI received word of what was going on that it wasn't a riot, but a revolution which had just started.
