  • The members of the third estate knew their rights were being abused by the monarchy. They agreed it was time to change that. They formed the National Assembly, a group dedicated to fighting the king for power.
  • The Rights of Man
  • Since the peasants had no money to pay taxes, they were usually in debt and wanted the king to lower taxes. However, the king ignored the pleas of the peasants and instead spent all the money trying to fun the American Revolution. Since the king was no longer receiving money from taxes, he realized he was running out of money, and started the nobles and the clergy. This made the clergy and the nobles unhappy. This also caused France's economy, causing France to become bankrupt.
  • The Reign of Terror was a period of violence during the French Revolution emanating from conflicts between the Girondins and the Jacobins. During this period, people perceived to be against the Revolution were publicly executed by guillotine. Both the Jacobins and the Girondins supported the end of the monarchy.
  • The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, passed by France's National Constituent Assembly in August 1789, is an important document of theFrench Revolution and in the history of human and civil rights.
