The Meeting of the Estates General
The Tennis Court Oath
The Storming of Bastille
The three estates were to meet, however the clergy nobles and king were the only ones to show up, the third estate believing there to be a plot against them.
The March on Versailles
The third estate declared itself the National Assembly, the first estate joining them. They took an oath in a Tennis Court, becoming the Tennis Court Oath, to not disband until they achieved their goal of a new constitution.
The peasants of Paris stormed Bastille, a prison. Their goal was to free political prisoners and to acquire gunpowder for the weapons that they had already possessed. Even after surrender, the peasants tore the prison's men apart, inspiring other peasants.
Seven thousand women marched from Paris to Versailles to demand bread, and later that night sought to find and kill Marie Antoinette. The March resulted in the capture of the King.
