  • The French Revolution Begins
  • Financial troubles
  • Estates General
  • Since our King gives us unfair taxes  and has failed to support our government we went a different fair rules.  The estates are not fair at all and us farmers have to pay taxes.  We will fight until it is fair. 
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • Because I King Louis XVI spent so much money on battles and borrowed money we are in dept now. I shall raise taxes to the poor because I spend too much money on my fancy foods. Jacques Necker was my financial advisor but  I choose not to listen to him.
  • Storming of the Bastille
  • These  are my three estates. I do not pay taxes and neither do my clergy. The ones who do pay taxes are the peasants and everyone  else which is why  they are so upset and mad. What very little money they make, most go to me.  The estates general collects the money and passes it on. First estate is celergy, second nobletiy, third  everyone else.
  • Long term causes of french revolution 
  • We the national assembly have made an oath to stand by each other and meet no matter what.  Before this happened  Louis  XVI had the estates write cahiers. He locked us out of our meeting room so we moved to the tennis court. Therefore this is the Tennis Court Oath. 
  • Parisians heard that royal troops were going to take over the capitial  in the city of paris. Therefore  we stormed to the Bastille to were the weapons and gun powder was. This was then called the Storm of the Bastille 
  • The long term effects of the french revolution  was that many people who got treated unfairly like by playing taxes just like me finally took control of out government. Now we finally have what we want. But as you see it wasn't always this way.
