did you know the king is throwing a party in versaillies?
he is not fit to be king if he cannot care for his people but instead only cares about himself
How can the king be throwing a party when his people are dying of hunger!
The people of France were in anger when word got out that the king had thrown a party in Versailles. This is because the king had ignored the fact that his citizens were starving from the lack of food. They were not happy with the fact that the cost of a single loaf of bread was equivalent to their one month savings.
So, the women decided to march to the castle to confront the king. They walked with guns and pikes in hands. They wanted the king to fix everything he did wrong to his kingdom.
The women made the king sign the Declaration of The Rights of Men and made him move to paris. With the king gone there was no more monarchy to rule. Therefor the power belonged to the people.
