If they are looking for a fight, we shall defend ourselves.
Nobles and royals of the upper class were satisfied because they had to pay less taxes and had more rights than the lower classes. However, they were part of the second class, and tension grew between the social classes.
Farmers and others of the third social class didn't like how they were being treated. Some started to rise up and speak against the king. Some even took more action.
When King Louis XVI heard of the Third Estate wanting to rise, he prepares for a fight. This actually made the problem worse, causing the third estate to become defensive and want to fight back.
The people, now angered, rebelled and a mob stormed the Bastille (a Paris prison), looking for gunpowder and weapons.
King Louis fled the Palace of Versailles, but was caught and brought back under guard.
Louis had a trial, but he was sentenced to death and executed by a guillotine in public. The people of France were mainly pleased with this, and everyone sensed change coming. The National Assembly was established.
