  • 3rd Estate felt since they comprised of 98% of population they should start their own voting group: "The National Assembly"
  • This eliminated power of the crown.
  • "Reign of Terror" - several people beheaded including the Queen: over 30,000 people
  • Everything must go! No one will take my power away from me!
  • Robespierre sought to eliminate all traces of Monarchy.
  • He grew a huge ego.
