Storyboard Text

  • We need money!  Let's tax the third estate and raise the price of food.
  • Great..... now we have to pay more for food AND pay all the taxes.
  • GET OUT OF THE CASTLE AND LET US TAKE THE GRAIN!!!!
  • After the American Revolution, the nation of France was bankrupt.  They also had a bad harvest, so the King raised the price of food.
  • The third estate was mad about this because they were broke, heavily taxed, and now the food price went up.
  • Prison!
  • Death!
  • Death!
  • People saw this as a way to make Marie Antoinette as more of a bad guy by spreading rumors that she was hoarding grain in the castle.  That began the women's march.
  • The King and his wife left the castle and followed the Estate's directions to avoid death.
  • Later on, the Estate accused him of many crimes.  The majority sentenced him to die by the guillotine while the others sentenced him to prison.
  • They killed the King and with that the Reign of Terror began.
