Storyboard Text

  • I am First Estate
  • The Three Estates
  • I am Second Estate.
  • I am Third Estate.
  • Long Term Causes For the French Revolution
  • We won't stand for this. We want change!
  • Estates General 
  • Yes! We also want you to call the Estates General!
  • All right then. 
  • We want you to fire Mr. Necker! 
  • France was divided into three estates (social classes). The first estate consisted of the people of the church. The second estate were the noble lords (the landowners). The third estate was everyone else (mostly was servants). 
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • We take this oath to hopefully have a better future for France and our givernmnet.
  • While the first and second estate were happy, the third estate was angry. While the first and second estates didn't have to pay taxes, everyone else did. The government had slowly taken their money and rights away from them. 
  • Storming of The Bastille
  • For our freedom! For our rights!
  • France had started to take more and more money out and soon the country was in debt. Louis XVI decided to call upon Jaques Necker, a financial advisor. The first and second estates felt threatened by his ideas and made Louis fire Necker. So the king instead had the Estates-General come and help.
  • Revolution Begins
  • Charge!!!
  • The Third Estate continued to be unfairly treated. The first and second estates would always outvote the third. The Third Estate had had enough. Representatives went to their meeting hall, that ended up being locked. Instead, they decided to go to a nearby tennis court to make their pledge to never separate until France had a better government. 
  • On July 14, 1789, the city of Paris took the first step into the revolution. Rumors had been going around that King Louis XVI would take down the National Assembly (people in Tennis Court Oath) so the citizens of Paris decided to take their weapons and look for gunpowder.
  • The storming of the Bastille deeply scared the first and second estates, worrying them about the furture for the country. The third estate, however, finally gathered the courage to stand for their rights and fight.
