Storyboard Text

  • The French Revolution Begins, Storyboard 
  • Long term causes of the french revolution 
  • Estates General 
  • BY Miranda McCallum. Period 5 Honors World History. Mrs. Tedrow 
  • Tennis Court Oath 
  • During this time the king was over taxing, drowning the country  in debt, and using the money for himself. The king threw lavish parties for the 1st and 2nd estates and wouldn't do anything to help France. 
  • Storming of the Bastille 
  • Louis XVI calls the estates general, which was a legislative where each state gets one vote.  All 3 estates prepared cahiers. Clergy and nobles would always gang up against the 3rd estate.
  • Revolution begins 
  • Representative of the 3rd estate formed National Assembly, locked out the clergy and nobles so they had to meet at a nearby tennis court. Tennis court oath was a pledge to never separate till France had a just constitution which was accepted by King Louis XVI. 
  • The bastille was an old medieval prison, a symbol of horror. An enraged mob stormed the bastille to prove they were willing to fight for equal rights and power in France. Prisoners were released and guards were killed. The event has been celebrated in France as their independance day since 1880. 
  • The people were sick and tired of the way they were treated and the King was too hesitant to give them what they want. The events that led up to the French Revolution were the estates general, the tennis court oath, and most importantly the storming of the bastille.
