  • The Third Estate Retaliates
  • Louis is Conflicted
  • We really CANNOT lower these taxes, we have to pay off all of out debt! I think I will actually RAISE them!
  • Alright representatives, who thinks we should raise taxes?
  • Louis Proposes a Vote
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • NO WAY!
  • I Put the 3rd Estate complaining to King Louis XVI about the taxes because they are not as wealthy as the second and third estate, who do not even have to pay taxes
  • Third Estate Assemble
  • Lets do something about our situation! We are now known as The Nation Assembly!
  • YEAH!!
  • Louis said that because he knows that if he can't pay off the debt (that his wife contributed to), the country will go bankrupt
  • The National Assembly is Successful
  • King Louis asks representatives of each Estate if the taxes should be raised. The first and second Estate said yes because they don't have to pay taxes. The third Estate said no because they are the ones that have to pay taxes. King Louis dismisses his vote because two thirds said yes.
  • A New Start
  • The peasant starts this uprising because they are not being represented in their government. They have weapons because they stole them from the Bastille prison.
  • The National Assembly finally drives out the king and queen out of power. They now can make a more representative government
  • This scene is depicting the presentation of the Declaration of the Rights of Man because the Third estate finally have control and they wanted to make new rules. The peasant thanks Ben Franklin because he was an inspiration when the Declaration was written.
  • Before I discuss this document, I would like to thank Ben Franklin...
