  • Motive: Before the revolution France was falling apart. They were in deep debt because of the lavish life styles of the king and queen and because they had lots of military debt. The leaders were very weak and didn't seem to care to much about politics. This made the people of France very angry and push for more equality and a better system of government.
  • Method: To try and save the country of France its people took a stand. They protested all over the country and even rioted the Bastille. The Third estate took the Tennis Court Oath and tried to convince others that their estate deserves more power and that the first and second estate should give them more of a say in the government.
  • Change: In the end The French monarchy was abolished and France was turned into a republic to give more power to the majority of the people living there. IN addition to the King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed this solidified a victory for the third estate and a successful revolution.

THey had terrible living conditions and were physically abused by there owners or sometimes even shot. They had to work long hours under the blazing sun and were not allowed very many breaks. Peolple wanted this to stop, so they decided to start a Revolution to help gain more equality among people.
