We work for the lords and we must pay rent for the land we work on... we must pay heavy taxes and to the church... we have no voice.
Many of us endured terrible weather, heavy rain, hard winters and too hot summers... we received less profits from the bad harvests... food prices are rising.... and we are starving.
The Third Estate
We are all living lavishly in our palaces, we have complete authority over peasants, no taxes to pay, but we crave for more power.
The Second Estate: The Nobility
We are the body of the Catholic Religion in French. Peasants must pay taxes to initiate a relationship with our Father. We are indeed privilege and we thank god for that.
The First Estate: The Clergy
Our Government went bankrupt from all the wars we've fought, and our royal kingdom became reckless with their fortune.
Our King asked the nobility to help him reform the tax system, but obviously they refused.
Our King called us at the palace of Versailles, us representatives of the nobles, the clergy, and the third estate. Our king did not have control of the people.
We tried to draw up a constitution showing France, our nation, how to be governed. This was the National Assembly where we all united to make our country the beauty it was once again.
