  • A reason that the people were unhappy was that they had to pay too many taxes. They would pay more than half of their earnings to the king and the clergy. Another reason is that they did all of the work and were the poorest. They would live their lives working everyday to be the poorest in society.
  • Storming of the Bastille
  • The purpose of having the estates was to calm the masses and create solutions to problems.
  • Revolution Begins
  • The Tennis Court Oath is the vow to meet over and over until problems are solved. It is called the tennis court oath because the peasants were locked out of the meeting hall and they held the meeting at a local tennis court instead.
  • The people were looking to overthrow the government and they needed weapons. They immediately went to the Bastille, a prison, for gunpowder. The people broke in and took all the weaponry they could.
