France's Bad Economy
Meeting of the Estates General
The Tennis Courts Oath
There were three different classes, the First Estate, Second Estate, and the third Estate. Prices for food were raised and following were taxes. This was due to bad harvest. The first and second estate still lived a comfortable life however this hit the third estate, the peasants quite hard.
The meeting of the General Estates consisted of three groups, The First Estate, Second Estate, and the Third Estate. The meeting of the General Estate was to make major decisions and take a vote, in this situation it would be on who to tax in order to pay for the King and Queens extravagant spendings, however the Third Estate never got a say and were out voted due to the General Estates unfair system
The Third Estate took the Tennis Court Oath that they will keep going against the king until the French constitution is established
