  • Let us call this the Oath of The Tennis Court
  • We we write France A declaration!
  • The king called all 3 estates to take a vote on if the King should continue to raise taxes. Both the 1st and 2nd class voted to raise them, while the representatives of 98% of the population thought this was unfair and didn't vote. They then broke off and no longer took orders from the king.

  • The third estate broke off, and they all met at an old fashioned tennis court. They then named themselves the National Assembly, which was made up of the 3rd class.
  • National Assembly Controls Government
  • The national assembly met on an old fashioned tennis court, and they swore to each other that they would write France a declaration. This was called the Oath Of The Tennis Court.
  • After that, on July 4th, 1789, the National Assembly went to Bastille and demanded the governor for their guns and cannons. A battle then broke out and ended up killing the governor, soldiers, and other officials.
  • By 1789, the National Assembly was in control of the French Government. Feudalism was abolished and nobles had no special privileges. All people were declared free and equal. 
  • Ah! Alas we own the government.
  • Yes! What a great feeling this is!
