"The Welcoming of a Marquis in Hell" The image points out the destruction of the nobility, depicting the arrival in Hell of a "marquis" and several other "aristocrats," described in the legend as "conspirators" and "traitors." In addition to economic differences, early modern French society was legally separated by birth. Its three traditional divisions, or "orders," were the clergy, the nobility, and the common people. Nobles ruled over commoners. Privileges were passed on primarily through inheritance, they tended to constrain social mobility. Alas, much more lies sick than poor Louis: not the French King only, but the French Kingship; this too, after long rough tear and wear, is breaking down. The world is all so changed; so much that seemed vigorous has sunk decrepit, so much that was not is beginning to be!--Born over the Atlantic, to the closing ear of Louis, King by the Grace of God, what sounds are these; muffled ominous, new in our centuries? Boston Harbour is black with unexpected Tea: behold a Pennsylvanian Congress gather; and ere long, on Bunker Hill, DEMOCRACY announcing, in rifle-volleys death-winged, under her Star Banner, to the tune of Yankee-doodle-doo, that she is born, and, whirlwind- like, will envelope the whole world! Thomas Carlyle, The French Revolution (1837) 17 July 1725)—On Saturday the fourteenth, a baker of the town Saint- Antoine tried to sell bread for thirty- four sous (cents) which that morning had cost thirty. The woman to whom this happened caused an uproar and called her neighbors. The people gathered, furious with bakers in general. Soon their numbers reached eighteen hundred, and they looted all the bakers' houses in the town from top to bottom. Some also profited from the occasion by stealing silver and silverware. This image of peasants repairing a cart demonstrates both the hard work done by cultivators and their fragile economic situation, which could easily be imperiled by a broken cart. Under such circumstances, poor people constantly repaired durable and personal goods, such as carts or clothing, because they could not afford to replace them with new ones. The poor hardly had enough food to eat.
These pictures represent causes of the French Revolution. In your own words, briefly explain 3-4 causes of the French Revolution after completing this activity.
