4 Meeting of Estates General
May, 1789

5 What your group might say about this:
SUMMARY: Under the Old Regime, the people of France were divided into three social classes or “Estates”. These were 1st Estate (clergy), the 2nd Estate (nobility) and everyone else (the 3rd Estate) who paid all the taxes but had no influence on the government. By 1789, France faced bankruptcy because of overspending by King Louis XVI and his family. The King was forced to call representatives of the 3 estates to meet fore the first time in 175 years. Each estate got one vote under this system. SIGNIFICANCE: The 1st & 2nd Estates together had always outvoted the 3rd Estate and this is what King Louis XVI expected in However, Enlightenment influenced middle class delegates of the 3rd Estate called Bourgeoisie used the meeting as an opportunity to voice their anger at the absolutist French system, sparking the revolution. IMAGE: This cartoon illustrates how the 3rd Estate (common people) felt they were chained and unfairly carrying the burden of the King and other Estates (clergy & nobility) on their back.
