Many could blame Marie Antoinette for the French Revolution, because she was spent the countries money on parties, clothes, champagne and cake instead of helping the poor people of the country, but I don’t think she was why the revolutionist stood up for themselves, because there were much bigger issues going on at that time than an Austrian princess. Although she might have been one of the reasons why some Joined the Revolution, I don’t think she was the one who got everyone to form the Revolution. I think that the main reason for the Revolution was the whole states general thing.
The thing that flipped off the lower class who then formed the Revolution, was because they were treated like trash basically, they didn’t have the same rights and during the assemblies when someone was talking or presenting some changes, the lower class didn’t even know anything about it, because they were seated so far that they couldn’t hear anything, because of this they felt even more disrespected. After this once they formed the Tennis Court Oath everything changed for them. They were willing to stand up for themselves and they wanted to be heard.Although at the start when they broke into the Pastille it was quite a fail, because they didn’t accomplish anything by it, because the prison was basically empty, and they didn’t gain anything by doing what they did; the Revolution had a strong meaning for the ones involved in it. Other reasons for the revolution were the tax. The thing about this was that the nobles and the clergy didn’t have to pay the tax If they earned a lot of money (the richer you were, the less taxes you had to pay). Another unfair thing about money was that farmers and shopkeepers had to “rent” he land so that they could work.
For example when the farmers grew crops to feed themselves and their family, It wasn’t their land, It was the land of either the nobles or clergy, which means they had to pay to do what they could to survive. Another thing that some had to do to earn food and some kind of life was that they sold themselves to provide certain services for the rich, something Like slaves. These people had basically no rights of their own.
They sold their body and soul to the nobles or clergy, which meant that led they wanted to do something Like marry money or move somewhere, they couldn’t do It unless their “master” (the person that owned them) agreed to It.These people had to pay for doing their Job, for example If they baked bread, they had to pay a fee for using the oven. And their dues were: they had to pay a tax to the landlord each year, had to do several days of work for free each year, had to give their landlord a portion of the crops they grew although the landlords could ride over It while hunting. Over all the lives they were forced to live forced them to make a stand for themselves.
The mall reasons for the Revolution were the nobles, the clergy and anyone who treated the lower class with disrespect or the ones who looked down at them and treated them Like slaves or trash. Merle Antoinette although she was rich and may have looked at them, she was Just one of many who did this. People from all over the country felt this way about their life and all of them wanted to be heard and wanted to have a normal life with equal rights, but that wasn’t going to happen unless they did something, so they ride, the Revolution was formed and the people tried to take a stand.French Revolution By submissions The thing about this was that the nobles and the clergy didn’t have to pay the tax if themselves and their family, it wasn’t their land, it was the land of either the nobles themselves to provide certain services for the rich, something like slaves.
