    • The French Revolution Background & Origins
    • The Palace of Versailles: King Louis XIV’s Palace
    • King Louis XIVof France
    • King Louis XVIof France
    • The Ancien Regime (The Old Rule of the King)• French society was broken up into three estates• 1st & 2nd = 500,000 people• 3rd = 2.5 million people• Society was based on tradition and in equalities that were enforced by law.
    • The Three Estates in France• Estate = Social class in France• 1st Estate = Priests & Clergy• 2nd Estate = Nobility (rich), owned land, paid no taxes, collected taxes from the 3rd estate.• 3rd Estate = 98 % of population, middle class, peasants, urban workers. Some had wealth, but they had no status in French society.
    • So why did the French Revolution happen?• Influence of ideas from the Enlightenment(equality, natural rights, overthrowing the government)• Influence of the American Revolution(if colonists can break away from Britain, why can’t the 3rd estate change France?)
