French Revolution

By Nicole

I’m going to be talking about Rumblings of Revolution in France. King Louis XVI was the king of France and he didn't want a republic. The Third Estate is part of the National Assembly and is the working class. The National Assembly wanted a constitution with the King.   King Louis believed that kings get their power from God and did not want a constitution. So, King Louis XVI decided to lock the National Assembly out at the next meeting. The National Assembly decided to meet at the tennis court. The Third Estate wants a republic, but the king says no and no longer wants to listen to the National Assembly. History can be fun if you really like to learn about what happened back then.
