Ancien regime (means old order) was the political and social system of the Kingdom of France prior to the French Revolution in 1787.
It was in effect from the late middle Ages (circa 15th century) until the later part of the 18th century. Under the Ancien regime, everyone was a subject of the King of France as well as a member of an estate and province.
The Ancien regime divided the society into three estates: the First estate (clergy), the Second estate (nobility), and the Third estate (commoners) and the King was part of no estate.

Hereditary monarchy and the feudal system of French nobility were abolished
