This happened in the year 1789. King Louis XVI decided that he would push through with the meeting of Estates General. This did not occur out of the blue. This was carefully planned because King Louis XVI is aware of the government’s financial problems. The plan was to have only one vote for every estate. There are only 3 estates that are available that are composed of the nobles, the clergy, and the commoners.
It is evident that there were only a few people in the nobles and clergy. At that time, the third estate, wherein the majority of the people are categorized wanted to have more votes. They have done things in order to achieve the democracy that they have always wanted.
