Roles of the Estates General

the grievances

The Estates tended to accept and welcome representative assemblies and constitutional rule and agreed about many social and economic reforms, but they still wanted to contribute what they thought needed to be changed.

Grievances

* called cahiers

* these were lists drawn up by each assembly

* they are considered the best sources of the thoughts of

the French people before the revolution

* accompanied every stage of the electoral process

The Grievances

the first second estate s cahiers

The First estate was made up of the Roman Catholic clergy.

Their grievances stated that they insisted that the estates should vote by order.

The second estate was made up of the nobles.

Their grievances consisted of mainly the same things that the first estate’s did.

The First & Second Estate’s Cahiers

the third estate s cahiers

Because of how large the third estate’s population was, the type of people varied, as did their cahiers.

* Peasants’ grievances showed the “critical importance of the electoral consultation in the crisis of 1789”.

* In some of the poorest groups of people, hunger was a big issue that was described in their cahiers.
