Louis XVI feared that France's government was going to be bankrupt, so he called a meeting of the Estates' General to find a solution. He had hoped they would vote to raise taxes, a simple solution. However, none of the Estates wanted this. Unfortuatly, Louis decided that the meeting would be according to the old rules, where the 3 Estates met separatly and each cast one vote, so the First and Second Estates' votes would outnumber the Third's. The Third Estate refused to meet seperatly, however, so they went outside to the tennis courts, declared themselves the national assembly of France, and swore to write a constitution! The revolution had begun!!
