they wanted to end the monarchy in France at the time (1848 at the time of the barricades in France during waves of the revolution). french soldiers defended the monarchy.

(They didn't want to get rid of the monarchy in the beginning, they wanted a constitutional monarchy. They didn't want the king to have absolute power).

Due to the original thoughts from Professor Alm and myself, Professor Hatch, we have come to the conclusion that the lower class people were upset and tired of the first class people getting everything they wanted leaving the lower class with nothing. You're welcome for this wonderful answer that has taken our minds 10 years to compile from observation.

Because they were the poorest of all. They were the ones that were stugling to feed every mouth, had to pay taxes and saw the injustice of the members of the church, the nobility and their monarchs living in enormous luxury. Also, at that time they had a French Queen: Marie Antoinette, who wasn't really French, but Austrian. And eversince France had been at war with Austria for several years, she was the ultimate person to blame it all on. The lower class heard ridiculous and exaggerated stories about her and believed them.
