The FIRST estate was the Clergy - Bishops and priests, Abbotts, monks and friars. Their representatives were mainly Bishops and Abbotts, all appointed by the King and all members of the nobility by birth.

The SECOND estate was the Nobility - from Princes and Dukes down to local squires and all their sons - every child of a noble was noble by birth.

The tird estate, of course, was everybody else.
