What did the tennis court oath promise?

What National Assembly members swore not to disband until a constitution was written.?

Le Sermenty du Jeu de Paume - the Tennis Court Oath. They were meeting in a tennis court (indoors in those days) having been locked out of their proper meeting place. Incidentally, it was at this point, not before, that those present declared themselves to be a National Assembly. They had originally been simply the Third Estate, but had now been joined by sympathisers from the First and Second.


How was the membership of the national assembly different different from that of the estates general?

The National Assembly was formed mostly by members of the third estate, while the Estates General consisted of the first, second, and third estates.


Why was the third estate locked out of the estate general?

The members of the Third Estate were arguing about the process for the Estates-General. The king's ministers had intended that the three estates meet and vote separately, with each estate having one vote. Instead, the Third Estate insisted that the three estates meet as one body, and that voting be by head so that each person have one vote (the Third Estate had as many members as the other two estates combined). When the deadlock over procedure could not be resolved, the members of the Third Estate declared themselves to be the only legitimate representative body, and renamed themselves the "National Assembly". They then vowed never to disband until they had written a constitution for France. They did this on 20 June 1789. The Third Estate invited the members of the other two estates to join them as part of the National Assembly, which they eventually did.

Originally, at a tennis court at Versailles.
