They were not paying tax but imposing the tax on public and the law and order situation was ever worst in the history of France.

France’s treasury had become empty because of the help of the US in war freedom. The inflation was touching the sky. The poor were becoming more poor while richest becoming more richest, So decided to impose more tax on public.

There were 3 parts of the parliament, one part of the ruler, the second part of the church and the third part of the people which was 97 %. The authority of public representatives were limited, they lived afraid of elite but today their voices became high and they protested against tax implementation but the king refused to accept their reservation on tax. Then In June 1789, the public representatives hold a meeting out of the parliament named this meeting National Assembly.

The king ordered the police and the army to remove them, but public representative refused to obey. Finally, a half-month later, with the help of foreign soldiers, they were dispersed and arrested.

The king became satisfied, but on the next day, people attack “Bastille ” released prisoners and released all the people with all the weapons in jail . as a result the king government become weak and The insurgency also raised the head at village level and at the end in 1791 king tried to escape from the country but people caught him and arrested.
