1: Peasant Life | Anderson, James. Home Life In The Peasantry PL. Digital image. World History. N.p., 2007. Web. 15 Nov. 2012. . | Life for peasants was very hard because while the King, his wife, the nobility, the clergy were all out living an extravagent life peasants stayed poor. This angered peasants because they could barely put food on the table to survive but the rich people lived in complete luxury. This is a major cause of the French Revolution | The peasants felt they worked to hard while the other classes at the time lived a life of greatness rich and wealthy.

2: The Clergy | The clergy are the rich people of France. While the peasants are living lives of struggle and pain the clergy are rich on top of the 3 classes. The clergy has all the money and they dont have to pay taxes under the kings order. These are the peasants number 1 enemies.

7: The big problem in France at the time was money. With the extravagant spending of King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette the people of the lands had no money. The money was all in the hands of the nobility the clergy and the royals. With a setup like this the king made a tax system which only taxed the peasants. With only the peasants getting taxed there is no money left to feed their families. This angers peasants because while they work hard for a living the rich people didn't have to lift a finger and still get payed loads.
