National Assembely The Third Estate representatives that attended the meeting of the Estates General came to the conclusion that they were getting nowhere when it came to the representationsof the people within their estate due to the Nobles and Clergy.Due to this the members of the Third estate locked themselves in an indoor Tennis Court within the palace of Versailles taking an oath to form a constitution for France and they planned on not coming out until they did this. After this King Louis the XVI decided upon combing the Estates into one in which they would be called a National Assembly. With the failure of the Estates General,Louis the XVI blamed Jacques for this failure so he was dismissed from the national assembly. With this and many other vents the people broke in a scrabble for arms and with the lack of gunpowder within the people who sided with the national assembly decided to raid the Bastille a fort and prison in which they found weapons and gunpowder.
