How it Was Caused
The National Assembly
The National Assembly has a committee of thirty members to make a constitution. The National Assembly calls itself the Constituent National Assembly, with full power to make laws; their main job is to draw up and adopt a constitution. Demonstrations and speeches take place at the Palais, Royal. The electors of Paris form a standing committee and a citizens’ militia.

Economy During Revolution
The cost of affording a normal lifestyle had shot sky high with the rise in bread prices and basic necessities. On top of this, the the working class was forced to pay heavy taxes to finance the governments running. This obviously led to the feeling of resentment within the "bourgeoisie" who wanted a more equal system of government in France. From this point of view they were the forerunners of the whole revolution but there was another side to this social awakening and that was the decrease of importance in the belief of God.
