How to vote?
This is when trouble started..
The Estates-General sat for several weeks in May and June 1789 but came to an impasse over the first item on the agenda: whether they should vote by estate
, giving the first two estates an advantage, which was the King's choice, or vote all together
, giving the Third Estate the advantage.
first estate: 300 representatives
second estate: 300 representatives
third estate: 600 representatives
