French Monarchy 1. The French Monarchy was under attack by the majority of the people with Abbes Sieyes’ “What is the Third Estate?” The common people wanted more of a say because there is a greater majority than the wealthy. This was an attack towards the monarchy and it demonstrates the growing power of the common people and the pamphlet itself increased tensions between the two classes. B. English Monarchy (1688) 1. The English Monarchy was under attack because the people wanted to get rid of the monarchy which was eventually overthrown. The Glorious Revolution in England kicked the king out of power. William and Mary brought in and powered up the parliament and added power in legislative system. Then, in 1689, the Bill of Rights was passed by the Parliament where the King cannot tax and has no control of law. This bill overturned the power of the monarch altogether and it also limited the king's powers in taxing and prohibited the maintenance of a standing army in peacetime. III. Church/Bible A. Catholic Church 1. The Catholic Church was under attack against the Protestants and the state.
