The Three Estates
The three estates of France were created as a type of government.
The three estates were: Clergy, Nobles, and Commoners.
One of the only things the three Estates had in common was that, they all had less power than the king.
No matter which Estate you were in you always had less power tan the king.

Comparing the Three Estates of France
The First Estate
The first Estate was the Clergy.
It consisted of about 2.2% of the population of France.

The Third Estate
The Last Estate was called Commoners.
They made up 95 to 97 percent of the French population.

The three Estates were very different overall. Some of their differences were:
They all had a different amount of political power. Order: King, Nobility, Clergy, Commoners
The nobility and the Clergy did not have to pay taxes, while the Commoners had to pay taxes.
The Estates are also different on the amount of people that made them up. Ex. Nobility 1%, Clergy 3%, and Commoners 96%.
The Clergy's members were priests, bishops, and other members of the church.
They were the second most powerful estate and didn't need to pay taxes.
The third Estate was the least powerful out of the three. They had close to no political power, and had to pay taxes while the other two estates didn't need to.
The Second Estate was the Nobility, they were about 0.8 percent of the French population.
The members in this Estate were the lords, ladies etc.
They were the most powerful estate, and just like the Clergy didn't need to pay taxes.
It not as powerful as the king.
