The French society was divided into three Estates:

  1. First Estate: It comprised of the church and the clergy. They enjoyed certain privileges by birth. They were exempted from paying taxes to the state.
  2. Second Estate: In the second estate were the nobles and other rich members. They were also exempted from paying taxes. They also enjoyed feudal privileges. They were also paid feudal dues from the peasants.
  3. Third Estate: About 90 per cent of the population was peasants. They were obliged to work in the fields of their landlords as well as in their houses, and also serve in the army. They were paying all direct taxes like ‘taille’ and a number of indirect taxes also like taxes on the articles of everyday consumption.
