The original Bill of Rights contained 12 proposed new amendments, which were referred to as Articles One through Twelve. The States subsequently ratified ten of the twelve Articles as the First through Tenth Amendments to the Constitution. The original Articles One and Two were not initially accepted, such that Article Three in the Bill of Rights became the First Amendment, Article Four became the Second Amendment, and so on and so forth.
It should also be noted that the Second Article in the Bill of Rights, regarding compensation for Senators and Representatives, was eventually ratified, in its original form, by the States to become the Twenty-seventh Amendment in May of 1992. It had been ratified by only five of the thirteen original States, along with Vermont (the 14th), by 1791 and therefore did not become one of the first amendments. However, it remained active over the years and, reflecting a revived interest in the issue in the 1980's, was then subsequently ratified by several additional states (40 out of 50) to eventually become enacted.
