Written by Emmanuel Joseph Sieyes as a political pamphlet in 1789. The Third Estate were the common people of France and were a nation within themselves. As such, they had no need of the First and Second Estates, the Clergy and the Aristocracy
The members of the Third Estate were arguing about the process for the Estates-General. The king's ministers had intended that the three estates meet and vote separately, with each estate having one vote. Instead, the Third Estate insisted that the three estates meet as one body, and that voting be by head so that each person have one vote (the Third Estate had as many members as the other two estates combined). When the deadlock over procedure could not be resolved, the members of the Third Estate declared themselves to be the only legitimate representative body, and renamed themselves the "National Assembly". They then vowed never to disband until they had written a constitution for France. They did this on 20 June 1789. The Third Estate invited the members of the other two estates to join them as part of the National Assembly, which they eventually did.
