The estate system was division of three different groups. The first estate was made up of the clergy(Church). They made up 1% of the population and owned 10% of the land. They also taxed the peasants heavily to avoid paying taxes themselves. The second estate was made up of nobles and kings. They were about 4% of the population but owned 20% of the land. They lived rich lives and taxed peasants to avoid paying their taxes. The Third estate was everybody else. They were workers and farmers. some were rich but never went up to the 2nd or 1st estate. The third estate was taxed heavily making the poor poorer and this helped the rich stay rich.
An Estate was one of the three social classes in France. It was part of an extremely unfair and completely religious based idea that God chose who he wanted to be in power. The Clergy(basically the church) and the King(royalty) made up the first class. The Nobles(Counts, Countesses, Knights, ect.) made up the second class. The third class was made up of everybody else, from experienced doctors and musicians to poor homeless people living on a street.
