 Estates of the realm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although some great churchmen came out of this system, much of the higher clergy continued to live the lives of aristocrats, enjoying the wealth derived from church lands and tithes and, in some cases, paying little or no attention to their churchly duties.
The ostentatious wealth of the higher clergy was, no doubt, partly responsible for the widespread anticlericalism in France, dating back as far as the Middle Ages, and was certainly responsible for the element of class resentment within the anticlericalism of many peasants and wage-earners.
The Estates-General of France dwindled in importance, and after 1614 it was not called again for 175 years until 1789, when Louis XVI convoked the Estates-General to address the financial crisis of the kingdom, which was effectively bankrupt.
