Answer :

Storming of Bastille became the main cause of the French Revolution because of the following reasons.

a. While the National Assembly was busy at Versailles drafting a constitution, the rest of France faced turmoil. Due to bad harvest, price of bread increased.


b. This situation worsened with the bakers hoarding supplies.


c. Women who stood in queues at the bakery stormed the shops. At the same time the king had ordered troops to move into Paris.


As a result, on 14 July the angry crowd stormed and destroyed Bastille. It was hated by all as it stood for the despotic powers of the king.
