The representatives of the third estate viewed themselves as spokesmen for the whole French nation. They assembled in the hall of an indoor tennis court in the grounds of Versailles on 20th June, 1789. They declared themselves as a National Assembly. They decided not to disperse until they had drafted a Constitution for France which would curtail the power of the monarch. Mirabeau and Abbe Sieyes were the prominent leaders of the National Assembly. Thus, it heralded the awakening of the French people to revolt against the oppression by the privileged classes, which led to the revolution.
