The Marquis de Lafayette and the Comte de Mirabeau were members of the Second Estate. What reasons would they have for supporting the Estates-General and a constitutional monarchy? Consider their experiences,condititons in France at the time and the state of the monarch when making your decisions. Give as MANY reasons as possible.

I am not really sure about what reasons, please explain.

    Consider their beliefs in helping the ordinary people. Also remember that Lafayette fought with the Americans in their revolution.

    Read these two articles carefully.
