The revulotion starts

When the king realised that he coulnd´t press the farmers on more treasure he even tried whit the ”higher” people like the priests, but they didn´t not want to pay of course, so they said that the king couldn´t decide that whitout calling the goverment.

The king has to ask the goverment for permit to include the ”higher” people in the tax system, something that havet happend in 175 years, so of course it was very embarising for the king.
During the meting whit the goverment they started to argue about votingrules instead of giving him permit to allowing his new rules.
