Why peasants were not invited to the general staff?

Answer from: markova5vetlana:

The Estates General, an assembly of the estates in France, were formed in the Middle Ages.The first assembly was convened in 1302. It consisted of three chambers. The first was the clergy; the second, the gentry; the third, the representatives of the town councils. In the general states, the peasants were not allowed, because they were dependent on the feudal lords, and the general states have always been a body representing the propertied classes of French society.
