The Great Compromise was one of the most important compromises that was reached during the framing of the United States Constitution. It had to do with the representation of the states in the United States Congress, which was the legislative body of the national government. By states with a bigger population, it was argued that the representation in the United States Congress should be based upon the population of every state. One of these states was Virginia, which had a very big population.

On the other hand, states with smaller populations argued that the representation in Congress should be equal. After a lot of contemplation, a compromise was constituted, which had a plan of two houses of the United States Congress. According to this plan, one house of Congress would have equal representation of all the states while the other house would have representation based on the population of the states. This compromise was called the Great Compromise.
