- THE ORLEANS
The Orleans line was the last line from the Capetian dynasty. It mounted the throne of France in 1830 and provided only one monarch, Louis-Philippe I, the last king to reign in France. The line descended from Philippe, Duke of Orleans and brother of Louis XIV, a fifth-generation forebear of Louis-Philippe I.
His reign lasted for eighteen years, from 1830 to 1848, and was known as the "July Monarchy".
The 1848 Revolution and the abdication of the king finally put an end to monarchy in France and to the Capetian dynasty.
Louis-Philippe I's descendent, Henri, Count of Paris, was born in 1933 and is currently the head of the House of Orleans and pretender to the throne of France.
King of the French People (9.8.1830-24.2.1848).
Louis-Philippe, the eldest son of the Duke of Orleans, "Philippe-Egalite", was the leader of the younger branch of the Bourbons which descended from Philippe of Orleans, the brother of Louis XIV. In 1789, he enthusiastically supported the Revolution, took part in the battles of 1792-1793 but passed over to the enemy after the defeat at Neerwinden (March 1793). He sought refuge in Switzerland then travelled through various countries (Germany, Scandinavia, the USA, England and Sicily). He returned to France upon the Restoration of the monarchy (1814) but remained distant from the Bourbons who disliked his progressive ideas. He frequented bourgeois circles, owners of immense property and wealth who saw him as a hope for the future. The 1830 revolution which removed his cousin, Charles X, from the throne led to his accession. He was proclaimed Lieutenant General of the Kingdom and accepted the crown. He swore an oath of allegiance to the revised Charter and became King of the French People at the beginning of August. Louis-Philippe I's reign was a true constitutional monarchy but was especially favourable to wealthy businessmen at a time when France was undergoing its own industrial revolution. The first years of the reign were troubled by legitimist opposition reflected in the uprising led by the Duchess de Berry in 1832, by Republican riots (in Paris in 1832, 1834 and 1839), by unsuccessful attempts on the part of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte to instigate insurrection (1836 and 1840), by social unrest (revolt by silk workers in Lyon in 1832, Parisian workers' movement in 1840) and by attempts on the king's life (1835). In government, LouisPhilippe I sought support among the conservatives in the "Resistance" party such as Casimir Perier, Soult, Thiers or Guizot. Suffrage restricting the vote to landowners allowed for the election of Assemblies that reflected the policies implemented by the king and annihilated any attempt at opposition. The 1840's were a more peaceful period, marked by the long ministry of Guizot. Economic growth was strong and many people made fortunes, but at the cost of worsening conditions for the workers. However, Guizot's conservative policies and Louis-Philippe's determination to maintain peace on the international scene at a time when the people were dreaming of Napoleonic glory added to an economic crisis that shook the country led to manifestations of discontent. When the monarch and his prime minister refused to implement an electoral reform which would have increased the number of voters, the opposition organised the Banquet Campaign (from July 1847 onwards). In February 1848, a banquet was banned in Paris. The situation degenerated and became a riot then, eventually, a revolution. Louis-Philippe abdicated on 24th February and went into exile in England where he died in 1850. The Republic was proclaimed. During his reign, the conquest of Algeria had continued. It had begun in 1830 and was marked by the struggle against Abd-el-Kadir. Meanwhile, France began to build another colonial empire in black Africa and the Pacific islands. Major legislative measures were taken as regards domestic policies. The Guizot Law of 1833 organised primary education; the 1842 law set up the major railway networks. Louis-Philippe I was France's last reigning monarch.
