July Monarchy 1830 France
July Monarchy is the name given to the reign of the Orléanist king Louis-Philippe. He came to power in 1830 after the Parisian insurrection of the July Days—the trois glorieuses, 27, 28, and 29 July—had driven Charles X from power into exile [see Restoration]. In some respects the July Monarchy was a continuation of the previous regime, with a monarch, two chambers, and a small, wealthy electorate (though this continued to grow significantly throughout the reign).
