July Monarchy

The July Monarchy was established in France with the reign of Louis Philippe of France. His predecessor, Charles X, abdicated during the July Revolution, which had been launched in July of 1830 by the middle-class, who were outraged at the assumptions of the ultraroyalists. Charles X's chosen successor was his young nephew, Henri, conte de Chambord (1820 - 1883), but Henri never received the throne.
