Café Histoire: la Restauration

Monday 8 December 2014 17:30-19:00

Les débuts du parlementarisme en France (1814-1830)

Napoleon abdicates on 6 April 1814. When he lands on Elba on May 4th, Louis XVIII becomes Kink in Paris. After the short experience of 1791, the constitutional monarchy now seems to be the best possible regime again for the French. The time seems also right to experiment with the parliamentary system.
