Description - The Court of France 1789 -1830 by Philip Mansel

This attractively illustrated volume describes the succession of courts and monarchies in France from the revolutionary period to the fall of Charles X. It shows decisively that the revolution resulted in a stronger monarchy and a larger and more elitist series of courts than had previously existed. The book is based on many years of research in public and private archives throughout Europe. New light is thrown on the nature of the French Revolution and on the character and policies of Louis XVI, Napoleon I, Louis XVIII, and Charles X, who led their courts through periods of unprecedented formality and splendor.
