Louis the 16th of course sanctioned massive
military aid to the rebels in America which must
have infuriated the British establishment at the time.
Many say that without the French military and naval assistance their revolution would have floundered.
Lafayette was of course rabidly anti British as his father was killed on the battle field by British soldiers.
Lafayette dreamed of revenge and of leading an army into Britain and plunging his sword into the very heart of Britain.
Of course, Louis the 16ths flagrant aid to the rebels eventually rebounded on him and he faced
those same revolutionary forces at home... forces that eventually took his life ... also his wife and family.

Yes, Louis helped the Americans, greatly. Much needed help. What he missed was why theose forces were fighting against the King of England. Not giving people their rights and the great overclass, spurred on the French Revolution. Simple explanation.

Parisians don't want the monarchy back, but France does.

It would appear that the French are in a better position to make any such judgement.

The question is which family could be the Royal family? I don´t think the French want families who failed in the history.

My suggestion: Carl Philipp of Sweden. He is a Bernadotte

The French have no clue who Bernadotte was.

Oh, really?

No harm meant, but how can you be such a fervent supporter of the French monarchy? Have you lived here?

Imagine the potentical in having a constitutional monarchy in place in france today. All one has to see what denmark and england have and what france could have. France was THE biggest and brightest monarchy with well stemmed traditions and culture. not saying a republic france doesn't have culture, but there is something in having it actually existing and current then having a painting on a wall, or text saying this is what it once was.

P.S I'm a supporter of god! and his chosen people.

Well they tried that. ended up with europe in caos and a meglamaniac dictator running the country. despite the mobs and wars france is still one of the highest taxed if not the highest taxed country in the world.

I'm suprised that at such a forum the only thing I have read is republic propoganda reguarding France. So this forum must only be in favour of reighing monarchy's. fascinating.

The Forums don't have opinions, individual members do.
Posting that the majority of people in France do not support the restoration of a monarchy is not "republic propaganda", it is a statement of fact.

Why is it the French who miss out? If they don't want a monarchy, what are they missing out on exactly?

High taxes? Then it can join Australia..lol.

There is no sentiment (nothig which would be considered) for the restoration of the monarchy in France. It's that simple.

They have the Houses Bourbon, Orléans and Bonaparte. All contentious Houses, all putrefied by elitist ambition and chiefly amongst themselves. It says alot for unanimity..haha.

It was a monarchy of playboys, deception and self enduced alcoholic comas..lol. The frivolity and fashions of the French court is what it was truly famous for.

The only real possibility for the restoration is a real campaign in favour of only one Pretendant.The Prince Louis-Alphonse could be the solution in the future .The count of Paris is not a popular figure.

None of the claimants are truly popular figures, it must be said.

Prince Louis-Alphonse is not enough known and at the moment does not live in France.He would be more accepted than the descendants of Philippe Egalite.

If its true that the count of Paris is not really a popular figure, Louis Alphonse is not a figure at all. The Orleans were highly popular in the 50's and 60's (with a last retoration project back in 1965) and they have still a very few "prestige" from this area (despite the desastrous behaviour from the late count of Paris ).
Louis Alphonse is a total stranger for the general public...
The Bonaparte are very discreet, but the Princess Napoléon '"Madame "Mère" is a well known figure in military and cultural circles.

A Spanish born King of France in this, the 21st century. Yeah, I don't think so...lol. Claimant, or not.
