In this moment Prince Louis-Alphonse is quite unknown but the future could be different.The Orleans won't ever restore Monarchy.

He represents the main branch of the Bourbon and he is a French citizen.

The Orleans are the descendants of a "regicide" (Philippe Egalite) and of a "usurpateur" (Louis-Philippe) so it is quite difficult to trust them.

Well, Cory, by the same token: Michael of Romania is the son of King Carol, who was not a particularly great man (especially considering his personal life). But should that reflect negatively on King Michael? Of course not, because the son is an entirely different person from the father.

Yes and he is in a better position to be king once the monarchy is restored.

Being immoral in the private life is one thing and being "regicide" or "usurpateur" something very different!

The monarchy won't be restored. There's more probability that the official maîtresse-en-titre of Louis XV shall be beatified by the Pope...

Ah ah ah good one

Believe me french people are too versatile (and far too complicated) to have another royal ruler again (and a spanish born king is just unthinkable).
That's said we are very proud and attached to our royal (and imperial) history and our relatively young Republic ("only" 140 years) has kept in some (lavish) ways a good part of this regal legacy.

Monarchists (be they Legitimists, Orleanists and Bonapartists) may be a minority position, but they have always been present in French politics and whatnot. For a lot of the Third Republic period they were a serious political force- Patrice de MacMahon, Duc de Magenta, was President of the Republic during the 1870s and a man of Legitimist sympathies.

World War I brought profound changes to France both domestically and internationally, and not all positive, and this caused the Third Republic to break down- and the Fourth repeated those problems. It was because of that De Gaulle decided that the Fifth Republic should have the most powerful head of state since the monarchy!

Who knows for sure the future must be a profet....The future will be decided by the French people and they do not seem to be very happy about the nowadays regime.

Sure, it's your opinion :)

Its amusing if not bewlidering, that the 21st century still breeds indaviduals who are of the belief that a return to an autocratic state (as your post would suggest) on the continent would be acceptable, let alone endorsed.

Just don't be too dissapointed that if by the end of your days, the 'wondrous restoration' you speak of remains dead and very much burried.

Bah we are not happy with ANY regime ... More seriously to disagree with a person in general and his behaviour in particular doesn"t mean we are against the political regime and the institutions.

You can't be serious. Come back to a pre 1789 regime ? A divine right monarchy? Wake up Dear Versailles times are definitively over (they were already over in 1804 so in the 21st century ....).

The constitutional Monarchy would be very proper for France and Prince Louis-Alphonse would be a very modern King I suppose.

Isabella de Medici seems like an evil brooding
presence over the French Monarchy.
She played a big part in persecuting the Hugenots,
she was heavily into the occult.....
Maybe she has more than a little to do with the
eventual downfall of the French Monarchy in the 1790s
