  1. orleanist

    An Orleanist is an adherent or supporter of the House of Orleans, a branch of the French royal family, particularly during the 19th century. They believed in constitutional monarchy, a system of government in which a monarch shares power with a constitutionally organized government. The term is often used in reference to those who wished for the return of the French monarchy following the French Revolution and subsequent governments. The Orleanist political faction was named for Louis Philippe I, who reigned France from 1830 to 1848 under the title of "King of the French."


  1. Orléanist

    The Orléanists were a French right-wing/center-right party which arose out of the French Revolution. It governed France 1830-1848 in the "July Monarchy" of king Louis Philippe. It is generally seen as a transitional period dominated by the bourgeoisie and the conservative Orleanist doctrine in economic and foreign policies. The chief leaders included Prime Minister François Guizot. It went into exile during the reign of Emperor Napoleon III and collapsed with the establishment of the Third Republic in 1870. It took its name from the Orléans branch of the House of Bourbon, who were its leaders. The faction comprised many liberals and intellectuals who wanted to restore the monarchy as a constitutional monarchy with limited powers for the king and most power in the hands of parliament. Orleanists were opposed by the more conservative Bourbon faction, who wanted the heirs of Louis XVI restored to the throne with great powers. Both Orleanists and Bourbons were opposed by republicans who wanted no king at all.
