The Duke of Orleans leaves the Royal Palace, Paris, 31st July 1830 (1882-1884)

The Duke of Orleans leaves the Royal Palace, Paris, 31st July 1830 (1882-1884). A man waves the republican tricolor as Louis Philippe, Duke of Orleans, makes his way on horseback through the barricades to the Hotel de Ville. The July Revolution of 1830 overthrew the monarchy of King Charles X and his unpopular conservative regime. Lous Philippe, head of the more liberal Orleans branch of the House of Bourbon, assumed the throne with the title King of the French, rather than the more traditional King of France in order to emphasise the popular origin of his reign. Louis Philippe ruled France until the monarchy was overthrown by the Revolution of 1848.

Although considerably outnumbered, the French won a tactical victory and safeguarded their retreat bact to France.

Moscow on fire, 15th September 1812 (1882-1884).Artist: A Etienne

Moscow on fire, 15th September 1812 (1882-1884). After the indecisive but bloody Battle of Borodino, the Russians abandoned Moscow to Napoleon and the French invaders, setting fire to stores of food before they left. The French occupied and looted the city which, consisting mainly of wooden buildings, was largely destroyed by fire. Hoping for a Russian surrender, Napoleon waited in Moscow for five weeks, but with no capitulation forthcoming, short of food and menaced by Russian manouevres outside the city, he began in mid-October what would become an epic retreat. When the Grande Armee finally crossed the Niemen out of Russian territory on 7th December only 20, 000 men out of the original force of over 600, 000 remained.
