He personified the old saying, “The Bourbons never forgot anything and never learned anything.”

Charles X (1757-1836; reigned 1824-1830) was the brother of Louis XVI and Louis XVIII, and was an increasingly unpopular ruler when he tried to restore the rights and property of the nobility that were lost during the Revolution. He was forced to abdicate the throne in 1830, living out his life in exile in England. His reactionary nature and extreme religiosity were his undoing.
