Map of the Events
This symbol explains everything going wrong in France during the July Revolution. The burning Bourbon Flag represents the end of the Bourbon Empire, the Crown represents the reign of King Charles X, and the July Ordinance represents the anger of the people since they hated the new rules stated in the document.
France in July of 1830
Since it was the middle of the summer in 1830, it was extremely hot and dry in France. This caused the French people to want to migrate out of France. At the time, it was very expensive to leave the country, and everyone except the businessmen could afford to leave. Since they couldn't migrate, a group of businessmen found out about the July Ordinances King Charles X was in the midst of signing. These ordinances gave the people less rights than they already had. This had infuriated them. Because of this migration, the French had found their reason to once again revolt.
Burning Bourbon Flag
This political cartoon portrays the thoughts of the French people when they found out about the ordinances. They threw flower pots, paving stones, and roof tiles down into the streets onto soldiers to get their attention. This rebellious act resulted in 21 civilian deaths. This picture of 3 citizens throwing the 3 objects onto the ordinances shows how angry they are at the Goverenment for writing a document that takes away their rights.
When the restoration of King Louis took place after the French Revolution, King Louis XVIII wrote a new Constitution called "La Charte". This constitution gave the people rights similar to the "Bill of Rights" which would will soon be taken away when Charles X takes the throne.
After the French Revolution, King Charles X was chosen to rule hereditarily. This agitated France becuase they had no say in who would rule their country.
The posting of the July Ordinances is the main cause for this revolution. Not many people in France knew about this document until King Charles X had it posted in the local newspaper. This document took away many of the citizens' rights that they already had a limited ammount of.
After the French Revolution, France was left with old ideas of nationalism and democracy. When the July Ordinances were written, the people weren't given the rights they deserved, and these ideas gave the French people the thought to fight for what they wanted.
Economic failure was one of the main causes of the July Revolution. The left over debt from the French Revolution was still in tact in 1830. This was extremely frustrating for the French people because there was still a great portion of France living in deep poverty and unemployment.
During the July Revolution, the French had burned the Bourbon Monarchy flag. Due to this, they created a new flag called the "people's flag". The creation of this flag gave them a sense of power and they fought back even more.
The French people despised their ruler, King Charles X, so the main goal of this Revolution was to get rid of him. At the end of the Revolution they had achieved their goal.
After the overthrowing of King Charles X, a new ruler was set in place. His name was Louis Phillipe. Louis was chosen by the government so they were unhappy that they still didn't have a voice.
The positive effect of the French revolt causes a rise in national spirit in surrounding countries. These countries were Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Poland.
After the Revolution a new ruler was set in place. He wasn't chosen hereditarily so he was completely vulnerable to revolution. His brand new ideas caused the people to dislike him. He took away their rights and that caused yet another revolution in France. This leading to Louis Philipe being the last king of France
