    The period that followed the restoration of the French monarchy in 1815 is as dramatic and turbulent as the events that preceded it. The reigns of the last three kings of France were punctuated by intrigue, assassination attempts, street fighting and two further revolutions. Drawing on previously unpublished letters, this absorbing history charts the rise and fall of the 'citizen king' Louis-Philippe, giving due prominence for the first time to the role of his remarkable sister Adelaide.
