The Ogre abdicated today in 1814

Who would have dared to think it. Today in 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte who styled himself "Emperor of the French", abdicated, and the monarchy was restored under HRM Louis XVIII, formerly the Comte de Provence. though short lived before the Corsican smuggled himself back into France, he lasted a mere 100 days before fleeing to a British warship and final exile in St Helena, off the coast of south Africa.

Vive le Roy! Vive le Roy! Vive le Roy!
Richard Sieur de Brantigny, dit Boisvert
