A pension request for a Colonel of the Royal Vendean Army

1815. The Napoleonic Wars are about to end, Napoleon has not yet re-entered France for his "Hundred Days." A Bourbon King sits on the throne of France. It was on the 24 of February that Louis Renou, late Colonel in the Armee Royale Vendean requests a penson from his king.

His portrait, is extracted from the album of Marchioness de La Rochejaquelein.

I do not know that given the extraordinary events which were about to unfold if he did get his pension.
