ORIGIN :
Estate of Monseigneur Prince Henri d'Orléans, Count of Paris, Paris Drouot, October 30, 2000, lot 178.

HISTORY:
Article 5 of the order of May 15, 1814, on the appointment of colonels general decided that the King's cousin, the Duke of Orléans, became Colonel General of the Hussars. We only see this superb sabretache from behind, notably in the painting by Baron Gérard representing the Duke of Orléans in the uniform of colonel general of the hussars (1817). This sabretache takes up the motif of the sabretaches of the old regime (found on the sabretaches of the Bercheny regiment) with the number of the sovereign (the two opposite Ls) and the letter "R" (like "Rex", or King ). This figure was that of King Louis XVI and will be taken up by King Louis XVIII.

LOUIS-PHILIPPE :
Louis-Philippe I, or simply Louis-Philippe, born October 6, 1773 in Paris (France) and died August 26, 1850 in Claremont House, Surrey (United Kingdom), is the last king to have reigned in France, between 1830 and 1848, with the title of “king of the French”. Much less traditionalist than his predecessors, he embodied a major turning point in the conception and image of royalty in France.
First prince of the blood under the Restoration (because he is a descendant of Louis XIII), Prince Louis-Philippe, during his life, successively held the titles of Duke of Valois (1773-1785), Duke of Chartres (1785-1790) and finally that of Duke of Orléans (1793-1830) before acceding to the crown in 1830, his cousin Charles
Eighteen years at the head of a kingdom undergoing profound social, economic and political changes, Louis-Philippe – through the July Monarchy – attempted to pacify a deeply divided Nation with the weapons of his time: establishment of a parliamentary regime, accession of the bourgeoisie to manufacturing and financial affairs, allowing economic growth of major importance in France (industrial revolution).
Louis-Philippe wanted to be a “citizen king” listening to the real country, called to the throne and linked to the country by a contract from which he wanted to draw legitimacy. However, it did not respond to the desire to expand the electorate, for the most conservative by lowering the census, for the most progressive by establishing universal suffrage.
