Charles X of France was bornon 9 October 1757 in Palace of Versailles, France, French, is King of France and Navarre. Charles X of France was born as Charles Philippe to Dauphin Louis de France and Dauphine Marie Josephduring the reign of his grandfather King Louis XV. At birth he was made Count of Artois by the king and spent the greater part of his life as such. As Charles had three elder brothers, he had little chance of becoming the king. However, with the death of his eldest brother in 1761 and father in 1765, he quickly moved two places up in the line of succession and ultimately became the king on the death of his brother King Louis XVIII of France in 1824. From the very beginning, he was an ultra royalist and could never accept the supremacy of the ‘Third Estate’ comprising of common people. Even King Louis XVI, who was guillotined during the French revolution, had described Charles as ‘more royalist than the king’. Later, as he became the king he took every available measure to bring back the glory of the royal house, ignoring the fact that the time had changed and to survive they too must change. It was because of this he had to abdicate his throne in 1830 and die in exile.
