The revolution of 1830 in France brought about the coronation of Louis Philippe as King, but there were precious few social changes as a result.
Louis XVIII had given France a constitutional charter after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo. He agreed to the creation of a bi-cameral parliament and the artistic and intellectual freedom for all. The Constitutional charter was revoked by Louis's successor, Charles X, who also revoked the right to vote held by the middle class. A revolt resulted causing Charles to flee the country. He was succeeded by Louis Philippe who said he was "merely the king of the French people." Even though his reign looked promising, little changed. He promised to establish a "bourgeois monarchy," but did not follow through. The right to vote was not restored to the middle classes, and efforts at social reform all failed. It was the failure to reform that ultimately led to the Revolution of 1838 and the proclamation of a new French Republic.
