Can someone give me a cite on the official title under which Louis-Philippe d'Orleans ruled France after the July Revolution? I know he was 'King of the French' rather than 'King of France', but I need the full, official style.

Thanks.

I am not sure, but I think his official style was "By the Grace of God and by the constitutional law of the State, King of the French"

Thank you. I've also read that it was 'King of the French by the Grace of God and the will of the people' which is why I'm looking for a cite.

'Par la grâce de Dieu et par la loi constitutionnelle de l'Etat, Roi des Français' was the style imposed by the short-lived 1791 constitution. As far as I can see, Louis-Philippe was simply 'Louis-Philippe Ier, roi des Français'.

I think you're right. I've searched, looked at Wiki and actually read the Charter of 1830 without finding anything.

Can't find anything on the actual title either, but I recall something that he was styled simply as 'His Majesty' rather than 'Most Christian Majesty'.

An 1830 letter of Pius VIII to Louis-Philippe addresses the latter as 'Francorum Regi Christianissimo', but of course that does not mean that Louis-Philippe used the style himself.. Just a plain 'His Majesty' would seem more characteristic of the July Monarchy.
