Charles X, grandson of Louis XV and brother of Louis XVI and Louis XVIII, took control of the French Empire in 1824. He tried to recreate the absolute monarchy enjoyed by his predecessors before the Revolution. The people of France, however, wanted a monarch who would accept the principles of constitutional and parliamentary government. Charles' abdication on August 4th 1830 put an end to aristocratic control in France It could be said that the minting of the Charles X 20 Franc coin marked the end of absolute aristocratic control in France.
