In French history I would like to remind that in truth the Bastille Day on 7,14,1789 was not really the start of the Republic in France . Indeed all along 19th century was a hard fight between revolutionaries and monarchists for a come back to monarchy in France despite of the Revolution . The come back to French kingdom was in dates as follow :
Napoléon first = Emperor (Not a Republic but an Empire)
Louis XVIII = king (Back to kingdom)
Napoléon first = Emperor (Second come back to Empire)
Louis XVIII = King (Second come back to kingdom)
Charles X = King (Kingdom ,(Brother of Louis XVIII)
Louis Philippe = King (Kingdom , (Orleans's monarchy branch)
Napoléon III = Emperor (Empire , (Napoléon first relative [Nephew])
This , until 1872 when the French monarchy falls down definitely. Then, (Almost 1 century later Bastille Day), and only then, starts the Third Republic and overcomes the first President of French Republic with Mac Mahon .
