 Charles X
Charles X, King of France from 1824 to 1830, was the fourth child of the dauphin, son of Louis XV and of Marie Josephe of Saxony, and consequently brother of Louis XVI.
After the execution of Louis XVI he received from his brother, the Count of Provence, the title of lieutenant-general of the realm, and, on the death of Louis XVII, that of "Monsieur." In 1795 he attempted to aid the royalist rising of La Vendée, landing at the island of Yeu.
The best that can be said of Charles X is that, if he did not know how to rule, he knew how to cease to rule.
