 Legitimism in England
The Legitimist in England is an upholder of the monarchical principal because he believes it to be one divinely appointed for certain social conditions, and also because in the particular social conditions which this country has evolved it has been found to work satisfactorily.
The Legitimist in England today recognises more fully than anyone else the duty he owes to the throne, and he is prepared to discharge it, although he knows that there is one who has a better claim to occupy it than she who has occupied it so gloriously and so long.
This is the Legitimist's view, and it is an effective answer to the taunt of disloyalty flung at him; for were he aught but single-minded in his support for the abstract cause he would connive at the disingenuous policy which might considerably advance the interests of her whom he believes to be its proper representative.

 The Succession to the French throne   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The legitimist position is that the succession to the throne is dictated by centuries-old custom, and cannot be altered by anyone: thus, there is no legal way that the male-line, legitimate, Catholic issue of a grandson of Louis XIV could be excluded.

 The Eighteenth Brumarie of Louis Bonaparte - Chapter VI   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The true fusion of the restoration and the July monarchy was, however, the parliamentary republic, in which the Orleanist and Legitimist colors were dissolved, and the bourgeois species vanished in the plain bourgeois, in the bourgeois genus.
The Legitimists dreamed they were back amidst the quarrels between the Tuileries and the pavilion Marsan, between Villele and Polignac; the Orleanists lived anew through the golden period of the tourneys between Guizot, Mole, Broglie, Thiers, and Odillon Barrot.

 Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte
Although Orleanists and Legitimists, each of these factions, sought to make itself and the other believe that what kept the two apart was the attachment of each to its respective royal House; nevertheless, facts proved later that it rather was their divided interest that forbade the union of the two royal Houses.
As, in private life, the distinction is made between what a man thinks of himself and says, and that which he really is and does, so, all the more, must the phrases and notions of parties in historic struggles be distinguished from the real organism, and their real interests, their notions and their reality.
Each side wishing, in opposition to the other, to carry out the restoration of its own royal House, meant nothing else than that each of the two great Interests into which the bourgeoisie is divided--Land and Capital--sought to restore its own supremacy and the subordinacy of the other.
