§ 593. The revolution of July

19th century:
§593. The duke of Berry assassinated (1820.2.13); The revolution of July (1830): III-96.

The chief of Fossano shall have his throat cut,
By the conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound:
The event accomplished by those of the Tarpeian Rock,
Saturn in the Lion the 13th of February.

(Chef de Fossan aura gorge copee,
Par le ducteur du limier & levrier:
Le faict patré par ceulx du mont Tarpee,
Saturne en Leo xiij. de Fevrier.) (№2)

Keys to the reading:
Fossano: a city of Piedmont in the kingdom of Sardinia, 60 km south of Turin;

The chief of Fossano: The duke of Berry, whose parents being Charles X and Mary-Theresa of Savoy, daughter of Victor Amadeus III, king of Sardinia, may in this sense be the chief of Sardinia (Le Pelletier, 1867, p.256-257);

copee: For coupée; shall have his throat cut: «On the 13th of February, 1820, the duke de Berri was assassinated by a fanatic named Louvel as he was coming from the Opera» (§592, X-92). This expression is not a description of the deed in detail, but a paraphrase of assassination to fit it to the following verse 'conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound';

ducteur: Celui qui conduit (Godefroy). Conductor;

The conductor of the bloodhound and the greyhound: A sheer hunter. This expression refers to the fact that Louvel himself had been pursuing the royal princes as vivtims of his assassination as if in chasing preys since 1814, when he saw the enemies of France in all of the Bourbons restored, which also explains his political motive of the crime. And it does not mean, as Le Pelletier (id.) and Ionescu (1976, p.352) following him intend, the profession of Louvel, because he was not a stableman (palefrenier), but a saddler (sellier). Perhaps, the bloodhound and the greyhound symbolize two daggers, a big and a small one, that Louvel had with him when he stroke the prince with the former (cf. Bellart, 1821, p.10-12);

patré: Patrer, To bring an action to its final accomplishment, to its utmost consequence (Ionescu, id.);

the Tarpeian Rock: of the ancient Roman Republic. From its top were thrown down to death the criminals of state;

Saturn in the Lion: During the revolution of July, 1830, Saturn was in the sign of Lion (Ionescu, id.): January the 1st, 137.2°; October the 29th, 150.0°;

the 13th of February: Just the day of the assassination of the duke of Berry in 1820 (Le Pelletier, id.).

Ionescu's has accomplished the preliminary interpretation of Le Pelletier. He says that this quatrain involves four events in 1830:

«1. The Revolution of "July", which determined the abdication of Charles X.

2. The fall of Charles X, who was the last king of the Bourbons.

3. The duke of Bordeaux loses his title and goes into exile by the maneuvers of Louis-Philip of Orleans, who is allied wih the revolutionists. The duke of Bordeaux being the son of the duke of Berry, assassinated in 1820, was the only Bourbon with the right to succeed to Charles X.

4. The prince of Bourbon-Condé is himself also assassinated. He had also the right to the throne of France. Certain historians are of opinion that Louis-Philip is not foreign to this murder.

In brief, we may say that the year 1830 was the year of the Revolution of July and, at the same time, the year of the liquidation of the Bourbons in France...Le faict (the event of assassination of the duke of Berry in 1820) sera patré --- i.e. shall be brought to the finish --- par ceux du mont TARPEE --- i.e. by the Revolution of 1830. The disapperance in 1820 of one Bourbon shall be therefore continued in 1830, when all the other Bourbons shall be exterminated in turn.» (Ionscu, id.).
