The dethroned shall not restore his scepter; He shall detest the young children of the greatests: The Count of Chambord [the dethroned] did not restore the monarchy of Charles X [his scepter] in 1873 when the royalist fusion was opened because he did detest [honnira] his partner the Orleanists, the descendants of the younger branch of the Bourbons [les enfans jeunes des plus grands], who, partisans of the Tricolor instead of the white flag, did prefer a republic to the monarchy in White: « The Orleanists said that they did not want to make the monarchy in white (la monarchie ‘en blanc’), and Broglie wrote (24th [August 1873]) to Falloux: “ … We should anticipate the obstinacy of which the Count of Chambord has already given more than a proof… and reserve for ourselves a second solution that wards off the complete disorder of the conservative party…, a temporary, but sufficiently long-terminable power, commited to MacMahon.” The chief of the government accepted in advance the failure of the monarchy, and prepared himself to another regime.» (Seignobos, 1921b, p.367-368).

Their spouses:  The partisans of MacMahon and Broglie.

The king:  President MacMahon.

There had been no more miserable nor sorer being  [than Chambord], [because] the king shall banish him to [political] death in favor of their spouses: The letter of Chambord from Salzbourg denying the possibility of the Tricolor, dated 27th and disclosed 29th October 1873, was « for the Royalists a thunderbolt, a collapse, a broken dream; it filled the Imperialists and the Republicans with joy. Partisans and adversaries, all saw at once that it made the monarchy impossible... The public, ill-informed about the sentiments of the Count of Chambord, understood that he refused to return to France to reign, for fear of resistances or of complications with Germany. His confidents have energetically protested against this interpretation. He waited his return to France, hoping, with the aid of God, by his personal ascendancy, make accept his government and his standard.» (Seignobos, id., p.374-375)

« The Orleanist chiefs were prepared for the failure of the restoration, and probably they desired it; they at once took their measures to keep indefinitely the provisory regime and the government of the conservative party… There remained none other but the solution prepared by de Broglie, a prolongation of the powers of MacMahon, sufficiently long to combat with authority against the radicals… But, the hazard gave the majority of 8 against 7  to the republicans in the allotment of bureau of the commission. The Left Center declared itself ready to extend the Presidency, but “ in tying tight the law of prolongation to the prompt organization of the Public Powers.” The prolongation, instead of perpetuating the provisory, would serve to found the Republic.» (Seignobos, id., p.375-376).

« The Count of Chambord, uneasy, arrived secretly in France, hoping to restore the kingdom by means of a personal agreement with the President of the Republic. He stayed hidden at Versailles in the house of his faithful of Vanssay during twelve days (November 9-21); the secret, kept by twenty persons, was known neither to the Assembly nor to the police. The Prince expected to appear suddenly in the Assembly on MacMahon’s arm, and make recognize himself as king in the transport of enthusiasm. He sent his confident de Blacas to say to MacMahon that he wished to see him. MacMahon replied that his honor defended him to enter secret conferences; the Assembly had wanted to restore the monarchy, but since the letter of the Prince, it judged its return impossible; this situation imposed on him new obligations he refused to betray. Chambord was grieved by this refusal which deprived him of all means of taking action.» (Seignobos, id., p.376).
