June 30: Heart Queens, Part Deux

After the Revolution, after Napoleon, after the short-lived return of the Bourbon dynasty, France adopted a constitutional monarchy. Louis-Philippe was elected monarch. This was a sort of compromise with democracy. The Empire of Napolean was over, but the idea of Empire was not. France in the 1830's undertook a new campaign to rule the world, starting with Algeria. The greatest enemy of that 'empire' was an Algerian philosoper and military strategist named Abd-el-Kader. It took years to capture him, but when Algeria fell, so did Abd-el. He was imprisoned here for several years after his capture.
