(D'Allemagne, pag. 214): "Nouveau Jeu Historique et Chronologique de la Monarchie Française. Paris, Basset (1814). Taille-douce. 45x60,5. Depuis Clovis jusqu'à Louis XVIII le Désiré. Bien entendu, Napoléon n'y figure pas et pour cause. Au centre, statue de Henri IV."
This 63-space game was published to celebrate the Bourbon Restoration, specifically the triumphal entry into Paris of Louis XVIII (‘The Desired’) on 13 May 1814. In the winning space, he is shown in an open carriage surrounded by an enthusiastic crowd, the whole scene being overlooked by watchers in a balloon decorated with flags. All other spaces show a portrait medallion of one of the Kings of France, together with a captioned scene from his life. The succession begins with Clovis (here dated 481). The ‘goose’ spaces are marked with a fleur-de-lys (the traditional emblem of the Kings of the Ancien Regime) and are in an unusual sequence, with the scenes having no special relevance. Apart from the ‘death’ space, the hazards are on the expected spaces, but again the scenes have no special relevance.
However, on space 57 (rather than the usual 58), we find the assassination of Henri III, with the usual death rule of ‘begin the game again’.

"New Historical and Chronological Game of the French Monarchy (Nouveau Jeu Historique et Chronologique de la Monarchie Francaise)",c. 1815. Published by Paul André Basset (active 1785-181?), Paris, etching and engraving. Waddesdon Manor, The Rothschild Collection (Rothschild Family Trust).
This game celebrates the Restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. After the fall of Napoleon, Louis XVIII (the brother of Louis XVI, who had been executed during the Revolution), returned from exile to form a Constitutional Monarchy (1814-1824). The Victorious final square illustrates Louis XVIII – "le désirée" (the desired) - entering Paris on May 3, 1814. The game emphasises the restored monarchy’s continuity with the past and its centrality to the history of France. Each square depicts a king of France, beginning with Clovis I (c. 466-511). The educational theme of this game, designed to help players learn the history of the French crown, is amplified in square 62. Louis XVI is shown in captivity, teaching his young son (the future Louis XVII, who died in prison in 1795, aged 10).
