The French Revolution of 1830, also known as the July Revolution, Second French Revolution saw the overthrow of King Charles X, the French Bourbon monarch, and the ascent of his cousin Louis-Philippe, Duke of Orléans, who himself, after 18 precarious years on the throne, would in turn be overthrown. It marked the shift from one constitutional monarchy, the Bourbon Restoration, to another, the July Monarchy; and the substitution of the principle of popular sovereignty for hereditary right.

The column in the middle of Place de la Bastille doesn't commemorate the Bastille, but the July Revolution of 1830. Also called the Three Glorious Days, this urban revolt led to the overthrow of King Charles X. The 154-foot-high column dates from 1840. It’s engraved with the names of those who died during the three days, and underneath is a necropolis holding the remains of more than 800 victims of both the 1830 and 1848 revolutions. © Paris / Alamy
