Louis XVIII restores it in 1814 to strengthen his links with the other European monarchies. At his death in 1824, his brother and successor Charles X redirects the regime to an authoritarian monarchy in which he favors the traditional symbols.
Louis-Philippe duc d'Orléans is a distant cousin of the king. The son of a régicide and himself a patriot at the beginning of the Révolution, he does not conflict with the king during the Restauration and accepts the Saint-Esprit from Charles X.
On September 30 in Paris, Sotheby's sells the necklace and cross of the Saint-Esprit worn by the duc d'Orléans at the coronation of Charles X in Reims on May 29, 1825. The collar in enameled gold was realized by Ouizille et Lemoine, titular jewelers for the Légion d'Honneur, and the set comes from the collection of the comte and comtesse de Paris. It is estimated € 200K, lot 140.
The prince who received it in 1825 is also the responsible for the official disappearance of the order. A new revolution provides the power in 1830 to this duc d'Orléans. The man whom his opponents will nickname the Roi bourgeois removes various symbols to better stand out from the tradition.
Louis-Philippe I is roi des Français (king of the French) and not a king of France. He accepts the tricolore flag and deletes the order of the Saint-Esprit from the very beginning of his reign. The order will however be privately maintained by the descendants of the French royal dynasties.
