With Napoleon being banished to the remote island of Elba, France is without a ruler. King Louis XVIII, a descendant of the very king that the French were fighting to overthrow, takes the throne. This event just went to show that the 10 years of fighting to get rid of a king from the Louis dynasty, had just come back to them. they went from having a king to having another king. Moreover, King Louis XVIII planned to reverse all the reforms made by the revolution, thereby returning France to its original state of an absolute monarchy.
