Louis Philippe of France. Known as the “Citizen King” for his menial habits and public visibility, Louis Philippe (1773-1850) was a direct descendent of Philippe d’ Orleans (1640-1701), the youngest son of King Louis XIII (1601-1643). Being far removed from the crown, he was raised more harshly than a well-to-do commoner. Louis was 57 years old when liberals and political allies opposed to Charles brought him to power as a revolutionary monarch through a political coup.
