Inadvertent error[edit]

The coat of arms is not that of the ancien regime, but is that of the Bourbon restoration after Napoleon. The article, Ancien regime, was therefore forced to feature two coats of arms for the anciem regime. As far as I can make out from the picture sources, the one we want for ancien regime has the two shields for Framce and Navarre. It was abolished in 1790. The other is symbolic falderal designed for a king-not-really-king of the "restored" Bourbons. They weren't "restored" long I dare say, but that is neither here nor there. They weren't ancien either. Anyway I'm changing the pic. See also talk for anciem regime.Branigan 00:30, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
