The 'Royal Sovereign' conveying Louis XVIII to France, 24 April 1814
The monarchy was restored in France when Napoleon surrendered and was imprisoned in Elba. Louis XVIII left Dover for Calais, on the afternoon of 24 April 1814 aboard the yacht 'Royal Sovereign 'and entered Paris on 3 May 1814. He was escorted by a squadron of British and Russian ships of war, under the command of Prince William Henry, Duke of Clarence (later William IV). The 'Royal Sovereign' is in the centre of the picture in starboard-broadside view. She is wearing the Union at the mizzen, the Admiralty flag at the fore and a white Bourbon flag at the main.
