On May 2, the notables who had supported the First Consul came to meet Louis XVIII in Saint-Ouen, to propose a draft Constitution. The royal answer seems to deny any legitimacy to the revolutionary gains, 'Louis by the grace of God, King of France and Navarre...', the preamble seems to strike a 30-year history, and the revolution is at once ambiguous. It recognizes the important freedom. On 4 June, the king gives a charter. The text is dated to the 19th year of his reign, and therefore binding any break in the dynastic continuity. Catholicism was restored as the state religion.
