Re: Emperor's Pay
In Response To: Re: Emperor's Pay ()

Excellent, Susan,

You obliged me to check and..... You’re right. The decree of the assemblée législative ( 10 aout 1792) canceled the Civil list, at the same time of the ‘Royauté’.

I have some information on the Civil list as given by the decrees of june 9 1790 and may 26 1791 :

The King and his house : 26.000.000 F
The Queen : 4.000.000 F
For the uses of the King: The Louvre and Tuileries (for his habitation), houses, buildings, sites, grounds, meadows, farm, wood and forests, including great and small parks of Versailles, Marly, Meudon, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Saint Cloud, Rambouillet and Fontainebleau; buildings and
lands dependences of the porcelain factory of Sevres; buildings and dependences of the manufacture of the Soap factory and the Gobelins; castle of Pau with the Park,

The expenditure of the ‘Garde Meuble’ was included in the civil list, the King could not use the furniture preserved in this establishment.
The King had the use of diamonds known as ' de la couronne', of the earls, precious stones, statues, tables, engraved stones, and other objets d'art pertaining to the State and of which it had been envisaged to make an inventory (never done).

Therefore, we can see that the Emperor restored for his ' civil list ' more or less the bases of the preceding decrees.
