dc.description.abstract Ferdinand, Duke of Orléans, is on horseback with Marshall Soult. The horse is jumping from Paris to Lyon, symbolic of their rushing to Lyon. They are going to Lyon to quell the insurrection and the riots which occurred over a cut in wages in the silk industry. Soult arrived with an army on December 5, 1831 to suppress this rebellion of the poor. Daumier’s evolution as a political caricaturist advanced rapidly. It was just a matter of time to expect a reaction by the King’s police. These policemen were called “guisquetaires”, named after the chief of the Paris police. The retaliation came in late 1831 with the riots of the Lyon silk workers fighting for higher wages and better working conditions. The King sent his son, the Duke of Orléans to pacify the rioters. Daumier represented this useless activity in three pints, the first being DR 30. The government only allowed its publication after some text changes. The second and third prints (DR 32 and DR 33) were immediately forbidden by the censor. ORLÉANS, Ferdinand Philippe Louis Charles Henri Rosolino, Duc d’ (1810-1842) was the elder son of Louis-Philippe. He participated in the Carlist wars in Spain and in the intervention in Algeria. In 1837, he married the German Princess from Mecklenburg-Schwerin and was proclaimed Royal Prince in 1830. He died in 1842 in an accident. SOULT, Nicolas Jean de Dieu (1769-1851) was Minister of War, Prime Minister, Duke of Dalmatia and Marshal under Napoléon I. His coat of arms showed the cross (connection to the church), the cockade (revolutionary activities), the hat (Napoleon) and the lily (the Bourbon kings). Soult managed to occupy prime positions in all governments.
