DE L'ANCIEN SUR LES LOIS MÉMORIELLES : LA LOI DU 19 JANVIER 1816 RELATIVE À L'ANNIVERSAIRE DE L'EXÉCUTION DE LOUIS XVI

Abstract : Abstract : Memory laws are not as recent as we might think. The laws of January 19, 1816 had already been adopted under the Restoration and Monarchy of July to, amongst other things, impose an annual mourning on the people of France, which would be held on January 21, this being the date on which Louis XVI was executed. The aim was both to make them feel guilty for the « crime » committed by the revolutionaries, but also to make them dissociate themselves, in front of other people, from those who had committed it. Far from being consensual, this provision was opposed by all those who wanted the country to be appeased. Up until 1833, the year the law was abolished, they called for its annulment, arguing that it directly breached the 1814 Charter and ultimately the 1830 Charter, which had nevertheless made oblivion a constitutional requirement. They also stressed the need not to create a war of remembrance and to let professional historians do their work.
