Louis Philippe

Talleyrand was openly contemptuous of the manner in which Louis Philippe handled many of the crises which marked his reign. "How do you think this government will end?" he was once asked. His reply? "Accidentally!"

[After deserting the Army of the French Revolution in 1793, Louis Philippe lived in exile for some 20 years -- three of which were spent living in one room over a bar in Philadelphia.]
