From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hundred Thousand Sons of St. Louis was a force mobilized by the Bourbon King of France, Louis XVIII to restore King Ferdinand VII to the Spanish throne during the Spanish Civil war of 1820-1823. Despite the name, the actual number of troops was around 60,000.[1] The force was led by Duke of Angoulême, the son of the future King Charles X of France.


During the Spanish Civil War, the carabineros of Republican Spain were nicknamed 'The Hundred Thousand Sons of Negrín.'[2] It is ironic that this nickname was adopted since they were on the side opposing the Nationalists - who were supported by the Carlists, the group which sought to restore the House of Bourbon to the Spanish throne.
