    This is a medal worn by suppoters of Henri d’ Artois (1820-83), grandson of the Bourbon king Charles X, known as le grande miracle. During the early Orleanist days he was seen as the legitimate candidate and was considered kiing (Henri V ) by them. He fell into oblivion until the end of the Second Empire, when in the early 1870’s he was considered a serious candidate amongst the various possibilities, indeed he had tacit support from Thiers. Unfortunately he refused any compromise in his sovereign rights and as a result he was largely forgotton by the mid 1870’s, your badge would date from around 1871-73.

    I hope this is of assistance,
