The Monarchy of Louisiana are the de facto rulers of Louisiana, first created after the Louisianans won the War of Louisianan Independence against Spain in 1770. For almost two years after Louisiana became a sovereign stateFrancis de Gaston, Chevalier de Levis, a prominent military commander during the Independence War, was recognised by Parlement as the de jure King of Louisiana. However, Lévis died of unknown causes in August 1771, and the Marquis de Vaudreuil was elected as the de facto King of Louisiana, and officially coronated on Christmas Day, 1771.

House of Vaudreuil

Originally after the War of Louisianan Independence ended in favor of the Louisianan rebels, Francis de Gaston, Chevalier de Levis was named as King of Louisiana in the original Louisianan Constitution, which was ratified in early 1771. Lévis arrived in New Orleans in March of that year and was officially proclaimed the de jure King of Louisiana by Parlement in March 10, 1771. However, Lévis was never officially coronated, meaning that he never officially served as King of Louisiana. After his death in August of the same year, an election was held in Parlement, and Marquis de Vaudreuil, a former Governor of French Louisiana held the majority of votes and won by a landslide, officially being coronated on Christmas Day of the same year.
