Louisiana is a nation in North America, occupying most of the territory New France had.
Initially a movement against spanish rule and preservation of the french heritage, the upper and middle class of Louisiana started the independence movement, supported by the recently independent Mexico and by the United States. The lower classes joined the movement quickly, and the spanish had no option. Louisiana was made independent by 1792, after some battles around New Orleans. Louis Philippe, Duke of Orléans was invited to become King of Louisiana, since he was a member of the French Royal Family, known by his defense of Liberty and Equality, by his nickname "Philippe Égalité".
