This chapter focuses on the Catholic reconquest the Quinze-Vingts administration during the Restoration. On December 9, 1814, the most venerable of the anti-Concordat prelates, Monsignor Alexandre-Angélique de Talleyrand-Périgord, Archbishop and Duke of Reims, First Peer and Grand Almoner of France, came “as Grand Almoner to take possession of his rights to the Royal Hospice of the Quinze-Vingts and to exercise his functions as general and immediate superior of the said establishment.” The arrival of the Grand Almoner marked the end of the supervision of the hospice by the Minister of the Interior. The Quinze-Vingts also regained their 250,000-franc annual income that had been their due from the public treasury since the sale of the premises on the rue Saint-Honoré.
