The Royal Almanac is a directory of the French administration, founded in 1683 by the bookseller Laurent d'Houry, published under this title from 1700 to 1792, then under various titles (Imperial Directory, etc.) from 1793 to 1919.
He presented each year, in the official order of precedence, the list of the members of the royal family of France, the princes of the blood, and the principal bodies of the kingdom: great officers of the Crown, members of the high clergy, abbots of the great abbeys (with the income of each abbey), marshals of France, colonels and general officers, ambassadors and consuls of France, presidents of the main jurisdictions, councilors of state, bankers, etc.
