Previous Second ministry of Armand-Emmanuel du Plessis de Richelieu
Successor Ministry of Jean-Baptiste de Martignac

The Ministry of Joseph de Villèle was formed on 14 December 1821 after the dismissal of the Second ministry of Armand-Emmanuel du Plessis de Richelieu by King Louis XVIII of France.[1]

During this ministry King Louis XVIII of France died on 16 September 1824.[2] He was succeeded by his brother, who became King Charles X of France.[3] After the elections of November 1827, which were unfavorable to the government, the ministry was dismissed on 6 December 1827.[4] The king asked Villèle not to announce the change until a new ministry had been formed. The ministry was replaced on 4 January 1828 by the Ministry of Jean-Baptiste de Martignac.[5]
