Composition of the Chamber of Deputies

The 1827 general election organized the third legislature of the Second Restoration. The election was held on 17 and 24 November.

Only citizens paying taxes were eligible to vote, and despite this, the Ultra-royalists loyal to Charles X of France came in second.

Charles X of France dissolved this Assembly in 1830 and sparked the 1830 election.
