About This Publication

In August 1816, the Royal Kingdom of Hayti celebrated the “fête” of the Queen, Marie-Louise Coidavid, at Cap-Haïtien. The people of the city evidently welcomed the monarch and his family into the city with open arms. Baron de Vastey subsequently published a pamphlet about the lavish celebration with his, Relation: de la fête de S. M. la reine d’Hayti, des actes du gouvernement qui ont eu lieu durant cet événement, et de tout ce qui s’est passé à l’occasion de cette fête (1816), leading newspapers around the world to report these events as well.
