This chapter examines the second return of the Bourbons in France during the summer of 1815. It suggests that the return of royalist leader Francois Froment was an ominous portent of things to come for the Protestant community and it heralded the last bloody chapter in the history of the religious conflict between the Catholics and Protestants in Bas-Languedoc. In 1815, Froment unleashed a reign of terror in Nîmes and the Basses-Ceveness which killed about 200 Protestants. This so-called White Terror of 1815 was only part of Froment's wider plan aimed to the installation of an ultraroyalist administration in Paris and at the overthrow of the Protestant political hegemony in the department of the Gard.

Keywords:   Bourbons, Francois Froment, religious conflict, Protestants, Catholics, White Terror
