I am troubled by how the Church accepts governments that were installed by revolution as legitimate, yet we aren't allowed to start any revolutions!
The only way it makes sense to me is that God delivers us to our enemies from time to time, like the Jews in Babylon. He is also the only one who can get us out.
But as far as Catholic revolutions go, the House of Guise came pretty close. The House of Guise was a hardline Catholic family that was more popular with the French people than the monarchy in the 16th century. They set up what was called the Holy League. The Duke of Guise, like Essex in England later, except a Catholic version, always seemed like a threat to the sitting monarch. The Duke of Guise was led into an ambush and King Henry III kicked his dead body in the face ( according to the Catholic Encylopedia, not just to rumor ).
After the Duke of Guise died, Henri IV the former Huguenot ( Protestant ) took the throne. He had to convert to Catholicism to do so, but how sincere was it? He is the one who allegedly said "Paris vaut une Messe," or "Paris is worth a Mass," i.e. he'll sit through a Mass if he can be king. His life is disgusting to read about, frankly. He is also famous for the Edict of Nantes extending religious toleration to the Prots. In my opinion, that was the beginning of the end.
