The act or an instance of forgiving
The amnesty of the 4th Brumaire of the year IV.
Charles granted the city a full amnesty, and confirmed its liberties and privileges.
Upon the restoration of the Bourbon government (May 15, 1849) he was excluded from the amnesty and compelled to flee to Piedmont.
At last, worn out by age, he accepted an amnesty and returned to the city of Mexico, where he died in obscurity on the 10th of June 1876.
This he put to account when the amnesty of 1866 enabled him to return to Germany.
