Jean-Henri Claude Mangin was a French magistrate (7 March 1786 Metz- 1835). He was head of the Paris police at the time of the Trois Glorieuses.
Due to the coup of Charles X and the Prince of Polignac in July 1830, he stated that "what we did was right, Paris didn't move, and it responded at its head.". On 27 July 1830, he ordered the seizure of four presses of journalists who, contrary to the July Ordinances, were publishing without authorisation. This was the signal for the typographers revolt which set about the 1830 revolution.
