July, the name of the seventh month in the Julian and modern calendars, and the fifth in the old Roman calendar. It had originally 36 days, but the number was reduced first to 31, then to 30, and finally the number was made 31 in the calendar authorised by Julius Caesar, in honour of whom the old name Quintilis was changed to Julius. The sun leaves Cancer and enters Leo during this month. It is celebrated for the "July Revolution," when Charles X. of France was set aside and Louis Philippe made king.
