Le duc de Nemours
20 October 1860

Volume 2, page 45, sitting number 1480

Louis-Charles-Philippe-Raphaël d'Orléans, duc de Nemours [Duke of Nemours] was born in Paris on 25 October 1814. He was the second son of Louis d’Orléans, afterwards Louis-Philippe I, King of the French.

In 1831 he was elected King of the Belgians, but Louis-Philippe refused the crown in his son’s name. After the abdication of his father in 1848, Nemours, like the rest of his family, went into exile in England. He spent the years of his banishment trying to unite royalists and restore the monarchy. After the fall of the Second Empire in 1870, he was allowed to return to France.

He died at Versailles on 26 June 1896.
