History on Prince Louis Philippe Robert d'Orleans (1869-1926) - "In 1880 Philippe's father Louis Philippe Albert d'Orleans granted him the title Duc d'Orléans. On 16 June 1881, he received the sacrament of confirmation at Eu. Growing up to be tall and blond, he later grew a beard.....Having no legitimate issue, he was succeeded as pretender to the throne of France by his cousin Jean, Duke of Guise," son of Robert d'Orleans, duc of Chartres.
All of the Capetian descendants have had dark auburn hair, meanwhile, the Jacobite Carolingian descendants have been tall and blond after Antoine Philippe (1775-1821?)? Orleans, Montpensier, Nemours, Chartres, Guise, Eu, Alencon, Paris. Think about this. All of this is merely to resolve a mystery. Who is Charlemagne d'Orleans? Is this true? What really happened in European history?
duc de Nemours (1814-1896)
Suspected true, hidden, & posthumous (?) son of Antoine d'Orleans and Lady Charlotte Rawdon.
A Carolingian Scion or Heir to the Throne lives in France today.
How is this possible? Charlemagne's grandson Charles the Simple escaped Robert by marrying Edward the Elder's daughter Eagdifu of Wessex, England. His hidden Carolingian descendants ascended to the British Throne as Stuarts....then as the Jacobites and in France, the Jacobin. So, who were these Jacobites/Jacobin? Were they merciless Revolutionaries? Or, were they honoring a Carolingian Scion? This has been a mystery enshrouded in confusion unfortunately for centuries. Perhaps, the time has come to reveal our good intentions for France.
The two biological and Carolingian sons of Louis Philippe II Joseph d'Orleans and Louis Marie Adelaide de Bourbon were Antoine and Charles. Capetian Louis Philippe III was not their son, but the son of Louis Philippe I, the fat (see below).

The Capetian Orleanists
Although not recorded, it is assumed that Antoine Philippe had a child with a lover named Lady Charlotte Rawdon in England. They may have eloped to New Orleans, Louisiana, America.
Louis Charles Philippe Raphael and Robert d'Orleans are thought to be Antoine's son and grandson, respectively, through a secret affair, which was common at the time....

Bonnie Charles Edward Stuart was known to have had numerous illegitimate affairs. He was in Paris from 1746-1748 when he was expelled from France for being a Jacobite by the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle of 1748, sometimes called the Treaty of Aachen (the Capital of Charlemagne's empire), that ended the War of Austrian Succession. Louise Henriette, yes, the wife of Louis Philippe I ("the fat"), was also a woman of disrepute. She apparently was not attracted to her royal husband, Louis Philippe I ("the fat"). Perhaps, Jacobite Bonnie Charles Stuart was the "coachman at the Palais-Royal?" Together, they would have birthed a child between 1746-1748. Conjecture? We think not. There are too many clues....

After additional genealogical research into the matter of Judicial Berengar, it would seem most plausible if Charles the Simple used the Frankish alias "Berengar" himself when he escaped to England to stay with Aesthelan along with Alan the Great. Together, Alan the Great and Charles the Simple as "Berengar," a Carolingian Peerage family name that meant "warrior with a spear," fought alongside each other and yet, the great grandson of Charlemagne married Eadgifu, daughter of Edward the Elder, son of Alfred the Great. Together "Berengar" Charles the Simple and Eadgifu had their first son Louis IV the Outreimer, born in 920AD, and then Charles left England to reclaim his land from Robert I and Hugh the Great. Charles the Simple was imprisoned in 923AD by Herbert II of Vermandois and died there in 929AD. Interestingly, Eadgifu might have visited him in prison in Peronne, France before Charles died and she may have escaped with a second endangered royal child in their son Judicial Berengar, who took upon himself Charles the Simple's alias while in England. This is conjecture. It might not have been Eadgifu who visited Charles in prison, it could have been a "Judith of Bayeux," or a daughter of Gurvand, Duke of Brittany, or a daughter of Erispoe. It most likely was Eadgifu, though, who interestingly, twenty two years after the death of her husband Charles the Simple, remarried Herbert II of Vermandois' and Robert I's daughter's son Herbert III of Omois, whose fathers had imprisoned and killed Charles the Simple, in 951AD. It seems it was a game of deadly and dangerous liaisons, and so that would explain the mystery behind the English lack of clear genealogical records for "Berengar." There appear to be an elder and a younger "Berengar." Some records refer to a "Judicael." But the records seem to point to two people using the name of "Berengar," which definitely was a reference to Carolingian roots, especially in the Frankish strongholds in Rennes, Nantes, Breton, and Brittany. Why was Judicael Berengar's son Conan I nicknamed the "Tort?" And why did Alan IV move back across the waters to Scotland? It was probably too dangerous for a hidden Carolingian family to remain in Capetian France. Although it is known he married Eadgifu, are there records of Charles the Simple living in Wessex, England? If not, that supports the hypothesis that Charles the Simple used an alias to hide from the veritable threat of the end of his line.

The next generations included the suspected four tall and blond Jacobite sons of Louis Charles Philippe Raphael of Nemours, namely Albert, Robert, Gaston, and Ferdinand Philippe Marie, whom it is suspected were therefore Carolingian. The Albert branch ended with his son Philippe. The Robert branch led to the Carolingian French Orleanist house through Jean of Guise; the Gaston branch to the Braganza Brazilian house; and the Ferdinand Philippe Marie branch led to ties with the British Windsor family tree.

Here is a portrait of apparently an auburn haired Ferdinand d'Orleans and blond haired Louis duc d'Nemours by Alfred Dedreux in around 1838.
Louis Philippe I d'Orleans was the son of "the Fat" and Madame de Montesson (above) and was born in the year of their secret affair and marriage in 1773! The Son of Louis Philippe Joseph's "father" Louis Philippe I ("the Fat") took back the throne for the Bourbons. It was privately known that Philippe Egalite was the son of Bonnie Charles Edward Stuart, the "Pretender King." So, it was privately arranged that Louis Philippe I would reign and the offspring of the Carolingian Jacobite King "over the waters," namely Antoine and Louis Charles would be exiled to America and abroad, and disgraced. 1773 was the same year that Louis Philippe I was born. So, Louis Philippe I had a son, Louis Philippe I. Understand? Louis Philippe I became the Citizen King during the July Revolution. He was definitely Capetian directly descended from Louis Philippe I ("the fat") himself. It is noted in historical records, that Louis Philippe I betrayed his "father" Louis Philippe Joseph. Why would he? Unless he knew the secret: Joseph was not his father.

Louis Philippe Albert (1838-1894)
Son of Ferdinand Philippe? Regardless, the important extant lineage is for brother Robert (on the Right).
Albert had a son named Louis Philippe Robert d'Orleans, who had no offspring, so the crown passed to the next of kin, the son of brother Robert, duc of Chartres, Jean of Guise.
All three of these boys pictured below supposedly were also the offspring of Louis Philippe III and his wife, Marie Amelie of Naples and Sicily. Note the striking physical dissimilarities. Henri (1822-1897 Aumale) on the left (Top mobile) looks like Louis Antoine Philippe (1775-1821?), the second Antoine (1824-1890 Montpensier) in the middle looks much darker, although he has the same name as the blond, as if to cover up history. And Francois (1818-1900 Joinville) on the right (bottom-mobile), are all allegedly sons of Louis Philippe III Citizen King. So, what is wrong with these pictures? Most would assume they possibly had different mothers, but the secret may be much more significant. They may have had different fathers that split the family tree. 2 blonds (Raphael and Henri) presumably from Louis Antoine Philippe, son of Louis Philippe II, and 3 dark haired sons of Louis Philippe III (Ferdinand, Antoine, and Francois).

Robert Philippe Louis Eugène Ferdinand d'Orleans -
Duc d'Chartres (1840-1910)
Doubtful that this blond was the son of dark haired Ferdinand Philippe d'Orleans, instead he is the suspected grandson of
Antoine d'Orleans (1775-1821?) and Lady Charlotte Rawdon.
Son of Louis-Charles-Philippe-Raphael d'Orleans of Nemours.
Raised by Louis Philippe I and Amelie as if he was Ferdinand Philippe d'Orleans' own son, after exile similar to Antoine (1775-1821?) in America and abroad.
Father of Jean de Guise.
"Charlotte-Jeanne Béraud de La Haye de Riou (4 October 1738 – 6 February 1806) was a mistress to Louis Philippe d'Orléans ("The Fat"), Duke of Orléans, and ultimately, his wife; however, Louis XV would not allow her to become the Duchess. She wrote and acted in several plays. She is known simply as Madame de Montesson....
Her beauty and intelligence attracted the attention of the widowed Louis Philippe d'Orléans, the fat (his wife Louise Henriette de Bourbon had died in 1759), whom he secretly married in 1773 with the authorisation of Louis XV of France. After her marriage to the Duke of Orléans, a member of the royal family and a Prince du Sang, her low rank did not allow her the title of Duchess of Orléans."
This portrait would have been completed before Ferdinand d'Orleans died in a mysterious horse drawn carriage accident in 1842. Some mistakenly identify the two as Louis Philippe Albert and Robert, duke of Chartres, but they were only infants at the time of this portrait.
"Born in 1840, [Robert] the duke [of Chartres] was very soon orphaned – his [alleged] father (Ferdinand Philippe d'Orleans) died in a cabriolet accident in 1842, and his mother died in 1858. Thus, during their childhood and adolescence, he and his elder brother (Louis Philippe Albert) were mainly looked after by their grandparents, King Louis-Philippe and Queen Marie-Amélie. He followed the rest of the Orléans family into exile after the 1848 revolution. Louis-Philippe refused to fire upon the revolutionaries and thus abdicated his crown in favour of Robert's brother (Louis Philippe Albert) on February 24. As a result, Robert's mother Helena presented herself before the chamber of deputies to proclaim her elder son king of the French and to have herself named regent, accompanied by her brother-in-law, (Louis Charles Philippe Raphael), the Duke of Nemours, and his children. However, the assembly of Ledru-Rollin, Crémieux and Lamartine, frustrated her plans and instituted the Second French Republic. Helena and her children thus left France for Germany, whilst Louis-Philippe and the rest of the royal family moved to the United Kingdom. There they set up home in Claremont, property of King Leopold I of Belgium, himself related to Louis-Philippe. Whilst in England, in 1858 his mother Duchess Helene of Mecklenburg-Schwerin succumbed to influenza, which she passed on to Robert.
Sent to Turin for military training shortly after his mother's death, the Duke of Chartres became an officer in the Piedmontese dragoons and fought in the Wars of Italian Unification on the side of France and the House of Savoy from 1859 onwards. He notably fought at the Battle of Palestro, for which he was decorated by King Victor Emmanuel II.
With the outbreak of the American Civil War in April 1861, Robert of Chartres and his brother, Prince Albert Philippe, Count of Paris, travelled to the United States to support the Union cause. On September 24, 1861, Chartres was commissioned a captain in the United States Army. He served as an assistant adjutant general on the staff of the commander of the Army of the Potomac, Major General George B. McClellan. He served in the Battle of Gaines's Mill on June 27, 1862 and resigned from the Union Army on July 15, 1862." [Brackets added].
Ferdinand Philippe Marie -
le duc d'Alençon (1844-1910)
Son of Louis-Charles-Philippe-Raphael d'Orleans?
Married princess Victoria of Saxe-Cobourg-Kohary (1822-1857). [Future house of Hanover/
and Gotha of England's
"Returning to Europe in 1800, the royal House of Bourbon was still in exile from France, so the brothers set up in England at Twickenham (Highshot House, Crown Road, building demolished in 1927). Later that year Antoine Philippe resolved to seek the hand in marriage of Lady Charlotte Adelaide Constantia Rawdon (d. 1823 or 1834?), daughter of the 1st Earl of Moira by his third wife, Elizabeth Hastings, 16th Baroness Botreaux (daughter of the 9th Earl of Huntingdon by his wife, Lady Selena Shirley, founder of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion). Despite her noble lineage, authorisation for the marriage was withheld by Louis, Count of Provence (the future King Louis XVIII), and the couple never wed.
In 1807 Antoine Philippe's pulmonary tuberculosis worsened. His elder brother wanted to take him to Devon to benefit from the fresh air but, twelve miles out of Twickenham, they had to stop at an inn at Salthill (near Windsor). Having a respiratory crisis, Antoine Philippe refused the ether Louis-Philippe wanted to administer and, murmuring to him "Give me your hand, I thought I was dying" ("Donne-moi ta main, j'ai cru que je mourais"), expired.
Louis Philippe had a funeral service held at the Catholic chapel on King Street in London, which Monsieur (the future King Charles X) attended and, thanks to Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, obtained permission to bury his brother in Westminster Abbey."
Among the Secret Society of Jacobites, it is suspected that knowing the family secret, that there must have been much animosity between Louis Philippe III, son of Louis Philippe I "the Fat," and Antoine, son of Joseph Louis Philippe II. In fact, it is thought that it is insinuated that Louis Philippe may have killed Antoine Philippe by not administering ether to him when he fell ill. It is a nice story. There is also a story that Antoine had a son named Jean Detende, who became a notary to the French Royal Family.
" He also had an illegitimate child with Françoise Barbaroux — a son called Jean-Antoine-Philippe Dentend (7 July 1797 – 5 March 1858)—who became notary to the house of Orléans and in that role oversaw Louis Philippe's donation of his personal property in 1830 before his accession." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Philippe,_Duke_of_Montpensier. .
The Next Generation
So, in all, Louis Philippe III, the Citizen King allegedly had 6 sons and 4 daughters with Queen Maria Amalia. Starting from the age of 28 to 42, she really bore ten children? As above, some had hair of gold, others dark auburn. After Antoine passed around possibly 1821, did Louis Philippe name his next son after the former Duke of Montpensier?
Louis Charles Philippe Raphael d'Orléans (suspected Jacobite son of Louis Antoine Philippe d'Orleans)
Charles d'Orléans (died age 8)
Henri d'Orléans (another Jacobite offspring by appearance?)
It is believed that Louis Charles Philippe Raphael d'Orleans, duc of Nemours, as well as Henri, duke of Aumale, may have been Antoine's (1775-1821?) sons in secret, and Louis Philippe III took care of them after Antoine's (1775-1821?) death, but made sure Nemours was not in line for succession to his Throne, which he assured to Ferdinand Philippe of Orleans. So, Nemours and Ferdinand likely grew up as brothers in the Palais Royal during the tumultuous times. However, there was likely tension growing up.
