French Royalty. Born Ferdinand Philippe Louis Charles Henri Rosolin, Prince héréditaire de France at Palermo, Italy, the son of Louis Philippe I d'Orléans, Roi de France in exile and Maria Amelia Teresa di Borbone, Principessa di Borbone delle Due Sicilie. He gained the title of Duc de Guise and was styled as Duc de Chartres before 1830. He gained the title of Duc d'Orléans in 1830. He married Helene Luise Elisabeth Herzogin von Mecklenburg-Schwerin in May 1837 at Fontainebleau, Île-de-France, France. The couple had two sons. Within five years, at the age of 31, Ferdinand-Philippe died in a carriage accident in Sablonville and was interred in a tomb in the Chapelle Royale, in Dreux, Eure-et-Loir. His tomb is noted for the fact that his Protestant wife was barred from burial in the Catholic chapel, but upon her death was interred in a room with a separate entrance attached to the chapel. An opening was made between her tomb and her husband's and the duchess' effigy reaches through it toward that of the duke.
