Princesse Marie d'Orléans

Princesse Marie d'Orléans


Princesse Marie Amélie Françoise Hélène d’Orléans (1865-1909), daughter of the duc de Chartres, was born at Morgan House, Richmond, on 19 January 1865. She was the eldest child of Robert, duc de Chartres and his cousin, Françoise d’Orléans. She was thus the great-granddaughter of King Louis Philippe I through both her father and her mother. On 20 October 1885 in Paris she married Valdemar of Denmark (1858-1939), a son of Christian IX of Denmark, and younger brother of Alexandra, Princess of Wales. She died in Copenhagen on 4 December 1909.
