  Comte de Paris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Louis-Philippe, Comte de Paris (1838–1894): French Orleanist monarchists referred to him as "Louis-Philippe II", and then later when Henri, comte de Chambord died, he was recognized as the royalist heir by almost all French monarchists, and was occasionally known as Philippe VII.
His genealogical heir was Juan, Conde de Montizon, but most legitimists recognised Philippe, Comte de Paris as heir to the Comte de Chambord, because Felipe V of Spain, ancestor of the Conde de Montizon, renounced his rights to the French throne.
Thus, the Comte de Paris is the Orleanist pretender to the French throne.

Henri VI bore his royal heritage with such political finesse that French republican leaders on both the right and the left mourned his passing.
Henri attended the University of Louvain in Belgium, and married Isabelle, granddaughter of the last Empress of Brazil.
Henri later moved them to Portugal, but after the war, the French allowed his heir to go to school in Bordeaux in 1947 and, three years later, abolished the law of exile.

 Glossary of People: Co
Comte’s father, Louis Comte, a tax official, and his mother, Rosalie Boyer, were strongly royalist and Roman Catholic and at odds with the republicanism and scepticism that swept through France in the aftermath of the French Revolution.
Comte’s most important acquaintance in Paris was Henri de Saint-Simon, one of the founders of socialism and one of the first to see the importance of economic organisation in modern society.
Comte’s "law of the three stages" maintained that human intellectual development had moved historically from a theological stage, a transitional metaphysical stage, in which explanations were in terms of essences, final causes, and other abstractions; and finally to the modern positive stage, distinguished by an awareness of the limitations of human knowledge.

 Guardian | DNA may solve riddle of French king's death
Now two geneticists hope to provide part of the answer by DNA testing a heart preserved in a crystal urn which was supposedly removed from the king after he died of natural causes at the age of 10.
Despite opposition from the pretender to the extinct French throne - Henri, Comte de Paris - a Belgian scientist and his German colleague will be searching for genetic evidence that the heart once belonged to a member of the Bourbon royal line.
The Spanish Bourbons have never hidden their contempt for the Orléanist ancestors of the Comte de Paris, who they see as cynical usurpers who plotted the destruction of the legitimate French royal line.

The Comte de Chambord was persuaded to accept the following compromise by M. Charles Chesnelong, who was sent to see him on behalf of the monarchist deputies and who sought a solution acceptable to the right and the center who made up the majority in the Assembly (14 October 1873).
The Comte de Chambord was now faced with a fateful choice and, fully conscious of the reality of the political divisions even among the monarchists, despite his gesture to the Comte de Paris, decided to reject the uncertain compromise.
The Comte de Chambord in his will of 5 July 1883 had named his nephew the duke of Parma his universal heir, with the reserve for the enjoyment first of his widow, with many individual legacies to other family members, including the duke of Madrid, who was bequeathed the collars of the Orders.

During the Second Empire the discreet opposition of the Orleanists, exercised for the most part with infinite dexterity and tact, by reticences, omissions, and historical studies in which the Empire was attacked under foreign or ancient names, was a perpetual thorn in the side of Napoleon III.

Henri d'Orleans, Comte de Paris, was a direct descendant of the last king of France, Louis Philippe, who fled the country in 1848.
The only possible way Henri's actions could be deemed Foolish is if he had decided that his asset classes were too heavily concentrated in the French property market and illiquid items like antiques, paintings, diamonds and jewellery.
However, if carefree Henri had decided to put just this £40 on the FT 30, today he would be sitting on a remarkable £3.24m -- an average annual return of only 7.7%, in a period that included the last five years of the Second World War followed by a period of widespread nationalisation.
