  Count of Paris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The title was given by Louis-Philippe I to his grandson Philippe, as show of gratitude towards the City of Paris and in reference to the early ancestors of the Capetians.
His genealogical heir was Juan, Conde de Montizon, but most legitimists recognised Philippe, Comte de Paris as heir to the Comte de Chambord, because Philip V of Spain, ancestor of the Conde de Montizon, had renounced his rights to the French throne.
Thus, the Comte de Paris is presently the Orléanist pretender to the French throne.

 Philippe, Comte de Paris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Louis-Philippe Albert d'Orléans, Comte de Paris (August 24, 1838 – September 8, 1894) was the grandson of Louis Philippe I, King of the French.
As Captain Philippe d'Orleans, the Count of Paris served on the staff of the commander of the Army of the Potomac under Major General George McClellan for nearly a year.
It was assumed by most that the Comte de Paris was Chambord's heir, and would thus be able to succeed to the throne upon the childless Chambord's death, reuniting the two claims that had rent French monarchists since 1830.

 Legitimists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fall of Louis Philippe in 1848 led to a strengthening of the Legitimist position.
The Orleanists agreed to recognize Chambord as king, and the Orleanist claimant himself, Philippe, Comte de Paris, recognized Chambord as head of the French royal house.
The death of the comte de Chambord in 1883 effectively dissolved the parti légitimiste as a political entity in France.

PARIS, LOUIS PHILIPPE ALBERT DORLEANS, COMTE DE (1838-1894), Son of the due dOrlans, the eldest son of King Louis Philippe, was born on the 24th of August 1838.
The Orleanists were driven into exile, and the duchess proceeded with her two sons, the comte de Paris and the due de Chartres, first to Eisenach in Saxony, and then to Claremont in Surrey.
The popularity of the Orleans family, however, was shown on the occasion of the marriage of the comte de Pariss eldest daughter with the duke of Braganza, son of the king of Portugal, in May 1886.

Robert de Clermont, a son of Louis IX, was originally given the title and apanage of comte de Clermont.
To Philippe was given the apanage of Orléans in 1661, and from him is descended the house of Orléans.
The comte de Paris is the head of the only branch of the Orléans family who could claim the throne, since the Orléans-Bragance and the Galliera branches are not French citizens.

 The Bourbons
Anjou continued to be the traditional title for younger sons of France: it was bestowed later in 1710 to the third son of the duc de Bourgogne (later Louis XV), and in 1730 to the second son of Louis XV (died in 1733).
The Paris Court of Appeals confirmed the judgment on November 22, 1989, essentially saying that since 1830 there is no throne of France, and therefore the arms of France: Azure three fleur-de-lys or, are the arms of a family and not arms of dominion.
The latter seat is held by the count of Paris, the duke of Anjou was elected to the former in 1983, as next of kin of Louis XVI, upon which the count of Paris resigned in protest against the admission of the "so-called duke of Anjou".

 The Failed Restration of 1873   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
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.

Louis-Philippe, King of the French, was the eldest son of Louis Philip Joseph, duke of Orleans (known during the Revolution as Philippe Egalité) and of Louise Marie Adelaide de Bourbon, daughter of the duc de Penthièvre, and was born at the Palais Royal in Paris on the 6th of October 1773.
The character of Louis Philippe is admirably traced by Queen Victoria in a memorandum of May 2, 1855, in which she compares him with Napoleon III.
His eldest son, the popular Ferdinand Philippe, duke of Orleans, who had married Princess Helena of Mecklenburg, was killed in a carriage accident on the 13th of July 1842, leaving two sons, the comte de Paris and the duc de Chartres.

 French Restoration To the Collapse of the Third Republic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Charles X was forced to flee and Louis Philippe ascended the throne, and ruled, not as "King of France" but as "King of the French," an evocative difference among contemporaries.
Paris was left unprotected and emptied of troops, with a woman at the Tuileries, a terrified Assembly at the Palais-Bourbon, a ministry, that of Palikao, without authority, and leaders of the Opposition who fled as the catastrophe approached.
However the two groups came to a compromise, whereby the childless Comte de Chambord would be recognised as king, with the Comte de Paris recognised as his heir.

 Comte Saint-Germain: The Immortal German Alchemist.
The Comte de Saint-Germain was a man "of middle height, strongly built, and dressed with superb simplicity." He spoke with an entire lack of ceremony to the most highly placed personages and was fully conscious of his superiority.
Later, Madam de Gergy told Madam de Pompadour that she had received from Saint-Germain at Venice an elixir that enabled her to preserve, for a long time and without the smallest change, the appearance of a woman of twenty-five.
Mademoiselle de Genlis asserts that she met the Comte de Saint-Germain in 1821 during the negotiations for the Treaty of Vienna; and the Comte de Chalons, who was ambassador in Venice, said he spoke to him there soon afterwards in the Piazza di San Marco.

He was the eldest son of Lieutenant-General de Caylus and was educated with the greatest care by his mother, a woman of much ability and literary distinction, whose "Souvenirs" are full of valuable information for the history of the time.
After his return to Paris, he wrote his most important book, "Recueil d'antiquités égyptiennes, étrusques, grecques, romaines et gauloises" (Paris, 1752-67, seven vols., the last two volumes published after his death).
In his moments of leisure Caylus took pleasure in composing novels, humorous pieces, and fairy tales, which were published together under the title of "Oeuvres badines" (Paris, 1787).

His first tragedy was, after his election from Paris to the Legislative Assembly of the Second French Republic, to fritter away that force on June 13, 1849, when the democratic-socialist leadership dissolved into squabbling factions and left their followers at the army's mercy.
After France signed an armistice and only Paris was still fighting, Considerant, who had joined the Socialist International, assured his fellow members of the Paris Commune that the age of warlike, aristocratic societies was ending and that soon they would be living in a peaceful, productive world (417).
Signing himself "Victor Considerant, visionary and American citizen"(451)--Considerant became a United States citizen in May 1858 and remained one for the rest of his life--he advised his fellow Communards to establish a federated "Proudhonist" France (418).
