Duc D'Orleans Gaston


French aristocracy, the fifth child and third son of Henry IV and Marie de Medici. Weak and treacherous, he was privy to intrigues and betrayal. With a feline charm, he enjoyed a frivolous life-style, and often went to gay bars in disguise. Indecisive and short tempered, Prince Gaston always made every effort to escape responsibility.

In August 1626, he married Marie de Bourbon-Montpensier; she died giving birth. He married Marguerite de Lorraine in 1632; she had three daughters and a short-lived son.

Gaston died of a stroke on 2/02/1660, age 51.
