Prince of Orléans Henri (circa 1897)


Prince of Orléans as the eldest son surviving to adulthood of Prince Robert, Duke of Chartres, and Princess Françoise of Orléans.

In 1897 Vittorio Emanuele, Count of Turin, challenged Prince Henri to a duel after Henri described in several articles on Le Figaro, the Italian soldiers being held captive in Ethiopia during the first First Italo–Ethiopian War as cowards.

The duel with swords, directed by the Count Leontieff and the Count Avogadro, lasting 26 minutes took place at 5:00 AM on 15 August 1897 in the Bois de Marechaux at Vaucresson, France. Vittorio Emanuele defeated Prince Henri after 5 reprises. The "Monseigneur" Henri received a serious wound to his right abdomen, and the doctors of both parties considered the injury serious enough to put him in a state of obvious inferiority, causing the end of the duel and making the Count of Turin famous in Europe.

While on a trip to Assam in 1901, Prince Henri died at Saigon on the 9th of August.
