Duke of Valois Jean Gaston


French Prince and Grandson of France, a member of the House of Orléans.

His father, Gaston d'Orléans, was the youngest brother of the late Louis XIII; as such, Jean Gaston was born during the reign of his first cousin, the 12-year-old Louis XIV.

He was never able to walk and could not speak - Jean Gaston had a crooked leg which had been attributed to his mother, the Duchess of Orléans, lying on her side throughout her pregnancy.

The little Duke of Valois died at the Palais d'Orléans of diarrhoea on 10 August 1652, a week short of his second birthday.
