Prince of Conti Louis Armand II

Biography

French prince by birth and Prince of Conti, from 1709 to his death, succeeding his father François Louis, Prince of Conti. As a member of the reigning House of Bourbon, he was a Prince du Sang. His mother was Marie Thérèse de Bourbon, a grand daughter of Louis de Bourbon, le Grand Condé. He was nominated as the Prince of Orange by Louis XIV in 1712.

Louis was often described as being "hideous"; he was humpbacked and very unattractive. On 9 July 1713, Louis Armand married his maternal first cousin, Louise Élisabeth de Bourbon, known as Mademoiselle de Bourbon. They had five children.

His male line descendants died out in 1814; through his daughter however, he is an ancestor of the present-day pretenders to the throne of France and Italy and the kings of Spain and Belgium and the Grand Duke of Luxemburg.
