Duke of Penthièvre Pierre d'Orléans (circa 1880)


French Prince of the House of Orléans, styled Duke of Penthièvre, who was a grandson of French king Louis Philippe I.

Prince Pierre was an officer in the Union and French Navies and a global traveller.

Pierre d'Orléans was the son of François d'Orléans, Prince of Joinville and his wife, Princess Francisca of Brazil.

He died a bachelor on 17 July 1919, aged 73, in Paris.
