But at best she has the Joanne Lumley part in "Shirley Valentine",
and for the time being she has a aristocat pet,or like we say here...

Talking about the french aristocracy,could anyone elaborate on the Rochefoucauld family?

Thanks, I seen the list of wikipedia but is there a non-royal ducal peerage list

Hey, does anyone have any information about the current Ducs d'Havre, Feltre and Reggio. I look on wikipedia and it stated that these French noble houses were still extant but no other information about there current status.

Gabriel de Rochechouart, duc de Mortemart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Someone showed me a book about the French nobility and the above family, which has existed since the 10th century is about to become extinct because the present Duke has 4 daughters.

Isn't there in some countries a system that the title then goes to the nearest male relative I was wondering?

I don't think the title will become extinct; I guess the title will go to the nearest male relative (now, the Duke's first cousin once removed Charles Louis Guillaume Franois Marie Eugne Victurnien, b. 1933) and after him to his descendants.
A similar situation happened in 1987, when Louis, Duke de Broglie (1892-1987, famous physician and Nobel Laureate) died without descendants; his title passed to his cousin twice removed Victor-Francois, the present Duke.

Yes, he has three children: two sons, Alexandre, b. 1961, married without children, and Arthur, b. 1967, married with a son and a daughter, and a daughter, Athenais, b. 1963.
After them, there are a lot of male members of Mortemart Family who can inherit the title.

Jacqueline de Ribes' father was Count Etienne de Beaumont. The Bonnin de La Bonniniere de Beaumont family is one of the grandest of France. For a man of such exalted patrimony, he was very avant-garde. He was a set designer for ballets and opera. He was a socialite and hosted some of the most famous balls of the Paris season. Amoung his artists' friends were Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Erik Satie, and Darius Milhaud. With his wife dith, tienne de Beaumont founded the Association Franco-Amricaine, which funded works by Paul Morand, Maurice Sachs, Jean Cocteau, Marc Allgret, Bernard Fa, Lonide Massine, Lucien Daudet, Ren Crevel. The extremely talented and young Raymond Radiguet, at the time lover of Jean Cocteau , based the main character of his novel, Le Bal du comte d'Orgel, on Count Etienne de Beaumont. Their palatial town house on 2 Rue Duroc was built for Prince Masserano and is one of the most beautiful hotel particulier of Paris

It's a French marchional family, known since XI century; their fiefdom was the village of Castelbajac, in Hautes-Pyrenees (south-west of France).
The current Marquis of Castelbajac is fashion designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac.

I'm afraid I can't give you more informations

85-years old Viscount a protagonist of misterious murder in France

A murder trial in the south of France reads like an Agatha Christie novel: the whimsical aristocrat, the rough and ready gardener and the wealthy husband who insists he is innocent.
85-year-old Viscount Amaury d'Harcourt, from a long line of nobility, is accused of disposing of the murder weapon, out of friendship for Mr Bissonnet. - Full article -- Sydney Morning Herald

Hey, does anyone have any information of the descendants of Henri Clarke, Comte d'Hunebourg, Duc de Feltre living today (especially anyone who holds the titles today)? Is the male line extinct and if so when did it become extinct in the male line. Thanks
