lets play true or false
Catherine de Medici-was she really in a loveless marrage?
Maria Leszczyńska,-did she die because the doctors bleed her to death?
Eugenia de Montijo-was she from the house of haspburgs?
Marie de Medici-she had a husband and her lover was killed by her brother?

I'll try to answer to some questions here:
-Catherine de Medici: she loved her husband (they both were 14 when they were married!!) Henri II, but he was in love with the beautiful Diane de Poitiers, who was 19 years his senior.
-Empress Eugénie: she was not a Habsburg, but was born a Grande of Spain, from an noble Irish mother (Kirkpatrick of Closeburn).

To mknyazev: Anne de Beaujeau was not a consort Queen, but only Regent of France during her brother King Charles VIII's minority. She was King Louis XI's daughter, and sister-in-law to Duchess Anne of Bretagne, who married Charles VIII, then his successor Louis XII.

I'm sorry Preity but I don't understand your question, and it appears other members don't either.

If you're referring to the Orléans Alençons, the last Duke died in 1910; his only son the Duke of Vendôme died in 1931, and his only son Charles-Philippe, Duke of Nemours and Duke of Vendôme and Alençon, died childless in 1970.

So if this is the family you are referring to, there is no news today. :)

Fun Fact

Actually, the last Louis de Bourbon recorded was Louis XX, which is kind of odd that realatives would think to name children Louis after the Revolution.

Women usually always had long hair until the 1910s or the 1920s. And for queens and princesses, and other richer ladies too, of course, wigs and extra hair was common.

Check out this link for the biography of King Charles. I find it a really excellent source.
http://www.xs4all.nl/~kvenjb/madmonarchs/charles6/charles6_bio.htm

This links are also very handy.

The past is was defines us.
We did not grow up in a vacuum and the same worship applies when Republics idolize those who created them. Just think, isn't Lenin's mumified body still out there in an exhibit? Don't we have in Mt. Rushmore USA the heads of former Presidents sculpted on a mountain?

Because Charles used to think he was made of glass and that if people came too near him he would break. Thus he insisted that iron rods should be inserted into his clothing to prevent him from breaking.

Le Comte de Chambord

He was the grandson of King of France Charles X.
Per 1830 he has been compelled to leave from France for exile.
Unfortunately, I know nothing about this successor of the French Kings. Somebody will tell to me about his? How he lived in exile whom he married, whether there are at children?

The Comte de Chambord is a glorious figure for French Legitimists, but certainly not for French Monarchists. Single-handedly, in his refusal to acknowledge le drapeau tricolore, the supremecy of the people in a 'democratic' state, or the legitimacy of the Orléans succession, he torpedoed any chance of the restoration of the Bourbon dynasty.

Henri, Duc de Bordeaux, Comte de Chambord, was born in 1820, the son of Charles, Duc de Berry (who was assassinated at the Paris Opera House in the year of his son's birth), and grandson of Charles X, King of France and Navarre. His mother was Princess Caroline, daughter of Francesco I, King of the Two Sicilies.

Charles X abdicated in 1830, was momentarily succeeded by his eldest son Louis (XIX), who was immediately followed by the Comte de Chambord as Henri (V).
As a consequence of the revolution of 1830 the throne passed from the direct line of the House of Bourbon to the Duke d'Orléans, who became Louis Philippe I, King of the French and Head of the House of Orléans.
On the death of Louis (XIX) in 1844 the Comte became Head of the Royal House of France.

The Comte de Chambord married Marie Therese (1817-1886), daughter of Francesco IV, Duke of Modena and Archduke of Austria.
He died in 1883. There were no children of the marriage.

One very interesting opinion exists about the grandson of King of France Charles X.
In 1870th years he made demands obviously unacceptable for the French society because he did not wish to borrow a throne in the country where there were so much revolts and revolutions?
Or I am not absolutely right?
