  1. Father Andrew L. J. James, Ph.D. says:

    “Orlean” signals descent from Louis “Egalite,” who voted for the execution of his cousin, Louis, XVI. Though it smacks of the effects of “Original Sin,” we purists hold that: No descendant of Louis, Duke d’Orleans, CAN inherit the (non-existent) Throne of France.

    My great, great, great, great grandparents (Guillaume and Agnes Dessot Duduit) escaped the ax, and died in exile, in Scioto County, OH, where they lie buried in the “French Grant” cemetery. Ironically, Dr. Guillotine’s sister keeps them company. We haven’t forgotten them, nor have we forgotten “Louis Egalite’s: class treason.
