    Birth and ancestry

    Philippe was born on 21 Sep­tem­ber 1640 at the Château de Saint-Ger­main-en-Laye in the town of Saint-Ger­main-en-Laye, France, the day be­fore his mother Anne’s 39th birth­day. As the son of a rul­ing king, the in­fant Philippe held the rank of a Fils de France (son of France). As such, he ranked im­me­di­ately be­hind his older brother Louis, Dauphin of France, who in­her­ited the French throne be­fore Philippe reached the age of three. From birth, Philippe was sec­ond in line to the thron...

    Le Petit Monsieur

    At the death of their fa­ther Louis XIII in May 1643, Philippe's older brother as­cended to the throne of France as Louis XIV. Their mother Queen Anne re­voked the late king's will to arrange for a power-shar­ing agree­ment with Car­di­nal Mazarin, who had been serv­ing as Louis XIII's chief min­is­ter. Anne was now in full con­trol of her chil­dren, some­thing she had been vying for since their birth. As the younger brother of the king, Philippe was ad­dressed as le Petit Monsieur, since his...

    When Philippe's uncle Gas­ton died in Feb­ru­ary 1660, the Duchy of Orléans re­verted to the crown, as he had no sur­viv­ing male issue. The duchy was one of the most highly re­garded ap­panages of the an­cien régime, and it was tra­di­tion­ally Philippe's birthright as the brother of the king. Thus, at the death of Gas­ton, Philippe him­self took ...

    Sexuality

    Dur­ing his child­hood, Queen Anne was ob­served to ad­dress Philippe by such nick­names as "my lit­tle girl" and en­cour­aged him to dress in fem­i­nine cloth­ing even as a young man – a habit he would re­tain all his life. A con­tem­po­rary would later call him the "sil­li­est woman who ever lived", a ref­er­ence to his effeminacy. As a young man, Philippe would dress up and at­tend balls and par­ties in fe­male at­tire, for ex­am­ple, dressed as a shepherdess. Mind­ful that Gas­ton's trea­...

    Marriage with Princess Henrietta of England

    After Louis XIV's mar­riage to Maria Theresa of Spain on 9 June 1660, Queen Anne turned her at­ten­tion to the mar­riage of Philippe. He had pre­vi­ously been en­cour­aged to court his older cousin the Duchess of Mont­pen­sier, el­dest daugh­ter of Gas­ton and his first wife Marie de Bour­bon. Known as Made­moi­selle at this time, she had an im­mense pri­vate for­tune and had pre­vi­ously re­jected suit­ors such as Charles II of Eng­land. Born in 1627, she was the sole heiress of her mother w...

    Search for a second bride

    Hen­ri­etta was mourned greatly at the court of France, but lit­tle by her hus­band, due to their strained re­la­tion­ship. Louis XIV him­self looked for a sec­ond wife for Philippe, who was eager to have a male heir to con­tinue the Orléans line. At­ten­tion again turned to the duchess of Mont­pen­sier, by now known as "la Grande Made­moi­selle". Louis him­self asked her if she wanted to fill "the va­cant place", but she po­litely de­clined the offer. Louis re­jected many other can­di­dates...

    Hav­ing al­ready es­tab­lished him­self as a suc­cess­ful mil­i­tary com­man­der dur­ing the War of De­vo­lu­tion in 1667, Philippe was eager to re­turn to the field. In 1676 and 1677 he took part in sieges in Flan­ders, and was pro­moted to the rank of Lieu­tenant gen­eral, which made him sec­ond-in-com­mand to Louis XIV him­self. The most im­pres...

    From the time of the vic­tory at Cas­sel until the 1690s, Philippe mainly con­cen­trated his en­er­gies on the ex­pan­sion of his es­tates, per­sonal for­tune, and art col­lec­tion, in­clud­ing the ren­o­va­tion of his res­i­dences, the Palais Royal and the Château de Saint-Cloud. The lat­ter was his favourite residence, the home of an ever-ex­pand...

    Upon the death of Made­moi­selle in 1693, Philippe ac­quired the duke­doms of Mont­pen­sier, Châteller­ault, Saint-Fargeau and Beaupréau. He also be­came prince of Joinville, count of Dour­dan, Mor­tain and Bar-sur-Seine and vis­count of Auge and Dom­front. In later life, Philippe was thus able to main­tain his lav­ish lifestyle eas­ily, and he fou...
