Prince Charles Louis, Duke of Chartres (Charles Louis Henri Foulques Benoît Elzéar Jean Marie; born on 28 July 1972) is the son of Prince Jacques, Duke of Orléans and Gersende de Sabran-Pontèves.


Prince Charles Louis of Orléans was born in Neuilly, outside Paris, a member of the house of Orléans, cadet branch of the now extinct Bourbons of France. As such he holds the hereditary title of "Prince of Orléans".

His paternal grandfather was the late Henri, Count of Paris who was the Orleanist claimant to the French Throne with the title Henri VI. As such, Charles-Louis would have the status of Petit-Fils de France with the style of Royal Highness. As his father is known as the duke of Orléans, Charles Louis is known as the duke of Chartres, the title traditionally given to the eldest son of the duke of Orléans. He is the middle of three children, his elder sister being Princess Diane, Viscountess of Noailles and his younger brother Prince Foulques, Duke of Aumale.


He married Iléana Manos, daughter of Konstantinos Manos (1937-) and Sybilla Chrissoveloni (1942-), on 21 June 1997 in Paris, France, in a civil marriage and were remarried in a religious ceremony on 28 June 1997 in Skiathos. Ileana Manos [1] descends from the Sutzu Phanariot rulers of Principality of Valachia and from Constantinoplean, Greek, Romanian and Vlach noble families such as Manos, Caragea, Argyropoulos, Soutzos, Ruzet-Roznoveanu, Mavrocordatos, Mavromichalis beis of Mani peninsula, Benakis of Kalamata, Cantacuzino; Ghika; Bogdan-Mushat, monarchs of Moldavia, Calmasul (Callimachi) and Racovitza. Ileana is granddaughter of a first cousin of Princess Aspasia Manos, consort of king Alexander of Greece, and grandmother of the current Alexander, Crown Prince of Yugoslavia. The couple have five children.
