Emmanuel d'Orléans, Duke of Vendôme (Philippe Emmanuel Maximilien Marie Eudes; 18 January 1872 – 1 February 1931) was a French noble from the House of Orléans.


Emmanuel was born in Obermais, Meran. He was a son of Ferdinand Philippe d'Orléans, Duke of Alençon and his wife Duchess Sophie Charlotte in Bavaria. The latter was the famed duchesse d'Alençon who died in a fire at a charity bazaar in Paris on 4 May 1897. She had refused rescue attempts, insisting that the girls working with her at the bazaar be saved first.

He married on 12 February 1896 in Brussels with Princess Henriette of Belgium, daughter of Prince Philippe, Count of Flanders (1837–1905) and Princess Marie of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (1845–1912). King Albert I of Belgium was his brother-in-law.

They had four children:

  • Princess Marie Louise (31 December 1897–8 March 1973)
  • Princess Sophie (19 October 1898 - 9 October 1928)
  • Princess Geneviève (21 September 1901 - 1983)
  • Prince Charles Philippe (4 April 1905–10 March 1970)

The couple led a life of luxury and had many estates in Belgium, France and Switzerland. The tide changed after World War I, when their fortune diminished rapidly and they were forced to sell some of their properties. Philippe died unexpectedly in 1931 from heart failure after catching a cold, in Cannes, France. He is buried in the Chapelle Royale de Saint Louis, in Dreux.
