Marie Caroline looks much prettier in the hand-tinted photograph than in the painting by Jalabert.  Her expression is less severe.
Grand Duchess Alice of Hesse:  "Each year brings us nearer to the Wiedersehen [reunion with the dead], though it is sad to think how one's glass is running out, & how little good goes with it, compared to the numberless blessings we receive.  Time goes incredibly fast."

King Louis-Philippe's favorite vacation home was the Château d'Eu near Treport.

The Louis-Philippe Museum functions there and a worthy association is in place to keep the memory of the Orléans alive.

Dear All,

is any of you aware if the Orléans family's ADN has ever been tested? I'm particularly interested in Phillipe Égalité, his sister Louise Marie Thérèse Bathilde or Louis Phillipe I or his siblings's DNA.
If a profile of any of this persons is available this would be an important aid to the work I'm developing for sometime.
I know that the presumable blood of King Louis XVI has been tested and apparently it matches on the physical type of person we know he was but I would rather have the Orléans part of the family.
Many, many thanks,
Alexandre

Does anyone else besides me think this is Henri d'Orleans next to Arthur? The photo was taken c. 1888 and Henri was touring India in that year.

Sorry if this photo was already discussed, I tried to do a search of the threads.

In case anyone is interested, among the documentation preserved in the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family archive, which is preserved in the Austrian State Archives in Vienna, there's the correspondence of Clementine d'Orleans, daughter of King Louis Philippe and mother of King Ferdinand I of Bulgaria. She kept correspondence with several royals around Europe, including members of the Brazilian, French, Belgian, Portuguese, British and Bulgarian royal families.

Among the royals who regularly wrote to Clementine, there were Queen Maria II of Portugal, Queen Marie Amelie of Portugal, Queen Marie Henriette of Belgium, Crown Princess Stephanie of Austria, Princess Louise of Belgium, Alexandrine of Baden (Duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha), Ferdinand I of Bulgaria, his first wife Marie Louise of Bourbon-Parma, Princess Helena of the United Kingdom, etc.

There is a huge amount of letters from Queen Victoria to Clementine preserved in this archive. It seems that they were good friends since they wrote to each other during half a century.

Well, I am not surprised as they all belonged to one family. Everyone of the mentioned above was a member of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty, either by birth or by marriage. It doesn't matter that reigned in several countries, they were still family and it's natural that they corresponded since they all knew each other very well.

It would be interesting maybe to read published correspondence in some near future.
