Henri Eugène Philippe Louis d'Orléans, duc d'Aumale was born on 16 January 1822. As a youngster, her inherited a huge fortune from his godfather Louis II, Prince de Conde. He entered the army and distinguished himself when France invaded Algeria.

He was governor general of Algeria from late 1847 to early 1848. He went to England after 1848.

When Prussia invaded France in 1870, he offered to join the French army but his offer was refused. However he eventually returned to France and was a general by 1873.

He was expelled from France in 1880s with the rest of the Royal family, though he protested strongly, but was allowed return after he donated his large art collection to the Insitute of France. He died in Sicily on 7 May 1897.

He had married Princess Maria Carolina of the Two Siciles and only two of their four children reached adulthood:

   * Louis Philippe Marie Léopold, Prince de Condé (1845–1866)
   * François Louis d'Orléans, Duc de Guise (1854–1872)
