Le prince François d'Orléans est mort, il avait 56 ans
Prince François of Orléans, Count of Clermont (François Henri Louis Marie; born 7 February 1961), was the eldest son of Orleanist pretender to the French throne, Prince Henri, Count of Paris, Duke of France and his former wife Duchess Marie Therese of Württemberg.
He was the Dauphin of France, being the eldest son of the Orleanist pretender to the French throne. However, his mother suffered from toxoplasmosis during pregnancy, resulting in Prince François being mentally disabled, as is his younger sister, Princess Blanche.
His godparents were Henri, Count of Paris (paternal grandfather) and Duchess Rosa of Württemberg (maternal grandmother).
In 2006 their father named his second son, Prince Jean, Duke of Vendôme, as Dauphin of France.
On 31 December 2017 Prince Jean reported that after suffering a bad fall the previous day, François had died. Henri subsequently recognized Jean as "the Dauphin", father and son publicly embracing at the interment of François at the Chapelle royale de Dreux on 6 January 2018 following a funeral service attended by his parents, siblings and other members of family, as well as members of reigning and deposed dynasties.
