Notes
Louis Jean Marie de Bourbon, duc de Penthievre(1725-March 4, 1793) was the son of Louis-Alexandre de Bourbon, Comte de Toulouse. He succeeded his father's posts, among others in that of grand admiral of France. He served under Marshal de Noailles, and fought brillantly at Dettingen(1743) and Fontenoy(1745). he then lived in retreat at Rambouillet and Sceaux, protecting men of letters, and particularly poet Florian, and dispensing charity. He lost his son, the prince of Lamballe, in 1768, and survived his daughter-in-law, louise Marie Therese of Savoy-Carigan, the friend of Marie Antoinette, who was killed by the populace on Septemer 3, 1792. His daughter and heiress, Louise Marie Adelaide de Bourbon, married Phillipe9Egalite), duke of Orleans. A street in Paris near the Avenue de Champs Elysees is named for the Duc de Penthievre. No. 11 rue de Penthievre, an hotel particulier of the Empire period with a large graden, is believed to have once been the residence of de Penthievre's grandson Louis-Phillipe of France in his youth. In the late 19th century, No. 11 housed the American Embassy. This address became famous in the early 20th century as the couture salon of the British-based designer "Lucile", Lucy, lady Duff-Gordon.
