Louis Charles de Montpensier (1755 - Present) is a Grandelumierian nobleman and is the eldest son of Henri François, Duc de Montpensier and his wife, Anne Genevieve de Vendome.
Reign of Louis XI
Childhood - Seigneur de Bourbon
Louis Charles de Montpensier was born on the 12th of August, 1758, to Henri François, who was then Duc de Bourbon and heir apparent to House Montpensier, as well as his wife, Anne Genevieve de Vendome. It was a particularly difficult labour, but in the end both mother and child were healthy and well.
The House celebrated for the birth, as his birth further cemented the house's line of succession. Louis received a favourable upbringing, being excellently educated by a hired tutor, Seigneur Antoine Louis de Roussillon. He was eventually baptized at age four, and named Louis Charles de Montpensier.
When he was 9, his grandfather, Duc Philippe de Montpensier, passed away after suffering from tuberculosis for many months. The whole house was hit hard by the loss, as the Duc had been known as the main figure in restoring their reputations and the reputation of the house as a whole. Now, Louis' father, Henri François, became Duc de Montpensier, making Louis the Duc de Bourbon. Louis continued his education without delay, as his father was determined that his son's education would not be interrupted for any reason. As Duc de Bourbon, however, his education was more comprehensive on noble politics as he was destined to some day rule the house.
