The younger brother who became the model of duplicity.

Gaston, Duc d’Orlèans (1608-1660), younger brother of Louis XIII, took part in many of the conspiracies of the nobles against Louis XIII’s minister Cardinal Richelieu, and against his own brother. A constant irritant to the crown with a duplicitous personality, he was renowned for constantly changing sides to save his own skin.
