Openly eccentric in his lifestyle, he sometimes made his great brother nervous.

Philippe I, duc d’Orleans (1640-1701) known as “Monsieur”, brother of Louis XIV. His homosexual lifestyle was occasionally awkward for Louis. Philippe married twice and had three children. He was credited with the victory of the French at the battle of Kassel in 1677. His patronage of artists and musicians brought forward Molière and Lully. His family line would continue to play a role in French politics down to the 19th century. First Historical Figure of Philippe I.
