In 1843 Françoise de Bragance (1824-1898), daughter of Emperor Pedro I of Brazil, was married in Rio de Janeiro to François, Prince de Joinville (1818-1900), the third son of Louis-Philippe, Duc d’Orléans (1773-1850), King of the French.
Following the revolution of 1848 which ousted Louis-Philippe I, the Orléanist princes and dukes fled to England, where they settled at Claremont in Surrey. Many members of the family were visitors to Camille Silvy’s studio, while Silvy in turn visited Claremont, making some large format prints of a fête champêtre held by the Orléans family in exile.
See the following listings for other members of the family, including portraits of the princess's son, Pierre, and her daughter, Françoise.
