Nemours, Louis Charles Philippe Raphaël d'Orléans, duc de

Louis Charles Philippe Raphaël d'Orléans Nemours, duc de (lwē shärl fēlēp´ räfäĕl´ dôrlāäN´ dük də nəmōōr´), 1814–96, French prince; second son of King Louis Philippe. In 1831 he was offered the throne of Belgium, but Louis Philippe declined for him in order to avoid antagonizing Great Britain. He fought in Algeria and was active (1842–48) in the chamber of peers. After the February Revolution of 1848 he lived in England. He helped to effect a rapprochement between the legitimist pretender, the comte de Chambord, and the Orleanist pretender, his nephew Louis Philippe Albert d'Orléans. He returned to France in 1871.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
