Duchess of Berry. Name variations: Caroline Ferdinande Louise of Naples; Caroline of Naples; Marie Caroline Ferdinande Louise of Naples; Maria Carolina de Bourbon; Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile; duchesse de Berry; princess of the Two Sicilies. Born Marie Caroline Ferdinande Louise on November 5, 1798; died on April 17, 1870; daughter of Francis I, king of Two Sicilies (r. 1825–1830) and Maria Clementina of Austria (1777–1801); married Charles Ferdinand (1778–1820), duke of Berry (second son of Charles X, king of France); married Ettore, count Lucchesi-Palli, in 1831; children: (first marriage) Louise of Bourbon-Berry (1819–1864), duchess of Parma; Henry V (1820–1883), duke of Bordeaux and count of Chambord (who married Therese [1817–1886]); (second marriage) Clementina de Campofranco (b. 1835).

Charles Ferdinand, son of Charles X, king of France, lived in exile in England from 1789 to 1814 where he married Anna Brown (d. 1876) in 1806. When Brown's family refused to acknowledge the marriage, he returned to France in 1814 and married Caroline of Naples two years later. Charles Ferdinand was assassinated in Paris on February 13, 1820. In 1832, Caroline promoted an unsuccessful attempt at revolution in favor of her son Henry, count of Chambord, in 1832. Henry was proclaimed Henry V, king of France, by Legitimists but was compelled to live in exile in Lower Austria.

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.
