    Louis 

    Philippe 

Philippe d'Orléans

  • Agent Peacock: Unabashedly flamboyant, but a more than competant swordsman and dreams of going to war by his own admission.
  • Frontline General: Episode 4 ends with him leading his men straight into a line of cannons, musketeers and smoke. He seems to do quite well.
  • Historical-Domain Character
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: As is damn near every other man in the series.
  • Camp Gay: Although it's hard to tell how much of the campiness is just him, and how much of it is a result of him being emasculated all his life so he doesn't threaten his kingly brother
