    Philippe was the son of Philippe I, Duc d'Orléans and Elizabeth Charlotte of the Palatinate. In 1692, he married his first cousin, Françoise Marie de Bourbon who was the youngest legitimate daughter of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan. While considered ill-suited, the couple remained together and conceived eight children. Upon the coronation of his uncle's five year old great-grandson, Louis XV, in 1715, Philippe acted as Régent until the monarch came of age in 1723. Philippe died in December that year at the Palace of Versailles, aged forty-nine.
