The Mysterious Origins of the Duc de Royan

An image believed to be of Jérôme Trimouille. Since 2019, there is a French citizen named Jérôme Trimouille who now presents himself as the "Duc de Royan," owing to his apparent descent from the noble La Trémoille family. As Duc de Royan, Jérôme Trimouille has created an official website (created in late 2020), a verified Facebook page (created in January 2020), a verified Twitter account (created in December 2019), and a verified Instagram account (in addition to Snapchat and Tik Tok accounts). The Duc de Royan mostly communicates about events in reigning European royal families and sometimes weighs in on current events in France. According to an online genealogy of the La Trémoille family, Jérôme Trimouille was born on 2 January 1972 as the eldest son of Jean Claude Arthur Andre Trimouille (Boynes 5 November 1947-Corbeil-Essonnes 17 February 2015) and Martine Deniau (b.1955). Jérôme's paternal grandparents were Andre Georges Arthur Trimouille (Boynes 5 February 1917-Gironville-sur-Essonne 9 April 1983) and Lucienne Amiard (d.2014). Jérôme Trimouille is married to Sandra Leblanc (b.1976). The couple have two sons. As one can see by referring the above genealogy, the members of the current Trimouille family appear to hold numerous noble titles. Going on the information presented online, Jérôme himself is apparently the holder of the following titles: "Prince de Talmont & de Tarente, duc de Royan, seigneur de Hanches, duc de La Trémoïlle." On his website, Jérôme Trimouille includes this information about how to address a member of his family: How do you address a member of the ducal family? The custom and the traditions are that to address a man, a member of the ducal family, it is necessary either to use Monseigneur or Your Highness and for a woman, a member of the ducal family, Madame or Your Highness. Source: À propos According to his website, Jérôme Trimouille has appointed ambassadors to Armenia, Belgium, Bolivia, India, Italy and the Vatican, Mexico, and Spain. There is no information whatsoever on the role of these ambassadors or whether they have any accreditation to the governments of the countries where they apparently have a diplomatic mission. A ducal secretariat also exists: the apparent Duc de Royan has a cultural affairs advisor, an economic advisor, and a political advisor.  Jérôme Trimouille first appeared in the French press in May 2019. He was interviewed by La Nouvelle République on 2 May 2019 for an article concerning the château de Thouars. Although he had never visited the château, Jérôme stated that he was in favour of it being opened to the public. In the article, entitled Jérôme Trimouille: "Je me sens Thouarsais de coeur", he was presented as "a descendant of the Dukes de La Trémoille and holders of their titles." When asked by the author of the article as the whether the succession of the Trimouille family was secure, Jérôme replied: "Absolutely. This unique link between the city of Thouars and my family is not about to break since my sons Kévin (born in 1997) hereditary prince de La Trémoille and Marvin (born in 2001) prince of Naples, already ensure the future of the House de La Trémoille." In an earlier brief snippet from La Nouvelle République on 1 May 2019, it was written of Jérôme that: "Descendant de la branche cadette, dite des « marquis de Royan et comte d’Olonne », Jérôme Trimouille est donc aujourd’hui titulaire des titres de prince de Talmont et Tarente, duc de La Trémoïlle, de Thouars, de Noirmoutier et de Taillebourg, marquis de Royan et d’Espinay, baron de Sully, comte de Laval, de Guînes et de Montfort, ainsi que prétendant au trône du royaume de Naples." On 6 May 2019, the Société d'Histoire, d'Archéologie & des Arts du Pays Thouarsais (Shaapt) issued the following statement after becoming aware of Jérome Trimouille's interview on 2 May:Last week, the local Thouars press published an interview with Monsieur Jérôme Trimouille, a seventh generation descendant of the La Trémoïlle family. Monsieur Trimouille, evoking the future of the château de Thouars, declared himself in these articles to be the Duc de Thouars, bearer of the titles attributed to his ancestors as well as the style of royal highness. Without in any way questioning the descent of Monsieur Trimouille from the family of the lords of Thouars, to a distant degree, the SHAAPT recalls, first of all, that, according to the rules of the French nobility, titles can only be transmitted from father to son. This is how many ducal families have died out over time, due to a lack of descent: families from Montmorency, Richelieu, Aumont, etc. Thus, Louis Jean-Marie de la Trémoïlle, who died in 1933, without posterity at the age of 23 in a fire in England, remains the last Duke de la Trémoïlle. In 1910, the young duke's sister, Charlotte, married a Belgian aristocrat, Henri Florent de Ligne. In 1934, the King of the Belgians, Leopold III, authorized their son, Jean Charles Lamoral, Prince de Ligne, to take the name of his late uncle by appending it to his own surname and thus to perpetuate the name of La Trémoille. But the members of the de Ligne de La Trémoïlle family will never be able to bear the titles of their French ancestors, despite being the direct descendants of the last Duke of Trémoïlle. As for the royal highness predicate, it can only be worn by members of royal families. While noble titles no longer have legal status in France, they are however governed by a specific code and, to be regular, must be confirmed by the Seal of the Ministry of Justice. No one can therefore afford to appropriate them illegitimately.Source: Société d'Histoire, d'Archéologie & des Arts du Pays Thouarsais - Shaapt "First Ranking Duke of France Perishes as Mansion Blazes," The Wichita Eagle, 10 December 1933. The last Duc de La Trémoille, Louis-Jean-Marie de La Trémoille, was tragically killed during a fire at a country house in Whitchurch, Hampshire, England, on 9 December 1933. Louis was twenty-three years-old. With his death, according to most published sources, the La Trémoille family became extinct in the male line. After the passing of the last duke, the descendants of his sister Charlotte de La Trémoille (1892-1971) and her husband Prince Henri de Ligne (1881-1967) were authorised by the King of Belgium to bear the title Prince(ss) de Ligne de La Trémoille. Furthermore, successive issues of the Almanach de Gotha make no mention of a junior branch of the La Trémoille family.  The 1934 Almanach de Gotha entry on the La Trémoïle family.

The Duke of Kent marries "in elaborate rite"

Embed from Getty ImagesJune 8, 1961 The Duke of Kent, eighth in the line of succession to the British throne, was married today to Miss Katharine Worsley, the daughter of a Yorkshire baronet, reports the New York Times. The marriage took place at York Minster and was conducted by the Archbishop of York.  Queen Elizabeth II and other Royal Family members journeyed north to attend the ceremony, which was televised.  The more than 2,000 guests included twenty-four members of European royal families, members of the Cabinet, and Members of the Parliament.  This was the first royal wedding at York Minster in 633 years. The streets were filled with "proud Yorkshiremen" as the one of their own married into the royal family.  The "golden-haired" bride is the daughter of Sir William Worsley, Lord Lieutenant of the North Riding.  The Worsley family has lived at Hovingham Hall for more than 500 years. The "solemn young bride and her father stepped stiffly through the west door of the cathedral" and were greeted "with a fanfare by trumpeters of the Royal Scots  Greys."   The Duke is a member of this regiment. The bride and her father "moved slowly to the altar, her long white train sweeping behind her."  She was attended by eight little girls, including ten-year-old Princess Anne, the Queen's daughter, and three little page boys, all dressed in white. The bride's gown was designed by John Cavanagh.  The Times of London described the gown as "a statuesque and simple dress. It was of white silk gauze, with a specially woven design that shimmered lightly." Embed from Getty Images  The Duke of Kent, 25, dressed in the ceremonial uniform of the Royal Scots Greys, waited for his bride at the altar.  His best man was his younger brother, Prince Michael.   The bride, who is three years older than the Duke, chose the wedding ceremony from the Church of England's 1928 Prayer book, "instead of the original 1662 version."   The newer version omits the word obey in the bride's pledge, but "it was used by the Archbishop at her request." After the Duke placed a plain gold band on Katharine's finger, and the vows were exchanged, the couple "moved to the altar and knelt there while the golden-robed Archbishop bent over them, giving them his address in a low voice that only the wedding couple could hear." Embed from Getty Images  The newlyweds emerged from the cathedral and passed under "an arch of swords held by noncommissioned officers from Royal Scots Greys.  The crowds cheered as the Duke and his new Duchess got into the car for the twenty-three-mile drive to Hovingham Hall "for the huge wedding reception." Later today, the newlyweds will leave for Scotland to start their honeymoon at Birkhall, the Queen Mother's residence in Scotland. The Members of the Royal family who attended the wedding included the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, and Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Princess Royal, accompanied by the Earl and Countess of Harewood and the Hon. Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Lascelles, the Duchess of Kent, accompanied by Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael of Kent.  The Court Circular did not list the foreign royals who attended the wedding. In its coverage of the wedding, the Times noted that this was a Yorkshire wedding.  The people "who lined the streets to cheer in the tentative sunlight were the people of the city and of the East, West, and York Ridings.  In London, it would have been certain that at least a tenth of them would be Americans."

The newest QVD Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

ICYMI:   Queen Elizabeth II's 11th great-grandchild will be known as Lili.   She is eighth in line to the throne. As the daughter of a duke, she bears the courtesy title Lady before her Christian name but her parents have chosen to eschew the ducal courtesy titles. In her book, The Little Princesses,  Marion Crawford wrote: "From the time of my arrival, Lilibet came down to me.  She had given herself this name when she found 'Elizabeth' rather difficult to get round, and it had stuck to her ever since."
