Vincent de Bourbon, Count of Guingamp (Vincent Marie Louis; 22 June 1750 – 14 March 1752) was a French Count and son of the wealthy Louis Jean Marie de Bourbon, grand son Louis XIV of France and Madame de Montespan.


Born at the Hôtel de Toulouse, the Count of Guingamp was the fourth child born to his parents. An older brother Louis Marie died in 1749 aged 3. His oldest surviving brother was the prince de Lamballe, future husband of Marie Thérèse Louise de Savoie. Vincents other brother was the Duke of Châteauvillain.[1]

He was a double descendant of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan. His father was the only legitimate child of Louis Alexandre de Bourbon, Count of Toulouse and youngest of Louis and La Montespan. His mother was a daughter of Françoise Marie de Bourbon, Mademoiselle de Blois, and Louis and La Montespan's youngest daughter. Louis Alexandre and Françoise Marie grew up together.

Vincent died at the Palace of Versailles in the Apartments of his mother at Versailles, present rooms named after Madame Adélaïde[2][3]

Years after his death his posthumous sister, Louise Marie Adélaïde de Bourbon (wife of the future Philippe Égalité) moved him to the Chapelle royale de Dreux.
