Anne-Aymone Giscard d'Estaing, born Anne-Aymone Marie Josèphe Christiane Sauvage de Brantès on 10 April 1933 in Paris), is the wife of former President of France Valéry Giscard d'Estaing.[1]


Though she bears no noble title, she is a daughter of François Marie Joseph Abel Henri Sauvage, comte de Brantès, who died in Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp on 8 May 1944, and his wife, the former Princess Aymone Marie Sylvie Renée de Faucigny-Lucinge et Coligny, a great-great-granddaughter of Charles Ferdinand, duc de Berry by his mistress Amy Brown. She also is a great-niece of the Cuban-born French designer and architect José Emilio Terry y Dorticos and the aunt of Roger Marie Joseph Henri Sauvage de Brantès, the present Marquis de Brantès.
