Prince François of Orléans, Count of Clermont (François Henri Louis Marie; born 7 February 1961), is the eldest son of Orleanist pretender to the French throne, Prince Henri, Count of Paris, Duke of France and his former wife Duchess Marie Therese of Württemberg.

He was the Dauphin of France, being the eldest son of the Orleanist pretender to the French throne. However, his mother suffered from toxoplasmosis during pregnancy, resulting in Prince François being mentally disabled, as is his younger sister, Princess Blanche.[1]

His godparents were Henri, Count of Paris (paternal grandfather) and Duchess Rosa of Württemberg (maternal grandmother).

In 2006 their father named his second son, Prince Jean, Duke of Vendôme, as Dauphin of France.
