So here you can see a close up depicting the duke, which was produced by the French sculptor Leo Roussel who was born in 1868 and passed away in 1943, and this particular statue was positioned on the facade of The Louvre back in 1921.
Duc d'Aumale inscription on statue pedestal
Officially named Henri Eugene Philippe Louis d'Orleans, he was the fifth son of King Louis Philippe I born in January 1822 in the Palais Royal in Paris only a couple of minutes walk from this statue, yet he was always referred to as Duc d'Aumale, which in English translates to the title of Duke of Aumale, and hence what is inscribed on the plaque.

Inheriting a large fortunate at the early age of eight, Duc d'Aumale eventually went into the army, and although married with children they passed away before him, so having no heirs, within his will he bequeathed the fabulous Chateau de Chantilly to the state providing it was to be turned into a museum, which people can still visit today.
