Berry, Charles Ferdinand, duke of
(1778-1820)
   ultraroyalist political figure
   Born at versailles, the second son of the count of Artois (the future charles x) and Marie-Thérèse of savoy, the duke of Berry left France at the beginning of the revolution of 1789 and served with Condé's royalist army (1792). He then went to England, where he married Ann Brown, with whom he had two daughters. Upon the restoration, he returned to France with his uncle King louis x III. But because his family did not recognize his marriage, he was married again, to princess Marie Caroline de Bourbon-Sicilie, with whom he had a daughter and a son, Count Henri de Cham-bord. An ultraroyalist, Berry was assassinated in 1820, and his death brought about the fall of the decazes government.
