Enghien, Louis de Bourbon, Duc d' (1772-1804), son of Louis Conde, Duc de Bourbon, was born at Chantilly. At the Revolution he left France, and travelled in Europe. In 1792 he was in Flanders with the army of his grandfather, the Prince de Conde, and later commanded the vanguard in the war which ended in the peace of Luneville in 1801. He then lived at Baden in retirement, and married the Princesse de Rohan Rocheforte. When Cadoudal's conspiracy (q.v.) happened the Napoleonists suspected the Duke of Enghien of having visited Paris. The mysterious visitor was really Pichegru. By a violation of territory Napoleon captured him in Baden, and he was brought to Strasburg and then to Vincennes, where he was shot. There is some doubt as to how far Napoleon was personally responsible for his death.
