Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess o Montpensier, "Granddaughter o Fraunce" (29 Mey 1627 – 5 Aprile 1693) kent as La Grande Mademoiselle, wis the eldest daughter o Gaston d'Orléans, an his first wife Marie de Bourbon, Duchess o Montpensier. One o the greatest heiresses in history, she died unmairit an haed nae childer, leaving her vast fortune tae her cousin, Philippe o Fraunce. After a string o proposals frae various members of European ruling families, including Charles II o Ingland, Afonso VI o Portugal, an Charles Emmanuel II, Duke o Savoy, she eventually fell in love with the courtier, Antoine Nompar de Caumont an scandalised the coort o Fraunce when she asked Louis XIV for permission to marry him, as such a union was viewed as a mésalliance. She is best remembered for her role in the Fronde, her role in bringing the famous composer Lully tae the keeng's coort, an her Mémoires. Her neice Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici wis named in her honour.
