Descendant of Louis XIV Sues Jeff Koons

Prince Charles-Emmanuel de Bourbon-Parme, who alleges to be a direct descendant of Louis XIV, has initiated a legal battle against Jeff Koons in what he describes as a “mercenary” and “pornographic” stain on his illustrious family’s honour.

According to The Guardian, Bourbon-Parme “says the exhibition, which is due to close in just over a week, is an attack on the ‘right immemorial’ of all human beings not to see their ancestors disrespected. Undeterred by an initial ruling this week from a judge in Versailles which rejected his plea to ban the installation, De Bourbon-Parme vowed yesterday to take his mission to the council of state, France’s highest administrative court.”
