Princes Of Condé
The Most Serene House of Condé (named after Condé-en-Brie, now in the Aisne département) is a historical French house, a noble lineage of descent from a single ancestor. The name of the house was derived from the title Prince of Condé originally assumed circa 1557 by the French Protestant leader, Louis de Bourbon (1530–1569), uncle of King Henry IV of France, and borne by his male line descendants. It became extinct in 1830 when his eighth generation descendant Louis Henri Joseph de Bourbon died without surviving male issue.

What feast is toward in thine eternal cell,
That thou so many princes at a shot
So bloodily hast struck?”
