Counts of Maine[edit]

Dukes of Maine (ducs du Maine)[edit]

In 1673, the title began to be used again. It was revived by Louis XIV for his first illegitimate son by his infamous mistress, Françoise-Athénaïs, marquise de Montespan. He used it until his death and also founded the semi-royal house of Bourbon du Maine, named after his title.
