Louis III de Bourbon, (10 November 1668 - 4 March 1710) was a Prince of the blood at the French court of Louis XIV. Styled as the Duke of Bourbon from birth, he succeeded his father as Prince of Condé in 1709.[1] He was commonly called Monsieur le Duc.[1] However, he was known by the lesser ducal title. He was prince for less than a year. As a member of the reigning House of Bourbon, he was a prince du sang. He was governor of Burgundy from 1709–1710.[2] He was forced to marry an illegitimate daughter of Louis XIV.
