Born at Paris on 6 December 1999, Princess Louise Marie Isabelle d'Orléans is the eldest daughter of Prince Charles-Louis, Duke of Chartres, and his wife Princess Iléana (née Manos; a cousin of Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia). Louise has an older brother, Prince Philippe (b.1998), and three younger siblings: Princess Hélène (b.2001), Prince Constantin (b.2003), and Princess Isabelle (b.2005). Princess Louise d'Orléans is the granddaughter of Prince Jacques, Duke of Orléans, and his wife Princess Gersende (née de Sabran-Pontevès); therefore, Louise is the great-granddaughter of the late Prince Henri, Count of Paris, and his wife Princess Isabelle (née Orléans e Bragança), as well as of Foulques de Sabran-Pontevès, Duc de Sabran, and his wife Roselyne (née Manca-Amat de Vallombrosa).
