Princess Louise d'Orléans (19 July 1869 – 4 February 1952) was a French princess of the House of Orléans and a member of the royal family of Bavaria. Throughout her life Louise remained very close to her first cousin, the Austrian archduchess Marie Valerie of Habsburg-Lorraine.

Princess Louise was born at Bushy House, Teddington, England in 1869. She was a daughter of the French prince Ferdinand Philippe Marie d'Orléans, duc d'Alençon, and his wife Duchess Sophie Charlotte in Bavaria, herself a sister of Empress Elisabeth of Austria ("Sisi") and Queen Marie of the Two Sicilies, the heroine of Gaëte. Her paternal grandparents were Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Prince Louis Charles Philippe d'Orléans,"duc de Nemours, the second son of Louis-Philippe I, King of the French. Louise had a younger brother, Prince Emmanuel d'Orléans,"duc de Vendôme.

On 15 April 1891 she married her cousin the infante of Spain Alfons of Bavaria at Schloss Nymphenburg. He was the son of Prince Adalbert of Bavaria (1828–1875) and his wife the Spanish infanta Amelia de Bourbon (1834–1905).

They had two children:

 Joseph of Bavaria (1902-1990), prince of Bavaria, who never married;
 Elisabeth of Bavaria (1913-2005), princess of Bavaria, who first married Count Franz Josef von Kageneck (1915–1941), then Ernst Küstner (1920)

In Paris on 4 May 1897, her mother the famed duchesse d'Alençon died in a fire at a charity bazaar (the Bazar de la Charité); she had refused rescue attempts, insisting that the girls working with her at the bazaar be saved first.

Princess Louise of Bavaria died in 1952 in Munich.

    "I take my camera and sketchbook with me wherever I go and these have always been my three favorite cities... There is something about the architecture and the energy of New York that inspires everyone and for me the Art Deco spire of The Chrysler building says New York like nothing else! And ask anyone around the world the single building that represents London and it is always Big Ben. The great Victorian Gothic clock tower is still the heartbeat of London. Whenever I return to Paris that first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower never fails to excite me - it is the true joie de vivre of Paris and inspires me now as much as it did when I was a boy. It allows me to share personal souvenirs and memories with the viewer in a richly detailed and decorative style that I have developed over many years. I am fascinated by the way that cities reveal themselves to us gradually and I hope my work creates a similar sensation." I like to combine architectural images of each city in a layered, collaged technique. It allows me to share personal souvenirs and memories with the viewer in a richly detailed and decorative style that i have developed over many years. I am fascinated by the way that cities reveal themselves to us gradually and i hope my work creates a similar sensation." Print framed in a matte black moulding.
