In 1838, while serving as a lieutenant, d'Orleans organized and commanded a landing party and took Mariano Arista prisoner personally, an act that won him widespread recognition and admiration, hailed as a hero upon his return to France.
In 1840, now promoted to a captain, d'Orleans was given the task of transporting the remains of Napoleon Bonaparte from St. Helena to France.
D'Orleans was a known strong critic of Francois Guizot and the ministry that he stood for.
Despite his impressive service with the French Navy, after the last abolishment of French monarchy, d'Orleans was exiled from France, and spent time in the United States and England. He returned under a false name in 1870 and served as a colonel under Louis d'Aurelle de Paladines. After recieving high praise for his bravery, he revealed his true identity and requested that he be allowed to serve France again. However, he was arrested and deported back to England.
