Phillippe Louis Bourbon or King Phillippe was the first child of Princess Gabrielle and Henri Bourbon and was King of J Andres. His father was a Vinsalian noble. Shortly after the formation of the Labor party, he joined, becoming the first notable member[1]. Ernesto Espada, the revolutionary founder of the Espadas Rojas spoke frequently at Brown University where Phillippe was attending school.

Following the death of his second cousin, Richard, Earl of Danbury, Queen Katherine bestowed him with the title of Earl of Danbury. Later, after the conclusion of the Grand Mexican War and the death of his mother, he would be named the Prince of Newport[2].

In 2088, upon the death of his grandmother[3], Queen Katherine, Phillippe became King of J Andres. He was controversial from the beginning of his reign, when he announced the suspension of the Presidential elections that were to occur two months later, citing the grieving state of the nation. The following year he nationalized the Woonsocket Agricultural Sciences Laboratory[4], a JTech venture, in what was applauded by the Labor party, but incited outrage with the Anchor party.

In 2089, his grandfather ascended to the throne of Vinsalia, placing Phillippe as the heir apparent to another throne. Six months later, his grandfather perished in riots[5], and Phillippe became King of Vinsalia. On his coronation, he announced that the two nations would unite under the J Andres constitution on January 1, 2091, and that elections throughout both nations would take place in October of 2090[6].

In 2113, Phillippe was assassinated[7]. The Knights of Cromwell took credit for the attack, but it was believed to be funded by Libertarians who were displeased with the Bourbon monopoly on power within the nation. His eldest son, Orson Bourbon, took the throne, taking the name Phillippe II.
