The old House of Castellane
The House of Castellane, which dates back to the ninth century, is descended from the Counts of Provence.
The family tree reads like a who’s who of nobility and glitterati alike. From Victoire’s great-great-uncle Boniface (Boni) de Castellane, a notable dandy and husband of American railroad heiress Anna Gould, to her uncle Gilles Dufour, well known for his work for Karl Lagerfeld at Fendi and Chanel. And not to mention her paternal grandmother Sylvia Rodriguez de Rivas, Countess de Castilleja de Guzman, later to be known as Sylvia Hennessy with her marriage into the Hennessy family.
