Grandson of Louis XIV of France and his mistress Madame de Montespan, known from birth as the Duke of Penthièvre (1725-1793).

Document signed by the duc of Penthièvre, dated “Paris le 14 Fevrier 1738”. The Duc, who succeeded the Count of Toulouse (d. 1737) when just 12 years old, certifies that 

"... François Léon Hirt was in the house [of my father].. for fourteen years as master of his music, and that he has fulfilled its duties with applause and to the satisfaction of his master..." etc.

Interesting document for the history of music in France in the century of Bach and Mozart. Nice seal at the bottom of the page. Size is 8.2 x 12.7 inches, 1 page, folds, smudges, creases, in good condition (see scan provided).
