When his father, Benoît I Le Moyne de Bienville was ensconced as the Prince-in-exile, Philobert I changed his name from Philippe to a name he felt was more regal. In his desire to be more royal, he caused his children to study their heritage and tried to have them learn the Parisian dialect of Francien.
Members of the Bourbon-Anjou delegation saw this as aspirations to grandeur that he didn't necessarily have, but Philobert persisted and lived up to his regal ancestry, developing a banking empire that greatly increased the family fortunes for a time.
