Benoît II, nephew of Henri II Le Moyne de Bienville was the child of Guenaëlle Le Moyne de Bienville and Henri VI Bourbon, son of Henry V, claimant to the French throne.

Benoît II was le dauphin until the death of his father, but was the Prince-in-exile at the death of his uncle Henri II Le Moyne de Bienville, thus becoming a Prince and then King.

Because of his parentage, Benoît and his descendants are also claimant to the throne of France and Louisianne, should either one, or both be restored.

While Benoît had hoped his first son, Benoît III would take the throne at his death, this was not to be, as Benoît perished of pneumonia in 1881.

His second son, Antoine became Prince-in-exile at his death.
