Notes:
It is possible that there were two distinct 'Duchesse d'Orléans', of which the earlier was purple and a synonym of 'Lustre d'église'. 'Duchesse d'Orléans' in gardens and commerce is a different Rose than that in the early drawings.
Sangerhausen lists a light pink Gallica called Lustre d'Englise.
