The '''Dauphin''' was the title given the eldest son (crown prince or heir presumptive) of the [[King]] of [[France]] between 1349, when the [[County]] of
Dauphine, in southeast, France was sold by treaty to the King of France - and the abdication of [[Charles X]] in 1830. It was the French equivalent of the [[Prince of Wales]]. The name derives from the coat of arms – containing a dolphin (Fr. ''dauphin'') - of the original counts of the region.
