Léa Seydoux is a French actress. She is the daughter of Henri Seydoux Fornier de Clausonne, a businessperson, and Valérie Schlumberger, an actress and philanthropist. Her father is CEO of the wireless company Parrot.

Her parents are both of mixed French and Alsatian German ancestry. Her father also has around one quarter Spanish-Venezuelan ancestry.

Léa has a son with her partner, André Meyer.

Léa’s paternal grandfather is Jérôme Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne (the son of René Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne and Geneviève Schlumberger). Jérôme is the chairman of Pathé, a French major film production and distribution company. Léa is the grandniece of Nicolas Seydoux, the chairman of Gaumont Film Company, and Michel Seydoux, a cinema producer, who is chairman of the Lille-based football club Lille OSC. Léa’s great-grandfather René was the son of Jacques Seydoux and Mathilde Fornier de Clausonne. Léa’s great-grandmother Geneviève was the daughter of prominent businessman Marcel Henry Émile/Émil Schlumberger, who was born in Guebwiller, Alsace, and was of the Schlumberger oilfield company, and of Jeanne Laurans.

Léa’s paternal grandmother is Hélène/Elena Zumbiehl Anzola (the daughter of Renâe/René/Robert Zumbiehl and Fronilde Louiza Anzola Montaubán). Fronilde was the daughter of Eloy Anzola Añez, a general, and of Luisa Montaubán Zuloaga, and was of Spanish-Venezuelan descent. Luisa was the daughter of Edouard Montaubán Guinand, whose own father was born in Ossun, Midi-Pyrénées, France, and of Isabel Zuloaga Tovar, who was of Basque (from Azpeitía) and Spanish descent. Among her relatives are painter Martín Tovar y Tovar and engineer, businessperson, and philanthropist Ricardo Zuloaga.

Léa’s maternal grandfather was Rémy Schlumberger (the son of Maurice Charles Phillipe Schlumberger and Françoise Blanche Isabelle Monnier). Rémy was born in Versailles, Yvelines, France. Maurice was born in Guebwiller, Alsace, the son of Paul Schlumberger and Marguerite Pauline Ernestine de Witt. Françoise was the daughter of Andre Monnier and Henriette Thuret.

Léa’s maternal grandmother is Diane Vuillet (the daughter of Henry/Henri Vuillet and Henriette Mezzara). Henriette was the daughter of Charles Mezzara and Florence Koechlin; Florence was the daughter of Alfred Koechlin and Emma Schwartz.

Léa’s paternal great-great-great-grandparents, Paul Schlumberger and Marguerite Pauline Ernestine de Witt, were also Léa’s’s maternal great-great-grandparents. This makes Léa’s parents second cousins, once removed.

    I forgot where but I saw someone was descended from a man named Joseph Mary Heim, born November 25, 1868 in Strasbourg France, and died July 18, 1940 in Buffalo New York. I was wondering if he is French or German or even French Canadian. Would someone please find the geneology of him? His father is probably Andrew Heim.

    • tttyyy says:

      And once someone does find the geneology please reply back because I am interested to see his geneology.

          I was wondering if you could use your sources, to find out if shannon Elizabeth was really part Cherokee?

        • tttyyy says:

          Thank you for that but do you think that you could possibly find more about his parents, Andrew Heim, and Madeline Thebault.

          • tttyyy says:

            Also if you’re at it, another celeb was descended from a man named Gustav(e) Muerder/Mürder born October 17, 1875, in Schlat Germany and died January 28, 1918, but he was an illegitimate child. He took his mothers last name but not his fathers. His fathers name is probably Bartolomaus Haeck or Hossle. Bartolomaus is supposed to be of German royalty. Do you mind trying to find the geneology of Bartolomaus? Thank you in advance

          • tttyyy says:

            Could someone Please try to find the genealogies of Bartolomaus Hoessle/Haeck, Andrew Heim, and Madeline Thebault, because I’m really trying but it’s really hard. Everyone else is like really good at it, so could someone please help me???!!
