Princess Marie-Isabelle of Orléans (Seville, 21 September 1848 – Villamanrique de la Condesa 23 april 1919) was an infanta of Spain and Countess of Paris.

She was born in Seville to Antoine, Duke of Montpensier and Infanta Luisa Fernanda of Spain. Antoine was the youngest son of Louis-Philippe I, the last King of France, and Maria Amalia of the Two Sicilies. Infanta Luisa Fernanda was the daughter of Ferdinand VII of Spain and her grandfather's fourth wife Maria Christina of the Two Sicilies. All 4 of her grandparents and 7 of her 8 great-grandparents were members of the French Royal House of Bourbon.

On 30 May 1864, she married her cousin Philippe of Orléans, claimant to the French throne as Philippe VII. They had eight children:

Forced to leave France, Marie-Isabelle and her husband first lived in England, where her father Louis-Philippe I had lived after his abdication in 1848. In 1871 they were allowed to return to France, where they lived in the Hôtel Matignon in Paris and in the château d'Eu in Normandy.

In 1886, they were forced to leave France for a second time. In 1894, her husband died in exile at Stowe House in Buckinghamshire. Marie-Isabelle lived in the Randan château in France, and died in 1919 at her palace in Villamanrique de la Condesa, near Seville.
