Marine Le Pen looks set to shortly benefit from another high-ranking endorsement from the right, that of former parliamentary deputy and respected author, Philippe de Villiers.

The upcoming endorsement, expected to be formalized within days, will aide Le Pen in wooing a contingent of the seven million plus voters who had supported establishment conservative, François Fillon, in last week’s first round of voting.

A large number of Fillon’s supporters were politically mobilized Catholics, convinced by his stance on social issues such as gay marriage and surrogacy, hot button issues in what is still, in certain respects, a culturally conservative country.

Hailing from an aristocratic family in France’s Vendée region, the former deputy of both the French and European parliaments himself ran for president in 1995 and 2007 on a pro-sovereignty, eurosceptic ticket. Internationally, de Villiers is better known as an entrepreneur and founder of the historically themed ‘Puy du Fou’, a hugely popular theme park set around the ruins of the Château du Puy in Western France.

The park, which attracts 2.2 million visitors a year, made headlines in 2016 when it purchased the signet ring worn by Jeanne d’Arc – Joan of Ark – at auction in London for $410,000. The historic and religious relic, symbolic to French traditionalists, was received in the park last May to great fanfare almost six centuries after falling into the hands of the saint’s English captors. It remains within the Château at Puy du Fou.

‘’Today our country is in mortal danger, gravely threatened in terms of her identity and her sovereignty,’’ de Villiers, a critic of Islamic expansion and mass immigration, warned in an interview with Le Figaro in late March. In the same interview, he praised Le Pen’s ‘’presidential stature.’’ Sources close to de Villiers have hinted that an official endorsement would be forthcoming ‘’very rapidly.’’

Such an endorsement would come at a time when much of the mainstream establishment are throwing their weight behind ultra-liberal, open borders candidate, Emmanuel Macron, with a plethora of powerful political figures – and everything from masonic lodges to washed-up celebrities – publicly calling for a united front to keep Le Pen from power.
