Why he might be annoying
He avoided Italian military service by falsely claiming have a genital tumor.
He was rumored to have had business dealings with the Italian Mafia.
He was engaged to another woman when he got Caroline pregnant.
He and Caroline had to marry in a civil ceremony since the Roman Catholic Church had not recognized her divorce from Philippe Junot.

He often skipped official functions and appeared bored when he did show.
He had declared his intention to retire after the race that he died in.
Why he might not be annoying
He was easy on the eyes.
Caroline genuinely loved him and was devastated by his death.

His kids ended up in line for the throne after the Pope formally legitimized them following the annulment of Caroline's first marriage.
