He was the son of Tekla Justina Krzyzanovska and Mikolaj (Nicolas) Chopin. He never married nor had children. After his failed engagement to Polish artist Maria Wodzińska in 1836, he began a much publicized romantic affair with French novelist and memoirist George Sand.

Prior to his death, he requested that when he died, his heart be taken out of his body and buried separately because he feared being buried alive.
