Summary
The Bourbon Dynasty is traced from Louis XIII, the father of both the Legitimist and Orleanist Lines - In section A, the full genealogy of the Orleanist branch descended from Louis Philippe, King of the French. Section B traces the legitimist line to its last Head, Henri V, Count of Chambord, who died in 1883, and collaterally the current legitimist line through the Spanish branch which twice diverges from the Spanish Crown. The Bourbon lines of Spain, and the Italian lines of the Two Sicilies and Parma, may be found in full in the respective volumes. Despite the French dynasty being non-regnant since 1848, there is a close connection to many other European royal houses, notably those of Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, Bulgaria, Roumania, Wurttemberg and Saxony, and, incongruously, Bonaparte, all detailed.
