French royalists celebrate the birth of twin sons to Louis XX, rightful King of France

by Gerald Warner

Heart-warming news for all legitimists and those who cherish the heritage of Christian Europe. The Duchess of Anjou, Princess Marie-Marguerite of France, wife of the Duke of Anjou – Louis XX, de jure King of France and Navarre – gave birth on Friday 28 May to twin sons. Prince Louis, the elder (by five minutes), is the 34th Dauphin of Viennois and Duc de Bourgogne; the younger, Prince Alphonse, is the Duc de Berry.
Their father, the Duc d’Anjou, is Head of the House of Bourbon and senior male heir of Louis XIV and of the ancient Capetian dynasty. These new-born Sons of France, the Dukes of Burgundy and Berry, are the 33rd generation from Hugh Capet, King of France from 987 to 996. The royal couple already have a young daughter, Princess Eugénie; but since the House Law of France is Salic, only male heirs can inherit the headship of the royal house and the claim to the French throne.
The Duke and Duchess of Anjou and their daughter were recently received in private audience by Pope Benedict XVI, when the head of the Bourbon dynasty wore the cordon and plaque of the Order of the Holy Ghost, of which he is hereditary Grand Master. This news will give immense pleasure to French legitimists and traditionalists who have never abandoned the principles of Throne and Altar and for whom Louis XX is the embodiment of the France of Saint Louis and his descendants, the Most Christian Kings.
These births occurred less than two weeks after the Duc d’Anjou took part in the commemoration ceremonies at Chartres for the fourth centenary of Henri IV, founder of the Bourbon dynasty of the Capetian line, who was assassinated in 1610. No royal house in Europe is imbued with more historical and regal lustre. Vive le Roi.

Such a nice looking couple. So much easier on the eyes than Charles and Camilla.  Cute kid too.

Beautiful lady.

Beautiful family.

Are they traditionalists? How do they support themselves financially considering they have no official status in France?

He lives in Spain.

He did work for a bank and studied economics, so I assume he has credentials and a job in that field of some sort.

French royalists (who are mostly Orleanist and have never fully accepted the Spanish Bourbons) probably will not accept the Legitimist pretender unless he were to raise his sons as French, which he does not appear to be doing.

It's a very disputed succession for sure. "French royalists"? I think you could probably fit them all into one room.
No other royals attended their wedding in the Dominican Republic and it is said Juan Carlos isn't too happy about the Duke's  claim to the French throne.

Definitely a good looking couple.  You can see the genetic effect of grabing all the best looking French women over many generations.  Even the kid is cute.

What happened to the British Royal Family I've no idea.  I think there must have been some monkey-business with horses somewhere along the line.

Still Prince William ain't a bad looking sort.
