There are "pretenders" to the Mexican throne in existence today, but I believe they live in Australia (Have no idea why?).
Also, it's interesting that some Mexican nobility married into different European noble houses and some of their descendants are well known - descendants of Emperor Moctezuma are Counts in Spain and part of the Spanish peerage (?). Others such as Rainier III of Monaco and his offspring. His grandmother, I believe, was from an old Mexican family.
