Toledo, just a historical precision, about something you wrote in 2005...
The Valois were never "kicked-off" by the Bourbons. They didn't have male heirs, so the nex capetian branch, the Bourbons, were called to the throne, it is the French succession system. Now, by disappearing of all male lines but them, all capetians are Bourbons.

Napoleon's sword sold for $6.4 million - Yahoo! News
The article says the sword was sold by a family member to another family member. Does the Bonaparte family still have that kind of wealth?

Charles Napoleon didn't qualify in his area for the second round of general elections who took place yesterday. He was candidate and got ten per cent of the ballots.

Well, at least one of the Napoleons is well off, depending on who inherited the bulk of the late Prince Napoleon's fortune.
It could be one of the de Witts that purchased the sword. One of them owns a chateau.

The Princess Napoléon attended the 25th Anniversary of the French Heritage Society. The event was held at the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, owned by Comte Patrice de Vogüé.

Here is an article about the gathering with many pictures: 25th Anniversary of the French Heritage Society at Vaux-le-Vicomte | New York Social Diary

Sorry, I posted a photo from a Danish agency, I thought that by telling their name it would be OK.
As no direct link is avalable, you may go, to see the photo, on their homepage : http://www.polfoto.dk then write "Anjou" in the white place, then push the "sog" button.

The French are the only ones who have the power to decide who will be the rightful king or queen if the monarchy is restored.Napoleon was a dictator but he did created himself emperor and he is apart of history.

Right you are, Madam Roayle and Next Star, stating that Napoleon was just dictator, who decided to promoted himself to be an emperor. Indeed Napoleon I was the great military leader. He tried to legitimize his dynasty by seeking a proper wife from the established reigning houses. He somewhat succeeded in doing so by marrying Marie Loiuse of Austria, but he was not an royal. If the Bonapartes ruled for two or three centuries, they would have more solid basis for claiming the French throne.

Some people believe you have to be royal or marry to become royal well Napoleon did atleast one of things and still is regarded as a non royal.Because he was a military man who was a dictator created himself emperor.Napoleon is listed as emperor of the French in most of the information I looked up on him.

HIH Prince Charles Napoléon received the Prix de Rome 2008 during a ceremony in Amsterdam on tuesday,on occasion of the 200th anniversary of this prestigious Prize,founded by King Louis Napoléon in 1808.

HIH received a book on the eldest prize in the world of Art in the Kingdom.
The book was handed out by the State Secretary of European Affairs and Culture policy,Mr.Frans Timmermans.

The Prix de Rome ceased to exist in France in 1968,but is still a very prestigious Prize in the world of Art and architecture in The Netherlands.

Bonaparte-Wyse

Thomas Wyse from Waterford, Ireland married Letitia Bonaparte third daughter of Lucien ( brother of Napoleon I) in 1821 in Viterbo, Italy. The Waterford City museum has many items from their home at the Manor of Saint John in Waterford City.

I know this has been mention by another member but their are two claimants to the headship of the House of Bonaparte and they are Prince Charles Napoleon(father) and Prince Jean-Christophe(son) who by the way is very handsome.Why can't one be head of the house while the other is heir this sounds much more responsible to me instead of both father and son as claimants to the headship of the house.

Is this something to do with the will of the previous Prince Napoleon ? Why did the late Head of the House of Bonaparte decide to skip his son and pass the headship of the family to his grandson instead ?

The late Prince Louis Napoleon, who died in 1997, proclaimed in his will that his dinastycal heir was his grandson Jean Christophe instead of his son Charles; the reasons because Prince Louis disinherited his son were three: the pro-republican political opinions of Charles, Charles' divorce from Princess Beatrice of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (as the Imperial Family Statute of 1853 forbade the divorce for the members of the Imperial Family) and the second marriage of Charles, to Jeanne-Françoise Valliccioni, without Prince Louis' approval.

Thank you for your explanations re: my question. Well, Charles Bonapart (or is he Charles de Bonapart ?) broke their house laws and this was the reason for him not succeeding the headship, I understand. In that case, is it possible for his son to change the law and let his father succeed the post ?

It would be quite a twisted procedure, imo; it would be much easier to welcome Charles Napoléon's claims tout court; it would be much easier if Jean Christophe (granting that he wanted to do) simply acknowledged that his father Charles is the Head of the Imperial Family.
