There is a very interesting book dedicated to the Legitimist Pretenders : " Les princes caches ou histoire des pretendants legitimistes (1883-1989)" by Jacques Bernot. What's your opinion about this book?

If the Comte de Paris was to legally be declared as the King of France, would he be King Henry V or King Henry VII?

Henry VII. Henry V belongs to the grandson of Charles X who was king for 7 days until Louis Philippe was crowned, His father's claim would be recognized as Henry VI. If Jean succeeded him he would be Jean IV (his great-grandfather being pretender Jean III). Francois would be the III. Its like Louis XVIII, he wasn't XVII as his brother Louis XVI's son was considered to have been king even if a republic.

Countessmeout, This is very informative. Thus a Claimant to the Throne can be given a regnal number and still be counted as an uncrowned sovereign.

A claimant is counted if the successors who actually rule want to acknowledge him/her as having counted.

So, Louis-Charles, Dauphin of Francs, never ruled France a day of his life. His father, Louis XVI, was executed during the Revolution when Louis-Charles was 7 or 8, and Louis-Charles died 2 years later. He was never declared king, nor crowned, and he spent the entirety of those 2 years imprisoned. Yet, when his uncle came to the throne he was numbered Louis XVIII, retroactively acknowledging the reign of Louis-Charles (as Louis XVII).

Similar happened with the Napoleons; Napoleon II (son of Napoleon I) gains his numbering because his cousin chose to style himself as Napoleon III, despite Napoleon II never having actually reigned.

In England, the reign of Edward V isn't disputed despite his having never been crowned or ruled really (having spent most of his short reign imprisoned by the future Richard III), likely because he's acknowledged as having been a legitimate monarch by the numbering of Edward VI. Matilda of England and Margaret of Scotland both had longer reigns than him, yet have disputed statues as having been Queens - I would argue in part because there wasn't ever a Matilda II or Margaret II that followed them.

Count Henri is very firm about French monarchial tradition. It is sad when family members squabble over inheritance.

Will we see in the future two Orleanist Pretenders?

No.

The Duke of Vendome is the legal guardian of the Count of Clermont.

After the death of the Count of Paris, obviously whatever Prince Jean desires is what will take place.

Yes. In May Prince Henri announced that his son Prince Francois, by right of male primogeniture, is his Heir. Because of his disability, the Prince's brother Prince Jean would act as a Regent, assisted by a regency council.

Two months later Prince Jean waves with a document from his grandfather, whom not only tried to rule beyond his grave but also interferes in the principle that the Heir is by order of male primogeniture in a legitime and approved marriage. So Prince Jean does not wish to be a Regent for his brother: he wants to bypass his brother and become the head himself.

So yes: there will be two different heads, when this silly feud continues, but de facto Prince Jean will always be the boss, in both scenarios.

I am following Henri here. He acknowledges that his eldest son is not able to act as the head of the House. Therefore a regency will be installed: his son, the firstborn prince of the blood royal, is respected but at the same time there is an eye for reality. Probably Prince Francois himself will have no clue, but it is a chique solution.

It is almost useless as a debate but it's another proof that Prince Henri and Prince Jean are not very close.

Yes, but also no.

Some Orleanists will likely support François as the pretender, but given his disabilities it's unlikely he'll be presenting himself as such. François is unmarried and has no children, so when he passes his claim will go to Jean or his heirs (Jean has 4 children, 2 of them sons who could "inherit").

The Duke of Orleans is without any doubt very respected in the orleanist circles.

You mean Prince Jacques, who is married with Gersende, daughter of the Duc de Sabran-Pontevès?

I have no doubt he is a respected gentleman under orléanists but what do you mean? Has Prince Jacques made remarkable achievements or so?

Ofcourse he his.But other then that the Orléons branch has always consisted of troublemakers,treators and backward scemes throughout history while the Bourbons were on the Throne..and then the claims to and fights over a non-existent Throne,in their case.... is beyond the rediculous and sooo out of touch of time and circumstances indeed.It is history repeated to a fault...

Other than that,it is a rainy day with dry spells..

I agree that most likely Prince François won't personally are any claim, but I wonder if instead the other two appointed members of the "regency council" will support his claim on his behalf against Prince Jean. This would indeed start another feud.
