What a wonderful start. The Bourbons are such an intriguing family. They still own the eldest Bourbon castle in Bourbon-l'Archambault (now placed into the family foundation) and your pics above made me think about my visit to that castle. (Picture). I can see them walking there... ;-)

Are there any ancestors alive today? I worked for a beginning producer in the late 90's, he wore a ring with a family crest on it & he said it was from his mother's side. I pressured him about his history & he was very secretive. We traveled a lot and I knew he had come from serious money. The most I could get out of him was that he had roots in France, he was Roman Catholic & his mother had died. He would be in his middle to late 40's today. I've searched & searched for his name & I can't find a thing. I don't think he used his "real" name although the name I knew him by is listed on IMDB. Just in case somebody reading this can think of something or will want a little more, I can say his first name (which is probably his true first name) is Michael. He divides his time between LA & NY. (And Europe?) Any ideas? TIA.

This article, if you read it through, might answer your question. Prince Michael of Greece is King Constantine (Sofia of Spain's) 1st cousin. He descends from the Bourbon's through his mother and is an author.

A correction - Prince Michael is not a 1st cousin of Constantine and Sofia. He is the 1st cousin of their father, the late King Pavlos, and also a 1st cousin of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. Pavlos, Philip, and Michael are all grandchildren of King George I of Greece.

Also, Michael is 77 years old and he is Greek Orthodox.
