You have expressed my doubts better than I could. That is exactly my point. I am afraid though that the entire concept of "direct descendant" can be twisted by the fact that they all are in the line...

Ok, this way it is clearer to me, but when I said "same title" I was referring to the princely title. I am aware of the distinction between "royal princes" and "princes of the blood" but, this way...
