The baptism was not done by the Archbishop Marcel Lefèbvre, whom founded the priestly fraternity St Pie X (SSPX) but by his cousin Charles-Joseph Cardinal Lefèbvre, Archbishop of Bourges.

The flag on the background looks like a military banner, possibly used in one of the battles of the Carlist Wars.

Video of the baptism at the Château de Lignières. Prince Carlos Hugo -the father- had the French nationality at that moment. He only became a Spanish citizen in 1978, so this fits in the thread of French royals.

Are there any male 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.

The descendants of the Bourbons are called Les Capétiens (from La Maison capétienne) and there are a LOT still existing. So your question: "Are there still male ancestors alive today?"..... phew..... so many!

These are the still existing main branches of the House of Capet with their current heads:

Bourbon-Busset
(1438)
--> House of Bourbon-Busset (1438) - Charles de Bourbon, Comte de Busset (*1945)
----> House of Bourbon-Châlus (1849) - Philippe de Bourbon, Comte de Châlus (*1942)

Bragança (1442)
--> House of Portugal (1640) - Duarte Pio de Bragança, Duke of Bragança (*1945)

Cadaval (1645)
--> House of Cadaval (1645) - Diana Álvares Pereira de Melo, Duchess of Cadaval (*1978)

Orléans (1661)
--> House of Orléans (1661) - Henri d'Orléans, Comte de Paris (*1933)
----> House of Orléans-Bragança (1814) - headship disputed
-------> House of Brazil (1822) - headship disputed
----> House of Orléans-Galliera (1824) - Alfonso de Orleans-Borbón y Ferrara-Pignatelli, Duke of Galliera (*1968)

Anjou (1700)
--> House of Bourbon-Anjou (1700) - Luis Alfonso de Borbón y Martínez Bordiú (*1974)
----> House of Spain (1933) - Felipe de Borbón y Grecia, King of Spain (*1968)
--> House of Bourbon-Parma (1748) - Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme, Duke of Parma (*1970)
----> House of Luxembourg (1964) - Prince Henri de Nassau, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg (*1955)
--> House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1751) - headship disputed
--> House of Bourbon-Sevilla (1823) - Francisco de Borbón y Escasany (*1967)

The Headship of the Imperial House of Brazil is not disputed since Prince Pedro Gastão's death, in 2007. His sons declared themselves republicans and even his nephew, the somewhat popular Prince João Henrique, said the entire Family now recognizes Prince Luiz as the rightful heir.

Besides, Prince Luiz, his siblings, nephews and nieces are the ones who advocate for the restoration of the monarchy, while the descendants of Prince Pedro Gastão couldn't care less. No to mention that the vast majority of the monarchists supports Prince Luiz's claims.

The dispute in the House Bourbon-Two Sicilies is not thát very complicated. I give it a try: in 1960 the last undisputed Head of the House died without surviving male issue. The most senior males related to the last undisputed claimant in 1960 were:

1
- Prince Carlo (1870-1949)
Brother of the last Duke. In 1960 he was already dead. One son.

2 - Prince Alfonso (1901-1964)
The son to Nr 1. Nephew of the last Duke.

3 - Prince Gennaro (1882-1944)
Brother to the last Duke. In 1960 he was already dead. No issue.

4 - Prince Ranieri (1883-1973)
Brother to the last Duke.

What was the problem with Prince Alfonso? In 1901 his father, Prince Carlo, married Doña María de las Mercedes, Infanta de España, Princess of Asturias. Heiress to the throne of Spain. Prince Alfonso was their son. When his father Prince Carlo married his mother, he had to renounce his rights in the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.

When the Duke of Calabria died in 1960, the logic way of thinking was:

1 - Prince Carlo (1870-1949)
Brother of the last Duke. In 1960 he was already dead. One son.

2 - Prince Alfonso (1901-1964)
The son to Nr 1. No dynast because his father renounced his rights.

3 - Prince Gennaro (1882-1944)
Brother to the last Duke. In 1960 he was already dead. No issue.

4 - Prince Ranieri (1883-1973)
Brother to the last Duke.

Despite this logic, Prince Alfonso still saw himself as the rightful head of the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. Wasn't he the most senior male agnate? He claimed his father only had to renounce his rights in the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies as his fiancée, then the Princess of Asturias, was the Heiress to the throne of Spain. With the birth of her brother, the later King Alfonso XIII, this provision was no longer needed. So the "enforced" renouncation was repealed in his eye. The second argument: his uncle Prince Ranieri made an undynastical marriage with Maria Karolina Countess Zamoskya. This marriage did not meet the requirements of the House and therefore Prince Ranieri lost his place in the line of succession.

It is generally assumed that the royal houses of Europe do not go along with the claim of the "Spanish" Bourbon-Two Sicilies (now represented by Prince Pedro and Sofía Landaluce - picture) and support the claim of the "Italian" Bourbon-Two Sicilies (now Prince Carlo and Camilla Crociani - picture).

Thanks for the article. Nice to get some more information. The godmother of the new prince is Luna de Medina, daughter of Pss Gloria of Orleans-Braganca. The godfatehr is Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, a childhood friend of Pss Theresa. He could not attend the baptism and was represented by Prince Henry de Merode.
