Just wanted to add that the Valois and Bourbon/Orleáns dynasties are a part of the original Capetinian family as they were minor lines descending from Hugo Capet. Odo of Paris and Robert I. were members of the "Robertines"-family, of which Hugo Capet was a descendant, too, as Hugo was the grandson of king Robert I.

What is shown here as Capetians are the kings of the "ligne des capetiens directe" - a line from father to son - which ended in 1328 with the death of king Charles IV. The general assembly was called in and the same year the Count of Valois, as direct male line descendant (grandson) of king Charles III. as capetinian as well, was voted for as king Philippe VI. The Valois-dynasty was founded which reigned till 1589, when the next line of the capetinian dynasty started their reign, the Bourbons who descended from king Louis IX (Saint Louis). Henri IV. had been the son from the marriage of Navarra's queen Jeanne d'Albret and Antoine de Bourbon, a male-line capetinian. His grandson Philippe, younger brother of Louis XIV. and duke of Orléans, formed the Orléans-branch of the Bourbons, where king Louis-Philippe was descended from.
