From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Napoleonic line of succession is the line of claimants to the French imperial throne, recognized by a majority of Bonapartists. The current line was founded by Napoléon Bonaparte's younger brother Jerome Bonaparte, though earlier claimants (including the three reigning emperors, Napoléon I, Napoléon II, and Napoléon III) were descended from Napoléon himself or his younger brother Louis Bonaparte.

List of claimants

Each claimant is son of the previous claimant, except where otherwise noted.

After this point, the succession is disputed between father and son, son and grandson respectively of Napoléon VI Louis.
