Actually, all of these are still descended from Hugh Capet in the male line. When I say "Capetians," I mean everyone who is descended from Hugh Capet in the male line.Hmm the capetian are extinct now. So logically I would say no. Actually there are three pretenders for the throne of France :
-Louis de Bourbon, duc d'Anjou => the Bourbon party from the Spanish branch (definitely separated from the bourbon of France in 1714).
-Jean d'Orléans, comte de Paris => The Orléans party, cousin of the Bourbon (the most legitimate for me).
- Jean Christophe Napoléon => The bonapartist party, the descendant of Napoleon 1er empereur des Français (the less legitimate for me).
While the direct Capetians died out in the 14th century, the Bourbons are also Capetians.
