Just curious. Are there descendants of Napoleon Bonaparte living in France?

I believe so though Napoleon’s one legitimate son died without heirs. There are descendants of Napoleon’s siblings and cousins still alive today but they have no special status in France.

There is Jean-Christophe:
“Jean-Christophe is the great-great-great-grand-nephew of Emperor Napoleon I (who has no legitimate direct descendants) through the emperor’s youngest brother, Jérôme, King of Westphalia. Through his mother, he is a descendant of King Louis XIV of France and through his great-grandmother, Princess Clémentine of Belgium, he descends from Leopold II of Belgium, William IV, Prince of Orange, Charles III of Spain, Frederick William I of Prussia, George II of Great Britain and Louis Philippe I, King of the French, who was the last king to rule France, while his great-great-grandfather was Prince Napoléon Bonaparte, the cousin of the Emperor Napoleon III, France’s most recent monarch.”
