The Duke of Anjou of Bourbon ...

So I was watching the West Wing this morning.  And its the season where Zoey (the Presidents daughter) is now dating Jean-Paul - the Viscomte de Bourbon.  So I googled to see if it was a real thing

And the Prince de Bourbon is a real thing.  And here he is......

I introduce you to Louis Alphonse of Bourbon, Duke of Anjou[1][2] (Spanish: Luis Alfonso Jaime Marcelino Manuel Víctor María de Borbón y Martínez-Bordiú, French: Louis Alphonse Gonzalve Victor Emmanuel Marc de Bourbon;[3][4][5] born 25 April 1974, in Madrid) is a member of the Royal House of Bourbon, and one of the current pretenders to the defunct French throne as Louis XX.
He is recognized as the "Head of the House of Bourbon" and rightful claimant to the French crown by the Legitimist faction of French royalists, who also considered him as the senior male heir of Hugh Capet, being the senior descendant of King Louis XIV of France (ruled 1643–1715) through his grandson King Philip V of Spain.[6]

Louis Alphonse is a great-grandson of King Alfonso XIII of Spain and second cousin of King Philip VI of Spain. Through his mother, he is also a great-grandson of Spain's former dictator Francisco Franco.[3]

And yes ... I'd take a bite of that if it was served up to me.  A Royal Bite.
Take care all.
