Enter new descendants
of Hugues Capet live!

Collective long-term work, The Capetian Descent has been unflaggingly carrying on with their work. Their aim is to find all the descendants of Hugh Capet, king of France, whose lineage is still represented today.

Nine out of ten European are descendants of Charlemagne, probably a little fewer are descendants of Hugh Capet ! This purely statistical statement is confirmed every day by the numerous recordings of new lineages with multiple ramifications in every social background.
It is certainly an ambitious aim but it is so fascinating and full of surprises ! Famous people such as : Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, Frédéric Mitterrand, Philippe de Villiers, Bernadette Chirac, François Fillon, Ségolène Royal. And beyond the seas, the capetians of the American world: George Bush, Barack Obama, Céline Dion, etc.


The Capetian database has more than 710.000 individuals (May 2016, 20th issue). The CD-ROM is delivered with software especially created for this project : you will be able to read and print the ancestry and descendant charts as well as the lists and forms, as you like ! More...

The armorial

The armorial included in the CD-ROM contains 5,400 coats of arms representing the arms of more than 250,000 individuals from the Capetian database. You can display color family trees and print beautiful "sixteen quarters" charts and impressive heraldic charts. More...


For each individual from the Capetian database you can fill as many notes and pictures as you like. In a few seconds, Capedia automatically composes your book in pdf format and in color and you do not have to worry about pagination, chaptering, placing coats of arms, pictures and portraits. More...
