Orleanist Dukes of Anjou

On December 8, 2004, Henry, Count of Paris, Duke of France, Head of the Royal House of France and Orléanist Pretender to the French Throne as Henri VII, granted his nephew Charles Philippe the title of Duke of Anjou. Anjou is one of the former titles of the Bourbon-Orléans line since its founder, Philippe I, Duc d'Orleans, younger son of Louis XIII, held the style Duke of Anjou from his birth until 1660 when changing it to Orleans (the Anjou title reverted to crown, and soon Louis XIV gave it to his own, short-lived younger son, after which it was used by later Bourbon princes).

Pretender Dukes of Anjou of the Spanish line

In 1941, Jaime, Duque de Segovia, claimed to have succeeded his father the exiled King Alfonso XIII of Spain as heir-male of the House of Capet and therefore as Legitimist claimant to the French throne. He then adopted the title of Duke of Anjou, as formerly born by his ancestor Felipe V of Spain.
