So it's Napoleon half the time and Napoléon the other?

Yes I noticed too. I have fixed it now. Chris Buttigieg 20:35, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Who became pretender in 1879?[edit]

This article, and the one on the subject's son Victor, both seem to take the position that the Prince Imperial had the right to designate his heir in his will. While such things happen, it seems like it would be more controversial than just saying that Victor succeeded. The formal succession law of the Second Empire would have stated that Prince Napoleon, and not his son, was the heir to the Prince Imperial. I don't see how it would be completely clear that the Prince Imperial had the right to unilaterally change the succession by will. Napoleon III had had the right under the constitution of 1852 to set the order of succession, but he designated Jerome and his heirs as successors by means of a formal decree. That constitution had itself been superseded in 1870 by a new constitution, which specifically designated Prince Napoleon Joseph Charles Paul (i.e., this guy) as heir in the absence of direct heirs to Napoleon III. Whatever the prince imperial may have said, it seems like Prince Napoleon had a considerably stronger claim to the pretendership than his son. Furthermore, Prince Napoleon was always an ambitious man, and according to this article was very angry about getting passed over. I am highly doubtful that it is NPOV to ignore any possible claim on his part. john k (talk) 03:34, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Photo of Napoléon Joseph with his two sons[edit]

This article is illustrated with a photo of Napoléon Joseph together with his two sons Victor and Louis. The picture page states that the date of the photo is unknown. However, it is possible to make an educated guess about the year based on how old the two brothers look. Victor looks like he was in his early teens (13 – 15 years old). Louis looks like he was 12 when the photo was taken. We know that Victor was born in 1862 and Louis two years later. So we can say that Victor was 14 and his younger brother Louis 12 years old. If the photo was taken the same year as Louis turned 12 it would have been in 1876. This is the my best estimate.
