In the unlikely event that France decides to go back and be a monarchy again, the guy next in line to be king is ... an Indian lawyer named Balthazar de Bourbon:
A restoration of the monarchy in France is, of course, improbable. But so is the story of how a possible heir to the throne, a dauphin from the royal house of Bourbon, lives in relative obscurity here in this lakeside city in central India, where he practices law, putters around the family farm and nurses hopes that his lineage, if not his birthright, might one day be recognized by his glittering European relations.
"I am born an Indian," De Bourbon says. "But the fact of life is that I belong to the royal family of France."
