We have obtained a high resolution Y-chromosome STR profile of Hughes de Bourbon, the French living male descendant of the Naundorff ’s family. This STR profile was compared to those of three members of the House of Bourbon recently published (Larmuseau et al, Eur J Hum Genet 2013 ; oct.9). In our own system of comparison based on 27 STRs, the Hughes de Bourbon profile is very similar to those of the other de Bourbon published, differing from them by six mutations only. Hughes de Bourbon had also the same STR of sub-terminal differentiation (S21), and belongs to the Y-subhaplogroup R1b1a2a1a1. These datas are sufficient to include Hughes de Bourbon as a member of the House of Bourbon.
