Patrilineal descent

Felipe's patriline is the line from which he is descended father to son.

Patrilineal descent is the traditional principle behind membership in royal houses, as it can be traced back through the generations - which means that if Felipe were to choose an historically accurate house name it would be Robert, as all his male-line ancestors have been of that house.

Felipe is a member of the Spanish House of Bourbon, a sub-branch of the House of Bourbon, itself originally a branch of the House of France, and thus of the House of Capet and of the Robertians and possibly a branch of the Merovingians, but this link may not be reliable. The line can be traced back more than 1,600 years and is one of the oldest in Europe.
