"The rule of France by men of the House of Bourbon began with King Henri IV in 1589 C.E. and continued until the beheading of his direct paternal descendant King Louis XVI in 1793. Several years ago, researchers analyzed a mummified head and a blood-soaked cloth that they believed might belong to the two kings, and concluded that the royal paternal line belonged to haplogroup G. In a more recent study, however, a different set of researchers tested three living men who are direct descendants of the Bourbon kings. Their efforts revealed that the male lineage of the House of Bourbon is actually a branch of haplogroup R-M405." (23&me, 2020)


Ludvig XVI (23. elokuuta 1754, Versailles – 21. tammikuuta 1793, Pariisi) oli Ranskan ja Navarran kuningas (1774–1789) ja ranskalaisten kuningas (1789–1792).

Ludvig Augustus oli Ranskan kruununperillisen, dauphin Ludvigin (1729–1765) poika. Hänen äitinsä, dauphinin toinen puoliso, oli Maria Josepha von Sachsen (1731–1767), jonka isä oli Saksin vaaliruhtinas Friedrich August II (1733–1763), Puolan kuninkaana nimellä Augustus III (1734–1763), sekä äiti Maria-Josepha von Habsburg. Näin Ludvig Augustus oli Ranskan kuninkaan Ludvig XV:n ja tämän puolison Marie Leszczyńskan pojanpoika. Syntyessään hän sai arvokseen Berryn herttuan tittelin, jota hän kantoi aina isänsä 20. joulukuuta 1765 tapahtuneeseen kuolemaan saakka. Tämän jälkeen hänestä tuli kruununperillinen, sillä hänen vanhempi veljensä Burgundin herttua Ludvig Josef oli kuollut jo aiemmin (1751–1761). Ludvig Augustuksesta tuli kuningas Ludvig XVI 10. toukokuuta 1774

Ludvig Augustus avioitui 16. toukokuuta 1770 Versaillesissa, Reimsin arkkipiispa-herttuan toimittamassa seremoniassa Itävallan arkkiherttuattaren Marie-Antoinetten (1755–1793) kanssa. Hänen vanhempansa olivat Pyhän saksalais-roomalaisen keisarikunnan keisari Frans I ja keisarinna Maria Teresia, joka oli myös Unkarin, Böömin kuningatar sekä Itävallan hallitseva arkkiherttuatar.

Avioliitosta syntyivät lapset Marie-Thérèse Charlotte (1778–1851), eli kuninkaallinen Madame, joka avioitui sukulaisensa Angoulêmen herttuan (1775–1844) kanssa Louis-Joseph-Xavier-François (1781–1789), ensimmäinen dauphin Louis-Charles (1785–1795), toinen dauphin ja tuleva kuningas Ludvig XVII Sophie-Beatrix (1786–1787)
