You mention that there have been 21 people which have been able to call themselves “Napoléon Bonaparte”. Is there a list of them?

I have made such a list myself and numbered them after birth year:

1. Giuseppe Napoleone Buonaparte / “Pepe” / Joseph Napoléon Bonaparte / José I Napoléon / Ghjaseppu Nabulione Bonaparte (1768 – 1844).

2. Napoleone Buonaparte / “Nabolio” / Napoléon I Bonaparte / “the Eagle” (1769 – 1821).

3. Luigi Napoleone Buonaparte / Louis Napoléon Bonaparte / Lodewijk I Napoleon / Luigi Nabulione Bonaparte (1778 – 1846).

4. Napoléon Charles Bonaparte / Napoleon Karel Bonaparte (1802 – 1807).

5. Napoléon Louis Bonaparte / Napoleon Lodewijk Bonaparte / Napoleon Ludwig Bonaparte (1804 –1831).

6. Jerome Napoleon Patterson / Jérôme Napoléon Bonaparte (1805 – 1870).

7. Charles Louis Napoléon Bonaparte / Karel Lodewijk Napoleon Bonaparte / Karl Ludwig Napoleon Bonaparte / Napoléon III (1808 – 1873).

8. Napoléon François Joseph Charles Bonaparte / Napoleone Francesco Giuseppe Carlo Bonaparte / Napoleon Franz Joseph Karl Bonaparte / “the Eaglet” (1811 – 1832).

12. Luciano Luigi Giuseppe Napoleone Bonaparte / Lucien Louis Joseph Napoléon Bonaparte (1828 – 1895).

13. Jérôme Napoléon Bonaparte (1830 – 1893).

14. Napoléon Charles Grégoire Jacques Philippe Bonaparte / Napoleone Carlo Giorgio Giacomo Filippo Bonaparte (1839 – 1899).

15. Napoléon Eugène Louis Jean Joseph Bonaparte / Napoléon Eugenio Luis Juan José Bonaparte / Napoleon Eugene Louis John Joseph Bonaparte (1856 – 1879).

16. Roland Napoléon Bonaparte (1858 – 1924).

17. Napoléon Victor Jérôme Frédéric Bonaparte (1862 – 1926).

18. Jérôme Napoléon Charles Bonaparte (1878 – 1945).

19. Louis Napoléon Jérôme Victor Emmanuel Leopold Marie Bonaparte (1914 – 1997).

20. Charles Marie Jérôme Victor Napoléon Bonaparte (born in 1950).

21. Jean-Christophe Louis Ferdinand Albéric Napoléon Bonaparte (born in 1986).

Names within quotation marks are nicknames. There might have been more but these are all I know about. All are related on the father’s side except number 7 and 15. Number 7 was born outside marriage and number 15 was his son. The two youngest ones are still alive. The youngest is the same Jean-Christophe which is mentioned in The Bonapartic clone. The second youngest is his father Charles.
