We are subject to believe some of the royal descendants are alive today but are not treated royally. Also, Solomon and David had so many children who were scattered to all nations, you may have some in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. We just do not know who they are. See wiki- kings of Judah 

There were no good kings in Samaria, but there were some in Judah, we colored their names in green.

I pray this has been edifying in the name of the Son of God.
