How many kinds of Franciscans are there anyway?

Francis of Assisi’s vision was so powerful, that there are literally hundreds of groups who call themselves Franciscan. There are three groups which belong to what is called the First Order of St. Francis: the friars of the Leonine Union (often called just “Franciscans” and whose initials are O.F.M., Order of Friars Minor), the Conventual Franciscan Friars (whose initials are O.F.M., Conv.) and the Capuchin Francisan Friars (whose initials are OFMCap.).
